Top Google-able Pet Questions

The internet is such a great place. Why? Um, have you seen the endless supply of dog and cat videos? Talk about cute.

But no, for real, why is it such a great place? Well, you can pretty much get an answer for any kind of question you possibly have.

Like, why does my cat have to knock everything in my house over? Is there an actual reason or is he just being a jerk?

Or, why does my dog feel the need to run around like crazy when she comes in from the cold? Is she really happy to be inside or does she just have cold air up her butt?

These are very valid questions, from very valid pet owners. In fact, they're a few of the most Googled pet questions. But there's a lot more where that came from.

 

TOP FIVE GOOGLED CAT QUESTIONS:

Why does my cat lick me?

A: They want attention, they're 'cleaning' you, they're showing affection, or you just taste good.

Why does my cat sneeze so much?

A: A simple tickle in the cat's nose, such as dust or perfume.

Why does my cat stare at me?

A: Maybe your cat is trying to figure out how she should respond to your body language, but your cat is also sharing his or her feelings with you.

Why does my cat sleep on me?

A: They just want to be warm, they want to show you affection, they feel safe, or you may just be comfortable.

Why do cats knead?

A: Although this kind of behavior is comforting to the cats, they also have scent glands in the soft pads on their paws, meaning when they knead a surface their own scent is being released - staking their claim on either you or an object.

 

TOP FIVE GOOGLED DOG QUESTIONS:

Why does my dog eat poop?

A: Boredom, stress, they want attention, they're scavengers, doggie see, doggie eat doo-doo, or anxiety.

Why does my dog eat grass?

A: They like how it tastes or their stomach may be gassy or upset.

Why do dogs chase their tail?

A: They're bored, want attention, might just be genetics, or maybe they have anxiety.

Why do dogs bury their bones?
