Default Strangest conversations: pet owners or parents?

I've been pondering this for a while.

I have heard parents discuss poop in a lot of different ways. Especially Moms with small children seem to have strong stomachs.

Someone on my thread about my cat's wound mentioned that I don't seem grossed out about it. It takes a lot to gross me out. I don't have the luxury of having a weak stomach.

On this forum alone I have read about cat births, cat injuries/wounds and even cat enemas.

In real life a friend told (in a very offhanded manner) that her small male dog's testicles had not dropped. My grandmother told me about a friend of her's whose dog had a breach birth and a breeder they called came to the house and turned the puppy around so it would come out. We ourselves have discussed getting our dog's anal glands cleaned out on a regular basis.

It just amazes me the kinds of conversations people have. It's not necessarily a bad thing. But it's funny sometimes to hear an adult person say these things in a casual, usually public, conversation.

Who has the grosses/strangest conversations: pet owners or parents?

Any stories of your own to share.

Pet owners, I think. Parents have to watch what they say in front of kids.

Poop and vomit is a way of life when you have cats. Kids, too I suppose, though I don't have any of my own. I work with special needs kids though and have been bled on, peed on, pooped on, vomited on, and caught it (vomit) with my hands, all have happened both with kids and with cats. I have a strong stomach for that kind of stuff but if I had to choose, I'd say the cats' bodily fluids and solids are slightly easier to deal with than the humans'.
