You've Got To Be Kidding Me
I just read the latest "Etsy Finds", which is a periodic email containing items of note discovered by the Etsy admin team. But this one had me scratching my head.
Since last July this woman has been selling these flower stickers as "Butt Covers for Your Cat and Dog". And she appears to be selling a lot of them. Seriously? Um, if you can't handle the sight of your pet's back end, I'm thinking maybe pet ownership is not something for you. This reminds me of the episode of the Dog Whisperer where a young chihuahua owner was constantly dressing his dog Paris (yes, named after Paris Hilton) in cute little outfits.
But this is too much. "Rear Gear comes in many designs including a disco ball, air freshener, heart, flower, biohazard, smiley face, number one ribbon, cupcake, sheriff's badge, dice". SERIOUSLY?? What kind of self-respecting dog or cat would want to walk around with a smiley face on their ass? Or a freaking #1 ribbon?
If their hiney is seriously too gross to look at, perhaps you should examine their diet, or take them to the groomer.
Sometimes I wonder about Etsy.
Now this, on the other hand, is a find.
