Website Addresses Little-Discussed Fact: Pets Fart

LAS VEGAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The creator of a website dedicated to gassy animals says the inspiration for the site was literally right underneath her nose.

Sandy McCarthy of Las Vegas says her website,, which features cartoons of animals passing gas and a fart sound clip, was inspired by what she says is “a daily thing that we have to put up with.”

She says her Pit Bulls “can clear a room” with their farts, and these are not SBDs – silent but deadly farts – we’re talking about.

McCarthy explains, “Sometimes they really are as loud as a person’s can be.”

She says her cat is also guilty of cutting the cheese “pretty bad” and while she hasn’t heard her birds break wind, she says, “I’m sure they do.”

McCarthy says the site was simply made to inspire a few chuckles, and so far she’s gotten only positive feedback, like an e-mail saying, “Thanks for keeping it light and keeping it real.”

But not everything on the site is real. She admits the fart sound byte you hear on the opening page is really “my husband’s talented armpit.”
