We pet owners have a lot to be happy about, but there are few things that irritate us to no end. (Hey, we’re only human.) Here are 12 of of those things:

...

1. When we see homeless pets and we know there's nothing we can do in the moment to help them.

8. When people body shame our pets. You wouldn't say "someone's looking a little tubby these days" to your friend, right?
