We were named "most likely to be hella extra" in high school, but that's a lie. We're only moderately extra. No, that title really should have gone to our pets. It should have been split equally between our cats and dogs, because nobody's more extra than they are. Like, when our cat brings us a dead bird, and acts like she slayed a dragon for us. Or when our dog gets up on the couch, even though he knows he's not supposed to, and pretends to be asleep, so we can't scold him.
Pets make life a lot more interesting, and a big part of that is because they're major drama queens. That's why we can't help falling in love with these 15 hilarious cats and dogs who are so extra.
15 If he can't see it, it doesn't exist
This dog has little kid logic. You know how when you were a youngster, if you thought you heard a "monster" in your room, you would hide under the covers, because, you reasoned, if you couldn't see it, it didn't exist? Well, this dog is the same way. Yeah, he made a mess. He tore up that feather boa, and he ripped into that bag of potting soil. But, if he refuses to look at the chaos he created, then it's not really there.
This doggie likes to get into trouble. Clearly. And he doesn't seem to give AF about making more work for his master. But, is he still a good boy? Yes. Yes, he is. All dogs are good boys, except for the ones who are good girls.
14 The remake of "From Here to Eternity" looks amazing
The all-cat remake of From Here to Eternity looks amazing. At first, we were kind of skeptical. How could a couple of tabby cats replace Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr? And how in the world could they possibly top the original film's iconic beach scene? But, when the director tweeted this picture, we instantly changed our mind. The new From Here to Eternity is going to be just as good, if not better, than the original.
We like this trend. Let's remake every classic movie with cats. North by Northwest, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Gone with the Wind, Mildred Pierce. Those movies are great all on their own, but now, after seeing this picture, we can't help but feel they'd be a lot better if they were remade with cats.
13 Doggo is fed up with your lies
This doggo is so extra, and he is so done with your bullsh*t. Look, just throw the damn ball, or don't. Stop pretending to throw it just to make him look like an idiot. This husky has had about enough of your petty human antics. Well, that's fine. It's okay. It's all good. If you want to keep trying to trick him, he'll just have to find some way to get back at you. Say, that sure is a lovely pair of Louboutin heels. It would be a real shame if some scorned dog were to come along and... chew them to pieces.
Dogs are patient creatures, but even they get fed up sometimes. So, be careful what you do to them, because if that anger boils over, you'll be sorry.
12 You disappoint her
Hey, you! Come back here. What's going on? What did you do to her? You had better tell us right now, before we lose our temper. Did you eat the last slice of pizza without offering to split it with her? You did, didn't you, you filthy human scum? Well, we hope you're happy with yourself. We hope that last cold slice of Domino's pepperoni pizza was worth the look of betrayal on this precious angel's face. You make us sick.
Ma'am, did you know that we can have you arrested for this? Stealing the last slice of pizza from a cat is a criminal offense. In order to really ensure that you've learned your lesson, you are no longer allowed to eat pizza. Maybe next time you'll think before you do something so heartless.
11 The real Sleeping Beauty
If this dog's name isn't Aurora, and if she isn't cast for the title role in the all-dog, live-action version of Sleeping Beauty, we're going to be mighty disappointed. We mean, we're glad Hollywood filmmakers took our advice, and started doing remakes of beloved movies with pets. But, if they don't get this Disney princess in the making for their film, mark our words, it's going to bomb at the box office.
Look at this girl. She's adorable. And even when she's asleep, she's still more extra than the majority of the Earth's population could ever even hope to be. You have to admire her dedication to her craft, because we can't imagine how difficult it must be to cover yourself up with a blanket when you don't have opposable thumbs.
10 Same, TBH
Does it get any more extra than this cat, whose owner took her to the vet to check on her upcoming litter, only to discover that the mama to be wasn't a mama-to-be at all, she was just fat? We contend that there is not. This cat's level of extra-ness has transcended beyond her own consciousness, and has entered the realm of her subconsciousness. She's being extra without deliberately trying to be extra. She's reached extra nirvana.
We hate to admit it, but we could see the same thing happening to us. We could see having our owner take us to the vet for an ultrasound, only to discover that we're not expecting a baby; we just pigged out a little too much on Ben & Jerry's over the weekend.
9 Such remarkable talent
Okay, we want some answers, here. How can this corgi possibly have a green thumb when dogs don't even have thumbs to begin with? Don't get us wrong, she's cute and adorable and all, but this is an outrage! There she is, with a figurative green thumb and no actual thumbs, and here we are with no figurative green thumb, and two actual thumbs. We're the ones who should be expert gardeners, not this über extra corgi. Where is the justice?!
So, this dog can grow pumpkins just by eating the seeds and sh*tting them out, meanwhile, every time we so much as look at a plant, it dies? Darn. Well, maybe we can hire this corgi to come do some landscaping for us. We'll pay her in Milk-Bones and Beggin' Strips.
8 Couch cat
This Tumblr user says their cat kept meowing until they came to look at him. We like to think his meows roughly translated to, "Mom! Hey, Mom! Come look at what I can do! Mom, are you watching? Look, Mom! I can fit under the couch! Isn't this great, Mom? Aren't I so extra?"
Ugh. This is disgusting. Look at this precious dork's face. Look at how freaking perfect he is. Despicable. Who does he think he is, that he can just lay under the couch like that while looking so cute and proud of himself? And what does he think? That we're just going to sit here and gawk at how unbelievably cute he is? Well, he's got another think coming! Oh, who are we kidding? He's too sweet for us to be mad at him.
7 We'll take that as a yes
Boy, is this extra doggo going to be disappointed when his owner finishes that sentence. He just thought she was going to say, "Want to go for a walk?" What she was actually going to ask him was, "Do you want to go for a waltz?"
Nobody loves to walk as much as dogs. Period. And that's really saying something, because dogs are pretty much stoked as all get out about everything, save for vet visits. Can you imagine the amount of energy you would have to possess to be excited about everything all of the time? And then, on top of all to that, to somehow summon even more excitement about being able to go on a walk? It can't be done. Not by us humans. But, dogs? They've got the power.
6 No more action for you, Mr. Smooth
Wow. This cat sure gets around! He must be some kind of suave, charming son of a gun to have gotten more than 10 cats pregnant. He's got the moves.
We wonder how Mr. Smooth here is going to cover all of that child support. He's gotten more than 10 female cats pregnant, and the average number of kittens per litter is four, so that's at least 40 children who are going to need food, litter, toys, etc. There's a lot to pay for, and those single mothers that he knocked up and left shouldn't have to bust their humps to cover the costs all on their own. He needs to man up and contribute to his offsprings' upbringing. We hope he's got a high paying job. He's going to need it.
5 You can't kennel the cute
One of our favorite things is dogs who have no concept of their size. Little dogs who think they're the size of lions, and big dogs who think they could fit in a teacup. It's consistently hilarious and adorable, and for that reason, your honor, we submit that our client, dogs who don't know how big they are, is the best thing ever. We have no further questions for the defendant, and we rest our case. Thank you for your time.
You go, sweet pupper. You should be proud of yourself for cramming your entire too-big body into that too-small space. We know we would be proud if we could fit into such a small spot. But, alas, we cannot relate to this big/small dog. We can only relate to the too-fat/not actually pregnant cat.
"Hooman! Consarnit, hooman, where are you?! I require assistance! The clouds are leaking! You can't leave me out here in the moisture! Hooman, are you there? Come quickly and let me in! I can't get wet, my fur will get all poofy, and I'll have to spend four hours licking it to smooth it out again! HAAALLLPP!!!"
This cat's reaction to a slight drizzle of rain is so over the top, we can't stand it. You could attend a Shakespearean school for dramatic arts, you could spend tens of millions of dollars on acting lessons and voice coaching and all of that jazz, and you still wouldn't be able to come close to this cat's level of extra. No one, man or animal, has ever been this upset about anything.
3 This dog will deliver justice
We're big believers in the concept of, "If dogs like you, you're a good person. But, if dogs don't like you, you're horrible." See, dogs have a way of finding the best in everything and everyone. That's why we love them so much. They're so positive, always looking on the bright side, always ready to have a good time even in the worst of circumstances. Dogs are full of life. They're 100 percent pure cinnamon rolls, too precious for this world.
Dogs see the good in everyone, so if a dog looks at you and can't find the good, you're a despicable human being who deserves to be thrown in a cold, damp dungeon for the remainder of your days. And this dog is going to see to it that that happens.
2 Vote 4 Stubbs
Uh, excuse us? Are you saying that we could have had a cat for our mayor all of this time? Well, why the heck didn't we know that?! It would have been nice if one of you people saw fit to tell us that we could elect pets to be our public officials! This is a great idea. And look, the residents of Mayor Stubbs' community have nothing but praise for him. This proves society needs cat politicians.
They say that cats are evil, but we still think they would do a better job running the government than politicians. Which begs the question, what does that say about politicians? If cats are evil, and they do a better job of running the community/state/country, how terrible are politicians because they can't? Makes ya think.
1 Judgemental dog is judgemental
This dog is so far above us. Not just literally, because he's on a balcony, but figuratively, too. He knows he's better than everyone else. That's why he's got such a disdainful look. It's like he's saying, "Ugh. Another beautiful sunny day. I utterly loathe beautiful sunny days. Oh, and look. Here come the drudges of society, to stare upon my unparalleled elegance. Well, look at me all you like. Feast your eyes upon my superior good looks, and try to imagine what it would be like to not be the basic b*tches you all are."
Ouch. Our feelings are hurt. Hey, what gives, anyway? You're a dog! You're not supposed to be cynical! That's for cats. Stick to being sweet and adorable, instead. Oh, but don't stop being extra. We love that.
