Aren’t dogs and the internet just the perfect combination? If you don’t laugh at a few of the following funny dog memes then you are either dead or a cat. Or a dead cat.
The Mathematician Dog Meme
When it comes to owning a pet, most of us are happy with having a pack of fur full of heart and soul that barks, but is always ready to play and take us outside for the morning walk, or some creature whose favorite time of the year is messing around with our Christmas tree. Besides dogs and cats, another category of exotic people host in their homes some reptilian, a monkey perhaps, fish or birds. The even more exotic people who have the highest “coolness” standards go for tigers, lions, or everything else that can kill you in your sleep, maybe to prove that they’re made of iron backbones and nerves of steel. However, this world knows such animal variety, you often stumble upon entire lists of articles showing you animals you didn’t even know they existed, or creatures which mankind showed little attention because these animals knew where and how to hide.
This time we will travel the world, inspired by such wild beasts which became very popular in the last years and look at them from the pet perspective. Utopian approach, of course, as we would never capture and hold hostage creatures that are meant to roam free in their natural habitat. So this is more like an exercise of imagination. But let’s see together 5 strange animals you would love to have as pets, not only because they are funny looking, but some of them can be a real help around the house.
This is more of a dog than a real raccoon, but the resemblance is spectacular. Imagine having friends and family members come visit you to see your new pet canid and see this beauty lying on the couch, barking friendly and wave its tail. This furry, magnificent creature lives in East Asia and if you own a house with a garden, you’re bound to ask your new dog to come down from that tree, because the Tanuki are said to be very good climbers. Imagine the family cat’s face when it sees this glorious tree – climbing animal.
Admit it, this is cuteness overload and among all the strange animals you would love to have as pets, this one surely takes the cake. It is a rodent, however, originating from parts of Argentina, so beware keeping it in the house if you don’t want to refurbish your furniture or mourn your house plants. It somehow looks like a rabbit, but is kinda built like a kangaroo, with his hind limbs stronger and more muscular than the front ones. We don’t know if it kicks like a kangaroo, but that face is priceless and kids would love it.
Now this is not the strangest animal on the planet, granted, but come on, look at the size of this rabbit! It can serve as a guard dog, couch for the kids, pony for the little kids, nightmare for the cat and garden tool for the entire family. Imagine how this bundle of joy chews on everything, as it has to chew forever, and think about a career in the carpentry department. Some people would be afraid of it, as if you bother this one bad enough to jump at your throat, you’re history, but it seems to make a good family companion.
It’s a rat that resembles a rabbit whose hind limbs look like those of a kangaroo. So basically this little adorable creature is a rodent, although we don’t know exactly if it is more a rabbit than a rat or the other way around. This is the perfect pet: eats plants and sometimes small insects, if happen to come across them, are so tiny you can train them to sleep on your pillow at night and have the cutest faces ever. Looking at them jump could be even funnier than the last rave party you attended.
This has got to be one of the most awesome strange animals you would love to have as pets. This one is a keeper. Now imagine having both a giraffe and a gazelle roaming around your property (you’d probably have to bring in a few of its friends too, so it doesn’t feel lonely). Its greatest feature, besides that head and face, is that it can stand perfectly vertical on his hind legs to reach the high bushes, twigs and trees. If you are a farmer or an orchard man, imagine how great would be to have the Gerenunk give you a hand at work by picking up the ripe fruit from the tops. After a hard day’s work, you two could share giraffe jokes and play some sick mind – tricks to the dog.
We know you want more, as there are more than these five strange animals you would love to have as pets, and if you’re thinking Red Panda, an Angora Rabbit or a Sunda Colugo, you are right, these creatures are awesome too and they deserve to be known. If you have some strange pets of your own, do share!
Now every year it is the same thing for us when we’re getting ready to welcome the Christmas holidays’ spirit: we like to have our family and friends around, to get our loved ones nice, meaningful gifts, to cook the best dishes possible, to enjoy a few days off and relax after a year’s hard work. Together with us, our pets get some special treatment too. Except for cats. There are some moments in a cat’s Christmas Holiday that really questions both our mental sanity and theirs.
Why do we say that? Well, because we also developed a less “traditional” fashion, that of decorating not only the trees, the house, the office and practically everything that is suitable to bear some Christmas lights and some decorations on, but it seems we have an almost sadistic pleasure of tormenting our pets during the holidays, the complaints that Grumpy Cat has made its voice heard in all corners of the Internet, and it usually doesn’t say pretty things (but on the contrary, quite offensive). We’re not sure people truly understand the cats’ displeasure with their owners’ fascination to ridicule them and force their hand to seek vengeance and use curse words after, but to show our appreciation towards these very smart pets, we will present you with ten moments in a cat’s Christmas holiday that should make you think twice before pulling some prank on them.
They don’t seem too happy with us playing too many Christmas songs too loud. Or they just hate Christmas altogether. Grumpy may have more details for you in this regard
It’s a tradition in all houses to welcome the holidays in a clean body, with a clean spirit. But let’s face it, some cats really hate you for even thinking to give them a necessary bath, especially during these awful times, when they are stressed enough already.
You have to admit the cats have a point. Every year is the same and every year you don’t learn anything and you keep making the same mistakes over and over again.
And yet, they are kind creatures who will not ruin your holidays until you push them to. So another warning is always issued before they really get into action…
Still not getting it? Then it’s time for some serious, hard-way lessons. And a come back that you should have been aware of!
Don’t for a second believe their desperate cries for help when you catch them red handed…
Of course the little one is sorry and of course it ended up there by a complete unimaginable awful accident that even Newton or Einstein couldn’t explain. Of course.
Trust us when they say this to you, all cats think in the same way…
Let them outside the house!
Yeah, the problem is that some of them seem to like it enough to mistake it for some mood enhancer that will actually make them more… flexible to the Christmas spirit and more willing to give you a chance and not ruin it completely for you…
when all it needs are some moments of peace and quiet. And admit it, after all these emotions you’ve been through, you kinda need the same thing…
Now we hope you understood a few things about how you should spend the season together with your cat so you could avoid some of the worst moments in a cat’s Christmas holiday and in yours too.
You just can’t ignore cats, can you? I know that I can’t ignore my neighbour’s adorable little moggy when he comes over to my balcony at 5 in the morning to wail and hiss and perform his full range of impressive verbal gymnastics. What other famous cats have we been unable to ignore through history? Quite a few it seems.
