People Who Had To Choose Between Partners and Pets

It's a not-unheard-of occurrence in relationships: "either the dog goes or I go." People who set this kind of ultimatum often have a very uninformed view on how much people like their pets. If the cat has been around for 10 years and you've been around for 3 months, don't expect an outcome in your favor. That said, pets aren't always stoic beacons of morality. For example here's Prancer, the irredeemable dog and these pets who shamelessly wrecked stuff.

Intriguing Pet Drama People Have Witnessed

Contrary to the belief that pets just sit there and mope all day, many animals have rich inner lives filled with jealousy and rage. There's dogs out there herding lawn roombas and cats out there being eloquent, melodramatic divas. There's cats Lion Kinging other cats off balconies and jealous horses up to no good. Animals are just as petty and vicious as the rest of us.

Pet Store Employee Stops Karen From Torturing Starfish

Having a saltwater tank isn't as easy as throwing some salt and water together in a jug like it's Kool-Aid and calling it a day. Karen wasn't having all this "responsible pet owner" talk, so this employee stepped in to show her exactly what she'd need to take care of a starfish. Of course, Karen didn't take kindly to this employee who didn't want her to slowly torture a starfish to death. Will the Karen customersof the world ever learn their lesson? Doubtful.

Animals Who Shamelessly Wrecked Stuff

To what extent is a cat or dog capable of feeling guilt? The answer is case by case. In the case of some pets like Prancer, the most irredeemable dog, you're likely to get as much remorse as you would a rock. Some dogs probably think they're doing you a favor by eating the door so you can be together. Maybe dogs who get stuck in things are a little more emotionally invested in you if they need your help, but they're also pretty good at making it seem like they don't really care.

Cats Who Were Caught In the Act

On general principle, cats have no respect for you or your things and they'll knock your full mug of coffee off the counter just to see what will happen. It makes sense that there'd be a lot of evidence of cats and their crimes. Hey, they want food even when they have it. This point is driven home by the fact that cats probably talk like disparaged Victorian children.

Honestly, we're just glad that the doggo homie is alright. This hilarious story centers on a dog who loyally, foolishly decided to mimic their owner who had injured his leg. Suffice to say, some massive and completely unnecessary vet fees ended up being the result.

Absurd Pet Names People Encountered

Why not name a dog "Big Boy Binglebangle" or "Lunchbox?" Why not name a cat "Federico Feline-y?" Well, at some point you're gonna have to bring them to the vet, look another human being in the eyes and say "I'm worried that Sergeant Jebediah Funkness III has a heart condition" and  all of a sudden things have gotten weird. That said, a dumb name doesn't mean a dumb pet. Here are some worryingly smart stunts pulled by people's pets.

Negligent Neighbor Demands Dog Child Support

If you're not gonna keep a sharp eye on your pets, at least make sure they're not prepared to go around making any more. This neighbor didn't take any preventative measures with her own dog and now she's saying she's entitled to compensation. Both of these neighbors could have benefitted from hearing about this neighbor who built a fence to keep the neighbors out of her pool.

Pet Store Employee Shares Friendly Holiday Reminder

So many of us are prone to impulse buys during the holiday season. It's a time where we can fork over some of that hard-earned dough, and buy special gifts for the human beings we're grateful to share this strange existence with. With that being said, we've got to be careful to not cave for the irrational pet purchases. You've really got to think things through before bringing a new family member on board. Especially if it's a bird that's about to stir up a loud ruckus in your home. 

Friendly reminder for people that want to buy pets during the holidays | holidays are coming up, and as someone who works pet store there are some things want everyone who plans on getting animals as gifts remember: fish tanks need be set up and running at least one week before fish can be put all fish need treated water and bacteria supplements. fish can only survive plastic bag about an hour ONLY fish can go bowl is BETTA. all other fish, especially goldfish, will die/be very unhealthy bowls.

Tumblr Thread: People's Brains Turn Off Around Pets

Seeing an adorable puppy or kitten is much like seeing an adorable baby; you're pretty much rendered senseless and devolve into some kind of nonsensical, muttering mess who is helplessly overwhelmed by adoration. It isn't necessarily a bad thing, and it's a condition that seems to affect us all at one point or another.

Without Bob Barker to tell us to spay and neuter our pets, it's good to get a reminder from Mankind, who some of you may have heard once plummeted 16 feet through an announcer's table at 1998 Hell In a Cell.
