2023 so far has been rich in TikTok trends. We had the fascination with the Roman Empire, loving to be a hater, making our lives look like a Wes Anderson movie, and many, many more things that a single person simply cannot keep track of.

Recently yet another trend took off, and this one is hilariously adorable. People are sharing videos of their pets doing silly or embarrassing things to the tune of Hamilton’s “Dear Theodosia.”

The combination is brilliant! Sometimes all you need to brighten up your day is Lin-Manuel Miranda serenading a dog that has its head stuck in an empty jar of peanut butter.

Scroll down to see the most hilarious takes on the trend below.

Here are the funniest examples of this recent trend

Pet quirks can be adorable, hilarious, and plain weird. Many of them, though, are easy to explain. Take, for example, the seemingly ubiquitous passion that cats have for drinking tap water. 

There are a few layers to this obsession, but the most obvious answer here is the fact that tap water simply tastes better. Just like we all prefer fresh, cool water from the tap, cats also like how refreshing it is compared to the stale water that’s been sitting in their bowl for hours.

    The other factor can be the placement of the water bowl. Your cat might not like that it’s somewhere near a wall, which puts them in a vulnerable position as they can’t see what’s happening behind them.

    Another instinctual thing is a cat’s preference for flowing water instead of still because of contaminants. In the wild, streams and rivers are the ideal water source as it often is cleaner than what you can find in ponds and pools.

    Another very typical cat thing is loving boxes. Many pet owners jokingly complain that whatever kind of toy they get for their pet, it cannot compare to the box that the toy came in. This might be because cats like the safety of a small, enclosed space. It’s a comfortable spot where they can hide and feel in control of their environment.

    The feline love for boxes is also tied to their love for warmth. You see, the ideal temperature that cats feel the most comfortable in is around 99°F, way higher than what feels good for us. So, they look for their own ways to keep themselves warm, whether it is laying in the sun or confining themselves into a tight space.

    I've had to take the flap of every litter box I've ever owned, I think I attract the stupidest of the cat species because no cat I've ever lived with could use a litter box with a flap. Meanwhile a lot of my doors in the house have catflaps, and the cats use those just fine.

    Boxes are ideal for this warming up ritual as cardboard is a great insulator. However, they’re not the only option. Just like this list shows you, cats can make themselves comfortable in bags, plastic wraps and strollers.

    Of course, cats are not the only ones that have weird habits. Dogs also have some silly behavioral quirks. One of the most adorable ones that’s really appreciated on the web is their so-called zoomies. This is when a dog is running around all excited because they are, in fact, very excited and happy.

    Jar-cat hybrid. Or a cat that has actions that resembles mine way too much.

    Eating grass is sometimes quoted as a weird thing that dogs do. There are many theories as to why it’s a thing but no real concrete explanation. Some experts believe that it has something to do with dogs needing extra fiber, others think they might simply like the taste.

    If your dog loves to hump everything and everyone, know that they do it simply because it feels good. But be careful as it also can be a way to assert dominance and show aggression. Either way, if the behavior is constant, be sure to check with the vet as it might cause some back problems for your dog.

    Our little Tabitha not only does this, she will also bite random bottles, so when you go to grab a water, you risk getting one that will spurt water like a waterfall when it’s squeezed. We have to put ALL our extra water and soda bottles in cabinets now, because she started biting the gallon jugs of water too.
