Pup and Kitten Think They Are Related

Buttons the Jack Russell was rejected by her mother and Kitty the kitten was abandoned and later found on the street.  Button and Kitty were put together and they immediately seemed to like each other. The employees of the animal shelter even suspect that the two think that they’re sisters.

Dogs Saying I Love You

We all know dogs love their humans, but have a look at how they actually express it.

Crotch Sniffing

dogsaffection3Ugh, this is an embarrassing one and how we wished our dogs can quit going around sniffing crotches. But before you start screaming at your dog, try to understand it. This behaviour is in fact a dog’s perculiar way of greeting. More importantly, apart from a hello, it allows the dog to understand and remember you through your scent.

Tail Wagging

dogsaffection8 Similar to a cat, a dog’s tail is a communication tool. In fact it is sometimes more accurate in translating its emotions than barking. Held at different positions, a dog’s wag could communicate excitement, fear, threat or submission. If your dog’s tail is held in a relaxed position and wagging all together with its entire butt, it means it is very happy to see you.

Following You Wherever You Go

dogsaffection6This is another behaviour that can get on your nerves, especially when your dog attempts to follow you to work! However, it is only a dog’s way to show his love, devotion and loyalty to you. Wherever you are, that is where your dog wants to be. Dogs are extreme social creatures and unlike humans, there is no need for solitude.

Leaning on You

dogsaffection1Whether you are sitting or standing, your dog is leaning on you and wouldn’t budge. You can’t move and you can’t get on with your daily routine. While you are wondering what they are up to, your dog has already got what they needed: your attention. Getting your attention and giving you their attention by leaning on you is their way of showing affection. Next time this happens, stop what you are doing and reciprocate with some love.

Smiling

dogsaffection4It is no surprise when you see something like a smile on your dog. Dogs do smile too! Research has found that dogs can also show and use facial expressions similar to how humans do. A dog’s smile is another way of showing his love and joy to his owner. Having said that, most of us are guilty of not recognizing our dog’s smile.

Face Licking

dogsaffection7 Warm, sticky, wet and stinky! We know this can get annoying but licking a person’s face is a love gesture from a dog. Dogs lick faces for a few reasons. Mainly, if your pet dog is licking your face, he is trying to groom you! Grooming is an intimate gesture only done after a strong connection is made between dogs (so now you know he sees you as one of his kind). On the other hand, if a stranger dog licks your face, it is simply trying to say that he is harmless and friendly.

Sleeping with You

Sheltie sleeping with her owner Similar to wild wolve packs, wild dogs curl up together to sleep in the night. Rather than sleeping alone in his designated corner, your dog prefer to snuggle right next to you in your bed. If you catch your dog sneaking onto your bed or falling asleep next to you in your couch, it implies that you are his family.

Taking Care of You When You are Sick

dogsaffection2Does your dog stay by your bed and watch you the whole time while you are nursing a flu? This is its natural instinct to care for a sick or wounded family member, just as they would in the wild. A dog extends its love and care to its sick or injured owner by quietly and patiently watching over him/her. But make sure you hide any superficial wounds away from your dog! It might actually lick your wound as its form of first aid.

They Bring You Gifts

dogsaffection9Last but not least, they bring you gifts….possibly from your flower garden though… but you just gotta love them!  xoxo

17 Exotic Animals That People Have As Pets

Owning a pet of any kind requires care and attention.  Exotic animals can prove to be way more challenging than your average dog or cat, so please do your homework if you ever consider adding an exotic animal to your family.

 

1.  Serval

These cats grow to be upwards of 50 pounds, and love to hunt. Keeping them strictly as an indoor cat will not work, as they are nocturnal and will probably jump on you while you’re sleeping. Also they mark their territory by peeing on everything – yes even you, dear reader.

 exotic01via cbc

 2.  Wallaroo

If you’re a small home or apartment dweller, the wallaroo is not a good choice – they need room to hop about. They can jump as high as 6 feet, so a decent fence is also a must. They are sociable, and can even be taught simple commands.

exotic02via yourpetspace

3.  Alligators & Crocodiles

Crocodiles and Alligators are arguably cute as babies, but do not let that cloud your judgement. They grow quickly, and can reach terrifying sizes. A six foot version of either of these could easily be too much to handle for a small group of grown men. They can not be tamed, therefore they should always be considered dangerous.

exotic03via youtube
exotic03-2via deviantart / Martina-WW

4.  Hedgehog

Though they are extremely cute, you need to be thick of skin to get close to your pet hedgehog. Think of it as a rolling pet cactus. They do not seek out human interaction, so only in the rarest of cases have they been trainable. They also sleep most of the time, so don’t expect to see it do much other than that.

exotic04via chetveronogiy

5.  Sloth

In the wild, sloths spend the majority of their time hanging out in trees – literally. They really only come down to ground level to relieve themselves about once a week – but when they do it’s a considerable mess. As an owner, you can expect this behaviour as well. However they are very affectionate and love playing peek-a-boo.

exotic05via nothing-indeed

6.  Bearded Dragons

If you know nothing about lizard care, you should rule out a bearded dragon. They require a very specific habitat, temperature, and feeding/bathing routine. If they eat anything larger than the space between their eyes, they can become paralyzed or die.

exotic06via freewallsource

7.  Fennec Fox

These little guys do not grow much bigger than a Chihuahua – roughly three to three and a half pounds. They can be trained to use a litter box, and are sociable to their owners if they are constantly around them. They do seem to have their own personalities and temperaments.

 exotic07via cutenessoverflow

8.  Axolot

Honestly, this thing looks like the cutest Pokemon character brought to life. It also has amazing regenerative powers, including regrowing lost limbs, if attacked by another animal. The downsides are that it produces a LOT of waste and can be difficult to keep it’s aquarium clean.

exotic08via fineartamerica

9.  Capybara

In case you haven’t guessed, the capybara is the largest rodent in the world. They also love the water. It isn’t legal to own in every state, but if it is, the capybara should get some serious consideration for your next pet.

 exotic09via imgur / LambPasty

10. Spotted Genets

Genets look like a cross between a cat and a ferret. There are several different species of Genets which can range in fully-grown sizes of 1 to 7 pounds. They are affectionate and curious, but easily spooked. If you’d like to know more, you can start here.

“Oh. We’re taking pictures? I didn’t know we were taking pictures.”

exotic10via jandaexotics

11. Sugar Gliders

These cute little marsupials are extremely social, and will could actually die from depression without interaction with it’s owner or another of it’s kind, so needless to say, properly caring for a sugar glider is demanding. But look at it! JUST LOOK AT IT!

“Excuse me sir, may I have some more?”

 exotic11via petsetter

12 Armadillo

Owning an armadillo is not for everyone. They are, like most unusual pets on this list, nocturnal. They are only awake for about four hours each night, and as a non-domesticated animal, they tend to be quite destructive to a home. They also are infamous for carrying fleas and having a strong, musky odor.

 exotic12via attackofthecute

13. Pot-Bellied Pigs

They are intelligent, easily trained, playful, affectionate, mostly quiet, and clean/odor free. I bet most of those attributes shocked you. Pigs make great pets, and can easily become part of the family. The downsides are a non-stop quest for food, constant digging and rooting, and aggression issues. But if you’re prepared as a pet owner, these issues can be overcome.

exotic13via chron

14. Chinchilla

The chinchilla is relatively easy to care for, but they do require daily attention – which includes a sand bath. They are better off housed with a familiar chinchilla of the same sex, as they breed quite frequently.

exotic14via petsworld

15. Kinkajou

Yup. It is seriously this cute. The kinkajou is playful, quiet, docile, and not really all that smelly (which is a plus). They rarely do, but can become aggressive when agitated. They have a longer lifespan then you’d think, ranging from 23 to 41 years.

exotic15via chriszelig

16. Skunks

Skunks have a bad rep, but if you properly care for the skunk from day one, it will be a great companion. Typically, you will buy your baby skunk with the scent gland removed, which leaves the only danger being their sharp teeth and claws. Skunks are very intelligent, and will not forget any abuse – meaning you need to be a patient and loving owner for the relationship to work out.

exotic16via cuteanimals

17. Pygmy Goats

Definitely one of the more easier to care for animals on this list, but you still need a lot of room. They love to climb and jump, so a proper enclosure with room to explore is a must. They live for about 15 years, and require socializing – so it’s best to get two.
