Pets are a part of our family. They are just as quirky as humans. Sometimes, even quirkier.

We know our pets like we know our brothers and sisters. They are pieces of us. And we adore each and every bit of that.

And though they may have no idea of whether or not we notice their little quirks, we love pointing them out.



u/fluxifye asked:

What is a little fact about your pet?

Here are some of those answers.

Meowt Of Line

My cat is angry today because we got a new oven. She hates when we get new furniture or move things around and will loudly meow at the offending item.

I moved some stuff around on my porch, and my cat refused to go on it after that. The changes were not to her liking apparently

And He Was Mine Forever

He just showed up one day meowing at the door.

He wouldn't go away. Just meowing over and over like Meatloaf in Fight Club.

After a week or so I put a collar on him, assuming if he had a home to go to the owner would remove it.

Knocked on doors up and down the street to see if anyone had lost him.

Nobody had lost him so I gave up, opened the door and let him in.

Only For The Kids

Dyna (St. Bernard) will let my kids use her as (a pillow, a fort, a tractor, a sled pull, garbage disposal) if my 4 yr old calls the dog is up for whatever. If i try to get her to do anything it is too much effort and she just can't be bothered. "

Dyna please move, i cannot open this door" dog sigh, stretch in front of the door "Giant horse monster dog please move" sad dog eyes no movement on and on it goes she is 180lbs i cannot make her do anything she is not willing to do. But she adores my kids and i think thats all we really need in a family dog.

Love To Stand

We gave the gerbils a plate of sand to have a sand bath in, and instead all they do with it is stand in it. Not that they don't appreciate it - they often come to the top level of their cage to just go and stand in the sand, and then they go back down again. We don't really understand what the appeal is, but it's very sweet nonetheless.

Wrapped Around Your Finger

My Maine Coon can do various actions on command (if suitably rewarded - no treats = no tricks) including sit, lie down, high five, kisses. He knows the command "show me", and will walk you to the thing that he's upset about (empty food bowl, light on when it shouldn't be). He knows about 50 phrases and will react to them in a manner that lets me know he understands.

Nevertheless he has me far more well-trained than I have him, and he knows it.

We Love Affectionate Noodles

Our cat was "feral." He was rescued from an apartment complex with the intent to just neuter, so he has the tip of his ear cut, but someone decided to foster him and put him up for adoption. He's now a one year old fluffy black cat that has never hissed or tried to claw at us (even when we had to give him a bath) and falls over/goes limp noodle when you try to pick him up.

I Skype Too

I've read that cats like to "mirror" what we're doing, if they're really attached to us. Like it makes them feel included or something. My girl, Cleo, likes to try to climb all over and rub her face on mine and my friend's laptops. And stick her face in the camera when he's doing Skype meetings for work or interviews. It can be mildly annoying, but at the same time, it's so damn charming because she just wants to be involved, too.

I Am Friend To The Meeses

My doggo likes rodents cause I used to have pet mice and guinea pigs so when field mice infested my house she wasn't any help cause all she would do is try to be their friend.

She also rests her head on pillows like a human.

She's a very good girl.

Team Fly-Swatting

Cat 1: he hates being home alone and cries when he thinks I'm gone, yet won't come in the room and snuggle when I say it's ok I'm over here. Just looks at me like "oh ok" and walks away.

Cat 2: he's a little hunter boi and loves flies, ants, lizards, you name it. He's got this little chatter "battle cry" that signals he spotted something. He also like me to pick him up and hold him in the air to swat at the flies since he can't reach.

Dog 1: he's the fastest dog at the dog park

Dog 2: she poops on my porch because she thinks it's "outside"

Raised In Captivity

He's a a 6-month-old puppy named Murray. Here's some little facts:

His favourite food is toast but he doesn't get it often.

His current favourite activity is stealing plastic bottles from the recycling.

He also enjoys stealing socks, pens, bobbles and the hair brush.

He absolutely loves attention and shows off his toys to anyone who passes the garden.

He also loves the wind and likes chasing leaves when out for a walk.

He hates water. He won't go out in the rain and is not a fan of baths.

He's been growing up during lockdown, so the first time we had a visitor round he peed himself in excitement.

Speaking off lockdown, he also enjoys stealing face masks. If he sees you wearing one he will be determined to get it off you.

People Break Down The One Activity They'll Never Try Again

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

And that is... "is just one enough?"

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

What if your partner wants more cookie dough with your strawberry?

Redditor Pineapple-Status wanted to hear everyone's thoughts on opening the bedroom to others. They asked:

"What would you do if your long term SO suddenly wants to have sex with other people?"

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.

I grew up poor, and I remember the little things that made me smile when we just happened to have enough that week.

The little things that a truly rich person would not think twice about.

Ah, the luxury of it.

What spells luxury for you?

Redditor ConAir161057 wanted to compare notes about the things in life that feel like items only money can buy. They asked:

"For people who grew up with little money, what always felt like a luxury?"
