Pet Stories Thread

Recommended Posts

SleepingPhlox

I love people's pet stories.  I love people who love their pets.  I never ever get tired of hearing about that cute thing someone's cat does or the funny thing their dog does.  So I thought how about a thread for everyone to share their pet stories!  Whether it happened today, or years ago, a one off event or a habitual thing your pet does, a current pet or a beloved departed pet, funny or touching or downright weird, cat or dog or horse or rabbit or lizard or fish...just any story about any pet.  My personal preference would be to keep it happy but that's just my take.

I'll start with one that just happened right now. It's not my best pet story but it's the one freshest in my mind.  My cat was eating his before-bed treat (my cats are extraordinarily spoiled, ok?) and he decided he was done. But hey, there's still a bit left on the plate.  And why let that go to waste, right?  Clever cat that he is he decided to cover it up so he could save it for later...I guess?  Either that or he very creatively wanted to tell me that he compared what I fed him to poo.  :laugh:  And now one of the shoes I was going to wear tomorrow, a pen, and a receipt I hope I wasn't saving for anything are now sitting in cat food.  And he looks WAY too pleased with himself.

So, any other stories out there? :)

I love this thread already! :heart: Pet stories are the best, great idea for a thread, @SleepingPhlox!

And how determiend was your cat? I admire him for being able to even drag a shoe there to cover the rest of food O.o

And your story reminded me of a cat we had a few years ago. He was such an energetic cat and had this dog-like behaviour of knawing at ANYTHING... shoes, pens, sofa cushions, whatever :D What we did not know about him, though, was that he also had a hamster streak about him... so when we moved the couch away from the wall one day (it's one of those huge L-shaped couches where you need three people to move it) after he'd been with us for a few months, we found loads of stuff behind it - pens, receits, all of the cat toys I've been trying to find for ages :D, feathers, other random little things, like a ruler, a magnet, more or less anything that was small and that he could carry there.

Oh thank God I'm not the only one doing this for my felines! :lol: 

Um… so, one of my cats has a very strict going-to-bed routine. I close the door to my bedroom at night so I get at least a few hours without being climbed on by Mr Cuddleface McIntrusion, which means my cats are exiled (that's how they seem to view it) to kitchen and hallway. I can usually lure him out there with just the before-bed treats, but his sister demands that I carry her to the kitchen. In her play tunnel. And as if that's not bad enough, I have to say "weeeeei!" while carrying her. :blushing:  If I don't, or if I don't sound enthusiastic enough, she jumps out and runs back and into her second play tunnel, and I have to repeat it. I don't know how this even came about, but it's easier to just humour her than take a fight in the middle of the night. :rolleyes: 

We have plenty more of these weird little routines, but that's the one that comes to mind because it's about to happen within an hour. :lol:

Oh my goodness this is great! I don't really have one big story but a  few lil tidbits.

When we first brought my kitty home from the shelter, he hid under the blankets for a few days. When he started coming out, he would look out the window and bark at the birds. He always gets the zoomies after he poops. He loves to ride around on shoulders, and sometimes when you bend down to look in the fridge he'll come running and launch himself onto your back. If he's not in the mood for shoulder perches he might try to crawl into the fridge instead.

Just because I miss her right now, as she's on vacation, I thought I'd share a fun trait that my horse has. We call it her "ding"-mode, because it's like there's a bell or something going off in her head like DING! and then she's mischievous or obnoxious for a while for absolutely no reason. :rofl:She can be super serious before it happens, and then she just goes off doing really weird things, and then afterwards she refuses to acknowledge it, she's like "nope, wasn't me, I totally didn't do that." It's really funny, except when it happens when you're trying to do something serious and people are looking. :rolleyes: 

During one of her ding modes, she stood on her own foot and pretended to be unable to move. She knew very well all she had to do was to, you know, remove her left front hoof from her right front hoof, but instead she did a couple of fruitless attempts at lifting her right hoof, which obviously wouldn't work because she blocked herself, and looked at me like "no, I can't move. I'm going to have to stand here forever." She knows very well that I don't actually buy her shenanigans, but it's her way of making jokes. This horse has a very well-developed (though strange) sense of humour. 

Another time, I had just fed her and four other horses their breakfast in the pasture. They had one pile of hay each, with some distance between so there wouldn't be any fights. She was munching away, then suddenly she looked up, ears pricked up, and you could almost HEAR the "ding!". Then she left her pile, took a slow gallop in front of the others, snatched one mouthful of hay from each pile, and returned to her own as if nothing happened. I laughed so hard at her, that about two minuters later, SHE DID IT AGAIN, and that time it was ONLY to make me laugh. She looked very pleased with herself, but when she did it a third time, the then pack leader firmly showed her that enough was enough and chased her back to her own spot. :lol:

Oh man you guys, these are all so great, I love them so much!  Cats are the greatest, they just march to their own tune, don't they?  And @Chanel_no5 your horse sounds terrifyingly intelligent!  :laugh:  That's great!

I have another one (okay I have too many stories, but here's one for now :laugh: )  I have a cat that can open doors.  She leaps up on the doorknob and turns it.  Doesn't matter what shape of doorknob, she will be able to open it.  So we have to secure all the doors in the house or else.  And it means if one person goes in a room, they will secure the door behind them and then if the other person wants to go in we have to knock and wait.  And even though I know full well it's the cat, there is something VERY unsettling about sitting at my desk late at night when everything is silent, then hearing CLUNK! and the doorknob starts to slowly turn with a light creak...

This just happened: my cat was on my lap for a cuddle session, purring away, when suddenly he farted. It smelled so god-awful that when he caught whiff of it, he just upped and left! :rofl: Leaving me to suffocate in his odour, no pity whatsoever! :yuck::lol:

This happened just last night, I was laying on the couch half asleep when suddenly this alarm starts going off and it startles me so I'm scrambling for my phone only to see that it's not my phone. Okay, maybe it's the laptop? Nope! Turns out it's Edgar in his cage, mimicking an alarm clock! He loves making soft noises whenever his blanket goes on at bedtime but I guess he thought I should be up! Maybe he was mad I covered him up? :laugh: I love this bird!

You've reminded me about the big black labradoodle that I used to have. He used to fart while lying down, then he'd get up, sniff where his back end had been then move to the other end of the room and lie down again!

Um, so, I woke up this morning to two crazy playing cats. One came jumping onto my bed with something in his mouth, that he proceeded to leave there before running off. I thought it was a crumpled up sock or something, because it was red and black and they don't have any toys those colours. I looked at it... 

AND IT'S A CAT TOY SHAPED AS A LADYBUG???

Let me clarify - we don't have any of those. I have never seen this toy before. I have definitely never bought it, because it's one of those big ass soft cat toys and my cats usually prefer to play with small toys that rattles. It has a little string so you can wind it up and make it move, and everything. Once I bought a mouse with that mechanism for them, but they were utterly uninterested in it, so I've never wasted money on those again. 

So where the hell did this ladybug toy come from? Like... WHERE DID MY CATS SUMMON THE CAT TOY GOD?? (And does he take human requests too?)

My pets do enjoy confusing me on a regular basis, but I think this one takes the cake. :blink:

Especially since they're indoor cats, so they can't have wandered off and stolen it from a fellow feline somewhere else. I'm at a loss here, seriously. The only thing I can think about that makes ANY sense is if it has somehow attached to my laundry down in the communal laundry room and tagged along upstairs, but I feel like I should have noticed a big ass ladybug in the pile when I folded the laundry…? :rofl:

I think if aliens visited our lovely messed up planet, they'd have a bit more important things to do than to graciously give my cats toy gifts. UNLESS the aliens are CATS!! :omg::lol:

No, but seriously, it HAS to be the "laundry theory". I should put up a poster in the laundry room asking if anyone's kitty is missing a toy. :lol:

Are you kidding?  Why would the aliens come all this way and NOT bring the obviously superior and clearly in charge life forms a little something?  Arriving empty handed would just be rude.  :laugh:

Oh, well, now that you put it THAT way, it does make sense... gulp. I hope I'm popular enough among my feline companions that I won't be death-rayed when they invade… :unsure::yay:
