Neuticles allows pets to retain their natural look, self esteem and aids the pet's owner with the trauma associated with altering.

Very. I hear the large sizes are frequently unavailable due to shortages.

Also Truck Nutz exist.

We seem to a very testicle-fixated culture.

I like the angry cat in the upper left hand corner of the screen. That cat has the right idea.

The cat and dog in the lower right corner just look concerned. The dog is like, "You've bought us condoms. You've come home with condoms for your pets. Are you okay?" and the cat goes on, "You know you own one cat and one dog, right? What are you planning or imagining is gonna happen here dude, I worry about this."

The dog is like YOU BETTER NOT BE THINKING ABOUT TOUCHING MY WEINER and the cat is like OMG YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT TOUCHING HIS WEINER.

*snerk* Back when Neuticles first came on the market, I was a regular participant in this twice-yearly trivia contest run by the alums of Williams College in Massachusetts. It was a dial-in format for the most part - the hosts would ask a question and then play a song, and teams dialed in, and you could keep talking to the person who answered for the whole duration of the song asking for hints just so long as you gave them the correct answer by the last ote of the song.

So there I am sitting in a room with 20 other guys on my team, and the hosts broadcast their next question - "they come in pairs, they're made of soft polyurethane, and they range from a half an inch to two inches in diameter. What new medical product are they?" I had coincidentally just read about Neuticles in some magazine's "news of the weird" column the night before, and so I launched myself past my puzzled teammates at the phone and dialed, and as soon as the other person answered - not five notes into the song - I triumphantly shouted, "Neuticles!"

there was a tiny pause, and the other person said, "wow. Yes. Gimme your team name, you got the point." we hung up, and I turned around to see the entire rest of my team staring at me in bafflement, and I spent the rest of the song explaining to them what the hell they were and how the hell I'd known that.

....About 4 in the morning, another slam-dunk question someone else on the team answered about barnacles prompted our team leader to call in a second time and score with a joke team name - "Neuticles for Barnacles."

FWIW, there are humans who get their testicles removed for whatever reason, e.g. cancer. If the prosthetic industry can make an extra buck on the side from weirdos who want their dogs's scrotums to look authentically bouncy, more power to them.

I have such a prejudice against "pet people" idiots that won't neuter their ill-mannered animal that I glanced at this and thought.. yeah that's probably a thing now.

The SPCA can't stress that message hard enough.

Some folks I know have the BIGGEST, most ill-behaved, untrained chocolate lab I have ever had the misfortune to meet. Chocolate, with nuts, of course. Because the Mr. has some sort of Freudisan problem as well as thinking balls make a dog hunt better. I've never seen so much bird hunting paraphernalia in one house in all my life, and the bloody dog can't even sit, let alone retrieve. The Mrs. just lovey-woveys her pupppykins too much. (and besides, look how big he is, he must be breedable! Make money!) Never mind he's too big for breed standard.

Everytime I see him, I wonder when they'll be getting rid of him, because he's so awful to be around, and he hurts people. (Certainly not mean, just accidently knocking them over, scratching them when he jumps up, etc) It's over a year now, and not getting better. Wack his nuts and send him to the trainer.

For the dog's sake.

I spent so much time years ago passing test strips through my diabetic dog's urine stream that I didn't even blink at the thought of these being real.

I'm a tabletop gaming nerd, so I figure I should get some big ol' d20s up in there.

Better that than d4s, amirite?

This was sick, because they had me for a minute. I thought... 'Cats have spikey tools, how would this work... Also how would a human even catch the cat to put it on the cat... This I gotta see..'
Only to be faked out by the SPCA.

(Not that I had a bunch of un-fixed cats running around. I had my cats fixed except for a Birman I had.
She was confined to the house.)

I actually am very big on spaying and neutering cats and dogs.

This is a pretty funny ad for SPCA's services and I had to laugh.

This post gave me chills. I have several cats and dogs all of which are fixed except for my shepherd. He is being bred, not for show dogs, but for working dogs. He's the first unfixed dog I've ever had so I've had to learn to deal with him differently. I would never take him to a dog park for instance. He is a good dog and is well behaved but man he has a lot of energy.

Okay the chills part. Lets just say that unlike other fixed dogs that I've had his little friend makes a fairly regular appearance. Sometimes it's hard not to laugh at the poor guy as he hobbles around. His little friend is pretty durn big and the thought of people actually trying to put condoms on that thing(fake or not) is just OMG NO, SO WRONG JUST NO. I imagine him just giving me this puzzled puppy dog look (he's the biggest baby, suck up dog) and hobbling around.

I need to have these imaginings out of my head.

I'm (unfortunately) picturing the infomercial, wherein the hellish, black-and-white 'despair vision', some poor sap is still using plastic cones on his pets' genitalia, throwing up their hands in frustration and proclaiming "There MUST be a better way!"
