If you love your pet despite all of his/her foibles, you’re not alone. 80 percent of pet owners feel that, despite the frustration their pets may cause, they wouldn’t change a thing about their pets.

1000 pet owners were asked about their “pet peeves”...what bothers them most about their pets, and here’s what they said:

  1. Being sick on the carpet
  2. Waiting by the door to be let out – then deciding against it when you open the door
  3. Leaving fur/hair everywhere
  4. Waking you up in the middle of the night
  5. Begging for food when you cook
  6. Making strange sounds in their sleep
  7. Refusing to go out in the rain
  8. Walking across your laptop when you're trying to work
  9. Knocking something off a shelf
  10. Bringing a live animal back into the house
  11. Stealing food
  12. Howling or meowing in the middle of the night
  13. Constantly trying to get into a cupboard or another area they have no need to go into
  14. Ignoring the toys you bought and chewing on everything they're not allowed to instead
  15. Stealing food from the countertop when your back is turned
  16. Jumping on you when covered in mud
  17. Walking muddy footprints across the kitchen counter
  18. Chewing a shoe or slipper
  19. Lying on your head when you're sleeping
  20. Rolling around in fox poo
  21. Licking the butter off your toast when your back is turned
