Our pets can have funny quirks or rituals. Behaviors that we explain to ourselves with difficulty, if at all, but which in the eyes of our dogs and cats, have all their meaning and all their importance.
This is precisely what these 10 stories illustrate…
1. The reading dog
A canine owner reports that his dog gets closer to him every time he sees him with a book in his hand. He then begins to kick him until he reads aloud to him.
2. Arsène Félin, gentlecat burglar
Another Internet user remembers the cat from his childhood who had the annoying habit of stealing all kinds of things from neighbors. He came home with bathing suits and various other objects. He even grabbed a child’s backpack.
3. The cat trainer dog
The dog of a family which also includes 3 cats is personally in charge of the education of the latter. On several occasions, he observed his owners admonishing the felines when they behaved badly. Now, as soon as he notices that one of them falls back into his ways, he immediately calls them to order by barking.
4. An improvised alarm system
A user of Reddit publishing under the pseudonym DM Lorance says her father’s dog performed a strange ritual every night. He chose, among his toys, those that squealed the loudest, and arranged them methodically in the places of passage: the access to the stairs, in front of the doors, etc. It was, in a way, his alarm system.
5. The dog who refused to drink from his bowl
Another dog owner confused by the behavior of his animal says that the quadruped categorically refused to drink his water from a bowl. So much so that he suffered from dehydration and had to be taken to the vet. His master then offered him to drink from a bowl for humans, and he quenched his thirst there without any problem. Since then, he only drinks from the latter.
6. The imaginary sick rabbit
No cat or dog this time, but a rabbit. The lagomorph in question here pretended to fall ill whenever its owners were about to leave, for a weekend for example. As soon as they started getting ready to leave, the rabbit would stop feeding, become inactive, and refuse even its favorite treats. Eventually they figured out he wasn’t really sick. One day, to have confirmation, they pretended to prepare a new beginning and hid in the next room. They then heard a noise coming from his cage and secretly spied on him, realizing that he was playing and feeding as normally as possible.
7. The cat who prefers the toilet to its litter box
The protagonist of this story is a cat. He learned how to use his litter box well, but he secretly started to relieve himself in the toilet bowl. His owner did not understand why he discovered droppings in his toilet until the day he saw his pet at work.
On Reddit“ shibsmarie recounts the habit that her dog used to come to her every evening around 10 p.m. to make her understand that she had to go to bed. She began to growl little grunts until her young mistress joined her bed.
9. Snoopy and lettuce
The owner of Snoopy explains that he had this dog when he was still only a 10 year old child. The animal loved lettuce and every time his human prepared a snack, Snoopy was there waiting for his lettuce leaf. Even after the death of the canine, his master was surprised to leave a little aside for his 4-legged friend, before remembering that he was no longer there.
10. Mildred, the cat who kisses her owner
When the owner of Mildred comes home and calls this adorable cat, she runs to her and waits for her mistress to sit down. The feline then offers her cheek so that her human gives her a kiss, then she turns her head in turn so that Mildred presses his nose to her cheek, as if to kiss her back.
