Have you ever caught your pet trying to steal food? If you are here, then it means that you most likely have.

As funny as it sounds, pets do not regard objects as "yours/theirs." In fact, most animals are quite opportunistic. However, house pets can be trained to learn that some items are off-limits. Still, most of them, even when they are made aware of this, will still attempt to steal food when out of sight, and then run away, concealing themselves while doing so, if they perceive an opportunity.

With that being said, I asked some Pandas to share pictures of their pets being caught at the "crime scene."

I had one that would do this, and taught all her babies to do this, and then they'd leave little sticky footprints everywhere!. They were very partial to fruit juice.

In summer, I put a few ice cubes in the water bowl. The youngest cat is especially fascinated by them. Initially she tried licking them directly. Then she discovered the water around them is nice and cold, so now she just drinks around them, changing position as they move on top of the water. Tabitha is a strange and wonderful cat.
