Alluraypetdumb

Created by: abrakadeborah

Pronunciation: Al-lure-ay-pet-dumb

Sentence: Pepper would meow and scratch on the door with excitement as if she couldn't wait to see Kay come in the door! So,Kay would rush as fast as she could to open the door coming in from work.(Kay would often think awwww Pepper missed me!) Kay reached down to pet Pepper...saying," awwww, you missed me lil Pepper!" Then...Pepper would let out a hiss and swat Kay's hand away and dart off as fast as she could running and skidding sideways across the wooden floors to go hide for hours!(Pepper was no where to be found) Kay sat down for a while then unpacked from her travels,then finally went to take a relaxing warm bubble bath. Pepper slowly came creeping up to Kay like nothing had happened. Pepper lovingly purred as she looked up so sweetly at Kay with her soft blue eyes...Kay reached out to pet her then Pepper raced off again to the kitchen to go sit at her food bowl meowing loudly! Kay toweled off and went to the kitchen to see the adorable "alluraypetdumb" expression of Pepper glaring up at her until Kay fed her! Kay went through this same treatment every time she came in from work and Pepper kept up with her "alluraypetdumb" attitude every single week! "Oh, but Pepper was so cute!" (Kay thought,as she was rolling her eyes and mumbling dumb cat,gosh I love her!)

Adorablob

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: ədôrəbläb

Sentence: Wes thinks he owns a cat. He is wrong. That thing that eats cat food, purrs when scratched is not a cat at all. Cats are barely domesticated creatures that hunt mice and other small critters. Cats are agile and light of foot. Wes’ pet is none of these. What he has is an adorablob, a cute, treat eating, litter soiling lump of fur with the about as much ambition of a sofa cushion. Last week Wes had to trap and remove a mouse that was starting to establish a nest on Fatty McButterpants’ belly.

Etymology: adorable (inspiring great affection; delightful; charming) + blob (an indeterminate mass or shape)

karenanne "Fatty McButterpants"! That's great! ...Although it reminds me of NJ Governor Christie, who is not so cuddly.... - karenanne, 2010-11-05: 13:15:00

Charmideous

Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: charm id E us

Sentence: He rescued the mixed-breed bassett from the phound. The poor mutt had long, matted, hair, desperately in need of shampooing and clipping, along with a frighteningly ugly, part boxer, part schnauzer, part pugly, face ... earning him the name of Scrunge Bob Scare Pants ... so charmideous he was a blessing in disguise!

Etymology: HIDEOUSLY, CHARMING = CHARMIDEOUS. // A pound for hounds is a phound. // Pug ugly is pugly.

Love it! Scrunge Bob Scare Pants -ha, what a tail. If I had a Bassett, I'd call it Angela! - Nosila, 2009-04-23: 19:24:00

Inpetyougush

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: in pet u gush

Sentence: Simone realized she was a pet owner who was impetyougush. She had found Marshmallow, her white Persian cat when a kitten and raised her to sleek adulthood. Marshmallow slept 16-20 hours a day on the top of the couch. Simone fed her, cleaned out her stink box and just when she felt unappreciated, Marshmallow would roll over on her back and look adorable. When Simone came home from a hard day, Marshmallow would reach our her paw and touch Simone, so that she had no choice but to pat her. Then the purring would commence and Simone would unwind and relax. She soon realized that people measured cats' intelligence by their own standards. If you were an impartial observer, you'd wonder who was smarter: a cat who did whatever it wanted all day long with no accountability or pressures or the stupid human who raced home from a hard day at work to strain poop out of kitty litter, fill up the food bowl and put clean water in a dish and then hope the animal you did all that for would grace you with a purr or tummy rub offer or rub against your legs. Yep, cats aren't the stupid ones, are they??

Etymology: Impetuous (characterized by undue haste and lack of thought or deliberation) & Pet (preferred above all others and treated with partiality; a domesticated animal kept for companionship or amusement) & You Gush (you give an unrestrained expression of emotion)

Prefurred

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: pree-fuhrrd

Sentence: "Who is my Little Man?" the master always asked and then answered, "I am...I'm your Little Man." The L.M. knew it wasn't the dog who had to live outside. He, the Little Man, knew he was prefurred. Who else had people talking for him? Who else got to sleep on every couch and bed in a stream of sunshine throughout every day? Who else got to lick clean every bowl of yoghurt or ice cream? Who else got his ears and neck rubbed until his eyes rolled back in his head? Who else got to manipulate (manipawlate?) to shreds with impunity (impawnity?) every soft coverlet and carpet in the house? No one else--no one, but The Little Man...that's who!

Etymology: Using PREFERRED, meaning to be favored + FUR, meaning an animal skin, hair

Adorabubble

artr

Created by: artr

Pronunciation: ədôrəbəbəl

Sentence: Katie's cats, Fatty McButterpants and Furbucket are adorabubble. Fatty's greatest talent is to roll over on his fatback and purr when his ample belly is scratched. Fur will sing for her supper and she sings often. If breathing were a conscience effort, they would both be long gone.

Etymology: adorable (inspiring great affection; delightful; charming) + bubble (an air- or gas-filled spherical cavity in a liquid or a solidified liquid such as glass or amber)
