Sometimes you put a pillow over your head. Sometimes you hold your ears. But no matter what you do, you can still hear the penetrating buzz of that horrible appliance – the alarm clock.
Vizsla the dog despises it with a passion too, and in this video, as that beep, well, beeps, she howls like she's giving birth in a display of complete displeasure.
Here are some good reasons to wake a sleeping cat: a tsunami. A fire. Taylor Swift getting a new cat and naming it after her favorite TV character.
These things are important.
But waking a cat up for no other reason than to capture its out-of-this-world shriek on camera, well, that's not helping anyone.
Where is Scully?
Two FBI agents are needed to crack the bizarre case of Mulder the cat, who has figured out how to open doors.
Even the feline's owner believes that paranormal forces are at play here. "You scare me," says the cameraman as the cat fully turns a square doorknob and saunters through the doorway. Your eyes will surely widen even more when kitty is still able to open the door after an obstacle is placed in front of it (seriously!).
We're not professionals, but in our opinion this is an open and shut case.
Fur-get lullabies. What all parents of young babies knead is a kitty like this one.
This magically calming feline helps this tired baby drift to sleep like no lullaby we've ever heard. As the baby's eyes begin to close, the cat starts kneading the child's blanket, and as if a graceful fairy were sprinkling pixie dust, sweet slumber is achieved.
Talk about a welcome party!
1-year-old rat terrier Kip hopes to show his new sister, a tabby kitten named Lizzie, just how happy he is to have a new playmate. But his approach is just a little too intense for the newest member of the family.
The pup shows off his moves by racing around in circles on the couch and jumping back and forth – but being careful not to hurt the tiny kitten. As for Lizzie? While at first she seems curious about her new older brother (that his owners refer to as "Dorky"), she very quickly retreats to higher ground on the couch and gives a look that seems to say, "What is the deal with this nut case?"
In movies, showers can be very scary places.
Jack Nicholson in The Shining. Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. Janet Leigh in Psycho. Those horrifying images are filed away in a cabinet in our brains forever. So it's no wonder that dogs – including Turner, from Turner & Hooch – have an aversion to the cells that spew water from a faucet on high.
But here's a brave gal who's living it up like Julia Roberts in the tub in Pretty Woman – she's happy as a clam!
Here's what "working like a dog" really looks like.
A tiny cigarette store in Japan is receiving international attention thanks to one panting, four-pawed staff member. The owners of Musashi-Koganei, a hole-in-the-wall tobacco shop, have "employed" a Shiba Inu to work the front of the house.
We all can't be as crafty as Ian Ziering.
Not only has the former 90210 star landed at the helm of a career-catapulting franchise like SyFy's Sharknado, but his character in the tongue-in-cheek thriller, Fin Shepard, comes up with the most magnificent way to bring down the weather system spewing sharks in the sequel, Sharknado: The Second One, which aired on Wednesday: He throws a tank of Freon inside of it and when a shark swallows him whole he chainsaws his way out. Pure genius.
This is a weather advisory: The purr-fect storm is coming. And we're not kitten – this one is big.
If the idea of tuning into Sharknado 2: The Second One Wednesday night on Syfy (9 p.m. ET) has you feeling under the weather, then this parody is definitely for you.
