We love our pets and think they’re the cutest things around.
But occasionally they get into situations that give us a scare.
Whether it’s an awkwardly placed paw or a big, red mess that looks like a bloodbath, these 15 animals no doubt gave their owners a shiver:
1. A spicy little nightmare
Any pet owner that walked in on this scene would likely have a panic attack on the spot. But don’t worry because this kitty hasn’t been hurt. It just got into a whole pack of paprika and was playing around in it. Maybe it was trying to practice for a role in CATatouille.
2. Rows and rows and rows of teeth
Does this dog have a wicked dental plan? Not at all! As it turns out he just got a pine cone stuck in his mouth. But that didn’t stop some of the comments from asking if this dog was related to Cujo.
3. Dial J for Jam
You aren’t looking at the scene of a horrific accident. You’re just looking at a pup that ended up rolling around in some Dragon Fruit juice. The poor pooch must have knocked it off a table and decided to play in the mess. He certainly looks happy with how he scared his owners.
4. Holy Pet
This cat doesn’t seem to mind what looks like a hole in its side. But then you look harder and realize it’s just a well-timed shot of a cat with a strange set of markings. I Gotta admit though, this would make you run to the other side of the pet just to check and make sure.
5. Killer dog
If you saw this dog greeting you in your bed, you might end up walking away. But this dog isn’t covered in blood, it’s just gotten into its owner’s lipstick. Whew, looks like this cute doggo isn’t out for murder after all. Or is it?!
6. Not quite all skin and bones
If you don’t look too hard, we wouldn’t blame you for thinking this was a man-eating dog. With the bone sticking out of the shoe, you might wonder if the local mailman is alright. This is one photo that’ll make you say “Pull my other leg, why don’t ya”.
7. Peek a boo
This cat likes to hide in the most unlikely places. But we’re willing to bet the owner didn’t expect to see it hiding under a car. Not only is this a dangerous spot for most cats, but it’s the perfect ambush point for cats that like to jump out at their owner’s feet.
8. A lot of work for a scratch
The owner of this dog said it best when they said “They think their dog is broken.” You don’t expect to see dogs twist and contort like this on a normal day. But seeing this as the dog frantically chews on an itch makes it all the creepier.
9. Cerebus lies at the gate of Suburbia
Nothing like a two-headed dog to serve as guards for your home. Well, this Cerberus wanna-be isn’t quite the mythical creature, it’s just two dogs who were standing really close together. Still, what a photo-op for this owner to share with their friends. Which one do you pet first?
10. It costs an arm and a…
Don’t feel bad if this Twitter post made your heart jump a little. But that’s what happens when you have objects that look suspiciously like your cat lying around. But don’t worry about this feline, it’s got all of its paws in the right place.
11. Is that dog drunk or just foaming?
Picture this. You come home from a long day of work ready to hug and play with your playful pup. But then you see your dog laying down looking like it’s drunk and foaming at the mouth. Wouldn’t you panic? Well don’t worry, it was just chewing on something fluffy.
12. Something about their smile
This dog seems peaceful enough until you see its smile. Something about the wide smile and the exposed teeth almost feels like it belongs in a slasher film. Still, if the owner loves them then maybe they aren’t all bad.
13. It’s watching you
This photo is just a pet looking out the window right? There’s something about the dog’s proportions that just make it a little too creepy for words. Some of the comments even say that they thought this was a zombie dog at first. What do you think you’d do if you saw this waiting for you to come home?
14. You should have seen the other dog
This dog looks like he got into a fight with another pet. With that much red, it’s easy to fear what happened to the other dog this pet owner had. But then they noticed a seed and realized that this dog had just been playing in the tomatoes. Everyone can relax there’s no emergency here!
15. A magician’s trick gone wrong
We heard about splitting time evenly, but this is ridiculous. This dog looks like it was split in half, but that’s just how the log happened to be posing when this dog decided to sit down and relax. We can’t blame the owners for freaking out because this is a few special effects away from the next Pet Cemetery movie.
Think is time for the animals to get a little freaked out over nothing?
