We all love our pets, but sometimes they make that weird movement, or that strange sound, and they totally creep us out.

Here are ten stories of pets creeping out their owners.

1/10. The creepiest thing my cat Fatso ever did was come back and visit mea year and a half after she died! I buried her at my moms under a tree and then some time later moved about 25 miles away. It was on a night that I couldnt sleep, which is very unusual for me. I tossed and turned for hours. I was lying on my side watching the clock when I felt an all too familiar pounce on the bed, right behind my knees. I froze. Then I felt the circlingyou know the one where they have to circle several times before settling down. She circled and then sat. And then I could very clearly feel the rhythm of her licking at her chest. After another few seconds, I felt her get up, head towards the foot of the bed, and leap off.

After remembering how to breathe again, I turned over slowly and peeked around the room. I was alone.

A friend asked if I still owned any of her belongings and I told her that I have her collar that she wore her entire life (14 years). She said thats how she found me and most likely just wanted to know where I had gone. She then asked if I turned to see her. I said, Absolutely not! I knew it was her and I was okay with it being her. But I most certainly didnt want to see her ghost! Most likely I wouldnt have seen anything. But still

2/10. At one point in his career, my husband traveled a lot leaving me and my cat Norman alone for several days at a time. This was no problem, as I actually enjoy being alone and who could be lonely if they have a cat near by?

Ordinarily, my husband and I didnt communicate much while he was away because of the strenuousness of his job and his commute and the fact that he was second shift while I was working first.

Every evening when I came home, Norman would be waiting for me in the front hall where she would proceed to entangle herself around my feet while I tried to get my coat and shoes off. Except of this one night. (continued...)



I came home as usual, but instead of sitting in the front hall waiting for me, Norman was standing at the doorway to our bedroom. She starting calling to me. Walking up to me, and then back to the doorway. It looked like Lassie when she was trying to tell them that Timmy had fallen in the well.

Long story short, I finally followed her into the bedroom where she jumped up onto the bed and stared at the phone. Within a minute the phone rang! It was my husband telling me he was going to be coming home early and not to put the chain on the door.

She had never alerted me to a phone call before and never did it again. Thats about as creepy as Norm ever got. Still amazes me that she knew he was going to call.

3/10. My quaker parrot is quite talkative - and he tends to use his vocabulary in context. He wont say yummy unless hes eating a treat. He wont say wanna come out if hes already outside his cage. Whatcha doing? and Come here! are for when he cant see where I am


.And thats why Im baffled by how, when he occasionally gets violent and bites me hard, he never fails to laugh hysterically IN MY VOICE and proclaim, Youre so funny!

Its SUPER CREEPY. WHY is it so funny that Im in pain because you bit me, little guy? I love you, but that laugh in context is sinister!

Julia Kay

4/10. Talk to another cat that had passedfor weeks. I think.

I once had three cats, two young who grew up and played together. One very old.

The old one, Crystal, never really cared for the younger ones, but one of the younger ones, Kita, the male, oh, he just loved her. No matter she was kind of mean to him, he loved her all the same.

Crystal kitty used to yowl, to call me. It was something she started as she slowly lost her sight, as she went from old to really, really old. She would make this one, very particular yowl, whenever she needed to know where I was. I'd answer, that would be it. She was the only one who ever did it. I was the only one who answered. (continued...)



At 24 3/4 years, it was Crystal kitty's time. I used to say I had that cat longer than I had breasts, and it was true. I took her passing hard. Kita took it hard too. Even Moisha, who previously never once acted like she enjoyed anything except tormenting Crystal, even Moisha mourned.

I went to bed that first night.and the sound of Crystal kitty calling me woke me up. It happened night after night, for weeks. I thought I was losing my mind.

Maybe it was Kita, though often both he and Moisha were in bed with me when I was awoken to that particular call. If it was Kita, I never once actually saw him make that sound, not ever, not once on his entire 20 years.

5/10. This is Junior

I choose not to think about exactly how much he understands sometimes. Like, say, when he killed a moth in the bathroom while I pooped. He was sitting on the counter, and the moth landed on the mirror. Junior sat up on his haunches, flicked out a paw and crushed the moth, then purposely smeared it down the mirror.

Or when he turned a full grown squirrel into a finger puppet. He ate the tail and guts out of it and left the hollowed out top half laying around like litter from the most fucked up puppet show ever.

Or when he picked up a mouse in his paw, stuck it in the corner of his mouth where his shearing teeth are, and ate its face off. While it was alive. Then he dropped it on the ground and watched it with apparent glee.

Or, when he was playing with a mouse hed caught in the house, and he punished it for trying to get away from him. Hes not a small cat. He weighs around 18 pounds. So, when he slapped his paw down on the fleeing mouse, it wasnt going anywhere. But Junior wasnt satisfied. Apparently it offended him that the mouse didnt want to play. So, he put both paws on the mouses body, and leaned on it like he was giving it CPR. Something went *crack* in the mouse, and it let out a squeak. Junior relented, and stepped back to watch as the poor thing scrambled around with considerably less dexterity than previously.

See, if I think about his problem solving abilities, or that japanese researchers have found that cats understand cause and effect, then I might have to come to the conclusion that my fat, furry little buddy is a ravening psychopath.

6/10. This is Tony.

He's a rescue, and loves us a lot.

At night he usually sleeps in a cat bed lined with fleece on the tallest dresser. There is a shorter dresser at the foot of our bed he has to jump on to reach it. Typically, he just uses that dresser as a stepping stone to the one he really wants to lay on.

One night around 3am I woke with a start for no apparent reason. The apartment was silent, but not entirely dark as our blinds don't completely block the street lights outside. Well, maybe I just need to relax and get back to sleep I wonder why I feel so paranoid

Then I heard the purring. Aww, is he on the other side of the bed? No, just my partner and a sleeping Vlad (our other cat) who doesn't purr loudly. Tony was no where to be oh there he is. I can see his silhouette against the street lights.

Sitting upright on the dresser close to the bed, away from his cat bed. Purring like crazy. Watching us sleep.

Maybe we should have named him Edward.

7/10. I awoke one morning, probably Saturday, to the noise of a swishing sound in other parts of the house. My bedroom door was closed, and the bedroom is on the second floor of the house. It sounded like the swishing sound was downstairs most of the time, but occasionally would come up the stairs and into the back bedroom, before going back downstairs again. It was pretty spooky.

(I should mention that I also had problems several years before with appliances turning on by themselves. I later figured out the appliances had bad timing motors that would run when the appliances knobs were in the Off position. I also had a side gate to the backyard open by itself dozens of timesnever figured that one out. On another time I awoke one morning to the sound of a large dog barking in the attic. Talk about freaky!

I cautiously went up into the attic, and found the bearings on one of the rotating vents had worn out, and it was making a sound exactly like a barking dog, sort of a Rrrr-rrr-rrr-Rrrr-rrr sound constantly, varying a bit with the speed of the wind. To top it all off, I had recently found out that the husband of the previous owner died falling off the roof, so the possibility of poltergeists were on my mind.)

I finally decided I had to do something about the noise, for who knows what it was. (continued...)



Maybe a bird had broken in through a window or something. We have red tail hawks around here. I opened my bedroom door and stepped out into the hall, but not as far as the ninety degree turn to go down the stairs. I could hear the swishing sound moving around downstairs. Suddenly, it sounded like it was coming up the stairs. I braced myself, and my cat Rocket came flying past with a plastic grocery bag handle over his head as he raced into the back bedroom.

I managed to corral him, and took the bag off his head. His heart was racing and Im sure he was in a panic. He calmed down, but I imagine he hated plastic grocery bags from there on out. I think he was probably rooting around in a trash can, which I often line with grocery bags, for a used fabric softener sheet. I soon learned to put those away where he couldnt find them, because he liked to eat them. Still, one would occasionally stick to clothes, and he was good at finding those, too. Hes deceased now, probably in a nice place without grocery bags, but with an endless supply of fabric softener sheets, nicely torn into thirds.

8/10. We had a strange little black and white cat called Scarlet who was very interested in anything psychic and would insist on joining in if you tried to meditate, pushing her nose into you face and going "Watcha doin' mumma?" I have read of cases where humans who could do astral projection became so still and cold that they appeared dead, and I believe that Scarlet may have been able to do this - although it's also possible that she fell into some kind of coma, since her health wasn't good, or that she had triggered some kind of ancestral hibernation mechanism.

At any rate when we'd had her for about six months, and she was maybe two years old, I found her curled up on the sofa apparently stone dead. There's a look that dead animals have, a characteristic way their fur lies, and she had it. Her body was icy cold and when I shook her, trying to wake her up, her tightly-curled body moved in a solid block like something stuffed. It seemed clear that she was not only dead but had been dead long enough for rigor mortis to be fully developed. I said out loud "Oh, Scarlet!" and she then woke up perfectly normally, if a bit blearily.

Also, I've been keeping rats for decades and so I've seen many rats who have died. Usually the bodies are left to lie until I find them the next day, or occasionally buried in wood shavings. Once, though, I found a female rat lying dead and her cage-mates had got hold of two lamb shoulder-blades (given to them to gnaw on) and had dragged them across to the body and then arranged them to form a sort of covering. What was so creepy was that they were perfectly symmetrically arranged, with the two blades meeting in a peak over the dead doe's spine, like some sort of ritual burial.

9/10. I noticed that one of my friends stopped coming to my house as he used to do. He stopped talking to me gradually and he started treating me in a very different way. (continued...)


At first, I thought that maybe he had a problem in his family and so I confronted him. He said it is because of what you did the other day. I was shocked! I didn't do anything!

He said: I came to your house, knocked the door and you shouted at me: I'm not here, F*ck off!.

It appeared that the pet parrot my brother bought few days ago said that. I took my friend to our house and we knocked the door. Thankfully, the parrot said these words again.

I don't know who taught him these words, but it could've cost me my friend.

10/10. My dog Branston Pickle wakes me up in the middle of the night - Im not actually sure how I get woken - but I wake to him standing up staring right at me next to my bed, about 6 inches from my face.

If I watch him for a bit, he just stares back. Its creepy.

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like

Giphy

My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

Saturdays

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

Iraq

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

$40

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

Crayons

Giphy

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Tomash

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

Giphy

How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?"

"that's orange"

"no, it's red"

"orange"

"YOU CANT EVEN KNOW"

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Andre 2000?

Giphy

I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.

Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

Jewish

Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.

Nutella

3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

Telekinesis

My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.

dude_bizarro

Ghosts

How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

Dogs and Chocolate

Giphy

I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

Stars In Their Multitude

Giphy

I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

Colorblind

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
