Well My cat is really spoiled, He has to eat when & what I do, and the only cat food he will eat is science Diet.He sleeps with me, and goes everywhere in the house I go, he has to get up around my face and make me kiss on him, if i do not, he will bit at my finger till I do.He has got to have treats all the time. He is strickly an inside cat, never goes otdoors at all, unless he is on a leash. when I go on vacation, he goes along. At rest areas I walk him on a leash, people think he is a dog!! He has to sit on the bathtub and watch me take a bath, When I am gone, I leave a light and the T.V. on for him.My grown daughter calles him her Brother!

LOL Does it really matter if he is spoiled or not - heis obviously worth it! lol Bet your SO other spoils him just as much when he thinks no one is looking! lol Our cat Tia has made the most of my not being able to share a bed with my other half - if anyone else tries to lay oh his bed , even if it is just the kids watching tv she is not impressed - I think she thinks it is her bed now! xxxx

You know your pet is spoiled when ..... everywhere you go he gets pushed around in a baby stroller. You know your pet is spoiled when ..... everyone who sees you pushing your pet in a baby stoller stops to say, "I bet he's not spoiled". Hahahahahah Yep - mine is spoiled, but that's what I have him for. To spoil as much as I can. The little darlin'.

When your puppy is house broken before your baby is potty trained, your pet is spoiled. Enough said

My cat is extremely spoiled. She is a family member. She has a stubborn streak to her also. If she is laying on you and you want to stand up--she puts all her weight against you so you can't move her. When I go to bed, she follows me down the hallway and she will either sleep on my back or on top of my pillow just above my head. There is only certain food she will eat and if you don't give it to her in time--she meows, meows, meows until you give it to her. She will not drink water from a bowl--she has to have running cold water..lol Yes, my cat is very spoiled. I guess you know your pet is spoiled when you treat them as well as you would a family member--if not better.

You know when your pet is spoiled when you're the one who's trained, not him (or her)! I know my cats are spoiled. They have me very well trained and know exactly how to get me up out of bed to accompany them to the food bowl or water dish at night. I often wonder how they find their way during the daytime! (I love 'em anyway!)

Well when my dog was still alive we realized how spoiled he was, It took a while to notice. But when you would bring him back inside from his walk if it was summer time he would plop him self down right in front of the central air conditioner vent and in the winter right in front of the heater vent. He was also the only dog ever allowed on the furniture.

okay, i don't have a pet right now, but this is about my mother's dog. that dog is so spoiled that if it's raining outside the dog refuses to go out and do it's business without my mother or father going out with him with an umbrella. LOL! a little much i think, but it's also hilarious when you think about it. the dog has my parents trained not the other way around. God bless

Your pet is spoiled when you change your life for it. Like stop working when they come with a toy and expect you to drop everything and play with them. Or when they stretch out in the bed and don't leave you much room and you just deal with it because they're so cute. Or when you find yourself leaving the radio or tv on when you're gone so they won't be lonely. Oh wait....geez..my dogs are so spoiled!!! :-)

Let's see....where do I start? My cats all pretty much sleep ON TOP of hubby, whether he likes it or not. When he turns over, they just sort of walk on him (like an acrobat walking on a rolling ball) until he stops and they get comfy again. If I don't wake up to let one of my kitties under my covers, she just paws the covers back and climbs in and settles herself wherever she wants to, and literally paws the covers back over her! My sweet Meg, my Shar Pei that passed away a year ago, would always get my comforters and old pillows for her bed. Heaven forbid if she had to lay on the bare floor...she would give me "the look" until I would give in. The same goes for my two outside dogs. They each have their own comforters and afghans to sleep on. Anything else they tear up in disgust. LOL

My dog was spoiled, but when I had her I was a single parent. She used to sleep in bed with me, sit on the chairs, I would make her cups of tea every so often and she would get a little sunday dinner with me too. When my now husband came into my life, she was no longer allowed on the bed, I felt really sorry for her, she was there first really it was a bit unfair, but I made sure she had a big comfy beanbag to sleep on instead.

My puppers likes the bed but if we are all in it he prefers to sleep on the floor beside me. LOL!! I know if I got him a bean bag bed that he'd eat it. LOL!!!!
