I have three cats. It's a non-stop bonanza of drama and cuteness and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Pet owners are used to this, and some of them have shared their recent goings on with Reddit - such as cats whose schedules change, and guinea pigs harboring resentment over watermelon.

How dare that foot?

Giphy

My dog is mad at her own foot. Not sure why, but she's determined to show it what for.

Pro tip: use a squirt bottle.

Giphy

Every time my cat starts scratching the couch my family and I give a quick, stout, "hey!". Because of this, my dog has learned to get all huffy and run over to stop the cat when she hears the scratching start. However, my dog can't differentiate the scratching on the couch vs the scratching on the cat post, so now my cat feels like no place is safe and there's a lot of tension.

Princess_plant

My cat is exactly like this.

Giphy

Had a talk with my puppy about bathroom privacy but he hasn't listened. Offered a compromise- he can come in the bathroom but don't lick or otherwise touch me while I'm in there. He is still insisting that his presence and licks are necessary.

tedelltedell

Cutest drama ever.

Giphy

Our old lady rabbit has decided that the (human) baby is actually hers, and gets very upset and mopey if separated from her. They only get supervised interaction time, though, as the baby is 9 months old and very grabby. If we try and stop her grabbing, the rabbit will come and put herself back against baby's hands to ask for another fur pull.

And yes, the rabbit has a second rabbit to play with - he's much younger and smaller than her too, so it's like she has a baby rabbit too, but she prefers the baby human.

HI HELLO OTHER DOG WHY ARE YOU NOT MY FRIEND?!

Giphy

I moved recently and my dog has not gotten used to all the new neighbors and their dogs yet.

Everyone is super nice and other dogs bark at her too but she's a basset hound which doesn't seem scary, she's so short and adorable but her "HELLO FELLOW DOG" bark sounds like she will eat you and your whole family. Her tail wags the whole time so she's not trying to be ferocious or anything but it sounds intimidating to everyone.

It's just like, this why you don't have new friends yet dog... Calm your floppyass.

lalalola89

Now this is just gross.

Giphy

My dog keeps stealing cat poop out of the litter boxes to eat it and it's driving me crazy. He is not being a good boy.

rascacielos

And you think you have a crap job.

Giphy

I'm the only one who knows the difference between our dog's normal bark and his "I need to go sh*t" bark, and I'm at college rn.

ronswansonchairs

This is drama.

Giphy

My bird is pissed at my guinea pig for eating all the watermelon.

SleeplessOwl

This slutty cat.

Giphy

Our well-fed and well-loved cat broke into a neighbor's house and rolled around on the floor, exposing her belly to the old man who lived in said house like some common gutter tramp. This cat now shoots daggers at me every time I refuse to indulge in her floozyizms and let her out, but she's already made a name for herself on that Nextdoor app and is known as a sort of a neighborhood tart. Enjoy a few days indoors, you brazen hussie. :(

A_HELPFUL_POTATO

This cat's career is waning.

Giphy

My girl cat has been late to her job recently. We took her on for the position of after-shower greeter; she's always sitting on the toilet by the tub whenever I get out and meows at me, but lately she's been tardy and had affected her most recent yearly evaluation.

I told her that the boy cat was looking to change departments lately, and while we didn't want to lose her, she had to make more of an effort to keep her position

As of this week, she's been showing up early, but I still wonder what's going on in her life. I hope she's okay.

throwawaychilder

Oh, the drama.

Giphy

My mom has 2 humming bird feeders that she is obsessed with watching. She is super concerned because one is "being a bully" standing on top of the feeder and attacking other humming birds trying to feed.

Become a real hot topic of conversation

guyyy7

This owner betrayal.

Giphy

The dog is currently not speaking to me because I did not give him the pizza crust like I usually do. But I covered the slices with garlic sauce. He is upset and betrayed.

robtica93

It's flea season.

Giphy

I just put her Frontline on and she'll be pissed for a few days. Plus we're camping tomorrow so I've been packing and she's angsty thinking we are leaving her with family (we are not.)

heythanksbud

This is impressive.

Giphy

My guinea fowl family had a close call with a hawk today. They were on the open hill above our home having a morning stroll and hunting breakfast. Then the parents noticed a hawk circling and calmly told their 12 young keets (4 weeks old) to play hide and seek, hunker down in the grass, and not make a peep until they came back to get them.

The parents then hiked a ways away and distracted the hawk with their piercing warning calls. This caught my attention, and when humans started getting involved the hawk gave up and flew away. When I saw the hawk, I was certain that the baby birds had perished and that this was the cause of the parents' cries of distress.

However, as I scoured the landscape for what I was certain would be the site of a massacre, I found myself instead in the midst of 12 small grey rocks covered in feathers. They were so still and well camouflaged that I would never have seen them if I weren't specifically looking for them.

After the coast was clear, the parents went back to gather their young ones and brought them back to the farmhouse, where I offered them a meal of fresh chick crumble and a special treat of white millet for dessert.

majestic_alpaca

This is the best kind of drama.

Giphy

My cat has finally figured out that my alarm going off means I'm making plans to leave the bed so moves up closer and burrows in while batting my hand to be petted while purring and being extremely warm thus making me not want to move.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
