    No issues with that. If they are allowed to sleep on the bed (which they are) they should not expect me to be in bed in full clothing.

    Re: Naked in front of pets

    When I had a dog I do remember feeling funny being naked in front of her. I know it is silly because they don't care one way or the other but had a bit of an issue with it. Don't think I would with a cat. They don't seem to notice you anyway.

    No inhibitions in front our dearest cat who is gone now; but she did look at me funny, head turned slightly.

    Re: Naked in front of pets

    I voted "A little self-conscious" because not all pets are created equal. We've had dogs that were hard core pillow humpers and I simply never want to entice my pet to use me as a toy when I'm asleep.

    My daughters cat was another clear example of an animal I'd never have been naked around. This cat had such an identity crisis that he actually believed he was a dog and as such, could not be alone for a minute. He'd try to get so close to you at night you'd swear he was trying to wiggle in under your skin.

    We have had a couple of guard kitties... Doggies beware, they annihilate you.

    I have to admit, not all pets are equally suitable around kids though.

    Yeah, yesterday when I was stripping in the bathroom to get ready to take a shower, my Himalayan cat was sitting there in the doorway gawking at me, with her head possibly tilted slightly to her right. I wanted to say, "take a picture, it'll last longer."

    So that was my inspiration for the thread.

    I guess I didn't mind her checking out my backside too much. I'm more self-concious of full-frontal.

    Re: Naked in front of pets

    I have an issue with it. Why? I don't know. If one of the cats are in the room while i'm changing i do the half change thing where you leave your shirt on while you take you arms out of the sleeves and get another shirt and put your arms through those sleeves and then do the "quick swap" pulling the old shirt off quickly and putting the new one on. The cats are not allowed in the bathroom with me.

    I wondered how it moved up when no one left a post.

    Lookit, my body is a scarey site. If my pets saw me naked, they might run away from home.

    I don't think it matters to pets much because I believe they look toward us for substanance, not for mating.

    ...or so I hope.

    Re: Naked in front of pets

    Im pretty open with most thinks and nudity around pets is no issue. In fact, i rarely wear pants at home and generally loaf around in a T Shirt and undies.

    My wife and 3 "almost" adult children have no issues with this and should they come home with company unexpected, they generally dash in and warn me so that I have time to put trousers on, out of courtesy.

    Ive even been known to dash out to the mailbox in my undies, but i must say my wife frowns on that. I have however never had, nor would wish, to attend a nude facility, sunbake or bathe nude in company etc.

    Cheers

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
