    Default Do you talk to your pets?

    Yes or no? I do. Even when people are listening.

    Sometimes I'll lock my dog in my room with me. I'll talk to her occasionly if I'm really pissed or just need to let some stuff out that I wouldn't tell a person.
    I'll put something here...eventually

    All the time. I live alone with my rabbits so they're the only other creatures I have to talk to really.

    I tell her she's a good or bad dog, tell her she's pretty, tell her to get off the couch, tell her to get out of the doorway, tell her not to bark...

    I am super polite to my dogs. If I step on a paw or knock into them when walking I always say sorry. I also tell them all about things. Talking with animals is a good relaxation technique.

    Yeah. I don't have a one-sided conversation to get things off my chest, but I will say things to the cats from time-to-time. I tell them pretty much everyday how cute and fluffy they are (well, the one's fluffy), and that I love them very much. I tend to tease the one cat for being fat, but tell her I love her anyway. It was the same with my hamster when I had her as a kid.

    I say, "Hi, Kitty!!" whenever I see my cat. (We named him Kitty. Aren't we creative?)

    Yeah. I had a full conversation with my dog once and it was better than talking to most people. He even told me he'd like to do it again.

    Ok, ok. I don't hold full conversations, but I sometimes do talk to my pets. When I'm extremely bored because I can't sleep during the day.

    I have one sided venting sessions with my lizards sometimes, and their complete obliviousness is a nice reminder of the triviality of my current problems in the grand scheme of things. I also root them on when they're hunting crickets and try and then congratulate them on their hunting skills. My dog just gets the usual baby talk, my dear lizards get most of the personal, from the heart, things.
    I'm a really cool kid.

    Yeah I always do. XD I tell my cat that she's "the best cat ever" and try to console her by saying "Are those mean dogs after you again?" xD And then when she comes into my room she'll do a "PRRR" noise (not quite like a normal purr) and I'll go "HIII~" and she'll do it again. x) I talk to my dogs too..like "Hi Jenna!~ Do you want to play?" or "You're a good girl/boy." (I have three dogs, and tbh I can't think of exactly what I tell them. I just say some random things. I normally tell them "Hi guys!"

    If I get upset I normally go sulk in my room and my cat comes in I'll tell her that I'm sad, and why. Then I'll thank her for being there. ^^;

    So yeah, I talk to my pets all the time.

    Oh yeah, I communicate with my bird a lot. He'll say some random stuff and continue to talk. xDDD (but it's more like a copy and repeat sort of thing)

    All of them, all the time--even my fish (Gallywix. He's a big, greedy, fat-***ed Silver Shark). Usually, I just talk to Gallywix when I'm feeding him or when I put him back in his tank after it has been cleaned. I talk to my cats more often.
    I will be on here very, very rarely. The account is not dead, per se, but I will not be on often. This has become a den of hatred, hostility, and anger. It is not the SPPF it was when I joined, and I really dislike coming here. To those of you who were nice to me and were my friend, thank you. Goodbye.

    Most frequently, their names. For example, while petting my cat, I will say, "How's my Bella-Bella," a few times. Come to think of it, I always call all of our animals by their names doubled.

    However I also tell the dogs to be quiet. When they start barking, I literally say, "You be quiet!" in a deep voice, and they listen. It's probably the tone that does it.

    Sometimes when I pass his bowl I'd tell my fish "Hey, Skyler.". He's named after Skyler Gordy/SkyBlu lol
    But you have to admit, for a part-time Nazi

    He's freaking hot.

    Yes. I even go as far as to putting on a strange voice similar to how parents sometimes talk to babies. I mean, I get a response; my dog twists her twists her head from side to side, but I strongly suspect she thinks "WTH is HAPPENING?!"
