Don’t like her big-pawed Newfoundland? Loath his fur-shedding tabby? Think she might ditch you for her dog?
You need a plan. Or at least a place to turn.
AnimalAttraction.com is a Web site for pet lovers, an online dating community and a venue chock-full of animal advice for its members. If you doubt us, log on. Members take their animals seriously.
Need a cure for a finicky cat who refuses to eat from a yellow bowl or a dog who prefers the cat over his kibbles? Information is there. If it isn’t, members can simply post a query.
Dan Cohen, who claims he co-founded the site with his dog Buddy, a shepherd-rottweiler mix, believes that pet lovers “share a lot of great traits.”
Though he doesn’t go so far as to say that a man will treat a woman the way he treats a pet, Cohen considers pet lovers as lovers of the highest calling.
He wants to invite you into his site, but only if you genuinely love your dog, cat, hamster, etc.
Through tomorrow, men and women who create a free profile on AnimalAttraction.com can win a ticket to what Cohen calls a private tailgate party with four Tennessee Titans cheerleaders and the cheerleaders’ dogs.
The first part of the party, Tailgate 2005, is open to the public, who can drop by and get the Titans cheerleaders’ autographs and meet their dogs.
Admission to the second part of the party will require a ticket, of which there will be 10, given to those randomly drawn from the list of new AnimalAttraction.com members.
AnimalAttraction.com will present Tailgate 2005 from 2 until 4 p.m. Dec. 4 at Jackson’s Bar & Bistro in Hillsboro Village.
For every sign-up on the site, AnimalAttraction.com will donate $1 to the Nashville Humane Association.
