Whether it’s your dog excited to see you when you get home or your cat curling up in your lap, there’s nothing like the joy of owning a pet. But they can sometimes test this love. Photos shared online reveal the highs and lows of being a pet owner!

1. What's on the telly?

You’d rather your feline friend curled up in your lap as you watch the TV, but they have other ideas about where they will sit. And what they will let you watch.

2. Let's take a selfie!

All you want to do is take a nice selfie of you and your pooch to share on Facebook. Fido, however, just wants to cover your face in doggy kisses.

3. Egg-cellent choice

You’ve spent a fortune on cat beds, not to mention the comfy beds and chairs freely available to sit on around the house. But no. Your feline resident prefers to sit on a tray of eggs instead.

4. What's a wall without a window?

Weren’t you thinking of getting a new door? Well, your canine companion has made sure that it is now at the top of your shopping list.
