Worryingly Smart Stunts By People's Pets

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the worryingly smart things that people's pets have done. We've all had those strange moments with our pets where they pretty much proved they're aware of a whole lot more than we give them credit for. It's time for that cat or dog to start chipping in on rent.

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.

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.

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.

Dogs Who Fell Asleep In Creative Ways

It would be nice to be able to get so comfortable that you look uncomfortable. Seriously, some of these dogs just look like a pile. Dogs sometimes get stuck and need a hand, but these ones seem to be at least someone in control of their creative, and sometimes awkward positions.

Things People Accidentally Trained Their Pets to Do

Pavlovian conditioning can be a powerful thing. Just by sheer association, pets can learn very specific things, like how this smart dog learned the dinner criteria. Some pets take it a step further, like this dog who figured out how to herd a lawn roomba. Pets can learn a lot of very specific things. Usually it has to do with treats.

Animals that Basically Melted

There are very few beings that are capable of being as relaxed as these melty animals right here.

Pets that had Run-Ins with Bees

 Like people, cats and dogs can have responses to bee venom that can be mild to severe, but with the right attention and care they just swell up for a while and go back to normal. So for a while, you get an inflated dog or a cat with extreme lips. For some pet stories, here's a wholesome AirBnB with a neighborhood dog visitor as well as a Tumblr thread about a dog that figured out how to herd a lawn roomba.

Vegans Called Fake Because They Feed Their Cat Meat

This one seems pretty cut and dried. Their friends seem a bit extreme and have a hard time understanding what cats eat.
