Lots.  My youngest shreds any paper products she finds.  We can’t leave a roll of toilet paper on the hook or she’ll shred it to pieces.  Same with paper towels and used paper products in the trash.  My middle cat likes to jump up on counter tops, sit in the sink, and she pulls garbage out of our large trash can in the kitchen.  She has an annoying habit of waking me up, she’ll stick her paw underneath my bedroom door and curl it upwards and start pulling back and forth on the door (trying to open it).  She used to jump up on our 8 ft hutch via the 4 foot deep freezer, but we put our dutch oven where she jumped up on it.  My oldest cat will intentionally miss the litterbox if she’s pissed off which is often it seems.

Yes! My mastiff comes and shoves his head under my arm and lays it on my lap ( he swears his 170 pounder is a lap dog ) and will literally knock my hands off the keyboard and keep doing it until I pet him. Here he is so you get an idea of how ridiculous he is.

My dog never wants to play with me unless I’m doing something important, like school work. Then, he unplugs my laptop or jumps up in my lap. (My dog also weighs 70 pounds at 9 months old).He also has an obsession with plastic (as in my cups, blinds, the ends of my silverware) and also with paper. He and my cat work together. My cat will knock my toilet paper off the stand and my dog will eat it. They do the same with mail, or my papers…

Your cat also sounds a lot like mine…

My border collie has become obsessed with shocking people. He will roll around on the couch, then sneak up on you, and shock your arm, feet, or knees. If Fiance and I are both on the couch he will go back and forth between us. Stinking kid!

My cat does a lot of annoying things, but my “favorite” is when he hops in the fridge and lays down.

πŸ™‚ Ha. Where to start? My hound-mix has this crazy bark-howl-thing she’ll do when she hears something go bump in the night. Always scares the bejeezus out of me! And she likes to chew…a lot. She’ll go through a rawhide bone in less than a day, which is why she only gets them on special occasions.

My little one (okay, he’s 30 lbs, but he’s littlest) will come while I’m laying down and lay across my stomach. He looks like superdog.

But for real, how am I supposed to stay mad at these faces?!?! Gah. I’m a sucker. πŸ™‚

@indyJEEP:  Lol @ your parrots.  Yeah, I don’t understand the obsession with paper products, she’ll just shred it and she acts so innocent and timid compared to the other two but she destroys ENTIRE NEW rolls of toilet paper.  Alas, my guests will have to be warned that the t.p. is under the sink in the cabinet.

In July Fiance and I got a kitten we named Saydee.  She is my FIRST ever pet so I’m not sure if this is “normal” for cats, but Saydee gives herself a bath almost every hour!!

When she goes to the litter box, she gives herself a bath.  When she’s about to fall asleep on the couch, she gives herself a bath.  When she’s about to eat, or about to fall asleep for the night, she gives herself a bath.  I think she might be germaphobic!!

It’s only annoying because she takes forever! And makes these licking sounds. lol.  But I still love her.
