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.

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.

Pets Showing Love In Strange But Wholesome Ways

There have been times before where we've been asked, by people who don't have pets: "how do you know that they love you back and don't only love the food you give them?" And in our hearts, the answer is obvious - we can feel it. In every interaction, strange and unique as it may be - we feel the love that our pets have for us

Today, we're bringing you some proof. Our animal-loving ICanHasCheezburger Facebook users shared with us strange ways in which their pets show them they love them, and they were all so hilariously adorable, we simply had to share them with the rest of you guys. If you love your pet and treat it right, it will show you love back.

Funny Tweets About Pets Confused By Human Things (Mostly Dogs)

Sometimes, we find ourselves wondering what our animals are thinking about things that are totally normal to us but must be incredibly strange to them. I mean, I'm pretty sure my dog is very confused about why I'm eating my food using strange utensils rather than shoving my face into it and throwing all my kibble around like is proper. And apparently I'm not the only one who's a bit confused. 

A tweet went viral about a dog being confused by elevators, and other tweets talking about adorable animal confusion by normal human things started flooding in, and it's so funny, we can't stop laughing. Animals are just so adorable when they're confused, and you're totally lying if you say you didn't deliberately try to confuse them with something funny at least once.

Funny Tweets About The Ridiculousness Of Pet Rent

Pet rent - one of the silliest concepts we've ever heard of. Truly, how can you charge my cat rent if she's unemployed, huh? I mean, that's why she's living with me. Realistically, had she been able to find a job, she would have moved out of my house and taken her independence to the next level a long, long time ago. 

For real though, pet rent and pet rent deposits are such a weird concept, and twitters users definitely agree with that. That's why they like joking about it, we think. Joke through the pain, friends, there is no other option.

funny tweets about pet rent thumbnail includes one tweet 'Font - Lena ... @banalplay Hmph. I guess I will take my money and my comically obese cats someplace else!

Dads Falling In Love With Pets They Didn't Want

A tale as old as time... The first act: dads insisting on not getting a pet. The second: dads complaining about the pet the family got and acting like they can barely tolerate it. Act three: finding your dad cuddling your new cat/dog on the couch... still acting like they can only barely tolerate them. 

Really, they should stop pretending, we all see through them. No one can withstand the power of the cute.

r/dadswhodidnotwantpets on Reddit is the ultimate proof of that, considering how many people share their stories on it. It's wholesomeness galore, heartwarming stories and nothing else, and as someone with a dad just like one of those, I love these stories more than anything.

Funny Tweets About (Dis)Allowing Pets On Furniture

So... are your pets allowed on the furniture? My cat tends not to ask. If anything, my cat allows me on the furniture sometimes, since obviously, the bed belongs to her, and the couch belongs to her, and the table... you get it. In my naivety, during the first couple days that I had her, I tried to keep her off the bed for fear of crushing her itty bitty self, but she persisted, and she won, because of course she did. 

And apparently, my cat is not the only one with such purrsuasive abilities. Twitter users have been sharing their own funny stories of (dis)allowing their pets on furniture, and we're both laughing because relatable and crying because relatable. Much as we want to keep our pets off our furniture, we're apparently all too weak for them.  

funny and cute tweets about allowing your pets on the furniture thumbnail includes a picture of a dog sitting on a desk and two tweets 'Rectangle - NeuroCandies @NeuroCandies Are your pets allowed on the furniture? 6:15 AM - Jan 31, 2021 - Twitter for iPhone 869 Retweets 2,786 Quote Tweets 25.2K Likes' 'Dog - Wendy Darling CC @Meidas_Wendy ...

Heartwarming Vintage Photos Reveal The Bond Between People And Animals

If there is one universal truth, it's that people and animals have always shared a bond and connection with one another. Things might be different now but there are some things that never change, like the love between a little boy and his dog. Or the love between a little girl and her cat. Animals have always provided us with hope and joy and these vintage photos only further solidify that. 

It's comforting to know that no matter how much time passes, animals will always be there to bring us smiles and we humans will be there to love them in return.
