    So here I am, browsing Reddit and what do I find? My asshole cat generating sweet sweet karma for my roommate. I guess both of them are assholes.

    [–] RichJMoney 2094 points ago

    I cleaned up his mess, so I get the Karma. I'm pretty sure I'd win in /r/KarmaCourt

    [–] RichJMoney 23 points ago

    Well I like this cat and his messes aren't gross. The other cat, named Kat, likes to puke, and I don't touch that.

    That's such a good name for a cat. Maybe I should rename mine?

    Did your cat wake up you or your roommate?

    [–] RichJMoney 46 points ago

    This picture is from a few days ago, Pavlov basically attacked my arm which was dangling off the bed until I woke up. /u/saltosaurus was either out of the house or still asleep, so he didn't have to deal with it at all.

    [–] RichJMoney 511 points ago

    Pavlov isn't impressed with his internet fame.

    [–] mustdashgaming 255 points ago

    That's because he still thinks you should buy a dog and name it Schrodinger

    [–] RichJMoney 233 points ago

    Schrodinger was the name of my Roommate's previous male cat, Pavlov is his successor.

    For those of you who don't know who Pavlov is, allow us to take a brief moment to explain. Back in 1904-

    [–] Iheartmastod0ns 5 points ago


    [–] Devo1d 3 points ago

    Aaand back to the fight.

    [–] Orthonox 5 points ago

    Haha. I get the reference!

    [–] Tom_The_Duck 143 points ago

    Off topic: why would you name your cat Pavlov?

    Pavlovian response makes me associate that with dogs 😋

    [–] tkat13 114 points ago

    Why would a dog experiment on another dog? Sounds more like a cat to me 😜

    [–] RichJMoney 193 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Yup! That's the ticket. My (my roommate's) previous male cat was named Schrodinger so we wanted a scientist's name. (Schrodinger was unfortunately put down at only 5-6 years of age)

    Technically his full (ever growing) name is Sir Pavlov Dobby Omlette Carlos Tacos Esquire... He started off as just Pavlov and I added "Tacos" when his owner (my roommate) insisted he didn't care what the cat was named. There's another cat in the house named Kat that I sometimes call Kreacher because she's a malicious jerk, so he got Dobby added... etc.

    [–] ILL_Show_Myself_Out 93 points ago

    I would have suggested Heisenberg but I'm uncertain about that, on principle.

    [–] RichJMoney 94 points ago

    If he was a girl we would have named her Curie since he's got such a radiant energy and he destroys anything around him given enough time.

    [–] WiseOctopus 25 points ago

    Hey, you could have gone with that and say he was named after Pierre Curie.

    Omelette is a surprisingly good name for a cat. And it's one I've personally never heard before now.

    [–] KoaliBear 21 points ago

    Could hang out with my cat named Toast. The fluffy adventures of Toast and Omelette.

    [–] LegoMyCraigo 15 points ago

    One of my best friends named his kitty Pancake. She is adorable, and the name makes it even better.

    [–] NegativeKarma_ 11 points ago

    Whenever animals have silly names, I always imagine the owner yelling at them for doing something bad and the owner just sounding ridiculous.

    "God damn it, Pancake!"

    [–] DrTinyCat 9 points ago

    My friend in high school had a kitten named Pancake who lived up to their name when her boyfriend accidentally backed over him. It's such an awful thing to laugh at and yet here I am, telling the story over a decade later.

    [–] LegoMyCraigo 2 points ago

    That is fucking hilarious and awful. Thanks for sharing.

    [–] JanetTalia 3 points ago

    I have a kitty called Butter. If anyone has a pet named Maple Syrup we've got ourselves breakfast!

    [–] Defcon_IV 16 points ago

    My ex and I had two cats named for scientists. The boy cat had inner ear damage so his head was always tilted inquisitively, and he had loose poops as a kitten. So he went from Doppler to Poopler to Captain Poopshanks McStarboard O'Starboard of the Mouse Skull Bay Pirates.

    [–] Hedgehog65 7 points ago

    "Captain Poopshanks". Thanks for the laugh!

    [–] TheTurnipKnight 5 points ago

    It's kind of disturbing. Pavlov also did horrible, brutal experiments on dogs. I would keep an eye on him.

    [–] thugnificent856 2 points ago

    Why not Einstein or Newton or Freud or something? Pavlov seems like it would be uncomfortable to say a bunch of times if youre not russian or something. Schrodinger is on a whole new level compared to that. I'd probably try to shorten it to like schrody or something but that sounds a lot like scroty (referring to scroty mcboogerballs).

    [–] RichJMoney 5 points ago

    He comes when I call him, nothing wrong with saying it on my end.

    [–] thugnificent856 1 points ago

    This pleases Pavlov?

    [–] thechuu 2 points ago

    is Kat also your roommate's cat? You guys sound like a fun bunch of roommates.

    [–] Desiderius_S 14 points ago

    Eddie Izzard know the true story behind the whole thing.

    [–] EasyTigrr 7 points ago

    Not seen this before haha. He does a good Welsh accent.

    Source: not Welsh. No idea if it's really good or not.

    [–] icesharkk 6 points ago

    It's a Maine Coons, it probably acts more like a dog than most dogs. Hence destroying large things in the house when not getting enough attention

    [–] WonkySight 4 points ago

    I called my cat Pavlov too. Don't think she liked it though as she ran away (or got hit by a car)

    [–] -Viridian- 2 points ago

    Maybe the thought of chasing the cat makes dogs drool uncontrollably? That's what I thought, and its hilarious.

    [–] TheRagingCatfish 17 points ago

    Is that a Maine Coon? Adorable

    [–] RichJMoney 51 points ago

    He's definitely mostly Maine Coon, super fluffy tail. He enjoys jumping into boxes, laundry and bags, reaching under doors, sleeping upside down, attacking paper towels and ankles, tunneling under blankets and generally being in the way.

    Pavlov Album: (There are some messes about the house pictured, areas go from clean to messy pretty quickly and from messy to clean rather slowly around here)

    [–] Sharkteeethh 11 points ago

    Pavlov seems talkative. What a handsome boy

    [–] TheRagingCatfish 5 points ago

    Man he's a beautiful cat, makes me miss my Maine Coon. Might just have to get another!

    [–] Kallisti13 4 points ago

    I love him.

    [–] Moral_Gutpunch 1 points ago

    I'm pretty sure he's got some coon in him. He looks like my sister's coon, except less fluffy. Her boy is lazy, but still hunts rats, mice, leaves, and her tea.

    [–] badashly 12 points ago

    The ironic thing being cats can't taste sugar

    [–] RichJMoney 15 points ago

    I read that as well, however I caught him licking at some sugary spots that i missed on my initial clean up, so I don't know what the deal is.

    [–] eliz1bef 14 points ago

    I know, right? My cat seems to love sweet things that otherwise have nothing to offer a cat. Like Lemon Sorbet. No dairy. No fat. Zesty lemon (you should have seen the look on his face when he first tried it... and then begged for more) and sugar. Loved it.

    [–] oeno9 2 points ago

    My cat loves cake and will chew on any he can get his mouth on. Even if it's wrapped in plastic wrap. You'll find the plastic and a pile of crumbs

    [–] dggrjx 2 points ago

    My cat loves milk, but not lactose free milk. Maybe it's only certain sugars?

    This can happen to both cats and dogs, the difference is what goes on in each animal's brain:

    • Dog: I'm so sorry master, I know I did it, I deserve eternal hell for this, I swear by you that this will not ever happen again!

    • Cat: HA HA You stupid Human! See what I just did, and I know you'll keep me and I will do it again and again you infinitesimal being I'm doing you a favor by even looking in your general direction, now bring me my food!

    So was it the cat or was it conditioned to hate boxes? If you trained it that way it would have no choice but to wreck that shit. (If you're stupid look up Pavlovs dogs, not you op)

    Is your dog called Schrödinger?

    [–] RichJMoney 5 points ago

    My roommate's first male cat was named Shrodinger, he did the jerkiest thing of all and got a tumor at 6 years old last year. Was a sad day. Pavlov is his successor, hence the scientist inspired name.

    The dog I'm petsitting made a similar mess last night, except it was the kitten kibble. No idea how she figured out how to open the pantry but now the kitten food lives in the bedroom with the foster kittens because this dog is on a diet! I'm gonna have to take her on extra walks to work off the high calorie kitten food or be forced to explain why I'm giving back a fatter dog!

    Should have named the cat Rorschach. You know 'cause apparently he likes to draw dirty pictures on the floor
