She was the ugliest one at the shelter & that’s why they adopted her. She’s over 20 years old & such a geriatric marvel that the vet is treating her for free now. Happy dog with a happy home. u/JuJuJooie'

Awwdorably Funny Names Given To Pets

Giving a name to your pet is something sacred. It is like naming a child. It's the name you'll be using when you ask them "who's an adorable little baby?", it's the name you'll be yelling when they inevitably do something that they know they're not supposed to do. The name must be chosen with care and with the future in mind... 

Oh, we're kidding, the best pet names are the silliest ones. There is nothing funnier than walking your dog outside and yelling "Beef Stroganoff, don't eat that!" It's perfect. And apparently, our lovely Facebook users have given some of the silliest (strangely food-related) names to their pets, and we just had to share our favorite ones with you.

Facebook comments of funny names given to pets thumbnail includes two Facebook comments 'Human body - Shelley Ashby All my pets have food names. I have 3 cats: Lollipop, Rocky Road and Taco cat. And 2 dogs: Jelly Bean and Strawberry. 14 Like · Reply · Message 2d' and 'Human body - Gayle Robinson I kow of a rooster called Tyrannosaurus Pecks! OD 29 Like · Reply · Message · 2d'

Cats Truths Every Pet Owner Relates To (Memes)

Cat owners UNITE! 

Let's just start off with this, we love our cats. But that doesn't mean that they sometimes have these "adorable" yet weird quirks about them. 

Like always having to let us know that their food is only 2 fourths full, or when they only show interest in you when you need to focus on work or anything else! (we know, you know, that we know, what we're talking about) 

But all in all, that's what makes us love them even more, and to know that all cat owns go through the same struggles well, and even tweet about just how much cat owners relate to one another

So sit back, and get ready to just scream "OMG, me too!"

Redditors Reveal The Most Recent Pet Drama Occuring In Their Household

If you live in a household with multiple pets, there may be drama enfolding constantly, whether we see it or not. I once lived in a small apartment with my two cats and my exes cat who would constantly bully my cats and would guard their litter box so they were too scared to use it!

When Redditor, u/wheel-snipe-celly, asked the AskReddit community, "People who own multiple pets, what is some drama
going on between them right now?" thousands of comments came pouring in. If you're bored and in need of some drama (that isn't your own) in your life right now, this is the perfect gathering of stories. 

Get yourself all comfy and cozy for all this pet drama

thumbnail of askreddit response "Dog 1 is trying to trick dog 2 into following her into the garden so that dog 1 can then storm back indoors to take dog 2's bone she is enjoying. Dog 3 is sitting in the on the couch quietly waiting for this to happen, to be the actual winner of this scheme."

People Celebrating Their Senior Pets' Special Birthdays (Tweets)

No, I can't come hang out with you today, I'm celebrating my cat's Quinceañera. Yes, that's a perfect reason not to hang out with someone. This is a very important thing. And if the person you're talking to doesn't understand your reasoning for not hanging out with them, then they clearly don't know what it's like to have a pet, let alone a senior one. 

Every single birthday is precious with senior pets. Every day is deserving of celebration. Especially, when it comes to the most special kinds of birthdays - happy 10s, sweets sixteens, Quinceañeras. Need to look for as many reasons as possible to celebrate them. And today, we're joining in on twitter's celebration of senior pets, because they've earned it.

So, happy birthday to allllll the senior pets out there!! We hope you get many, many more birthdays such as this one.

People Share The Funniest Thing They've Said To Their Pets

Admit it, you too have a habit of talking to your pet. There's no shame in that. As pet owners, we can proudly say that we talk to our pets too. Why? Well, sometimes we do it just because it feels natural - they're part of the family after all. And other times we do it because we know they like it too - feeling involved, being treated as an equal. 


Of course, they don't understand us (as far as we know), so the things we say to them can be... kinda ridiculous sometimes. And when we asked our amazing Cheezburger Facebook users to tell us the funniest thing they've ever said to their pet, they sure as heck did not disappoint, sharing some of the funniest things we've ever seen.

Heartwarming Tweets Of Rescued Pets Finally Feeling At Home

When it comes to rescued animals, sometimes, no matter how hard you try, it takes a while for them to get used to their new environment, to learn to love and trust the humans that saved them.

And even when it's not your own rescue, that uncontainable joy is spread to everyone.

Redditor Writes Heartbreaking Prompt About Dogs In The Afterlife

Oh, the feels. And this time, it's pretty heavy. There must be someone chopping up endless onions to prepare for some onion-chopping competition out there because the tears are here and they won't stop flowing. 

It's so hard for us to let go of our pets, it always hurts and the pain never actually leaves us, we just learn how to live with it over time. In a beautiful, and ultra-heartbreaking writing prompt, one Redditor brought the feels and brought them hard. The original question that prompted the writing prompt was posted by Redditor u/Epidexipteryx, and was, "When a beloved dog passes in the hereafter, they are given a choice. They can cross the Rainbow Bridge and await for their owners, or join the Sleepless Watch and defend the world from evil spirits."

Redditor, u/Euthenios, wrote this marvelous masterpiece below. Just a little warning, perhaps have a tissue or two beside you in preparation.

Funny Unexpected Difficulties Of Having Pet Fish (Tweets)

For some reason, fish are considered to be one of the easiest pets to raise, but if you've ever had a fish, you know that is so not true. The sudden horror of seeing your fish floating upside down... not many things compare. My first pet was a fish, and for a long time afterwards, it discouraged me from having any pets at all. I mean, if I couldn't handle raising fish, how could I ever handle anything more complicated than that?

Eventually, I got over myself and got a different "more difficult to raise" pet and realizes that fish were by far more difficult to keep. And apparently, I'm not the one the only who thinks that, considering the sudden influx of tweets about the difficulties of raising fish. Thank you, twitter, for yet again making me feel better about myself. 

tweets about the difficulties about raising fish thumbnail includes one tweet 'Font - sarah lugor!! @sarahlugor getting a pet fish is 1000x more work than anyone tells you. it should not be ANYONES first pet 9:41 AM Feb 23, 2021 · Twitter for iPhone 1,960 Retweets 396 Quote Tweets 33.6K Likes'
