Our furry family members are perfect angels. Nothing but adorable bundles of cuteness, incapable of doing any wrongs that might upset their parents.

Okay…you’re probably laughing.

I get it. As a dog and cat mom, I totally understand. For all the snuggles and preciousness, our cattos and doggos can be rulebreakers of epic proportions.

The levels of destruction our furry loves can achieve truly knows no know bounds. Dog snoots and kitty paws can destroy things in ways we never thought possible and we’re often left shaking our heads. And while we may grow irritated with the actions of naughty fur balls, we’re fools for our buddies and quickly over our ire.

Even if our kits and pups are just being bad to be bad!

Like these two, they don’t mind stealing the covers from you as long as they’re comfy…


Plus, destruction at the paws of a kitty or doggie makes for a great photo opportunity. And plenty of fur parents have captured their cats and dogs in infamy when they’ve just grown tired of being good.

Check out these naughty cats and dogs who don’t want to be angels anymore…

“They were both sleeping 3 minutes ago”. Yep, but the urge to be bad strikes in a moment…

Yeah, because a cat never does any wrong!
