Dogs and cats may not be able to verbally express their gratitude to us, but they do have one thing going for them – they are amazing gift-givers. Who doesn’t love waking up to a freshly-killed mouse in their bed?
For both canines and felines, the ‘tradition’ of gathering the fruits of one’s hunting expedition and presenting them to their superior runs deep in their blood. Whether they’ve caught a toy, a random object, or a small animal, the hunt will fill them with great pride, and by bringing their catch to you and thus sharing that pride, they communicate a sense of kinship with you. So, while you may be horrified by that dead frog your kitty just dropped on your pillow, know that it wouldn’t be there if your furbaby didn’t love you with all their heart.
Scroll down to see the weirdest, funniest, and sometimes scariest gifts people’s pets have brought them, and vote for the ones that you would be grateful to receive.
