Do you pet animals that you meet on the streets?

You know, the ones just wandering around alone... I usually do, I even go out of my way to pet them. What can I say? I love petting animals. I know it can be dangerous, but I don't give a fuck.

  • I always pet them if possible ^_^
    but I pay attention, if the dog seems aggressive then I won't do it of course, but if comes to me... sure why not :)

  • If the owner has given me permission to I will but if they have not I won't. If I randomly pet someones dog I could be mucking up what they are trying to train their dog. I do love animals and petting them though. There are actually health benefits from doing it to.

    • I'm talking about ones without owners

    • Then no! I would not! There pretty much no stray animals where I live. So I couldn't even if I wanted to.

  • nah don't really pet strays. I lieve in a rather small town so if I recognize someone's pet that has gotten loose i'll pet them and then take them to the owners... But I don't touch strange

  • Yes, sometimes I do. We don't have any stray animals in my country, so when you see a cat wandering around somewhere, you can be sure it belongs to someone and is just out for a walk. Most cats also have little collars with a metal chip on them on which it says where they live and in some cases how they are called.

  • I don't, but one of my cousing did it with a little can and named him "Fumaça" (Smoke). Well, the little animal really looks like smoke haha. He was going to die if my cousin didn't have taken him.

    • one of my cousins* did it with a little cat* (lol, I messed up the sentence xD)

  • *Gasp* (the language) I'm a petter. I like meeying them but I also look for ID tags. You never know when you found one who is lost and scared.

  • I was jogging in the evening once and I stopped to sit down and tie my shoe laces and this cat came out of nowhere and basically begged me to pet him. Weird.

  • cats: allways.
    dogs: never.

    pet a cat: worst case is, you get a scratch.
    pet a dog: worst case is, you lose a limb

  • Not myself, but I can understand people do that.
    And I would never harm any animal, wild or pet. But I would probably not have the time or motivation to take care of a pet :-(

  • Nope, too risky. I could get their fleas or some strange disease they might carry. Plus once you show affection to the street dogs here they keep on following you, which I get annoyed by because I'm not committed to keep/shelter a dog.

  • No, unless I ask if it's safe to pet them. I'll never pet any mean-looking dogs, like Doberman Pinchers, Bulldogs, Pitbulls, and German Shepherds.

  • Sure if they'll let me, I feel sorry for a lot of them though it's sad.

  • No, because I am worried they might not be receptive to strangers and might bite back. If they approach me and seem friendly I might.

  • I don't touch stray animals that wander around here. I don't see to many of them anyways as they're usually quickly picked up by Animal Services.

    If I see someone walking their dog, I'm usually also walking my dogs and they'll want to meet each other. I always ask the other person if it's okay, since I don't know their dogs.

    I hate it when people come right up to my dogs to pet them without asking me first.

  • No, I don't. I am tempted to, but it's inappropriate to touch other people's animals without permission and I don't like asking permission so I just elect not to touch them.

  • I do, but it's usually a cat. There was a cat who was basically a neighbourhood mascot. He would hang out on the front lawn of his home and greet people. He was a lovely cat but he passed away :( But I appreciated all the pets I was able to give him!

  • Not unless I get permission from their owner. People walk their dogs a lot where I live, and sometimes the dogs are happy to greet you. But I always ask if I may pet the dog, and if they say yes, I will kneel down to let them sniff me before petting them. If they are stray... I honestly don't know. I haven't encountered one. I would try to find it's owner or something to help the animal.
