An interesting question was asked to the pet owned of Reddit: what rule has your pet instituted in your house that you must now follow?
Every pet owner knows that dogs, cats, birds, or any other pet can think they rule the house. They make some ridiculous rules and demands that owners really have no choice but to follow.
Answer The Bird
If my parrot asks 'what are you doing?', anyone in the immediate vicinity has to respond with what they are doing. He will throw a tantrum if he doesn't get an answer.
If I sneeze my cat will meow softly and walk over to me and pat me on my face until I pick him up and tell him don't worry it was only a sneeze.
When she [my 14yr old grandma kitty] is constipated, she needs me to watch her poop. She'll do these real deep meows and won't stop til I follow her to the litter box where she sits in the middle and tries to poop. We keep eye contact the entire time. If I look away, she stops trying to poop and does the deep meows again. Her normal meows are very high pitched, so it's easy to tell when she's constipated.
"No whispering...ever. My pyr/berner mix will make a growling "woooo" sound from the other room if you whisper to someone else, or to yourself. If you continue to whisper..he will come out to admonish you in person. No secrets in my house."
