How do you spoil your pets?

I am in the office on the computer, but I just lit a fire in the family room fireplace so the cats can lie in front of it.

Sakima was drinking tea with me this morning. Out of my mug.

I got Sakima for Jade so she won't be so lonely after her best friend passed away.

Both of my cats and all three of my dogs get massages every once in a while.

Genki (my kitty in my avatar who passed away recently) got to eat dinner with me at the dinner table during his last couple of months. He got to eat anything he wanted off of my plate.

My daughter has to leave her bedroom door open at night so the cats can come in and sleep on her bed. If she forgets to do it the Siamese stands outside her door and cries.

I spoil my dogs by allowing them to live even when they do really stupid and annoying things.

I abuse and chop my dogs up everyday.
I guess my gentle chops feel like a massage to them. When I yell out, "I'm gonna chop up a dog!" both Daisy and Mojo come running up to my feet, Daisy barking viciously and Mojo growling so I can chop them. Unless they're tired and then they just ignore me. Strange dogs.

I am assuming that Sadie's toys have a concert each night - or is it Mrs. nivekdodge's toys? And she has names for them?

They get filtered water to drink.
We feed them organic food.
They have an automated, self-cleaning litterbox.
They can sit & sleep wherever they like.
We let Arianna sniff our mouths before we go to bed. She sticks her whole face in our open mouths.

The cats allow me to go on living. Although that's not exactly spoiling them

Cocoa and Pebbles get to sleep on the bed (not my idea), and every morning, they come and say hello to me with the expectation of getting chicken strips - which they gladly dance for - and then they usually go back to sleep. Lucky dogs sleep about 18 hours a day.

I tuck my dogs in with a blanket. When they wake up in the middle of the night and get cold (they can't get back under the covers), they come and wake me up, and I'll get up and tuck them back in.

Oh, and the primary reason for buying my BMW was as a whippet-mobile. Although the husband has largely taken it over. (And BTW, he spoils them even more than I do.)
