I was prepared to hate that, but it was actually pretty spot-on.

I like that in a place largely bereft of furniture there is a glass display with turtle mutants occupying the position of pride in it.

I'm pretty sure I am someone's cat-friend.

What happened to the dog rummaging in the garbage can and eating disgusting leftovers?
And the cat standing in the litter box kicking litter all over the bathroom floor?

Yes, I have both cats and a dog.

Spot-on indeed.

This is pretty much how I *do* view actual dogs and cats and why I don't want pets.

This dog is NOT an Akita. A guy who ran a bookstore I visited had one. The dog checked me out, saw I wasn't a threat and walked away. My cousin also had one. When Georgy bounded up to me and licked my hand I was told I'd received a great honor, since she was usually aloof.

Oh man, this one is even better than the first.

When does the jar of peanut butter come out?

That Akita sounds like a cat-dog hybrid, otherwise known as a puppycat, and should be tested for Powers.

I dunno. My cat acts more like a dog with other people than a cat. He starts out all friendly, then gets all investigatory, then goes back to friendly.

I watched both of those and saw no crotch-sniffing and no chest-kneading. Needs more work.

The dudes who play the dog and the cat play 'em pretty spot-on.

You go out there.
No YOU go out there!

The first one did have butt sniffing. Maybe they just couldn't bring themselves to go for the fully monty.

This is so dead on.

The 1.5 year-old pitbull is at the window right now, barking her fool head off at nothing. The 14 year-old cat is alternating between giving her a Death Glare and giving me a look of ''Why do you keep this dumbshit?''

The random attack on the blinds was DEAD ON.

Bahaha, this is 100% accurate. Especially the cat creepin' on bathroom activities, and the dog smushing himself between 2 people on the couch. One of my dogs -has- to be in between me and Mr Fig's heads if we are lying in bed watching tv.

The dog squeezing in between the two people was my favorite part, too. Our dog is so good at oozing into every available molecule of space between my partner and me, I'm pretty sure her dad was The Liquidator.

Love it, but also a plus 1 for more butt sniffing.

My 12 month old pup skits away when people bend down to pat her, but then moves around behind so she can engage in extended butt sniffing. She once stuck her noce down the pants of a plumber who was bending over in the bathroom. When the plumber quickly spun around and glared at me, I had to say "Wasn't me!"
