Animals and Cats: Caturday treat! - FML

Today, I watched as my friend played dead to see how her cat would react. She got upset when he just sniffed her hand and walked away.

Happy birthday to me. FML

Devin Coldewey

Apple’s iPhone 12 Pro heaps improvements on the already-formidable power of its camera system, adding features that will be prized by “serious” photographers — that is to say, the type who like to really mess around with their shots after the fact. Of course the upgrades will also be noticeable for us “fire and forget” […]

Animals, Poopoo peepee and Cats: Cats can do anything, but they have to want to - FML

Darrell Etherington

Animals and Cats: Needy furbaby - FML

Today, my cat locked herself in the bathroom and screamed until she was let out, for what seems like the millionth time this week. It took me a while to realize she's doing it on purpose for attention. She is loved and cared for; I've never neglected her. Apparently, it's still not enough. FML

Animals, Anxiety and Horses: My lovely horse - FML

Animals, Dogs and Cats: Noise annoys - FML

Today, I had to watch my grandparents' dogs. Unfortunately, my grandparents forgot to tell me that their new dogs bark non-stop whenever anyone else is in the house, which inspires the older dogs to do the same thing.

Animals and Cats: Cujo, but for cats - FML

Today, my cat was incessantly meowing trying to get me to wake up and feed him. Because it was 6 a.m., and I'd hardly slept at all last night, my brain decided that the best solution to get him to shut up would be to hug him. The result was a normally docile and lazy cat giving me a nasty scratch next to my left eye. FML
