    So is this what a house pet does when all its masters are gone each and every day: nap?

    Yup, the whole “glad to see you again!” thing is just an act.

    No, not always…
    We had a miniature Dachshund mix that accidently got closed inside our bedroom. When we got home the dog had tried to escape by digging through the coverlet, covers, sheets and mattress and into the boxsprings… I hated that dog, but I couldn’t get rid of it… a gift from my mom, unannounced, and my daughter loved it (she was about 6-7 at the time)… That wasn’t the only problem we had with that damn dog, too much to enumerate. We had already had a Beagle mix for 16+ yrs that was much better.

    In all we have had over 175 cats, mostly strays that adopted us and 10 dogs. This doesn’t count bunnies, rats, mice, guinea pigs (rosie lasted 5 yrs!!!) and assorted snakes… Oh, and two parakeets…

    @templo SUD: That’s what our dog does, sure enough.

    So not true. They run to us with their legs crossed ready to go outside.

    When pets destroy stuff it’s typically because they are bored, frustrated, and under exercised/trained.

    The “dog” seems to have recovered nicely from the nail trimming trama. Hard to say about the “humans”

    Over 175 cats (even over a period of time)?? Wow, I hope you have a lot of land or a big house or both. That is a lot. But you are a good person for taking care of all of those animals, so bless you.

    This is a lot like today’s “Drabble.” The wife and mom has a lot to do but the cat just lays there with nothing to do which ticks her off. Some days it would be nice to switch places with our pets.
