In many ways, our pets are like our furry children who demand attention the same way a human child would. And, just like a human child, pets tend to misbehave if they're not given the attention they believe is their due.


Reddit user u/otiefish learned this the hard way when he left his cat alone too long in his dining room. Frustrated and bored, his feline decided to show him how it felt about being neglected by performing a minor acrobatics routine.

Fortuantely Otiefish caught the entire display on video and posted it to Reddit:

Reddit user AvogadrosArmy knew exactly what was going through the cat's mind:

"You gonna ignore me? Oh yah? looks around for a mess to make"

redditslim painted a bleak picture of cats:

"I swear they're little terrorists, sometimes. Little balls of hate, who just want to see the world burn. Sometimes."

toastyghost looked at things a little more positively:

"Adorable little fluffy balls of hate 😍"

rabidjellybean couldn't help but notice how many cats loved to dangle:

"Meanwhile mine just risks her safety by hanging off the upstairs railing. She knows I don't like it."

LollyHutzenklutz has been there:

"That would be my cat, Bindi! When I dare to "ignore" her, she just looks around for the most annoying thing she can do. Last night she managed to push an entire box of cookies off the counter and into the garbage... at least I can say she has good aim? πŸ˜’
"If I didn't love her so much, I swear; there are times when I feel like tossing her (back) on the streets! I'd never do that, of course, but the thought has crossed my mind. LOL"

snowlights has a cat with its own technique:

"My cat will find something plastic to furiously chew on. Then I have to chase her around to take the plastic away so she doesn't swallow it. She knows exactly what she's doing."

RoutineTwo has two cats that can't wait until later:

"My boys are a bit more direct when I ignore them. Like occasionally walking up to me and 'patting' me, with a claw, in the small of my back. It's sort of like their version of NOW."

N3R0Bisangwa has seen behavior like this before:

"Just like a little petulant child. Lmaooo"

Para11axis thinks cats are smart...maybe TOO smart:

"My cat has learned that scratching the carpet gets attention, so every morning at 5am she lightly scratches the carpet to wake me up and feed her. I know I should ignore her but I end up just groaning and flailing an arm in her direction, at which point she runs towards her food bowl."

applepieq has a cat which will cause chaos at the drop of a hat:

"Are you ignoring me? Fine. Watch me now cuz I'm gonna DESTROY YOUR HOUSE'
"My cute little cat likes to manipulate me by chewing something that's not food (my backpack, the remote control, etc) He prefers things that make noise like plastic bags or plastic flowers."

-AUniqueName- never expected cat ownership to involve so much Velcro:

"My cats enjoys knocking over my bedside table lamps. I had to Velcro them down.. the lamps, I don't Velcro the cats."

Daddyless_Princess could hear the cat singing as it climbed:

"IIIIIIII'M GONNA SWIIIIIIIING FROM THE CHANDELIIIIER"

All of you cat owners out there had better start giving your critters some attention or who knows what havoc they might wreak!

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
