    19 Pet Fails And Moments That Will Make You Relate To These Pet Parents

    Why are you like this, Mittens!?

    Let me share a little story: I was walking up my stairs late at night to go to bed with nothing but the flashlight on my phone to light my way up the steps. At the top of the stairs, my cat waited for me and lunged at me for the perfect jump scare. Much to her dissatisfaction, I only stumbled a bit and didn't plummet to my death.

    Of course, she was just being playful. We love our pets, but sometimes they do stuff that leaves us like:

    So I searched the Internet for fails that only pet parents would appreciate. Here's what I gathered:

    1. You can kiss your most private moments goodbye when you have a cat. Bathroom time is now 'pet me' time.

    2. There's no kind way to ask them to stop letting one rip.

    Trying to work but my dog keeps walking in front of me & farting. So I send him outside, wait for him to 💩 so he hides behind a tree to cheat me then returns to the house and the process repeats. He was walked at 5am & 8:45 am & hasn't eaten. He is just being an a-hole to me

    3. If you enjoy ear-piercing barking while on the phone, you might be a dog person.

    9. Speaking of bills, those vet bills don't get any cheaper. But how can you get mad at that face!?

    I’m scared to give him toys now. We got him toys for Christmas and he ate them and had to have emergency surgery to remove them! Behold the face of a MENACE. (This was December) he’s like “merry Xmas I got you a ungodly amount of vet bills”

    10. If you're looking for literal pet fails, just allow your pet enough floor space.
