I give great pet

I was at a friend’s apt yesterday.  She has a husband,  <2 year old daughter,  two cats. We ordered in food, I brought some cookies from a Brookyn bakery.

Good times.

One of her cats,  I think Pete, was so friendly. I think he's 9 years old, seemed mellow,  loved to be pet. I'm talking he looked at me after I pet him as if saying "you mean you're not going to do that until I fall asleep?"

Actually,  if I actually stopped for a minute,  he would rub the length of his cat body on my hand "dammit, if you're going to be a lazy ass, I'll do it myself."

But once he started purring, he started drooling.

Wait… what?

"Yeah, Rex. He does that.  He'll slobber all over you."

This sounds familiar, although I read the reasons for this don’t sound too pleasant. The petting gets so good that normal body functions are affected.

Damn, I give great pet.

Now, I love animals so i soldiered on petting him as we ate cookies and drank coffee but after a while,  it was all over my pants and my hands. So… every five seconds of so,  I wiped his face with a napkin. He wasn’t quite fond of that but it worked well for me.

UNTIL I finished my coffee and then accidentally WIPED MY FACE WITH THE CAT SLOBBER!


Lucy Van Pelt, I feel you.


  1. My cat does that too if you pat him good.

    It’s gross. Last thing I need is to be covered in cat slobber in bed because he can’t swallow his spit due to being overjoyed so much at the pats. It’s just… no.
