How do people want to be spoken to and treated?

Me too! chuckle

I stepped on the cat in a dark hallway several weeks ago and I'm still apologizing.
 Quoting: Turtle Flower


Ha, that's because they won't let you forget it!

I stepped on my dog's paw one damn time...years ago! Now whenever I am asking her if she did something, she slowly raises that same paw to remind me of it. She even quivers her lips a bit to get to me.

I constantly talk to my kids and they talk back and get very involved in whatever I am trying to do.

When they demand something I jump right to it. I know my place. I bet I say excuse me at least four times a day. Repeatedly if I am trying to go to the bathroom and they are walking slowly.

I'm trying to teach the cat to say "yes, ma'am" and "no ma'am" but so far she just stares at me instead of repeating it.

Silencing yourself and living in the dark just means you've left yourself exposed to the type of people who wander the dark looking for victims who won't scream.

Re: Do You Say Excuse Me To Your Pets?
LOL, yes I do say that to them. When I sneeze, my kitties say bless you in their own special sound. So cute. The boy comes in and says my name - the vowel sounds - to let me know the coffee is ready. He speaks in complete sentences, kitty speak.
But the other day, my girl cracked me up. I was about to clean the litter box when she came and sat there looking at it. I told her to go ahead, and I'd clean it after she was through. She gave me a look as if to say "no thank you, I'll wait." And she did. LOL

When the geese I feed daily show up, my babies come running in to tell me the geese are waiting. How sweet.

They surprise me and make me smile all of the time.

Re: Do You Say Excuse Me To Your Pets?
Just "Excuse Me"?

I have entire conversations with them as the cats answer back with meows.

One has a very distinct "Hello" meow and answers my greeting with it.

They can and do develop a vocabulary with you!

Edit to add: he doesn't actually speak English, but in his language it means hello.
 Quoting: Louis in Richmond


Ah yup. Do the same with the cat and dog.
I apologise if I stand on them by accident, not if they get underfoot.
Takes effort to do that when you're a German Shepard
chuckle

Can also be amazing the vocabulary they pick up - you'll throw an off hand "oh just do x" and off they'll trot and do it

Re: Do You Say Excuse Me To Your Pets?
Like when they are underfoot in the kitchen or bathroom? Excuse me, excuse me.

I say it a lot in the chicken house as the chickens are underfoot as I'm trying to feed them, "Excuse me, excuse me."

The cats and dogs have figured out it means get the hell out of the way, the chickens not so much chuckle
 Quoting: Turtle Flower


No, OP. I tend to tell my cat, Tom-Tom, when I had him with me anyways, "Move it, Fur Thing!". He would usually give me a dirty look for it. Other than that meow at me for all of my love and attention.

Re: Do You Say Excuse Me To Your Pets?
And yes, we talk to our animals also, more than excuse me, and please and thank you.

Nice to see that pet lovers enjoy talking to their critters. Fun thread!

It's funny when I go get the eggs I ask if they did anything good, and they run in and start responding in their chicken language.

I recognize most of their eggs, and praise each one, and tell the others they will do better tomorrow.

One of our cats doesn't like us to shower without her, although she doesn't like to be in the room while we're showering, so she reaches under the door and pulls the dirty clothes out, lol. She's the same one who races me to the bathroom to guard the toilet.

As soon as the shower is done, and the door open, she jumps inside to lick up the remaining water.

I wish the chickens would learn it. It's funny when I have to ask the cat to excuse me when I'm trying to sit on the toilet, lol, she likes to beat me to the bathroom and guard it.

WHAT is that all about? This happened to me this A.M. and
I nearly fell over him! Is this something most cats do?
I just thought he believed I was so wobbly I wouldn't be
able to find it! (Been a fun exhausting Christmas this year,

Love this thread--I'll start to say "excuse me" and see
if there's any reaction! That's so cute!

I don't know why the one cat races me to the bathroom and blocks the toilet, lol. I say excuse me, and she moves away. I'm talking all day, if she's in the house, and in the middle of the night, and often that's her time, when I'm sitting, too bump my nose with hers.

My cat always wants to go before me into the toilet, and does it slowly. When I finally sit down I don't get allowed to sit for the demands.
She licks the water from a bucket. From glasses. Wants to cover any drink like wee.

Re: Do You Say Excuse Me To Your Pets?
I never know what to say to the cat, actually, so I've started this whole narrative in which I ask her how the cats are doing back in her country of origin and if she meows I say "And then they did WHAT to your village??" and "They burned down everything??"

I don't have problems....

Not at all.

I just have no idea what you're supposed to say when an animal is staring at you.

I lately often yell at my cat cause he's vacating behind my 55 inch screen and every time he jumps from it, ending his nap the screen is swaying like it would be earthquake.

He understands I'm angry but doesn't get the reason.

Re: Do You Say Excuse Me To Your Pets?
I planed to buy some firecrackers this season, pirate mark the green ones, for the catz. I mean I got bunch of stray cats outside about 8-10 always guarding my windows, downstairs, upstairs at the main entrance is one. Its very annoying but then I thought a bit and just let them be. Maybe they're guarding something who gives a shit...

When I feed my dogs their morning food I like to say. "What would you like today? The usual? OK. A bowl of dry dog food coming up!" They never laugh. Sometimes my little fuzzy girl gives me one of her looks. But deep down she knows it is funny.
