BF and I are having an arguement about me kissing my cats. I kiss them all of the time, they are my babies. He googled it and found a list of diseases you can get from them and threw that in my face....even said he will stop kissing me if I don't stop kissing them. I dont really care though because I love them. Do you guys think it is really that big of a deal or is gross? I am wondering how many other people do it?

:hide I think its gross... but I kissed my pets when I was a kid *before* I actually started thinking about what germs and junk are on them.

ETA: I'm also highly allergic to cats/dogs, so keeping them as far away from my face as possible is my main goal and the only way we can keep her around.

I kiss my dogs about a hundred times a day and so far, I am disease-free. I think that is silly for your boyfriend to bring that up. :roll My doggies are also my babies. :love I say kiss away!

google the diseases you can get from kissing other people and show him. your list will be quite a bit larger.

I don't really kiss my cats because they aren't real lovey animals. But I did have a couple of cats I kissed. I kissed them on their heads, between the ears.:magwink

ETA: No I don't think you are gross!!!

well geez, it's not like you're kissing them on the nose or mouth, right? That's the only place I would think might be sketchy in terms of diseases (I don't know much about cat diseases, though...)

I kiss my dogs all the time, and occasionally my puppy will sneak in a kiss on my mouth...no diseases yet! lol

ETA: :rofl good point Vik!

Heheheh....

Yeah, I do. Especially my little one, Psycho Kitty, it *really* annoys her.

They're my lil buddies. I love 'em to death. If a girlfriend threatened to stop kissing me if I didn't stop kissing them, she'd be on the street corner with her bags packed. Sionara, bitch.

I mainly kiss them on top of the head, every now and then a super fuzzy belly.

I do have to admit though that my new kitten loves people food (especially bananas) and if she smells it on your breath she will try and lick your face (mainly chin), and she does sneak one in when she lays on my chest every now and then. He doesnt know that though, he would probably flip :rofl

I agree...I would never stop kissing them for anything, even if everyone on here had answered back that it was gross. I was just wondering if I am way off here. They are like my kids and I love them like crazy (probably too much actually :rofl )

See...this is what I don't understand.

Any normal person should be able to see that, and go "awwwwwwww, how cute!"

:rofl When I read your original post I thought you meant kissing your pets on the mouth, which yes I do think is gross. However, I always kissed my dog on the head (and sometimes her muzzle) and I don't see anything wrong with that. They're lovable animals!

I don't kiss my cats but they'll often rub their faces against my cheek or they rub their nose on mine. But maybe that's them kissing me? :IDK

I don't have any pets. I would not though - I do think it's kind of gross, but that may be an aversion due to being allergic to all things furry.
