23 Stupid Pets You Can’t Help But Love

Pets bring a bunch of joy into our lives – that’s why we keep them around. They listen to us when we’re upset and crying over life’s difficulties and comfort us when we need them to. They’ll always be around to cheer us up when we need and all they ask from us is our undying love and affection.

So, we love them, feed them, give them shelter and forgive them when they’re being just a tad bit stupid. After all, we all make mistakes and some times our pets can make quite a few before they realize what they’re doing wrong. If we could speak the same language with our pets, it’d be a lot different. But we don’t, so it’s just a guessing game whenever they do something stupid and you’re left trying to decipher why they’re that dumb.

At least they’re cute, right? These idiotic tendencies can be forgiven since they’ll love us unconditionally, even when we we’re upset with them. I definitely still forgive my cat for hanging out at the neighbor’s porch all the time now. We only really see each other when she wants to be fed and it’s a mutual agreement that we can both agree upon. She is a little dumb and doesn’t realize when I’ve re-opened the doggy door after I’ve trapped her inside for a bit, though (it’s the only way I can get her to hang out with me nowadays, forgive me).

These 23 pets are forgivably stupid:


My cat won’t use the litter box. He poops in the potted plants around the house. But not the real ones. He only poops in the fake plants. And that’s why his name is Dipsh*t.


I had a farm cat when I was a teenager that loved to climb up and sit on the roof. Problem was, he had the habit of rolling over for a tummy rub whenever he saw a person. So it was a distressingly common occurrence to walk near the house and have him roll right off the roof. You’d think after the first three times he’d have learned, but no. He lived a long life despite himself.


My dog likes likes to play fetch with tiny objects. She’s brought me a blade of grass, a tiny stone, blossom, a seed… stuff so small that it just sticks to her tongue and she has to lick you a few times to get it to stick to your leg. Then she just nudges it until you attempt to throw it.


I have a six year old cat that still doesn’t know how doors work. When you open the door to let her out, she runs behind it and tries to go through the crack by the hinges. She’ll stand there meowing at you like “I can’t fit through here…do something”
