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? 😒
"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!

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
