Having a pet is basically like having a full-time job. Whether you're a dog mom or a cat dad, keeping track of these naughty but adorable pets takes up a huge chunk of your time. But while you might be able to stop your dog from chewing your shoes or your cat from scratching your couch, you can't watch your pets all the time. And these funny photos were taken at the exact moment the owners of these pets took their eyes off them. Yes, food was involved!
As Cold as Ice
Although we wish the whole world was pet-friendly, there are some stores around the globe that don't allow dogs. And while this owner didn't normally like to leave her dog in the car unattended, she knew she was only going to be two minutes. So, she popped open the window, turned on the radio, and ran her errand quicker than she'd ever run before. But any dog mom will know that it only takes two minutes for carnage to ensue.
While this dog mom thought she did everything right to keep her dog comfortable, she made one grave error: she left her full large icy in the cup holder! And we'll give you two guesses who emptied it...
Just a Little Lick
It's a common misconception that the lives of dog moms revolve around their dogs. Sure, most dogs make every decision with their dog in mind and like to be with them 24 hours a day, but sometimes they decide to take some "me time" too. And it seems as though this dog mom wanted to bake a delicious cake to give her a break from picking up poop and scratching bellies.
But while she wanted to take a break, we guess her dog didn't want her to. Not when there was cake involved, anyway! But this is a super cute photo, so she probably didn't mind too much.
Peanut Butter Bliss
You've heard of utter bliss, but have you ever heard of peanut butter bliss? If you're not quite sure what that is, just look at this big guy! Someone in his house accidentally left the peanut butter on the counter, and while there were strict rules under this roof to keep the peanut butter out of paw's reach, it obviously slipped their mind on this occasion. We don't think this guy minds, though.
We can't tell if this dog was so content he couldn't help but close his eyes and enjoy the moment or whether he'd eaten so much peanut butter he'd fallen asleep. Whatever the case, he's happy.
Like Butter (Chicken) Wouldn't Melt
Cat moms can probably relate to this one. After all, cats are extremely nimble and sneaky creatures. And while you can try your hardest to keep track of your cat at all times, they somehow always manage to sneak into places they're not allowed to be and eat the food they're not allowed to eat. You know, like a whole pot of butter chicken curry that was sitting on the stovetop!
And while there's always a chance that this catnapper was framed, the orange paws and the guilty look on his face (which, coincidentally, is also covered in curry) seem to suggest otherwise.
That's a Funny Looking Dog
Although pets can brighten your day and put a smile on your face, they can also cause you more stress than you ever thought you could feel. And we have a feeling that this cat mom is at the end of her tether! Especially as she'd already moved the dog food around the kitchen so many times, in the hope that she'd finally be able to stop her cat from eating it.
Of course, this photo is proof that it didn't happen. No matter what cupboard she puts the dog food in or how high up in the air she tries to hide it, this cat will always find it.
The Cat That Got the Cream
You've probably heard of the cat that got the cream, but have you ever heard of the cat that got the Greek-style yogurt? This cat mom hasn't just heard of this cat... she has to live with it! And judging by the look on her face, this isn't the first time she's had to pull her cat's face out of the yogurt pot. But at least this cat looks pretty pleased with itself.
With a face that cute, it's probably hard to be annoyed with this cat. And considering the yogurt pot was already compromised, we hope she just gave in and let the cat have the rest!
The Ultimate Taste-Tester
If you're thinking about getting your first pet, you first need to understand something. Even if you love food, you need to realize that you're never going to eat in peace ever again. Whether you become a dog mom or a cat mom, every meal you eat from this day forth will be a battle. And this funny photo is proof of what we're talking about. Just look at that long tongue!
This dog obviously thinks he's the ultimate taste-tester and just wants to make sure that its owner is going to like their plate of food before they got started. There's nothing worse than food regret, after all.
A Golden With the Goldens
Anyone who has a golden retriever will know that this isn't a random name someone decided to give them. Golden retrievers are retrievers by nature, and this funny photo shows an adorable pooch in the midst of a pantry run. According to its dog mom, this little guy always heads off to the pantry on his own and brings back something with this adorable look on his face. And on this occasion, he came back with the goldens!
Although that pleading face seems to suggest that he wants some of the golden-seeded bread for himself, we have a feeling that his dog mom probably swapped it out for some kibble instead. But at least he tried.
Almost Got Away With It
Although dogs love their owners more than anything, they do like to live their own lives, too. And this butter-loving dog decided to put in motion a plan she had been working on for weeks. In the dead of night, she snuck into the kitchen, grabbed a stick of butter, and hid it in her bed! And she would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for her pesky dog mom.
Judging by that sassy I-don't-want-to-talk-to-you-traitor stance, she's not impressed that she had to give up her butter stash. And we don't blame her, really. The salted kind is the best kind.
Anyone who has a cat will know that these pets can be pretty petty and passive-aggressive. And this cat mom knows this better than anyone else. No, this isn't just a funny photo reel of weirdly shaped bagels. This is a photo reel that shows what happens when cats get mad when their owners don't get home in time for dinner. And on this occasion, this cat got her own back by taking tiny bites out of every single bagel in a pack.
Yes, this cat managed to rip open the closed packet and bite every single bagel in there. And while we're sure its owners were a little mad, we can't help but be a little impressed, too.
A Horse in the House
Although cats and dogs are common pets that many people have in their homes, it's fair to say that it's rare to come across someone who has a mini-horse. And while this horse mom kept her beloved horse out in the yard, that didn't stop this naughty little thing from making itself at home when the front door was left open. Not only did it give itself free rein of the house, but it also stole a banana!
While we love the cheekiness of this horse, what we love the most is how the size of the banana shows just how small the mini-horse really is. Have you ever seen anything cuter?
A Noodle Eating a Noodle
Have you ever seen an animal that looks this much like a noodle before? No, we thought not. With their long bodies and their slender limbs, ferrets are as noodle-y as you can get, which is what makes this funny photo even more hilarious. After all, it's not every day you come across a noodle eating a noodle. But they do say that you are what you eat, so we guess that's true.
Judging by the look on this ferret's face, it doesn't regret a thing. And we don't blame him for stealing the noodles, either. If you're a noodle, you must eat a noodle.
A Cute Cup of Joe
Hands up if you can't start your day without your morning cup of Joe? If you've got your hands in the air and you're waving them in the air like you're on a serious caffeine high, then you're not alone. We guess humans aren't the only ones who struggle to go about their day without a little caffeine boost because it seems as though this little kitty needed his morning cup of coffee, too.
We don't know what's cuter: the fact that this kitten is so small and tiny, or the fact that it has its little paws around the straw and is drinking it like a human. So, let's say it's a tie.
A Stone Cold Criminal
Considering most cats spend most of their lives outside roaming the streets, we wouldn't be surprised if some cats were actually cat burglars. And we can't help but think that this funny photo is proof of that. This photo was taken by a new cat mom just 24 hours after she adopted the stray from the streets. But after living life on the streets, this little kitty was used to stealing food.
So, it was only a matter of hours before it was back on its old tricks, stealing her son's lunch! And it looks as though this kitty has a very tight grip on that sandwich, too.
Quality Check Complete
Let's be honest; there's nothing worse than buying a pack of donuts and then realizing that most of them taste like they've been sitting on the shelf for a month. And while it's normally humans who find that out for themselves, it seems as though this cat took it upon itself to complete a quality check before its cat mom got home. And it looks pretty proud of itself, too.
We have a feeling that its cat mom wasn't too impressed to find that every single one of their donuts had a bite taken out of it, but a cat's work is never done!
Falling Asleep on the Job
Being a professional cat napper is a full-time job, and it can take its toll on kitties sometimes. Don't believe us? Just look at this funny photo! This cat mom left her food unattended for all of two minutes when her pet snuck up on her pasta and claimed it for himself. But we guess being a little thief is tiring because in that two minutes, this cat also managed to fall fast asleep.
While we're sure this cat mom was a little annoyed that her pasta had been compromised, we have a feeling that she probably forgave him. After all, he just looks so cute!
A Clever Little Kitty
Does anyone else think that cats are often overlooked? Many people think that cats are just normal pets, but these guys are sneaky - and they're actually very intelligent when they need to be. Just look at this girl! She could smell the cheese, but she could also tell that it was a little too high for her to jump. So, she used her brains and realized that the drawer handles would make the perfect ladder!
And she was right, wasn't she? The drawer handles do make the perfect ladder! And before too long, her intelligence was celebrated with some delicious slices of cheese. Her cat mom didn't realize until later, though.
A Real-Life Ratatouille
Have you ever wondered how the rat from Ratatouille got his start in life? Well, we think this funny photo may give us a few clues. After all, this rat was caught red-handed stealing noodles from someone's kitchen, and while we want to be mad, we can't help but think that he looks pretty cute. But who's to say he was stealing them, anyway? Maybe he was just taste-testing them.
The humans in this house clearly made their noodles the wrong way, which is why this rat felt as though he had to step in and save the dish from disaster.
Time to Pay the Cheese Tax
If you have a pet, you'll probably already be aware of the cheese tax. This rule states that when a human eats some cheese, they must pay the cheese tax and give their pet a little portion of their cheese. It's very important that this tax law is obeyed - otherwise, the big boss will come out to sort them out. And here we have the big boss, live and in the flesh.
While this big boss looks as though he's politely asking for some cheese, he's actually embarking on a terrifying mission to scare and torment the human. And the human has no choice in the matter.
He Regrets Nothing
There's nothing better than Taco Tuesday, right? And it seems as though this cat knows that, too. But this pet felt like it was pretty unfair that he wasn't invited to attend Taco Tuesday, considering he lives in the same house and provides dead birds on the doorstep on a regular basis. So, he decided to simply invite himself and grab the slice of beef cheek from the kitchen counter.
Unfortunately, this cat dad caught him in the act before he could truly gobble down the cheek. But judging by the look on this cat's face, it doesn't look like he regrets anything.
The Pet With a Pet
Have you ever noticed that some pets like to have pets of their own? Maybe they have a soft toy that they love more than anything that they carry around in their mouths all day, every day, or maybe they find a butterfly on a walk that they let perch on their nose. Well, it seems as though this food thief found his pet in the form of a stale baguette his dog mom was saving to make breadcrumbs.
Instead of stealing the bread for himself, this dog has been carrying around and protecting his baguette for the last three days. And he just looks so proud of it!
A Pure Bread
You've heard of a pure breed dog, but have you ever heard of a pure bread dog? Well, let us be the first to introduce you to one! The dog mom behind the camera spent a full day baking Challah bread for her friends and family, only to have it stolen by her adorable pooch. But how could you blame him for doing such a thing? We bet it smelled delicious.
Plus, he's a pure bread dog! A pure bread dog must have bread in his mouth every single moment of every single day. And so that's exactly what he did.
Just a Mate With Some Coffee Mate
It seems as though humans aren't the only ones who can't start their day without a big coffee filled to the brim with Coffee-Mate. Judging by the closed eyes and the tired look on this Great Dane's face, he needed it, too! So, instead of waiting around for his dog mom to get out of bed and make him a coffee, he decided to take matters into his own hands and just drink from the bottle instead.
He looks very pleased with himself, too. Or maybe that's just the caffeine hitting his system. Either way, this dog will be bouncing off the walls in no time at all.
A Steak Belly
Cat moms love the weirdest things about their cats, from the smell of their paws to the curl of their tail. But we're going to go ahead and assume that this cat's mom just can't get enough of her cat's adorable round belly - and we can't blame her. This cat is one of the cutest pets we've ever seen, but there's no doubt about the fact that this funny photo shows why its belly is so round.
This is the belly of a cat who has stolen many leftover steaks in the past. But in this cat's defense, why is the human leaving leftover steak in the first place?
Dressing for Dinner
You probably don't need us to tell you that pets love food. But do you ever feel a little sorry for them? After all, most pets have to have the same dinner every single night, while their humans try something new each day. Well, it seems as though this cat doesn't think that's fair, either. That's why they try to steal their cat mom's food every night, no matter what's for dinner.
And while we'd love to see this cat stealing some noodles or a slice of pizza, there's something about this pasta that's cuter than anything else we've seen. It looks like a little bow tie!
Paws Me the Pizza
We're going to go ahead and assume that you love the smell of pizza. After all, who doesn't? But what you might not have realized is cats have an even better sense of smell than humans, which means that the pizza we smell smells even more delicious to cats. So, how can you expect them to stay away and not attempt to steal a slice? It's probably too good of an opportunity to pass up.
Although this cat knew that it wasn't supposed to eat the pizza, that didn't stop it from giving it a good go. Margaret Thatcher doesn't look too impressed with the cat's attempts, though.
Stealer of Hearts
This is supposed to be a funny photo summing up the cheekiness of dogs, but we're not seeing that at all. Instead, we're seeing a good boy who loves a healthy diet. And, of course, that has nothing to do with those hypnotizing eyes that could steal hearts and change minds. No, we just happen to appreciate the fact that this little rebel is stealing lettuce leaves. We love a health-conscious doggo.
Sure, we know the fact that this dog is stealing its dog mom's food probably isn't ideal, but we're going to give him a pass. Again, it's nothing to do with those hyponotizing eyes.
The Pizza Thief
Judging by the fact that there are so many pizza stealers on this list, we're going to go ahead and assume that the smell of pizza is just too enticing for pets. And we totally get it. It's too enticing for humans, too, which is why we have to stop ourselves from ordering pizza for every meal. But we guess the difference between humans and dogs is the fact that we pay for our pizza, while dogs don't!
Of course, dogs probably shouldn't eat pizza because it's often topped with food that could be toxic or give them a funny tummy, but we hope this dog mom let him have a few minutes of smelling time at least.
A Sneak Attack
Dogs are the masters of sneak attacks. And while they love to make a noise when they want you to throw a ball or give them a slice of cheese, they'll quite happily become quiet as a mouse when they're doing something they shouldn't. You know, like sneaking into the pantry and sticking their noses and mouths into an open bag of raw flour. And this funny photo shows the end result of that sneak attack.
Of course, it's important to note that dogs eating raw flour is very dangerous and a recipe for choking, but it seems as though this dog mom caught the sneak attack at the right time.
He Knows Where You Sleep
Any cat moms out there will know that cats often live in their own world. Sure, they might live in your home and eat your food, but they're out to survive on their own - and they will do anything they want, regardless of how you feel about it. And this funny photo shows that independence in all of its glory! When this cat smelled some tomato sauce boiling on the stove, he decided to investigate.
It didn't take long for him to be stopped in his tracks, but this facial expression proves that he wasn't too happy about it. In fact, it looks as though he's going to seek major revenge.
Not a Morsel of Remorse
This is a PSA for all cat moms out there: never leave a cooked rotisserie chicken out on the counter when you have a cat in the house. You can almost guarantee that your cat is going to steal the whole thing - unless they're caught in the act after one bite. But that's just because this cat mom was obviously on her toes, and realized what she'd done just moments after she left the kitchen.
You have to admire the confidence of these pets. But more than anything, we thank them for these hilariously funny photos that keep us entertained on a very regular basis.
What do you feed your pets? Well, there are so many different opinions when it comes to what you should feed animals - especially cats. And while this cat mom was told to put her car on a raw meat diet, it didn't take long for the cat to become a carb-loving criminal going in search of the carbs that were so rudely taken from its diet. And the bagels had no hope.
Not only did this kitty pull the bagels out of the cupboard in the first place, but it then proceeded to rip open the packet and devour the contents inside!
Look at That Smile
Is there anything better than seeing your pet smile up at you? No, we thought not. But take a longer look at this funny photo. Although it may look as though this pooch is smiling adoringly at its owner, that's not a smile at all. Instead, it's a cheeseburger! This little criminal managed to steal a cheeseburger from the kitchen counter, and no matter how hard she tried, his dog mom just couldn't get it back.
We think it's time this dog mom said goodbye to the cheeseburger. There's no way she's getting that back. The cheeseburger belongs to the dog, now, and that's how it was always meant to be.
You probably don't need us to tell you that rats generally have a bad reputation. Many see them as dirty vermin, but there are many pet owners out there who see them for what they really are: cheeky and intelligent animals who have heaps of personality. And if you don't believe us, just look at this funny photo! This rat managed to sneak a Pringle and loved taking teeny chomps out of it.
There's something about those tiny hands that won us over, as we can't help but think that this is one of the most adorable photos we've ever seen. So, maybe it's time to get a pet rat?
The Sleep Sniper
Anyone who says that pets aren't part of the family is lying. After all, pets have bags of personality - even when that personality is more annoying than cute! This cat mom found that out for herself when her cat pretended he was sleeping and then slowly crawled towards the food to steal it. And just look at that stretch! This cat knew exactly what he was doing, and he almost got away with it.
While we're impressed with this sneaky sniper attack, we're more impressed by the fact that this cat wants to eat the Brussels sprouts off its mom's plate. Who likes Brussels sprouts, anyway?
The Guilty Look
If you're a dog mom, you're probably familiar with the look on this dog's face. They normally pull this look after they've pulled out the stuffing from your favorite cushion, chewed up your laces, or eaten something they know they shouldn't. And on this occasion, this dog ate a whole stack of Kraft singles while her dog mom was in the shower. She must have inhaled them to eat them so quickly!
While we're impressed by the speed at which this dog ate so many cheese slices, let's all just have a moment of silence for this dog mom and the diarrhea this dog is going to have.
Quiet as a Mouse
If there are any cocker spaniel dog moms out there, you'll know that cocker spaniels are in a world of their own. They're constantly on level 100 on the crazy scale, and they do what they want when they want! Yes, this includes heading to the pantry and trying to steal as much food as they can. And while this 15-year-old cocker spaniel is now deaf, that didn't stop it from trying its luck.
The only problem is that this cocker spaniel didn't realize that chip packets probably aren't the best things to pick up when you're trying to be as quiet as a mouse. But who cares?
Everyone, meet Harold. Harold, meet everyone. The dog mom of this little rascal wants everyone to know that Harold likes to stick his face into pasta jars and lick out the contents. And while we have to agree that pasta sauce is absolutely delicious, his dog mom just can't take it any longer. That's why she also wants us all to know that Harold is now the reason she closes jars of pasta sauce when she recycles them.
Of course, we'd argue that you should always clean out jars of pasta sauce before you recycle them, anyway. But more than anything we just want to make sure that Harold is ok in his pasta-sauce-less state.
The Art Vs the Artist
Pet parents are difficult for regular parents. While human parents know that they can leave food out on a high countertop without their toddler reaching up to grab it, the same can't be said for pet parents. Cats are especially mobile and are able to reach anything they could possibly want to. And on this occasion, it seemed as though this cat really wanted to reach the dessert that was sitting on the counter.
This cat even managed to take a bite before its cat mom came to the dessert's rescue! But when you look as cute as this cat, I can't imagine they were punished for too long.
Dogs add so much happiness and light to your life, but they can also add so much stress and anguish. And while this dog mom probably hoped to have a very happy birthday with her birthday cake and candles, that happiness soon turned into despair when the dog got involved and decided it wanted to have a slice of the cake, too. Of course, we get that it probably felt left out.
But we all know that chocolate is bad for dogs, right? So, let's just hope that this dog didn't have too much of an upset stomach after this little birthday present.
