Pets that Pee on Me

Updated on November 29, 2012

How many exotic animals have peed on you?

Why do I get the bad end of the stick? Somehow I find myself always getting animal excrement on me whenever I am playing with an exotic animal.

In this lens I will share some of these stories with you. And I'm not talking about puppies... everyone has been peed on by a puppy. But how many of you have been peed on by a possum?

Yes, this is a photo of the moment of a Possum peeing in my lap. Right when the camera take the picture.

Have you been peed on by a pet?

Max

The Australian Bushtail Possum

Possums in Australia are like squirrels in the USA, they are cute, have bushy tails and are everywhere.

During my orientation for a semester in Australia, we stayed at a farm in Blackbutt (I still can't say it without giggling). Max, the possum, had lost her tail in some unfortunate accident. Since he was less able to fend for himself, our host parents were caring for him.

So the 7 of us are enthralled by this tame possum. Of course we wanted to take turns feeding her! I was the last to go. When the host dad placed Max in my lap, I got ready for the photo... and I felt something warm spreading over my lap. That's right, Max peed on my lap... and we caught it on film! The picture in the introduction is from the moment of peeing, this one is from just after.

Sadly, Max's life probably ended by being eaten by a snake. Apparently Australian law won't let you have take any wild animal captive, so although they could give Max food and give her a place to sleep, they couldn't lock her in the cage at night.

Koala Bear

At a the Koala Santuary in Queensland

In the first month I was in Australia, we visited a Koala Sanctuary. We were so excited to go on this trip, because not only were we going to have the chance to see Koalas for the first time, but we were going to get to hold one!

Now this deification story is not as exciting as the story of Max the possum. There was no big outcry caught on film. It wasn't until after we were headed to the kangaroos and emus that I discovered that the dark brown stains on my bright blue hoodie were in fact, Koala Musk!

Later on the trip, down outside of Melbourne, I saw Koalas in the wild. This topped the sanctuary experience!

Shamrock Timmy

The Ball Python

Within a year of these other two incidents, I was back in Boston. My new boyfriend (now fiance) had a snake in his room at his fraternity house. I got along with Shamrock Timmy, and I thought he was the best accessory. I got in the habit of walking around parties with him draped around my neck like a scarf.

Apparently Timmy got really comfortable with me... because one evening we were standing around and I felt something wet and gooey go down the front of my shirt. I have no idea if this were #1 or #2, but I never touched Timmy again!

Come on, I'm not talking about a puppy or guinea pig here!

      This has to be one of the most unique lenses I've ever read, lol.

      PS: I wish I could double-like it. :-)

      I've been peed on by a few things, and poo'd on. Hamsters, Puppies, Cats, and Geckos.

      Cats - Dogs - Birds - Insects - a Snake - Frogs - Three Squirrels (not at the same time) - and a Turtle. It sets us off from a lot of other people... Thank God! (We don't want to be around those folks anyway).

      @mysticmama lm: Haha. I have a feeling that once I have children I'll have some additional stories to add to this lens ;)

      Animals love me, so I'm safe with them ~ It's babies that get me ~ I can be way across the room & somehow if there is a baby in the room it will get me, with spit up, pee, poop, whatever else...It's a terrible curse, because people always want to hand me their babies & when I back peddle, they get upset that I don't want to be anywhere near their little bundle of joy ~ That is until said bundles manages to projectile spit up sour formula all over me from 20 feet away, it's like I'm a walking target for icky baby fluids ~ I've even been squirted by rogue babies in supermarkets & movie theaters...So, I'll hold just about any animal ~ but please keep all babies at least 50 feet away lol :P

      When I was a kid, one of my favorite things to do was grab a handful of worms and scare my sisters with them. It wasn't until years later that I found out all the gooey stuff they left behind was actually poop.

      These stories are so cute. I've never been peed on by any animal.....unless you count the human "rug rat" version. :)

      @anonymous: Oh I think it's hilarious :) I deserved to have Timmy excrete on me... But Max... Max had been held by everyone!

      Now that I play with a lot of young puppies I get pee on me all time time and it's less of a big deal. But when you don't handle animals that often and your pee ratio gets high, you start to wonder ;)

      Nah......sorry, don't feel sorry for you at all. Animals usually excrete through fear, or because they feel comfortable enough to 'let go', and so the odds of you being peed on were pretty high....lol. I had an opossum pee on me once, but it was no big deal. One of the drawbacks of handling animals. Okay, so maybe I feel a little bit sorry for you. Great lens and you did a terrific job in such a short time. Wasn't that so much fun? I am going to start setting an alarm for myself from now on.

      Only a true animal lover could write a lense like this. And yes, Blackbutt makes me giggle too!

      @SisterCaren: At the time these were all gross.. but they happened 6-7 years ago, so now I just find them hilarious!

      Lol I do feel bad for you.

      I've actually never been peed on by a puppy or a kitten or any of those. I have however been peed on (or something...) by a ladybug once. Gross oh so gross.
