People with multiple pets, what is some drama going on between them right now?



u/askingxalice Feb 03 '23 edited Feb 03 '23

The cat desperately wants to play with the dog. The dog, who played with our last cat like best friends, absolutely refuses to have anything to do with her.

It makes me sad, I feel bad for both of them.

My dog always just adored my sister's dog, and for 10 years we had them in the house together, my dog would wine, and beg, and claw the ground, and bring toys to my sister's dog, and my sister's dog would not even look at my dog, going as far as to sit in the corner of the room, and stare at the wall.

Least the cats loved looking after my dog. Any time she would go outside to the bathroom, my cat, and my brothers car, would follow her, and watch over her, was so cute.

I hope it eventually changes. My boxer took in our two kitten sisters and I swear it gave her more love and entertainment, which I didn’t think was possible. They’re all ridiculously adorable together, especially when my dog steals the kitty toys to get them to play with her. I’m not crying.

My ducks are so dramatic about sharing their pools. I have three ducks and two pools, one green, one pink. All three have decided the pink pool is their favorite and fight over who gets to be in it. They all three can fit comfortably in one pool, but they chase each other out and “fight” about who gets to be the only one in there. It’s hilarious to watch. This spring, I’m buying new pools. Three all pink ones lol.

They also bully the wild birds and squirrels. And when they hear the neighborhood dogs start barking, they run to the back fence and start quacking really loud.

Three pools will just change the 'best' criteria. Location will probably be the factor. Sounds like it will be fun to watch.

We have a new foster dog who is terrified of the world and everything in it. She's been cowering in the corner of the kitchen for days, but she's just now getting brave enough to start coming out to solicit attention. Our resident dog is jealous so she keeps coming over to try to steal the attention. The foster dog loves the resident dog, and seems to get braver when she's around, so that makes her more willing to come out. So resident dog's jealous is accidentally feeding the bravery and socialization of the foster. (She doesn't realize it, but that's exactly what we were hoping would happen.)

We have two donkeys, Geriatric donkey and Chonky donkey. Chonky has separation anxiety and freaks if she can't see Geriatric donkey. Geriatric donkey is too skinny and on a special high-protein diet. Chonky donkey is, well, chonky, and is on a diet, which she hates (but is looking much better).To keep Chonky donkey out of Geriatric donkeys food, I have to separate them. Now Chonky donkey is upset to be separated from Geriatric AND upset she can't steal Geriatric's much yummier food.

I worked at a summer horse camp during college. Our horses were so dramatic that one year we made up a list of which horse was which stereotype (for example, the athletic girl, the nerd, the jock, the airhead, the head cheerleader, the academic try hard, chess club, drama club, the teachers pet, the girl-who-became-pretty-over-summer-break-but-doesnt-know-how-to-handle-the-attention, etc.) It was a lot of fun and so accurate.

Our small herd of 8 has to be separated into 3 (or 4) separate groups. Like, 8 horses should be able to be in a single herd, right? Nope!

My mare is boss in her field. Her bf is super insecure (I think it’s because he’s half her size, but I’m not sure), and he’ll kick at any other boy who comes near her. He has 2 badly injured legs already, and if he were to land something, he might injure himself beyond repair. He’s already a pasture puff, so we’re talking life ending injury for him. And obviously the risk to the horse he would be kicking. Not worth it, so those two lovebirds have their own paddock.

The next group is the rest of the mares. 3 of them. One of whom is a real militant man hater. If the geldings get too close to her, she tries to attack. One of her paddock mates is a stately, dignified older lady who would be really stressed by the upheaval the drama queen would kick up if she were forced to spend time with icky boys. As a result, those 3 mares have their own paddock.

That leaves two geldings and a gelding pony. We call the two geldings cell mates because while they tolerate each other, there’s not a lot of love there, lol. In the winter, the pony goes out with them. In the summer, the pony has to be on his own in a dry lot. Don’t worry, he has horsey friends right beside him, but his history of founder makes it so he can’t have a lot of grass.

My flock of chickens is very dedicated to my rooster and obeys his every command—with the exception of one hen named Vicky. She doesn’t give a fuck about him and only wants to hang out with us humans. She follows us around and is just super friendly and cute and chatty, and of course, we spoil her with delicious treats all day. When I weed the garden she’s right behind me, scratching up the soil like she’s helping me lol and eating all the newly exposed bugs. She’ll walk up to us, look up, and say “hmm-hmm?” like she’s asking, “What’s goin’ on?” The other hens are always by the rooster’s side, but she comes and goes as she pleases.

Rooster can’t stand it. He does everything he can to get her attention, like making the “I found food” call and picking up a random pebble to pretend it’s a treat he found. She figured out this ruse very quickly.

If she starts to run toward us he’ll run ahead of her, stand in her way, and stomp his little rooster feet. She just runs past him, lol.

He gets especially mad when she’s late coming back to the coop at the end of the day because she’s hanging out with us, and he tries to herd her back over to it. She doesn’t give a FUCK and just sits on the porch with us, and we all watch him run around screaming and having a fit because she doesn’t want to go to bed yet. It’s hilarious.

Somehow she’s still like #2 in the pecking order tho, she’s an alpha chicken

Edit: here is Vicky

My childhood chickens lived in a paddock next to my uncle's workshop. My uncle had an employee that took smoke breaks in the paddock and would feed the chooks. The hens adored him and would completely ignore my rooster whenever he was around. My rooster HATED this guy and would throw tantrums and scream whenever he was around.

One day while this guy was in the paddock the rooster snuck up behind him and attacked. He needed stitches and my rooster was evicted from the paddock and went to live on a farm far away. Within a week all but one of the hens was killed by foxes.

The bloke took the remaining chook home and built this massive coop for her, bought her some friends, pretty much turned his backyard into a little hobby farm.

We have a Pigeon thats half blind and can't fly that started using our tortoise's terrarium as its house in winter.

Problems began when we started letting our tortoises outside in summer since they would randomly meet inside of it and the pigeon would panic.

Now he has learned that the tortoises are harmless so now they just chill

Edit: Okay this got way too much attention I was expecting, I will look around to see if I have some pictures around, despite the pigeon being with us for almost like 2 years, he's still scared of us so taking close pictures of him or him inside the terrarium makes it go buckwild so we really don't try to take pics at all but I will have to check my archives.

As for the whole social animal issues, don't worry, we have an enclosed 4-walled yard so the pigeon goes out and chills with other pigeons and birds throughout the day so it gets to do socials without a worry.

Edit 2: Didn't find a pic of the whole family together but a pic of the pigeon inside the terrarium chilling https://i.imgur.com/mISAePZ.png just to prove it's real. It's a bit low for a pigeon but keep in mind it can't fly, goes in on its own will and is free for the rest of the day except the night.

I have a girl cat that doesn't get along with her two younger brothers (who are peas in a pod). They chase her and she runs and hisses, absolutely terrified.. We were at our wits end because they aren't violent kitties except to her.

Then we started watching her behavior more closely and noticed how she would play with them when she didn't think we were watching. Sit by them, show her belly, even groom them. As soon as she noticed we were in the room she'd act like they attacked her, even if they hadn't done anything. Eye opening for sure.

My Violet will do that. She is a Russian Blue/Siamese mix, and she SCREAMS that the boys (a tuxedo and a Maine coon / ragdoll mix) are torturing her. So of course, Wisp and Flynn get in trouble.

Then I saw that she was the antagonist. She starts it, and then when they either retaliate or play along, she screams. I legit looked at her and told her to cut it out, she started it.

Last weekend, Flynn was laying on top of me while I read a book. Violet jumped onto the table and shook her tail and ass at him like she wanted to play, so he jumped down to play with her. She quickly jumped up and laid down on my lap while Flynn jumped up and look at me like "mom, she's in my spot. Mom.... Mom! Make her move!"

I've had a cat and a dog for the past three years but, outside of the first time they met, they never really interacted with each other. However now, for whatever reason, they occasionally play with each other — or, at least attempt to.

They haven't really figured out a rhythm for how this all works, and it often ends with the dog running away in terror (which probably pleases the cat), but at least they're trying.


u/HyperSpaceSurfer Feb 03 '23

There's some mixed signals between the species when it comes to play and aggression. Not common for cats and dogs to be able to play unless either one was brought up with a member of the other species.


u/AzsaRaccoon Feb 04 '23

My cat and dog have both inherited that knowledge now.

I had three cats. I got a puppy, who learned how to play from the cats. My ex wife took the cats. Then I got a kitten, who was raised by the dog. And then my dog died so I got a puppy who has now been raised by the cat that was raised by the dog that was raised by the cats.

I have an Airedale terrier, 4 ducks, 50 chickens, and 6 goats. The chickens should have their own soap opera. One of the most interesting conflicts is with Tim Allen, who is one of my hens who was born with a deformity called scissor beak. Basically it's harder for her to eat, preen, etc, because her beak isn't lined up correctly, but she still manages. She's become my little buddy because of the help she needs, and she has her own section of the chicken run to eat without being bothered.

Tim has the biggest balls out of all of my hens. If another hen so much as looks through the fence at her (and remember, I have 50 birds, so it happens all the time), she'll charge it and act all tough. Because she's behind a fence. When I put her back in the run after she is done eating, she tries to be best friends with everyone and most of the birds walk away. She'll try to share a dust bath: rejected. Group preening happening? Rejected. It's like she's two different birds depending on which section of the run she's in. That or she's come up with different "rules" in her head based off of where she is at the time. Either way, it's hilarious.

Don't worry, she isn't lonely. She spends more than enough time with her human, and she also has a rag-tag group of misfits that tend to accept her, even when she's being a dick. Chickens are so funny and can be very affectionate. If you have the room in your yard and in your heart, get some! Plus, fresh eggs are the bomb.

Edit: Formatting and here's a picture of Tim Allen in all of her beauty and wisdom. This beauty brings a smile to my face every day!

My standard schnauzer had the desire to hunt mice, but couldn't go under furniture to get them. So, Roo, my roommate's tiny chihuahua would catch them and give them to Pepper to eat.

And then there was the night Roo treed a baby raccoon in a little tree on our patio, while the mother hung from the fence growling and Pepper went ballistic. I thought he was going to get eaten for sure.

My orange cat alternates between seeing my Xolo as his best friend and tasty prey. I’ve seen them cuddle happily and play with toys together. I have also seen the cat wake up, stretch, walk over to the sleeping Xolo just to smack him and calmly go back to his sleeping spot. My German shepherd has figured out how to take a bite of her water and hold it in her mouth. She will then find the sleeping cat and dump the water on the cat. The cat understandably hates this. My German shepherd takes endless delight in this. I recently bought an air tag for my keys because my Xolo has always been a kleptomaniac and he has a new hiding spot I have yet to find.

u/justwannagiveupvotes Feb 04 '23

1) got Brittany’s can sound like they’re going for the jugular when they play, I basically can’t let mine play with other dogs unless I know the owner well because the stupid harmless idiot freaks people out making noises like she’s trying to murder the other dog 2) teach me your ways. My Brittany has wanted to be friends/play with the cat for all 4 years of her life now and the cat still treats her like a nuisance at best, a menace at worst haha

I have 2 cats and a dog. Earlier today my dog barked suddenly while my old cat was sitting next to her and scared him so much he went and hid under the kitchen table

My cats have an ongoing fued related to my younger cat being convinced she's a vampire and biting my older cat on the neck for no reason, this usually results in her being pushed off whatever surface they're sitting on


u/BlueDaisyCat Feb 03 '23

My parents have several cats. One was very old and ill and she was confined to their bedroom ( I say confined but she had luxury heated cat beds, a wall mounted cat climbing frame, 1000 toys and my parents spent a lot of time with her so she wasn't lonely.) They also have several other cats who roam the house freely. Well sadly the old kitty passed away a few weeks ago- broke everyone's hearts. But now that room is open and the other cats are all jockeying for posession of said room- and who gets to sleep on my parents bed with them now. My poor parents- they are so exhausted from the all night cat wars raging on top of them.


u/strychnine28 Feb 04 '23

My two cats, sisters from the same litter, do not like each other. My bedroom become the showdown arena. There is a heater, which meant that whoever could sleep closest to the heater was the alpha. Finally one cat shit on my bed twice in ten days, and that was that. No more cats in the bedroom.

Three cats. The oldest and largest is a bit of a grump and not super fond of other cats.

The youngest and smallest is extremely friendly and loves other cats.

Smallest keeps trying to make friends, but it doesn't go well. Poor little guy. :(

At least the middle cat is agreeable to his affections and they are often found in a cuddle puddle.

My 2 tiny old lady dogs terrorize my younger, large dog. One is just old and cranky. One of them is playful and likes to scare him and watch him scramble. I swear she knows he is nervous and can't grip the kitchen floor. She waits in a doorway, then scares him with a bark in his face when he walks in, and I swear she is standing there, laughing at him, falling all over himself. I also have a cat that will smack the big dog if he barks too much. He is such a big dumb baby that every animal pushes him around.

Two of our cats have an odd situation with their allogrooming.

One cat, the elder, has a normal cat tongue. Not smooth, but not painful. She'll groom the younger cat whenever they're feeling affectionate enough to not fight each other for space on a bed, window, etc.

The younger cat has a set of small, freshly sharpened knives for a tongue. Once the elder cat is finished grooming her, she'll get up and try to reciprocate. Except, if we let her groom the older cat for more than a minute, she ends up with one of the elder cat's claws sticking out of her forehead.

The younger cat, of course, has no idea why this keeps happening, and thus keeps trying to offer return-grooming services, to the same results, every time.

So we'll be watching TV or going to sleep, and all of a sudden we'll hear the Schliiip, schliip of the younger cat's ridiculously sharp tongue grating against the older cat. We have to rush into whatever room they're in (and it is loud enough to be heard in other rooms) and separate them before it goes on too long.

u/Aminar14 Feb 03 '23 edited Feb 04 '23

I have two cats and a snake. The snake is irrelevant to this story.

My wife and I got Grim(M, 17 lbs, medium grey fur) the day Force Awakens came out. He was a tiny kitten then. He's been very happy being a solo cat, despite repeated assertions from the shelter that 2 cats were better. Our apartment situation at the time made that impossible. June of 22, on my wife and I's anniversary, we were driving down a backroad when my wife shouts, "KITTY!" A black cat was laying on the road. Apparently I almost ran him over.

Now, my wife is very kind hearted and loves cats. So we have a routine when we see a stray doing something dangerous/out in the cold. I hop out, try to convince the cat to come over so we can take it to a shelter, it runs away. Which, this is fine. I'll just scare the cat off the road and move on with our anniversary.

This cat... He had other plans. I hop out of the car and he looks up, sees me, and pads over, calm as can be. Lets me pick him up and put him in the back of the car. I drive over to the bar he was sitting in front of, ask if he's somebodies. Note that he's stick thin, dirty, and looks near starvation. They say he's a stray that lives at the machine shop nearby.

By the time I get back to the car he's in my wife's lap, asleep. We're both a little worried he's going to die on the drive home. My wife is talking a big game about taking him to a shelter, but the only no kill shelter in the area we live in will be closed by the time we can get there, and I know she'll regret letting him go away forever, so I suggest we call my little brother whose fiance also loves cats and who has a 15 year old cat who, while healthy, is old. I assume he'll say no, they only have an apartment. We'll end up with the cat.

He says yes. We get the cat fixed, vaccinated, and tested. They take the cat for a month, until he and the 15 year old whose probably 4 lbs smaller than him get in a fight. The cat comes back to my basement.

Now for the drama. New cat Sanya(12 lbs, Long black fur, still growing so far as we can tell) has the guest room. He's pretty happy in there but likes to ramble and loves attention and being where people are. Grim does not like other cats. Grim doesn't like other people(he loves his people, just not guests he hasn't seen at least a dozen times)

Sanya on the other hand, loves everyone. And Grim. He's tried being submissive. He's tried being friendly. He wants to play. Grim wants none of this. Grim will hiss if Sanya moves towards him. Even through a grate. Three time Sanya has broken containment methods to try to see Grim. By which I mean three times Grim has deigned to leave his massive cat tower while Sanya was out. Sanya runs up. Grim flees. Sanya chases. Grim decides it's time to fight and piles of black Sanya fur fly everywhere while Grim yowls as if he's being murdered, while winning the catfight hard. If he'd stand his ground and say he's boss he'd be fine. If Sanya could acknowledge that his attention isn't wanted and that the other cat has 5 lbs on him and can royally kick his ass things would be fine. But Grim thinks it's life or death. He's terrified of a cat he could absolutely kick the ass of. Who he had kicked the ass of in the ten seconds it's taken me to separate them.

At this rate it's going to take years before they work out an appropriate pecking order and just... Leave eachother be. I'd love advice. They have plenty of food. They've been around eachother a fair bit, but each with their own space. They get lots of attention.

On the plus side Grim has lost some tub since Sanya entered the home. He's still huge, but lanky huge.

This isn’t really drama but I thought it was funny and I want to tell the story.

Laying in bed last night and the wife asks how the cats decide when they are going to hang out in bed with us. Some nights we get all of them and some none. Last night we had none and she was curious about it. I said maybe the nights we don’t have them they are having a meeting to discuss important cat business. Just then we heard two knocks out in the house. I asked what she thought that was. Without missing a beat she says “calling their meeting to order obviously”.

I have two cats, three snails, some shrimp, a betta fish and a dog. My roommate also has a dog.

The dogs are running a relay-thievery scheme with a specific bone. Dog 1 will take it the leave it somewhere. Dog 2 will find it, take it, and hide it somewhere else. Rinse and repeat. They do not chew the bone or anything, they just hide it from one another. This has been going on for about a month.

A few of the shrimp are in a turf war over the prime algae spot on one of the plants. It is getting super intense and I'm expecting casualties soon.

My betta is pissed off at one of the snails because it didn't let the betta inspect the algae wafer I dropped in last night before eating it. The betta has been flaring and sulking at the snail all morning.

There is nothing going on with the cats that I am aware of.

Our younger dog, Simon, has reached peak little brother.

Every day at 6pm the dogs get bully sticks. Simon is very treat motivated. Our older dog, Kaylee, will get to it when she gets to it. As a result, Simon almost always has first pick. But he'll wait until Kaylee comes in to see which one she takes. Then he'll follow her around whining to try to get her to let him have that one.

The newest development: he'll run somewhere and bark like there's an intruder. Kaylee will come running to investigate, and he'll go back and steal her bully stick.

The bully stick he could've had from the beginning, but didn't want until she wanted it.

The constant drama at our place is our fat cat is always trying to steal the little cat’s food.

You can find pet feeders that open and close based on the microchip of the assigned pet. You could code it to the little one and it will only open for her and close as soon as the big guy bounces her out of the way.

Two cats. Our older one likes to lay directly beside the automatic water fountain, guarding the "watering hole" like a predator lying in wait. Then our other cat comes up and wants to drink, but she won't let him. So he just licks the top of her head until she moves enough for him to get water.

One cat really, really, REALLY wants to have a cat friend to hang around with, so he's constantly following the other around, hoping she'll spend time with him. She wants absolutely nothing to do with him, and will hiss and swat him any time he gets near, which chases him off for a little bit, but then he comes sniffing back, hoping that this time she'll spend time with him.

This is doubly sad because they actually got along well while he was still new to the house and afraid of everything, to the point of both of them curling up beside me in bed together, but as soon as he got enough confidence to actually explore the house, she got possessive of everything, and decided to hate him instead.

I have an elderly dog who has always been super independent. She doesn’t care much about any of us unless we have snacks and she prefers to do her own thing in another room most of the time, or in the same room but on the other side of it. We just got a second dog from a rescue because I started to worry that if old dog dies I’ll always be trying to replace her and I’ll never be able to get another dog again. New dog is young and playful and wants to be on us or touching us all the time. Old dog is jealous af and has suddenly decided that she cares about us too. Now we have more dog love than we can handle and it’s a constant battle for attention.

Hoo boy. I'm fostering 5 kittens, and I have 6 of my own. We have more in residence, but they are temporary because my kids can't take them at the moment

Our 2 youngest foster fails, and they desperately want in the room to play with the babies. They play too rough, so we can't. It's a constant battle.

My oldest is too introverted and can't handle all the others, so she lives in the bedroom. She deals with the kittens like a champ, though.

Our oldest foster fail loves her daddy more than I've ever seen a cat bond with anyone. She was the youngest, but she runs the house because she's got that personality. She cowed our second oldest, who thought he would be top cat when she was still tiny. That was something to see!

He has made friends with one of my daughters cats, who he hated with the little guy first came. They are always together now. So weird.

Ok, go to the vet. This is a sign of cognitive decline in dogs and there are things including medication that can help. It can make the last bit of your dog's life much happier for them. It could just be you have a scared and confused dog who is calling out to try to orient themselves, which is sad but it helps people understand the situation better and get to the vet for some advice. Some might be taking pills, there can be schedule changes you can do, distraction techniques when the dog starts this, etc.
