It all started when Twitter user @PaladinAmber shared some information about her cat with the Internet. “For a couple days my cat had been showing signs of dying,” she wrote. “Not drinking, not eating, sleeping and hiding.”
So, as one owner would, she took her cat to the vet. Turns out the cat wasn’t dying, but it seemed like the animal got in a fight and lost. “He’s depressed he lost, his vitals are fine,” she said.
Surprisingly, this woman is not alone when it comes to thinking your pet is dying only to find that they are not dying in the slightest. Several users on Twitter responded to her tweet with their own hilarious stories. Here are some of the best responses.
1. The original story
Here’s the story that started it all.
If you have a baby, your cat might just get jealous and play dead.
3. Sick parrot
If we know anything about parrots, it’s that they will mimick everything you do. Even if you’re coughing and sneezing up a storm.
Apparently, if the vet has a certain food that your pet really likes, they will play sick to go get more of it.
5. Cats… They’re just like kids!
“Cost $700 to find out she was being dramatic.”
6. No difference
Well, this one is a little sad… The owners couldn’t tell the difference!
7. Pep talk
Seems like it doesn’t matter if it’s a cat or a dog. No matter what, they have major ego problems and it is hilarious!
8. When you’re convinced that your cat is ill
But then you take them to the vet and they are completely fine.
Just in case anyone was unsure if animals really do mourn or not, this person can confirm that according to their cat’s actions, they most definitely do. It’s sad, but then they will eventually seem happier, just like humans do!
10. Copy cat
Or should we say, copy dog?
11. “Please don’t go”
These animals are smart. They think that if they are hurt, their owners won’t leave them! No suitcases, please!
12. Oh, the drama
Who would have thought that a possum could have the power to traumatize a dog?
13. Hunger strike
This lady cat clearly loves her men!
14. No cat-sitting, please
“This is how my cat looks when my friend who cat-sits her comes over. She loves him but is very cranky. She’s also made herself throw up.”
“My melodramatic baby gets ‘sick’ every time I take care of an orphaned kitten,” one person shared. “That’s what I get for naming him Bogart.”
16. How convenient
“My cat would always start meowing & laying in the floor like he was in pain everytime I would put my work uniform on. One time I called off work to take him to the vet & I took my uniform off & he was suddenly fine so I knew what was up. Little brat.”
17. A “very stinky boy”
“My cat Teddy has such foul pee that the rescue thought he might have kidney conditions. The vet just diagnosed him, and I quote, as a ‘very stinky boy.'”
18. True depression
It actually can be quite a serious thing.
19. Well, that’s interesting!
Turns out, cats can have all different kinds of random problems!
20. When she’s upset…
“This is my girl when she’s upset with me. She cannot not touch me in some way so she will perch on my lower leg. Instead of her normally cuddled up on my chest. And yes, I’m getting the stare down in this photo.”
21. “Clever girl”
Who’s limping now?
22. Not the smartest
You can pretend to have a limp, but it kind of loses its effect if you forget which leg you’re limping on.
23. Toothless cat
She might be depressed about having no teeth, but her owner makes her feel better about it!
24. Being fed by all neighbors
“Spent $300 at vet to be told my dog is getting plenty of food from somewhere & my neighbors are lying to me. Turns out every single neighbor was feeding her & lying to me.”
25. All of your attention is needed
“My cat gets depressed when i won’t give him all of my undivided attention LMAO.”
26. Comfort eating
That’s all it ever was. Well, also anxiety and a UTI.
27. There’s a new kid in town
Turns out cats don’t like competition. All attention needs to be on them.
28. More evidence
Here’s more evidence that proves cats do not handle competition well.
29. Cats really just don’t want you to leave them
They will really act out if you do.
30. Cat mafia
Yeah, because apparently that exists.
