Tell me something funny or odd or sweet that your pet does...

... except you must use the words "my roommate" instead of "my cat" or "my dog" (or whatever your pet is).


My roommate likes to sleep with shoes.

My roommate steals my underwear from the laundry basket.

21. My male roommate sits on the side of the tub as I bathe and demands that I let the cold water

trickle into my hand for him to drink. When I am not bathing, he insists that I keep a washcloth tucked into the overflow drain of the tub and a small leak from the faucet. Then I am required to sit on the side of the tub and hold my hand just so, in order to guide the trickle down my hand so that he can either lick it from my fingers or from the tucked in washcloth.

He refuses standing water, and demands that I be actively involved when he drinks from the bathtub faucet, and since I worry about his kidneys being harmed by inadequate water, I accede to his demands.

67. The late, oh-so-great Mr. Beau Brummell would bury a bone in plain sight.

I can’t refer to him as “My Roommate” because he was so much more than that. He will be gone 16 years this coming summer and I still miss him every single day.

“BB” would carry a bone or a rawhide chew to the middle of the wall in the living room, and place it along the baseboard...(damn, I only wish I had made a video of him doing this) and when I say “Place” I mean just that...he would carefully select a spot along the floor and set the item down and proceed to bury it.

With imaginary dirt.

He would make the motion most dogs do when pushing dirt they have dug up out of a hole in the lawn, meaning he would look as if he is shoving dirt back over the item with his snout!

It was charming and bizarre at the same time! Here he was, standing at the center of the wall in the carpeted living room, pushing a pile of dirt only he could see, covering a rawhide chew up so no one could see it.

I watched him actually inspect his work and then walk away! Of course, there was no dirt and the toy is just sitting there, plain as day!

He was so utterly charming, and had so many funny and unique quirks that I could write a book on his antics.

My bud. My everlasting Beau Brummel. Wherever you are, old friend, I know you are making them smile.

The Elegant Tourist

Every evening, right around bedtime, give or take ten minutes, paces in front of me and my husband and meows insistently until we give in and go up to bed.

My roommate then jumps up on the bed to tuck us in, settles in and purrs for awhile, and finally jumps down and lies at the top of the stairs to guard us all night as we sleep.

96. My roommates

My male roommate believes that he's not fed enough and will go dumpster diving in the kitchen trash can for human food. A few years ago, I placed a couple of bricks in the trash can to keep him from knocking it over. The bricks worked and kept him from knocking over the kitchen trash. Now, he's so desperate, he stands up and leans over the kitchen trash can and removes scraps of food with his front claws and paws. Every year, we are fat-shamed at the veterinarians at yearly check-ups.


My female roommate has a strict no-touching rule. The only acceptable place for any petting is only done at the food dish. As I crawl into bed and get all comfy, she jumps up on my side of the bed and walks across my feet to get to her side of the bed. I have to stifle my laughter because she always breaks her own no-touching rule when getting into bed.

Mr. Kishma, is our older shelter cat rescue and he's a bit dim, but also super loving. His favorite things are mealtimes and bed, where he always perches on top of us.

125. 3 American Gascons

My roommates (fur children) live in seperate detached bedrooms. Once when I entered the front yard, I called Hank and said, "Get your ball!" Hank ran over to the porch and tapped on the second step and looked at me. It was under that step. Another time I had the oldest locked in his private yard and the youngest pup (80 lbs. at 1 year old), ran to his yard and opened the garden gate to let him out! These 'roomies' are friendly and very loud. They don't want to bite you, just smell you. As they mature they are capable of climbing a 50" cattle panel fence. Will add 24" of chicken wire to the front yard fence soon and if that works (which it did for my neighbor who has 7 of these 'roommates'), I'll do the whole 4 acres.
