Of course I do! In German, yet, since that's how it was always said in our house growing up (my mom's grandmother was from Germany). And I say "excuse me" and "thank you" to the kitties, too!

I figure if our hearts "stop" when we sneeze, then theirs must too.

I think I've blessed the cats enough these past two weeks to exorcise this house if it were haunted

I do too. I once blessed a friend's dog when it sneezed and got some wierd looks from my friend. Then we cracked up. The dog didn't seem to notice.

I thought that this was a question about taking cats to church to be blessed on or about St. Francis' Day!

I don't; being stuffed into his carrier and taken to church with all the other animals (other cats, dogs, birds, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, snakes, lizards, and God and St. Francis knows what else!) would be too traumatic. Instead I buy a packet of cat treats and take it to be blessed instead.

I don't, I ask them if they're ok or tell them to get their noses out of whatever was causing them to sneeze.

No...no...no It's about saying "Bless You" when you're cat sneezes!!

Absolutely I do! "Ooo, bless you, baby!"
post #19 of 27
I do, too. I think I wish my good manners will rub off on them. -_-
post #20 of 27
Yep, I do it too! Glad to know I'm not alone!

I guess we're all dorks together - my cats have learned that "Excuse me" means to stay still while I step over them, and I bless'em when they sneeze, and - oh well, etc. etc., pretty much a running monologue with them, punctuated by meows....

I caught myself saying "bless you" once to my cat when he sneezed and I laughed to myself about it but I still say it. I talk to my cats like they're people so why not?

BTW, our hearts don't stop when we sneeze. That would be pretty scary lol.

"Gesundheit". Yes. Though I'm not sure that's a blessing, more of a well wish than anything...
post #24 of 27
I'm another guilty one

I do it all the time, DH says "Did you say something?" My response, I was just talking to the kitties!!

Me too - they've got to learn manners from somewhere, after all!

That's what I usually do.

It isn't, but that's what is said in place of "bless you". I always say it at work, but don't usually get a response because most don't know what it means.
