Pet mother and father understand how dramatic our furry pals may be. In that regard, they’re like youngsters. You gotta educate them to share, and be sort to one another. However on the finish of the day, they’re animals and whereas they could be good, they’re nonetheless gonna combat over who will get to put on the canine mattress typically.
Somebody determined to ask multi-pet house owners on Reddit in regards to the pet drama happening of their homes and pet house owners delivered their humorous tales. Right here’s how commenters responded.
Individuals with a number of pets, what is a few pet drama happening between them proper now?
My flock of chickens may be very devoted to my rooster and obeys his each command—except for one hen named Vicky. She doesn’t give a f**ok about him and solely desires to hang around with us people. She follows us round and is simply tremendous pleasant and cute and chatty, and naturally, we spoil her with scrumptious treats all day. Once I weed the backyard she’s proper behind me, scratching up the soil like she’s serving to me lol and consuming all of the newly uncovered bugs. She’ll stroll as much as us, lookup, and say “hmm-hmm?” like she’s asking, “What’s goin’ on?” The opposite hens are all the time by the rooster’s facet, however she comes and goes as she pleases.
Rooster can’t stand it. He does the whole lot he can to get her consideration, like making the “I discovered meals” name and choosing up a random pebble to fake it’s a deal with he discovered. She discovered this ruse in a short time.
If she begins to run towards us he’ll run forward of her, stand in her approach, and stomp his little rooster ft. She simply runs previous him, lol.
He will get particularly mad when she’s late coming again to the coop on the finish of the day as a result of she’s hanging out with us, and he tries to herd her again over to it. She doesn’t give a F**Okay and simply sits on the porch with us, and all of us watch him run round screaming and having a match as a result of she doesn’t wish to go to mattress but. It’s hilarious.
Someway she’s nonetheless like #2 within the pecking order tho, she’s an alpha rooster
Edit: right here is [Vicky](https://i.imgur.com/uzuSsau.jpg)
And [here’s](https://i.imgur.com/Fk77pwa.jpg) a blurry image of the rooster puffing up in rage as a result of I gave some corn to his spouse
We've two donkeys, Geriatric donkey and Chonky donkey. Chonky has separation nervousness and freaks if she will be able to’t see Geriatric donkey. Geriatric donkey is just too skinny and on a particular high-protein food plan. Chonky donkey is, nicely, chonky, and is on a food plan, which she hates (however is trying significantly better).To maintain Chonky donkey out of Geriatric donkeys meals, I've to separate them. Now Chonky donkey is upset to be separated from Geriatric AND upset she will be able to’t steal Geriatric’s a lot yummier meals.
Upset donkeys are LOUD.
My geese are so dramatic about sharing their swimming pools. I've three geese and two swimming pools, one inexperienced, one pink. All three have determined the pink pool is their favourite and combat over who will get to be in it. All of them three can match comfortably in a single pool, however they chase one another out and “combat” about who will get to be the one one in there. It’s hilarious to look at. This spring, I’m shopping for new swimming pools. Three all pink ones lol.
Additionally they bully the wild birds and squirrels. And once they hear the neighborhood canine begin barking, they run to the again fence and begin quacking actually loud.
The cat continues to present zero f***s the canine even exists. Canine finds this unacceptable.
We've a brand new foster canine who's fearful of the world and the whole lot in it. She’s been cowering within the nook of the kitchen for days, however she’s simply now getting courageous sufficient to start out popping out to solicit consideration. Our resident canine is jealous so she retains coming over to attempt to steal the eye. The foster canine loves the resident canine, and appears to get braver when she’s round, in order that makes her extra prepared to come back out. So resident canine’s jealous is unintentionally feeding the bravery and socialization of the foster. (She doesn’t notice it, however that’s precisely what we have been hoping would occur.)
I've a woman cat that doesn’t get alongside along with her two youthful brothers (who're peas in a pod). They chase her and he or she runs and hisses, completely terrified.. We have been at our wits finish as a result of they aren’t violent kitties besides to her.
Then we began watching her habits extra intently and seen how she would play with them when she didn’t suppose we have been watching. Sit by them, present her stomach, even groom them. As quickly as she seen we have been within the room she’d act like they attacked her, even when they hadn’t carried out something. Eye opening for certain.
Two cats and a hedgehog. The cats are in disbelief that the hedgehog not solely eats dry cat meals as her food plan (the audacity!) but in addition that she will get a warmth lamp they usually don’t.
They're doubtless plotting a revolt.
My horses who're bffs bought a brand new buddy. Buddy likes each horses. Horse 1 likes buddy, horse 2 doesn't, so now unique two horses are in a tough patch of their friendship. Looks like a cliche problem between highschool ladies.
i've a cat & chickens. one in all my chickens chased my cat yesterday and now she’s hiding in my room
My cat has found my canine mattress, that he hardly ever makes use of, is greater than hers. My canine has found she is utilizing his uncared for mattress and has now determined he MUST use it instantly when he sees her on it. He barks at her and boops her together with his nostril, she simply will get much more snug and appears at him as if to say “ya proper kiddo, who’s boss round right here!”
She is an 8 yr outdated hairless cat named Mew, and he's an nearly 2 yr outdated Dogue de Bordeaux named Wilfred. 🥰
My orange cat alternates between seeing my Xolo as his finest pal and engaging prey. I’ve seen them cuddle fortunately and play with toys collectively. I've additionally seen the cat get up, stretch, stroll over to the sleeping Xolo simply to smack him and calmly return to his sleeping spot. My German shepherd has discovered take a chunk of her water and maintain it in her mouth. She is going to then discover the sleeping cat and dump the water on the cat. The cat understandably hates this. My German shepherd takes countless delight on this. I just lately purchased an air tag for my keys as a result of my Xolo has all the time been a kleptomaniac and he has a brand new hiding spot I've but to search out.
My canine stole the blueberry my conure was consuming so she fluffed up and head down charged at him and chased him across the room
Two cats. Our older one likes to put instantly beside the automated water fountain, guarding the “watering gap” like a predator mendacity in wait. Then our different cat comes up and needs to drink, however she gained’t let him. So he simply licks the highest of her head till she strikes sufficient for him to get water.
Yup, excessive drama, shall be promoting the film rights later this yr.
Considered one of my cats needed a bit of premium canned tuna, after which his sister got here and b***h slapped him, presumably as a result of he wouldn’t cease yelling. Now he's sulking on his personal within the nook and wouldn’t even take a look at us.
There’s a major comfortable spot that one in all my cats likes to sleep in and the opposite sits there simply so she will be able to’t. I swear she even has a smug look on her face whereas doing it.
Two of our cats have an odd scenario with their allogrooming.
One cat, the elder, has a standard cat tongue. Not clean, however not painful. She’ll groom the youthful cat each time they’re feeling affectionate sufficient to not combat one another for area on a mattress, window, and so forth.
The youthful cat has a set of small, freshly sharpened knives for a tongue. As soon as the elder cat is completed grooming her, she’ll stand up and attempt to reciprocate. Besides, if we let her groom the older cat for greater than a minute, she finally ends up with one of many elder cat’s claws protruding of her brow.
The youthful cat, in fact, has no thought why this retains taking place, and thus retains making an attempt to supply return-grooming providers, to the identical outcomes, each time.
So we’ll be watching TV or going to sleep, and impulsively we’ll hear the *Schliiip, schliip* of the youthful cat’s ridiculously sharp tongue grating in opposition to the older cat. We've to hurry into no matter room they’re in (and it's loud sufficient to be heard in different rooms) and separate them earlier than it goes on too lengthy.
We've a Pigeon thats half blind and may’t fly that began utilizing our tortoise’s terrarium as its home in winter.
Issues started after we began letting our tortoises exterior in summer season since they might randomly meet inside it and the pigeon would panic.
Now he has realized that the tortoises are innocent so now they simply chill
Edit: Okay this bought approach an excessive amount of consideration I used to be anticipating, I'll go searching to see if I've some footage round, regardless of the pigeon being with us for nearly like 2 years, he’s nonetheless frightened of us so taking shut footage of him or him contained in the terrarium makes it go buckwild so we actually don’t attempt to take pics in any respect however I must verify my archives.
As for the entire social animal points, don’t fear, we've an enclosed 4-walled yard so the pigeon goes out and chills with different pigeons and birds all through the day so it will get to do socials and not using a fear.
Edit 2: Didn’t discover a pic of the entire household collectively however a pic of the pigeon contained in the terrarium chilling https://i.imgur.com/mISAePZ.png simply to show it’s actual. It’s a bit low for a pigeon however remember it could’t fly, goes in by itself will and is free for the remainder of the day besides the evening.
The fixed drama at our place is our fats cat is all the time making an attempt to steal the little cat’s meals. He gained’t even end his personal meals earlier than he’s making an attempt to nab hers, despite the fact that they’re fed in separate rooms. Somebody must be on fixed watch whereas they’re consuming, or else she gained’t get something, poor factor.
Right here’s my pet drama: My runt Jack Russell (Lil Bit; 5 lbs) stole my miniature pinscher’s (Barli; 15 lbs) favourite toy and refuses to present it again. She gained’t play with it except Barli is trying instantly at her however will get tremendous spiteful if Barli tries to grab it again. I’ve given it again to Barli a couple of instances however Lil Bit finds a strategy to get it once more.
Observe: Lil Bit has an nearly an identical toy simply in a special shade.
The cat desperately desires to play with the canine. The canine, who performed with our final cat like finest pals, completely refuses to have something to do along with her.
It makes me unhappy, I really feel unhealthy for each of them.
