Things Your Pets Hate

Because I am such an animal lover, I have to share this with you. Here are some things your animals hate that you do.
1. Hugging your dog. According to Cracked.com, dogs actually HATE it when you put your face next to theirs. Supposedly it's a claustrophobia thing, so hugging or kissing them can freak them out.
And if it gets REALLY stressed, or you're not THAT familiar, you might get bitten out of nowhere . . . even by a dog that has never bitten anyone before.
2. Staring into a cat's eyes. People like to do it because cats are so good at staring back. But cats see it as a sign of aggression. They're more affectionate with people who DON'T stare. When you look at a cat, blink slowly so it knows you're not a threat.
3. Feeding them people food. Believe it or not, cats are lactose-intolerant. They're not supposed to drink milk. And dogs should never have bones or raw meat . . . for the same reasons we don't eat them ourselves.
