Sometimes, it feels like pets speak the same language you do.
But what if you could actually, truly understand your pets, and they could understand you? What would you say?
Here are 11 pet owners on what the subject of their conversation would be if they had one hour to tell their pets everything they felt.
1. Sore paw
2. Potty training
4. Eff you
5. Drop the attitude
I'd tell her if she knew it was family or a friend at the door, she did not have to bark. The worst is when I pull up, and she's staring right at me through the garden window, wagging her tail; defensive barking. Like. You see it's me, drop the attitude lady.
6. Very much loved
I'd ask them about their lives before we adopted them from a shelter, what were their old homes like, and how did they end up at the shelter? And then I'd want to make sure that they are happy here and that they know they are loved very much!
7. You were a good boy
My dog just die[d] recently, so I'd tell him how sorry I was for putting him down but that I saw he was in pain and had a good life. Then I'd tell him how much of a good boy he was and that I still get hit with how much I miss him all the time.
9. The dreaded carrier
I have cats who hate being moved in a carrier or leaving the house for any reason whether it's to see the vet or to stay with a friend. So I'd tell my cats that being in the carrier is only temporary and that I will be back soon and that Id never leave them permanently. And also, it's ok to say hi to strangers. They aren't bad people. No need to hide. They just want to pet you and I know you like that so be a good kitty.
10. Health reasons
I'd explain my cat that the reason he doesn't get as much food as he would like and that he only gets low calorie cat food, is because of his health. We are not being mean, but do it out of love.Exactly. You don't have to eat literally everything. And yes, we know Fancy Feast tastes good.
