Pet Owners Describe The Funniest Drama That's Unfolded Between Their Animals

Pets enrich our lives in countless ways. One of the best is the way they seem to always be able to make us laugh, and this power multiplies exponentially when you have more than one pet.

The drama really ramps up when your pets are different species; different body language and communication styles between animals, as well as very differnt personalities, leads to some pretty hilarious drama.

Redditor ServiceCall1986 asked:

"People with multiple pets, what is some drama going on between them right now?"

Bully Ducks

"My ducks are so dramatic about sharing their pools. I have three ducks and two pools, one green, one pink. All three have decided the pink pool is their favorite and fight over who gets to be in it. They all three can fit comfortably in one pool, but they chase each other out and 'fight' about who gets to be the only one in there. It’s hilarious to watch. This spring, I’m buying new pools. Three all-pink ones lol."

"They also bully the wild birds and squirrels. And when they hear the neighborhood dogs start barking, they run to the back fence and start quacking really loud."

"Reminds me of when I got a cat bed for free because someone else's cat wouldn't touch it. Both my cats fought over it, so I bought an identical one. They fought over the new one for about a week, and then neither cat touched either bed ever again."

Chickens Are Scary

"i have a cat & chickens. one of my chickens chased my cat yesterday and now she’s hiding in my room"

- Exotic_Storm6788

"Guess you actually only have chickens."

- DazeLost

"Lol chickens scare me too!! Funny, my tuxedo cat is named Chicken Butt."

- Leading_Funny5802

"The cat desperately wants to play with the dog. The dog, who played with our last cat like best friends, absolutely refuses to have anything to do with her. It makes me sad, I feel bad for both of them."

- askingxalice

"He's afraid to love again 💔"


"Oh is that what we're doing today, feeling? I didn't sign up for this."

- UoFSlim

"Awh, I feel bad for the both of them. That sucks"

Sometimes Jealousy Is Helpful

"We have a new foster dog who is terrified of the world and everything in it. She's been cowering in the corner of the kitchen for days, but she's just now getting brave enough to start coming out to solicit attention. Our resident dog is jealous so she keeps coming over to try to steal the attention. The foster dog loves the resident dog, and seems to get braver when she's around, so that makes her more willing to come out. So resident dog's jealous is accidentally feeding the bravery and socialization of the foster. (She doesn't realize it, but that's exactly what we were hoping would happen.)"

That's Just Unfair

"Two cats and a hedgehog. The cats are in disbelief that the hedgehog not only eats dry cat food as her diet (the audacity!) but also that she gets a heat lamp and they don't. They are likely plotting a revolt."

- Smithssoni

"My cat used to get jealous of my hedgehog! Mom would go over to hedgie's cage to visit, and miss kitty would jump off my bed or chair to scamper over and meow at her!"

Chonky Donkey Drama

"We have two donkeys, Geriatric donkey and Chonky donkey. Chonky has separation anxiety and freaks if she can't see Geriatric donkey. Geriatric donkey is too skinny and on a special high-protein diet. Chonky donkey is, well, chonky, and is on a diet, which she hates (but is looking much better).To keep Chonky donkey out of Geriatric donkeys food, I have to separate them. Now Chonky donkey is upset to be separated from Geriatric AND upset she can't steal Geriatric's much yummier food. Upset donkeys are LOUD."

Cats Are Definitely Instigators

​"My cat was near a vent and meowed when I picked her up. Now the neighbor's dog is going nuts and they scream at each other through it."

- Sylar299

"The neighbor: 'Why is my dog barking at a vent?'"

- Comprehensive-Ad3963

"That's amazing. My cat is such an a**hole, he would do that on purpose to wind up the neighbor's dog if he knew he could."

- bluevioletta

"I'm pretty sure this is what she's doing! She looks too smug while doing it"

Vicky Doesn't Give A F***

"My flock of chickens is very dedicated to my rooster and obeys his every command—with the exception of one hen named Vicky. She doesn’t give a f*ck about him and only wants to hang out with us humans. She follows us around and is just super friendly and cute and chatty, and of course, we spoil her with delicious treats all day. When I weed the garden she’s right behind me, scratching up the soil like she’s helping me lol and eating all the newly exposed bugs. She’ll walk up to us, look up, and say 'hmm-hmm?' like she’s asking, 'What’s goin’ on?' The other hens are always by the rooster’s side, but she comes and goes as she pleases."

"Rooster can’t stand it. He does everything he can to get her attention, like making the 'I found food' call and picking up a random pebble to pretend it’s a treat he found. She figured out this ruse very quickly."

"If she starts to run toward us he’ll run ahead of her, stand in her way, and stomp his little rooster feet. She just runs past him, lol."

"He gets especially mad when she’s late coming back to the coop at the end of the day because she’s hanging out with us, and he tries to herd her back over to it. She doesn’t give a F*CK and just sits on the porch with us, and we all watch him run around screaming and having a fit because she doesn’t want to go to bed yet. It’s hilarious."

"Somehow she’s still like #2 in the pecking order tho, she’s an alpha chicken"

Tortoise-Pigeon Tensions

"We have a Pigeon thats half blind and can't fly that started using our tortoise's terrarium as its house in winter."

"Problems began when we started letting our tortoises outside in summer since they would randomly meet inside of it and the pigeon would panic."

"Now he has learned that the tortoises are harmless so now they just chill"

- NoLoveWeebWeb

Cats Are Scary Too

"My blue heelers scared of my cat. My cat chills with the jack russell but hates the blue heeler. The blue heeler doesnt like to be away from the jack russell. Cue a terrified dog staring into the room just to be hissed at."

- Stunning_Guest_8685

"the Heeler probably tried to herd the cat once and will never be forgiven for trying to tell the cat what to do."

Pet drama is the spice of life.

Even before these far too frequent cases of violence in schools, not all students felt safe going to school every day.

As bullying continues to be an ongoing problem, with students being bullied by fellow students and teachers alike.

Sadly, bullying has become so commonplace that many students and teachers might witness it and not think much of it.

Every now and then, however, people will witness something happening within the presumably safe walls of a school which still keeps them awake at night.

Something so shocking or horrific that should simply never happen anywhere... let alone in a school.

More often than not, when we indulge in a television show, we accept the fact that not everything we're watching is 100% realistic.

Even outside the world of science fiction and fantasy, we acknowledge that certain conflicts resolve a bit easier than they likely would in real life ("you had me at hello"? seriously?), or that modern medicine hasn't evolved quite that much (Meredith Grey drowning and coming back to life anyone?)

However, there are certain tropes and clichés which are becoming increasingly commonplace in film and television which result in viewers finding themselves truly unable to suspend their disbelief.

Sometimes not even coming until the film's climax, leading viewers to think "surely they're not going to go there?"

Only to find themselves infuriatingly disappointed that yes, they did.
