Strange Names Given To Pets Twitter Thread Goes Viral

We all have that one (/one hundred) weird name we call our pets. I call my cat "Bellybutton" sometimes, I don't know why or how it happened, but she gets it, the smart kitty. Well, apparently I'm not the only one who gives suuuper strange names to her adorable pets, and twitter has decided to prove it to me. 

It all started with one tweet by @eef_nestor that went viral that stated: "what I call my dog Spencer" followed by some of the most ridiculous names we've ever seen, names that put even my "Bellybutton" to shame. And twitter users jumped in, writing down their own ridiculous pet names with pictures to go with them, and a thread that started with one dog ended up an enormous thread with hundreds of replies that are all endlessly entertaining. 

twitter thread of strange names we give our pets that went viral tweets about dogs cats and a bird thumbnail includes two pictures of a dog and the caption 'Dog - vincent @heycranky Replying to @eef_nestor what i call my spencer (a thread) - speno - SPENCER - hehe puppy'

Cats Leaving Their Paw Marks Throughout History Thread Goes Viral

You know how cats always go to places they shouldn't go to, always sit where they shouldn't, always act like absolute hooligans? Yeah, they've always done that. Apparently, all throughout history, cats have been walking around in important places, on important documents, leaving their kitty paw marks, and now, we have proof.

A twitter thread by the user @DannyDutch who collected all the pieces of evidence of how cats have been walking over our things for over 4,000 years has gone vial. People added their own pictures to the thread as well, and we found another few. Some other users also gave their own purrfect additions, showing that cats are still leaving their marks to this day.

Corgis Crossed With Other Dog Breeds (Twitter Thread)

Twitter user @soapachu brings up a really solid point, "a corgi crossed with any other breed just ends up looking like a corgi disguised as the other dog." And after seeing the proof below, there's just no denying the truth. 

Corgis crossed with other dog breeds do indeed just look like a corgi donning a costume. And they do it wonderfully. Our Spooktober continues with corgis disguised as other dog breeds, just in time for the Halloweenie feels! The best part? Each photo below is probably just the cutest thing we've ever witnessed. Corgis are already known for the cuteness, heck, all dogs in general just scream adorableness. But for each breed to have the miniature-ness of a corgi? We're melting.

Unrecognizable And Amazing Medieval Animal Paintings (Twitter Thread)

These medieval paintings of animals will never get old, and there are always new ridiculous paintings to discover! Last time, it was revealed to the world that paintings, during the Medieval Ages, were filled with cats licking their own butts

No, we are not kidding. It's totally a real thing and we don't know why. And now, thanks to Twitter user, @DannyDutch, we have new Medieval art to gawk and obsess over. A thread of medieval paintings of animals that look nothing like the animals they are supposed to be. Why? Because the artists themselves have never seen these animals before, and are going off of descriptions of said animal. 

Reminds us of how we picture dinosaurs today. Who knows, we could be terribly off when it comes to the prehistoric giants. 

Why medieval animal painting is your favorite? We slightly intrigued and afraid of the beaver.

Woman Sparks Debate After Dumping Water On Kid, Who Dumped Water On Her Cat

It all started when Twitter user @shannoncooperox shared this little anecdote of her 10-year-old neighbor dumping water on her cat while she couldn't just ignore it. 

That's when things got really heated. 

The people with kids came out at her claiming she is a full-grown adult who has no right to punish a kid this way. On the other hand, cat people were all in favor. 

What do you think?

Hilarity Ensues After Woman Tweets an Optical Illusion Pic of Her Dog

With over 13,000 retweets and 43,000 likes over the span of a few days, Twitter is having a mini-meltdown due to this mind-boggling optical illusion of a photo, posted by Twitter user @dancingfool75.

What do you see when first seeing the pic? Many users claimed to see some sort of evil horse-pig hybrid monster. Others saw a deformed or possessed goat.

We're not going to lie, took us awhile to figure out what it was we were staring at. 

Thankfully, someone shared the answer with users.

Ancient Old Shark Discovered, Hilarity Ensues on Twitter

A shark was recently discovered in the Arctic Ocean. Not just any regular shark, oh no, this shark discovered was found to be 392-years-old. 

Let's think about that for a second. 

Three-hundred and ninety-two years old. 

And while researching this shark, it turns out ANOTHER shark was discovered in 2019, in the Northern Atlantic, that scientists have reason to believe it was born as early as 1505. That means, this Greenland shark was born before Shakespeare and is -- wait for it -- FIVE-HUNDRED AND TWELVE years old! 

The Greenland shark could very well be the world oldest living vertebrate. But we're here to talk about the 392-year-old shark that caused the follow entertaining Twitter thread.

All we can take away from this is that sharks are still terrifying but kinda sorta incredible... don't you think?
