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?

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 !

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.

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.
