So, last night my husband and I were, uh, you know, when all of a sudden I look up and there were our cats, all three of them, just sitting on various dressers staring at us. When I still lived at my parents house my dog did the same thing! I don't get it. What is it about sex that's so fascinating to pets?

Pets are usually fascinated by anything that moves and makes noises.Since sex does a lot of both it's sure to keep your pets watching

According to Peter Neville (UK animal shrink) it's to do with owners acting in an unusual manner and also interesting smells (since we normally mask our body odours).

Pretty Princess doesn't even wake up; although she'll grumble if she gets kicked.

When I was 19 and had just moved out of my parents house, I got a puppy. My boyfriend almost dumped me because "when the noise started" the dog would bark maniacally the whole time. If we put him out and shut the door, he kept barking. The thing that made my boyfriend so mad, though, was that I would usually start giggling until we just gave up. Poor guy. Funny thing, about six months after we broke up, my dog was killed by a car. Even though the ex and I stayed friends, he couldn't even fake feeling bad when I told him what happened. He sorta just snorted and said "Bummer. Wanna go out tonight?"

I think the dog was jealous that he wasn't getting any attention. I think cats are just curious. Cats think people are idiots anyway, sometimes we're just more entertaining than usual.

Just an observation...

Animal documentaries (PBS/Discovery Channel/National Geographic, etc) often include footage of mating animals.

Perhaps pets are just as entertained by these activities as humans who watch those shows.

Our cat climbs into the bed and curls up to watch attempts to join in sometimes, so perhaps my cat is more perverted than most. I think it's just that fact that something different is happening, and in the case of my cat, he just wanst to know whats happening in his bed( because of course as a cat he owns everything)

So far, my guinea pigs have never bothered me when I've had sex. So I guess the moral of the story is either that guinea pigs are more tactful than dogs and cats, or that you should keep your problems in a cage.

Well....we have two dogs, and four cats.

Oldest dog doesn't care, she just wants to be left alone to snore as she sleeps.

Younger dog, well, we kick him out because he decided we were "playing", so he MUST come lick our ears while we're, uh, in the middle, so to speak.

The cats ignore us. They just do not care. All that matters to them is not getting kicked.

After our young Golden Retriever started "sniffing around", the rule became "all pets out of the room". My cat is very jealous of DW so if she's hiding when the fun starts, she stays hidden then bolts for the door when we're done.

My cats just give us dirty looks because they are getting kicked off the bed. They kind of get an "oh, no not again" look. When we are.... finished they give the "are you done finally [Roll Eyes] " look, and come up for me to pet them.

Our cats don't usually bother us at all when we're enjoying some private time. We've had to very occasionally kick them off the bed, but never out of the room.

When I saw the thread title, I was thinking something different. Like the third video on this page:
http://www.amazingcatcollection.com/videos.php?page=2
or how our male cat likes to lick our female cat's ass. They're both fixed, fortunately.

Like Candy With Strangers, my ex could be rather loud at times. The worst incident I can remember is when our cat decided I was hurting his other owner during our mounting excitement and planted a claw in my thigh!

Rather put an end to that mood, and we also adopted the rule of no pets in the room [Big Grin]

Our first dog, Marti, would just sleep next to the bed while my SO and I were involved in sexual activities. If we became to loud he'd leave the room and go lay on the couch. The dog we have now, Maggie, thinks it is play time when we get going so she gets put in her crate. Nothing like an 85 pound golden retriever trying to jump on your back while your reaching climax.
p s I just relized the mental immage that must have brought to mind. Sorry about that.

Ever notice how we always fall in love? We never climb gently in to love, or step lightly in to love. If love is such a good thing than why is it described as a fall.

Once when I was on top my cat Mingus walked along my back, leaned over my shoulder and licked my helpless husband soundly on the nose.

Hahahahahahahahaha! No wonder we don't have sex anymore...

The cat on the back happened to me too. Unfortunately he felt that the ride was getting too rough and drove his claws in. GF at the Time misinterpretted my shout as a cry of passion and threw her arms around me knocking the cat off balance and he drove his claws in deeper.

My rule is NO PETS ALLOWED!!

YOMANK! I just imagined a pet surfing the net for human porn to show his friends.

My dog knows enough to jump off the bed when DH and I start getting extra cuddly but will hang out in the room and put her chin on the edge of the bed, (a move we call "face") while waiting for us to finish so she can hop back up. My dog *loves* furniture.
