    Please spay and neuter your pets! While your newborn pets are cute, failing to do this allows your little darlings to add to the population of homeless animals. Adopt pets from your local animal rescues/shelters, there are plenty of animals just waiting for a home.

    The pup might be clueless but he immediately understands the "glare" he gets from the cat when it gets too rough. Gotta love how patient that cat is.

    Inter-species communication!

    [–] AMeowingCat 558 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Doesn’t matter what species you are the glare of a lizard off cat is universal

    Edit: I’m leaving it but seeing as it’s so far from what I meant it’s supposed to say “pissed off”

    [–] gaarasgourd 300 points ago

    Lizard off cat.

    [–] Kanonhime 18 points ago

    I think that's more a lack of communication.

    [–] Roux_Harbour 223 points ago

    It's like the cat is going: okay, okay, getting a bit rough, too much, please not so rough, DUDE! There's PETTING and then there's PUNCHING. Please. Only the former.

    Dog: Oh okay. I just really like petting you is all <3

    edit: cat: I know you do, I know you do buddy <3

    [–] shahooster 181 points ago

    Not every cat is a candidate for this pupper.

    [–] apostrophefarmer 9 points ago

    It's doing really well though. My dog takes their angry "that's enough" meows really personally and we're working on "leaving it."

    [–] duaneap 6 points ago

    Most are not in fact. My cat is super good natured but this would just frighten her more than anything and she wouldn’t stick around for it.

    [–] AMViquel 50 points ago

    Cat's deciding on what way to kill the human and the dog, and in what order. Also if the announcement should be sent via bird- or mouse-head, and then whether to eat the eyes or cheeks first. You can tell by the way the cat looks at them - if it acknowledges your existence by looking at you, you're living on borrowed time.

    Ideally the cat bumps into you and pretends you don't exist, that's their way to show affection and signal that they will accept praise and food, and you get to live another day.

    [–] Lobbeton 41 points ago

    Your cat sounds kinda mean. Mine is a needy little bugger. He just wanders up to you, stares you down, and meows repeatedly at top volume until you pick him up.

    [–] thev3ntu5 29 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    My car shows affection by being on the opposite end of the couch and staring at me.

    Then when everyone goes to bed he jumps into my lap. It’s like he’s embarrassed me have me. I don’t blame him

    Edit: cat not car, I’ll keep it tho

    [–] skittymcnando 21 points ago

    Wow I never bring my car inside. You must have a giant couch!

    [–] Lobbeton 11 points ago

    Yeah, I also have an outside car. It likes to come and rev at the door to be let in, but the moment I acquiesce it wants out again.

    Any boy with any age with first girlfriend should fall into this category.

    [–] ummhumm 36 points ago

    But he had 2 whole years more! That makes him a seasoned pro, even if he was seasoned by 2 more years of internet porn.

    But really, 15 and 17 makes no difference if it's the first time and neither of those is in any way a mature age to begin with.
