There are days when it feels like the world is going against you. You’re late for work, and the keys have just fallen into the drain hole. But day-breaking fails have been well documented in the history of humankind, and there’s a silent agreement not to talk about ‘em too much. Unless it’s the misfortune of others and in that case, you may wanna hit Bored Panda’s previous compilations herehere, and here.

But what hasn’t been chronicled that well is animals going through a rough day, and we are about to change that. You heard me right. Our beloved furry companions have vile days too and they’re just as painfully funny. Squirrels, horses, doggos, they've all had their fair share of 24 hours turned nightmare.

So get some popcorn ready 'cause you’re about to see what a bad day looks like in the animal kingdom. And trust me, just because they don't have keys to fall into a drain hole doesn't mean they have it easier.

Bored Panda reached out to Karen Johnson, a doctor of veterinary medicine, certified canine rehabilitation practitioner, and the co-founder of VIP Vet Visit, who shared her expertise on pets dealing with stressful situations. Because apparently, it’s not only us who get our blood up to a boiling temperature from time to time.

Karen explained that every pet handles stress differently, but it’s important to notice what your particular pet does when they’re having hard times. Having said that, some pets do, in fact, cope with stress better than others.

“Dogs seem to be better equipped to handle stressful situations than cats,” the doctor explained. “Cats,” on the other hand, “very often can make themselves ill due to stress or have behavioral problems such as urinating outside the litter box.”

Often, it's people who add some fire to animals' stress levels. “It is very noticeable that if an owner is worried or stressed, the pet becomes anxious, nervous, and stressed as well. They can sense your emotions.”

Imagine if your pet saw you reacting like the world is turning against you after your car keys got into the drain hole—chances are, he would be stressed out too.

The canine rehabilitation practitioner warned owners to look out for these signs of stress in pets: panting, shaking, lip licking, yawning, whining, pacing, hiding and shedding.

“If you notice any of these behaviors, you should stay calm and relaxed,” Karen suggested. Only when you’re feeling calm yourself can you go on to the next step of finding out what triggers averse emotions in your furry friend.
