'Garlic is toxic to cats!': Internet condemns friend for feeding woman's cat toxic food and refusing to stop when asked

Fail Blog - Thu, 05/25/2023 - 09:00

It's adorable how some folks treat their animals as humans—personifying them and giving them a voice and thoughts as if they can understand every word we say. 

I don't mean to sound cynical here. It's beautiful to see people treat their animals like family—they are—and where would mankind be without the companionship of pets? But, the personification should stop here; unfortunately, too many pet owners take personification a step too far and begin treating their pets in a way that doesn't suit their biology, feeding them food that is undigestible—or straight-up toxic.

Your cat, dog, and (insert other animal here) did not evolve to digest a human diet, so you need to be extra careful what you're feeding them daily; it's always best to stick to a diet that caters to their specific nutritional needs. Now, that's not to say that you can't occasionally give your dog a piece of cheese when he has been a good boy.

Breaking this rule occasionally is one thing when it's your pet, but it's another thing when an outside party repeatedly feeds your pet food that it shouldn't eat and refuses to listen when you ask them not to. Unfortunately, that's what this woman has to deal with from her husband's friend, who has repeatedly fed her cat "human food." Things reached a boiling point when he tried to feed her cat garlic bread, refusing to stop until she had physically revoked his meal. She then took to the internet to share her account of the resulting confrontation and see whether or not she was in the wrong.

Readers were quick to condemn the friend in the comments. Read on to see screenshots of the owner's account of events and the responses from readers in the ensuing thread. Next, check out this woman who stole her roommate's cat and wondered if she was wrong.

Tiny Sweet Cat Will Never Grow Bigger Because Of A Rare Medical Condition (Video)

LOL Cats - Thu, 05/25/2023 - 09:00

Have you ever found yourself falling down the internet-hole, and suddenly, you're looking at incredible medical videos of people who have insane medical conditions? Yeah, us too. And this time, we ended up falling even further down the hole, and we found ourselves on the veterinary side of that section of the internet. 

Of course, we know that animals can have rare and crazy conditions too. We have seen the cat that was born with two faces. We have seen Rex, the cat who has no front legs. We have seen that viral story about a cat who was born with a strange lump on its head. But we have yet to hear about a cat who has dwarfism. Turns out it's real. We all tell people to treasure the time that their cat is a kitten, because before they know it, they'll blink, and their kitty will be a fully grown cat. Well, that's not true in this case. This precious cat will forever be smol because of its condition, and all we can say now is that we hope this cat will be smol for a long, long time.

'I got kicked out': Man instructs son to 'act like we’re a happy family' in front of friends, son makes it extra awkward

Fail Blog - Thu, 05/25/2023 - 08:00

This family brought their messy drama to a 25 year reunion party, and things quickly got awkward. 

Family life is different for everyone, and while many people have stellar relationships with their parents and siblings, others have a harder time getting along. In this story, the OP is still quite young, having just turned 18. But as they share in their post to r/AmItheA**hole, their parents don't really care about them. In fact, the OP was kicked out of their house on their 18th birthday! Apparently this is somewhat common for parents to do. But don't expect to be in your child's life, or good graces, after tossing a teen out to fend for themselves. 

The OP seems to have handled the situation as well as they could, given the utterly bizarre circumstances. They also got plenty of support from commenters, who assured them that the blame lies with their parents.

Funny (Yet Hissterically Accurate) Advice From Experienced Cat Owners To New Cat Owners: ICanHasCheezburger Edition

LOL Cats - Thu, 05/25/2023 - 08:00

Everyone thinks that cat ownership is an incredibly easy thing. Cats are independent, they don't need no human, they do whatever they want whenever they want to do it. But… that's not actually true. There are many things that you need to know and that you learn throughout your time being a cat owner. You learn things like the importance of playing with your cat, and you learn why using squirt bottles can be harmful sometimes, and you learn why cats bite their humans and what it means. There's a lot more to know than you may think.

So, in the spirit of trying to make cats' lives as purrfect as pawssible, we asked you guys to give advice to new cat owners - from the experienced and exasperated to the young and innocent. And although we knew you guys would come up with some awesome advice, we did not expect you to be this heckin' funny about it.

'My stuff was more precious to me than her dignity': Girl steals $12,000 worth of watches and jewelry from her cousin's bedroom, gets caught in the act then offended when he goes through her bag

Fail Blog - Thu, 05/25/2023 - 07:00

When a family member becomes financially successful and is moving forward in life, why is it that hangers-on and fringe members of the family feel entitled to a piece of their success? Your cousin may be buying fancy jewelry and accessories with their new-found cash, but that certainly doesn't entitle you to a piece of their diamond encrusted pie. In this situation, a young man was having a celebratory dinner with his family and friends to celebrate getting good grades and school as well as moving on up in the world. 

Now, OP had a bit of a fashion fetish and spent all of his extra cash, earnings, and game-winning prize money on chains and watches. The gamily new that and saw the celebration as the perfect opportunity to strike. OP's cousins and uncle plotted together to find the perfect time to ransack OP's bedroom and rifle through his belongings, taking the most valuable items for themselves as recompense for sharing a blood line. 

Scroll for the full story on what happened next when OP caught them in the thieving act– with video proof.

'You all agreed to and signed off on [it]': Project Manager fends off moving goalpost trap with superior paper trail and process

Fail Blog - Thu, 05/25/2023 - 06:00

Dealing with changing expectations from your boss or colleagues requires a strategic approach; after all, having all your t's crossed and i's dotted ensures that you have covered yourself when things inevitably hit the fan and they go looking for someone to blame, aiming to hang their own failure's of leadership on the neck of an unprepared scapegoat. 

Despite all of this, Hanlon's Razor still shines through; it's not as if these people are necessarily aware of what they're doing, and it's not as if they're out to specifically target project managers and send them packing—exacting covert vengeance for when a project manager redeveloped their town as a child, leading to the deaths of both their parents. But that makes these people all the more dangerous, their sheer stupid ignorance destroying the careers of framed innocents as their incompetence causes projects to repeatedly fail around them.

This project manager shared an entertaining tale of how they managed to anticipate and identify one of these individuals, being prepared—through the fastidious application of process—with all the necessary paperwork and receipts to defend themselves and deflect the attempt at blame.

'My girlfriend sold my car [...] I am now suing her': Woman sells generations-old car because her BF didn't take care of their cats enough

Fail Blog - Thu, 05/25/2023 - 05:00

Sometimes, people take petty revenge ever so slightly too far.  Here, we have a relationship that is clearly dysfunctional, and it's definitely the fault of both parties in different ways. Sure, the girlfriend's accusations that OOP doesn't take care of their cats enough is one layer, but then there's also this guy's potentially backward view of gender dynamics within their relationship (the number of times he says breadwinner is certainly eye-roll-inducing). But whatever compelled this lady to sell her boyfriend's generations-old car for just $400 and not expect any serious consequences as a result of these actions is baffling no matter how much we may empathize with her situation.

'I Blocked Him': Top Dating App Flops (May 24, 2023)

Fail Blog - Wed, 05/24/2023 - 16:00

Our society is under steady scrutiny, as we are being constantly studied by algorithms whose only objective is to get us to spend as much time on whatever app it is they work for, as possible. So if you've opened Tinder and realized that slowly over time, your options seem to deteriorate, then just know, that makes total sense. They are experts at getting you to keep swiping, in hopes of greener grass, yet always fail to deliver. We're not saying that the algorithm hasn't made mistakes… after all, sometimes people do get married and live happily ever after.

But most of the time, we're the rule and not the exception. The actual swiping isn't even the worst part, it's the unmatching, ghosting, and blocking that happens after the fact that has got us all riled up. When making first impressions, you've gotta be extra careful; after all, you don't know the person you're meeting for the first time, and neither they you. So one off-hand joke and you're diving off the dating cliff.

These dating app flops below serve as a great reminder that we're not alone in our struggle. Scroll down, and enjoy! For more like this, here is last week's collection of funny dating app fails for some extra serotonin.

'Move it to your spot': Karen complains about stowed bag, gets to ride the rest of the journey with it in the seat next to her

Fail Blog - Wed, 05/24/2023 - 15:00

The noble backpack has been used by mankind for centuries, with its usage dating back to ancient times, first likely being used by hunters to carry gear and supplies. Now that pedigree is joined by a new usage: accompanying a Karen on a long journey. If you look, you will find that there is a long and storied history of people becoming great friends with backpacks, "Dora the Explorer" being the most notable example. The famed explorer is now joined by this Karen, who undoubtedly became fast friends with this guy's bag on her long and wearisome journey. At least she said "please…"—right?

'I feel taken advantage of': Car owner refuses to lend his vehicle to single mom after she dents it, neighborhood turns on him

Fail Blog - Wed, 05/24/2023 - 14:00

Always be cautious who you let drive your car. Vehicles are pricey not just to purchase, but also to maintain. After that initial purchase, you still have to fill it up with gas and deal with any fender benders that might occur. That's enough for one person to deal with, but this guy lent his car to his neighbor, and she is far from gentle with his car. 

The OP shared the story with r/AmItheA**hole, seeking judgement for if he's been too harsh about revoking this woman's car privileges. However, it was a near-unanimous vote of "not the a**hole." This guy should definitely enlist his other neighbors to help this woman out next time she asks to take his vehicle out for a spin. Other folks in the comments pointed out that she's even a liability for the OP, since she's proven to be reckless behind the wheel
