You ever see that movie The Secret Life of Pets? Yeah, me neither. Nobody did. Wait – I’m being told that it actually made over 800 million dollars and got a sequel?! So. Scratch that, I guess.

Anyway, I’ve always imagined that the actual secret life of pets is just them trying to see what they can get away with chewing on while we’re not in the room. They’re little stinkers, every one of them. But where would we be without them?

At the end of the day, the animals in our lives are the greatest, and deserve to be celebrated. With memes.

12. The missing links

He’s just chillin’ in there.

11. Eyes on you

They judge from above, as in the days of old.

10. Big fan

Doesn’t matter if it’s the middle of January, this is a must.

9. Sweet freedom!

Turns out I’m just lazy. Who’d have thunk?

8. Insert coin

Friggin’ DLC again.

7. Clucked up

My son’s beak is too short and too wet, but I still love him.

6. Fetch me a drink

Slobber on the rocks.

5. Welcome, traveler

I’d save up all my in-game currency for him.

4. I scream

Hand over the treats and nobody gets hurt.

3. On the attack

That is one angry cloud you got there.

2. In tents

They already look like they’re having bitter fights about who gets to use it when.

1. Expensive taste

“Don’t try to pander to me, John.”

I tried to show my foster cat this meme collection and he just derped at me and walked away. He’s magic. All pets are magic.

What’s your fur baby like?
