...when your pet sneezes?

This is the poll at www.petoftheday . Sounded like a good one for TCS.

Yes, I do. Sometimes I offer to wipe their nose and tell them to blow!

My cats usually make such a big production of sneezing, it seems like I ought to respond in some fashion! They don't sneeze very often, so it's like they save it all up for one giant sneeze that you can hear throughout the entire apartment ... The only people I know who sneeze louder are my boyfriend and his father! (And when they sneeze, I duck for cover!)

I usually say "Oh, goodness!" and ask her "Sneezing? Are you sneezing?" same thing with babies. I say bless you to other people.

The area I live in (Evansville) has a large number of folks of German descent so you can hear it here often. I can't vouch for other areas.

Yes, I say gesundheit to both if they sneeze. And then I say - poor baby, got the snoofies??

Yes, I do, "God bless you, baby, my goodness, listen to my baby girl's sweet little sneezes!"
It's funny that I've never really thought about it, though.
