15 Times Pets Scared Their Owners Into Believing They’re Evil Geniuses

Some people say that animals are stupid, but those of us who live with them know that really isn’t true.

In fact, sometimes it’s a little scary to realize smart they can actually be. For example, my sneaky dogs know that they aren’t allowed on the couch, but when nobody’s around, it’s a different story. While I’ve never caught them on this particular piece of furniture, I find their fur on it whenever I come home after going out.

These 15 baffled Redditors can relate, because they all have similar stories about the times they witnessed their pets being much more intelligent than they get credit for.

1. “We had a dachshund growing up and he could tell when my mom was going to have a seizure. He would start circling her over and over, barking. Ironically, he ended up with epilepsy himself but it didn’t shorten his lifespan. They helped each other out. He lived 17.5 years! I miss that dog.” — autumnx

2. “I have a three-month-old pup who got dirt in her eye one day. The eye kept tearing up and she held it partially shut for a few hours. During that time I felt really bad for her and handed out a lot of treats. Since then, when I am eating, she begs by winking that eye with a tiny whimper. Her wink is nonstop. If she’s called by someone else in the home she looks at them with perfect eyes. I get the ‘broken eye’. Once she gets the goods — fully working eyes.” — FlickerAndFlicker

3. “My birds steal batteries out of electronics. Remotes, beard trimmers, fire alarms, you name it. They don’t do anything with the batteries, just take them out and then laugh at me and dance when I find them. Conures are dickheads, but I love them.” — Pyrhhus

5. “I had a yabbie in my freshwater tank that is a genius. I one day watched him gather some food pellets into his cave, wait for the fish to eat the rest then a few minutes later, place them in front of the cave entrance. Then he attacked and ate a fish that came to eat the pellets.” — cfb_rolley

7. “When I get asked to do some things, I’ll groan jokingly and do the thing anyway. Now, when I call my dog while she was sleeping or if I accidentally nudge her at the foot of the bed, then she groans with attitude like I would. Kind of adorable, kind of freaky.” — ProN00bMan

9. “I had a cat that learned how to open the fridge, and then my dog started begging my cat for food. And then the cat started getting into the fridge just to feed the dog. I patiently await the day where my pets decide to overthrow me and have me fixed. I’m not fighting it. That’ll only make it worse in the long run.” — wererat2000

11. “My cat figured out how to fill up my bathtub. He learned how to close the drain and would turn the water handle and would just sit there and watch the tub slowly fill up. It took me weeks to figure out what was going on.” — Mr-Havera

13. “Not a current pet, but a dog I had as a teenager. Dog jumps up on the couch. ‘No, you’re not allowed on the couch, go lie in your bed.’ Dog leaves the room. A moment later he returns with his bed and throws it on the couch. Gets back up on the couch in his bed and stares at me. — aRealGoose

15. “One of my cats learned how to turn the internet off. I mean, he realized everybody goes crazy when he goes behind the TV stand and messes up with the wires. So when we’re not paying enough attention to him (usually if we’re on our phones or the computer), he just unplugs the router. I don’t think he knows how much power he has.” — claustrophobiic
