Questions but no answers

Going past the pet shop, with its half windows comprising of cute animal photos one realised a couple of things. All the photos have been taken with the animals looking up to the camera, thereby creating an image of a mute, hopeful plea that makes them so appealing. And secondly, this is the important one for this; one really doesn’t understand pet play. Even after spinning the idea around for awhile.


Now, one does understand relating to an animal.  As a person born in the Year of the Dragon how could one not? The inescapable truth, that it is an apt description of ones... shall we say... charming characteristics, is undeniable. Piss one small slave off and you will hear scales rattle. Push it and you will get the full flight of the dragon shrew. Sighs there goes the good slave award... again.


Anyway back to kitties and puppies and pet play. Which one doesn’t understand at all. See while one can understand that it might be very freeing to play these things, one remains unsure what the owner gets out of it. The last time one checked the cat can’t cook or clean and it is surly company at best. Well it remains resolute in its determination to not confess to these skills. Mind you it likes to pretend it doesn’t recognise its own name when it suits. Hmmm.... maybe it is more cunning than one suspects...

Well, I had my eye on the good submissive award, ahem, but I think I may have broken it and set the house on fire in my attempts to grab it. So you're not the only one who will be going without awards this week lol.

LOL Misery just loves company... though the idea of you setting the place on fire does have entertainment value :D

"the full flight of the dragon shrew" *snickers*

Meeoow.

I'm kind of getting "dogs" Kind of. I'm guessing that the "cats" are for people who like felines more than canines in general. As in, it's still about having your s-type dress up like a house pet and make it do all these "humiliating" things.

We have this new member in our group now, though, who is "a rabbit" and she refers to herself as "his rabbit" in every post she makes. Because of that, I can't even be bothered to concentrate on what she tries to relay--I'm too bloody fixated on that "rabbit" because I just cannot, for the life in me, understand what the hell IS "a rabbit", when applied to a person in an O/p relationship.

I can't very well ask her, though--that'd be tactless for no good reason. And I'm only tactless for good reasons, of course. >;)

I own a rabbit. They're bloody useless creatures. I can't imagine the appeal of rabbit pet play unless one has a fetish for cleaning up poop and preventing the chewing of cables.

Dina said...

@Biddable: Exactly. I just don't get it at all. Cats and dogs kind of, you know, do ... stuff. A rabbit, on its own, just sits there, chews, drinks and soils.

Well I have been eyeing off a Playboy bunny costume for piece and getting her to perfect her bunny dip while serving me martini's does that count as rabbit pet play?:)

@L&L: No, comrade, that's just another illustration of your overall perviness. ;)

You guys are missing the point... rabbits are very, very quiet... well until the end ;)

Dina said...

Hrm. The end of what? No, seriously. I'm now even more confused with the rabbit thing.

Biddable said...

Rabbits do make a most god-awful squeal when they're panicked. I've only ever heard it twice and both times it was my first rabbit. Once when he got tangled in the harness I foolishly thought he would like to wear for walks and once when we were putting him down.

Some owners find it amusing to see their slave scurry about on all fours on a collar and or lead, throw it sticks to fetch and make it drink out of a dog bowl and all of this in front of other people.I do bite, but then I am not allowed to.

Master's piece said...

Oh, hadn't thought of the amusement angle... it would be like quoits ;)

Dina said...

I get the amusing part. I just don't get the rabbit specifically part. And my first thought at "till the very end" is of rabbit stew, rather than anything else.

Master's piece said...

Stew was rather what one had in mind... we are a practical people after all. It's why we have difficulty understanding pet play :D

Dina said...

Ah, so we were actually talking cannibalism. It all makes sense now. ~sage nod~

my Mistress and my Ma'am both call me their puppy, hence the name of my blog, but we don't have many aspects of our play that is traditionally what one would imagine for puppy play. There is not a lot of crawling on all fours, there are no leather dog muzzle hoods, no potty training. i do have a collar with a name tag, but many subs who aren't puppies have those.

I became a puppy to Them because I have very puppy-like personality traits: i enjoy sitting at my Domme's feet (preferably on a soft puppy bed). i tend to do a wiggly movement when i get excited. i am loyal to a fault. i also own a dog business and speak dog better than i do human which lends to my puppy tendencies.

I can only imagine this sort of dynamic with puppies and kittens, but you're right, it is very much about the affection part (at least for me). But I also cook, clean, fold and put away laundry, organize, and run errands. My "puppy" is only part of my sub identity.

thanks for the thought provoking post, this may lead to one about my pup identity in my own.

Ah now some of that made sense... quite a lot of it in fact. The trouble with the stuff you don't understand, is that you can't just stomp into the groups and ask... well not without offending someone. Thank you for sharing mina :D
