I have had a bad afternoon and bored the ears off my two Labradors and hubby's JRT. They have had to listen to everything that has gone wrong over the past two days, the stuff unwise to share openly.
They are always good listeners and always give me their full attention even if that includes the odd wet kiss....

Drat, innermost secrets to your pets.....

I am glad you added that! (Otherwise they wouldn't be secrets)
Dogs are great listeners with the added bonus that they don't tell you their problems back.

Better than bottling it all up. I expect they enjoyed the attention as well!

I am so glad too. Was wondering.

Cats look a bit questioning at you [when you moan] and then go back to sleep. Dogs come as close as they can to you and sometimes whine a little bit at your upset, they don't like pack members to be unhappy. Hamsters just glare at you. I know, because have moaned at all these pets in the past.

I wouldn't burden my dogs with my problems as they are sensitive little souls.

My dog looks at me as if she would really love to help if only she could understand......the cat looks at me and yawns.......I obviously bore him

My pony was always very understanding and quite often took my mind off the problem by, shall we say, becoming a little too excited ! Perhaps he didn't like being a captive listener whereas the cat would just walk away.
