Pet Hotel

Pet Hotel - 09/02/08 03:25 AM

Pets in Berlin have a new place to hang out just outside the city. They even have a special bus that picks them up and returns them to their owners at the end of the day. The Paws Hotel offers all the amenities of a first class people hotel. There's great food, spa treatments and exercise classes.<br><br>This video is in German but you'll get the idea.<br><br>

I assume that this "luxury" is judged on what humans think is luxury not what dogs would choose. Kinda like dog food.<br><br>dave<br><br><br><br>

I would assume most dogs would prefer to be out romping and playing rather than being cooped up in the house or yard all day but I get your drift. Dogs and cats can easily survive eating scraps in a junkyard.<br><br>Cats prefer to stay at home in familiar surroundings. I would never subject my cats to a boarding place unless I was desperate.<br><br>

I imagine the dogs really enjoy it, they are social creatures after all. Although Sam Bass did fine when we were both working straight jobs. You gotta have the doggie door, but he pretty much just slept all day. Probably depends on the breed ~ MsN's Aussie Shepherd is a berserker if left alone all day, so she does the back yard co-op thing with another friend, who's also crazy enough to have an Aussie Shepherd. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it.

[color:blue]Also kinda expensive!!</font color=blue> - Certainly and that kind of accommodations for a pet is for the ones that could afford it. Would I do this for a pet even if I had the money to do so <-- absolutely NOT<br><br>Pets should be left with friends that the pets are accustom to like friends or family , not dropped into a cold glass cage . Hence why I like cats - dumb arse dogs need a sitter or a hotel - [censored] cats leave enough food and water thats it. <br><br>

Depends on the cat/dog - I've known cats that will eat until they practically pop, whatever's there. That's why there's a cat obesity problem...<br><br>[color:purple]A lopsided man runs best along the little side-hills of success<br>- Frank Moore Colby</font color=purple>

My cat gets zero human food and only gets expensive old fart diet crunchies. He gets the prescribed amount in the bowl and that's it. No more. He's still fat.<br><br>

I have two ten-plus-year old cats who eat the same food (Purina One Senior Formula) from the same bowl. No table scraps (I give those to the crows) and the bowl never is empty because neither of them eats very much. One's fat while the other one is thin. They're both about the same age (give or take a year). My guess is that it's probably something genetic, so why worry about it?<br><br>

We have two cats who get identical foodstuff. One is a pig-out fatso, the other one is so slim that you'd swear she had intestinal worms (she doesn't).<br><br>[color:red]&#63743;</font color=red> [color:orange]&#63743;</font color=orange> [color:yellow]&#63743;</font color=yellow> [color:green]&#63743;</font color=green> [color:blue]&#63743;</font color=blue> [color:purple]&#63743;</font color=purple>

don't forget .... - 09/04/08 02:11 PM

<br>... Germans are world champions in vacationing, with 3-4 weeks twice a year being the norm. I have friends who will take Spookie (our miniature Schnauzer) for a few days, but 2-3 weeks, that's a different story.<br>Mind you, we have a place where they charge a whole lot less, and still, Spookie likes it there.<br><br><br>As far as dogs being stupid, by the way ..... I recently talked to someone who trains animals for movies etc. It may take 3 different cats to simulate one simple scene, like stretching, getting up from a blanket, walk to the fridge, and paw the door. No single cat is bright enough, to learn something that "complex". Now, cat owners will say that shows independence ..... yeah, sure it does. ;)<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

Re: don't forget .... - 09/04/08 02:38 PM

Dogs are pack animals and so their evolution privileges training/obedience/getting along with the alpha dog (the owner, natch). Cats are not pack animals. It has nothing to do with intelligence, IMHO.<br><br>[color:red]&#63743;</font color=red> [color:orange]&#63743;</font color=orange> [color:yellow]&#63743;</font color=yellow> [color:green]&#63743;</font color=green> [color:blue]&#63743;</font color=blue> [color:purple]&#63743;</font color=purple>

Time Warp: Once upon a time there was a little forum called MacLibs (yeah, yeah, I've heard all the jokes ) ~ The one time the place almost burned to the ground was over "Dogs are smart, cats are stupid, no you moron, cats are smart, dogs are stupid." <br><br>I'm talking mature adults melting down like dummies in the Wax Museum. And yes, I was one of those dummies. <br><br>Cats and dogs are a whole lot like people ~ some are smart, some are dumb. Cats and dogs are not a whole lot like people ~ regardless of their intellectual heft, or lack of it, we still love them and they always love us back. <br><br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:white]xx</font color=white>[color:blue]I always deserve it.

Yes, lions are pack animals. Leopards aren't. Tigers aren't jaguars aren't. Jaguarundis aren't. Domestic cats aren't.<br><br>[color:red]&#63743;</font color=red> [color:orange]&#63743;</font color=orange> [color:yellow]&#63743;</font color=yellow> [color:green]&#63743;</font color=green> [color:blue]&#63743;</font color=blue> [color:purple]&#63743;</font color=purple>

Re: lions are really dogs... - 09/05/08 01:23 PM

She's right, eck. Lions are the most trainable of the felines, and it's for the same reason that dogs are trainable . . . they're pack critters.<br><br>[color:red]&#63743;</font color=red> [color:orange]&#63743;</font color=orange> [color:yellow]&#63743;</font color=yellow> [color:green]&#63743;</font color=green> [color:blue]&#63743;</font color=blue> [color:purple]&#63743;</font color=purple>

Yeah, Al, that's true. With a dog, you need to assert your dominance, or else they will. With a cat, you can be more laid back and come to a mutually agreeable situation. ;-)<br><br>
