Do You Kiss Your Pets?

Look at this beautiful painted turtle that Doodles, the cat, found for me! It came out of the pond, but returned quickly. I mean, slowly. But return it did. I certainly wouldn't want to kiss it! On the otherhand, I do kiss my pets, cats and dogs only. I've always done so. They are my furry little babies and I can't help myself. I carry Doodles around and squeeze and kiss him. He purrs and squeezes my hand with his paw. I just won't kiss him after he catches a critter. I wait until he takes a bath or two or three. Do you kiss your pets or are you afraid of germs?

I have always kissed our dogs, but our cat was a little devil and kissing her never ended well for us. Molly prefers I kiss her on the top of her head because she has told me I am the one with the germs, not her.

Some cats can be finicky regarding kisses. Doodles let's us know when he's had enough love and kisses. We move away like lightning due to his extra long claws and teeth. Lol about Molly!

My daughter has 2 parakeets now . . . but they will only let her kiss them . I have a friend who has a white cat . . . and oh you just know she kisses her. The cat (Mona Lisa) has red and pink lipstick kiss marks on her all the time !

Aww, the parakeets must love and trust your daughter. What color are they? I had blue and green growing up, but have seen white, too. Smart little birds! Lol! All my pets had lipstick on them at one time or another!!!!

I don't kiss, just never have, but I do hug them. Ally has the Husky attitude and doesn't care much for hugging but she loves when I talk to her and will let me pet her. My friend Carol used to breed huskies and told me it was normal for them to be a little stand offish.

@rebelann Sally was maybe three years old before she enjoyed pets. The dog kennel folks showed me to massage her chest. That seems to really make her happy.

Of course the fur kids get kisses. I tease the baby bobcat, kissing her when I can get away with having a face after I kiss her.

@DianneN This particular sweetie pie was not socialized well when she was a kit. Three years later, after moved in with us, she shows signs of blossoming into a house cat.

I don't usually kiss my pets and never have done really - except perhaps my pony when I was younger. I don't really know why as the germ aspect doesn't bother me much.

I'm not afraid of germs. I always kissed my dogs. I'll even kiss a horse. I don't kiss cats - I'm allergic to them.

I don't think I'd kiss a turtle either, though I was interacting with one (two, actually) the other day.

Mine get a hug and a kiss too behind their furry little ears. They are affectionate and will kiss me back usually on my hand, but sometimes lick my cheek.

We had a cat "Star" for 17 years and had to have him put down over a year ago, but I don't recall ever kissing him, couldn't get passed the hair going in my mouth. But I loved him held him and petted him, he would sit on my lap at the desktop computer. He would paw at my leg when I would be at the computer and I would give in and let him jump up. We miss him terribly. But I know when I go to heaven I will see him and my other pets too.

Our pets give us such joy while they are here on earth with us. Sounds like Star lived a long and happy life with you, and I'm sure you think of him often. I still think of our dear pets, too.
