We all love our pets, but let’s face it: sometimes they can be real jerks. And that goes for animals of every kind. Most people think that cats are usually the ones who are jerks, and they’re right to a degree. But don’t discount other animals, too.

Yup, everything from dogs to lizards to birds to fish can be jerks. Whether that means playing too rough, making a mess, or stealing your food, they know we love them — and they have no problem taking advantage of that.

So, what are we to do when our pets act like jerks? Well, there’s not much you can do. Clean up their messes, snap a photo, and remember that you love them, even when they’re on their worst behavior. After all, the mess won’t last, but that picture and memory will.

Of course, if you’re thinking about adopting a pet for the first time, you might want to look through these photos before you do. Sure, not all of them involve the destruction of property, but a lot of them do. If you’re renting your home, just know you might not get your security deposit back.

Is it worth it? Sure. It’s hard to stay mad at these lovable pets.
