Pet pandemonium

Author George Eliot once said, “Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.” Depending on the personality of your pet, you may argue the second part of that statement, but surely you can agree that your favourite animals bring a richness to life in a way that no one else can. Still, pets can be pretty darn mischievous and silly when they want to be, and with the advent of pet cams, we’re able to catch them in the act of goofiness now more than ever. These pets caught on camera might be in need of their own reality shows.

Dogs really are man’s best friend, even when you’re too sick to play with them. When Jill P. found herself feeling quite ill, her dog was caught in the act on her pet cam doing something very sweet… and labour-intensive. “When I was sick in bed sleeping, she brought me 36 bones,” Jill explains. “She dropped them, one by one, on the ‘passenger’s side’ of my bed.” Now if only that sweet pup had the ability to whip up some soothing soup and gracefully bring that by, too.

Here are 11 of the creepiest things ever caught on security cameras.

When a radio host in California repeatedly came home to find his refrigerator and freezer open, there could only be one culprit – his dog Allie. To find out just how the sweet yellow Lab was doing this, Adam Montiel set up a camera, then posted the video on YouTube for everyone to enjoy. Allie can be seen using her mouth to open the drawer to the freezer, pulling a few items out. Eventually, she uses the same technique to open each refrigerator door. Pretty impressive and comical!

The most well-fed and loved pups might still enjoy a snack on their own time, when their parents are away. A dog named Max was caught on camera doing just that as soon as his owners left their home. He is seen perusing the kitchen sink for anything that may have been left on a plate. Then – and this is where his gymnastics skills really become impressive – he scales the countertops and jumps at some food that is placed high up on a shelf close to the ceiling, knocking the boxes down so that he can enjoy their contents. He didn’t stop until he got to every last one.

This is why your dog sighs.

Toilet humour

Your pets are an important part of the family – they know it and you know it. And sometimes they really want to do all of the mundane things humans do, like going to the bathroom…on a toilet. The Daily Star reported that cat owner Kirstie Fraser was in for the surprise of her life when she caught Butch, her 2-year-old kitty, on the loo. Butch then proceeded to pee right into the porcelain vessel, just as he’s likely seen the family do before.

Here are 17 things your cat would love to tell you. 

Water play

When a family with a particularly sweet inground pool setup in their backyard consistently found their deck and furniture soaked after being away for a few hours, they were concerned about trespassers. Could their neighbours really be partying in their pool while they were away from the house? Determined to find out, they set up cameras, only to spy the family dog having a grand old time repeatedly sliding down the waterslide and splashing into the pool. A smaller dog appears on the deck but doesn’t get in on the action.

How smart is your dog? Here’s how to tell.

Bed time

We might think of our dogs as more sophisticated creatures than, say, a small child, but that doesn’t mean they don’t yearn to rebel against the rules every once in a while. A pet cam video posted to YouTube shows one squirrely little devil prowling the area just after his owner leaves. Once he senses the coast is clear, he slyly jumps onto the forbidden bed and surveys the scene. He then proceeds to roll around and dance Snoopy-style all over the bed with the pure joy one experiences when they are breaking a rule.

Three dogs and a few outdoor pillows – what could possibly go wrong? Caught on camera, the three furry cuties are seen ripping apart patio pillows, with the entire yard already covered in the fluff. When they are spotted red-handed by their owner, all three immediately stop what they’re doing and look straight at the human with the most innocent looks on their faces. What happened next is the truly giggle-inducing part. Two of the dogs, as if they had this planned, walk away together in one direction. As if to say, “Hey, mum, it wasn’t us. It was that guy. We tried to stop him! Honest!”

Check out these hilarious photos of guilty dogs caught red-handed.

What happens when house cats discover an ice machine for the first time? Pet papa Bruce Spence found out after returning from a week-long business trip and fortunately it was caught on camera. One kitty can be seen climbing on top of the machine, pushing the button to produce loads of ice while his feline friend watches on in amazement. When Spence posted the video to social media he captioned it with, “Finally found out why my floor was all wet when I came home from work.”

Here are some common ‘facts’ about cats that are actually false.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way – just look to one dog who was bound and determined to make it up to the kitchen counter. Caught on a security camera and posted on YouTube, the pup is seen pulling out the bottom kitchen drawer and ducking in to see if that would give him enough of a boost to reach the counter. When that doesn’t work out he shimmies his way to the back of the drawer and pushes the drawer above it open, hopping into that one. This gives him the height he needs to finally make it up to the counter, where he begins searching the cabinets for a snack!
