List Rules Vote up the things you wish your pet could understand

We like to think our pets understand us and we understand them. After all, you think of your dog, cat, hamster, or other furry friend as your best friend and closest companion. They must understand you in some fundamental way, right? Well, yes and no. Your pet probably understands you love them - and loves you in return - but they are animals. They do not speak our language. One word commands and hand signals are fine, but what if our pets could actually understand us? If you could explain something to your pet - in a language 100% decipherable to them - what would it be?

If you had 10 seconds to talk to your dog, what would you say? If you could quickly explain an issue to your cat, what issue would you raise? Would you be practical and tell them to stop scratching at your door or waking you up for food in the morning? Or would you go emotional and really drive home how much you love them and want to keep them safe? Would you ask that your pet please start respecting you? What would you say?

What would you tell your pet, if you could tell them anything? Vote up the things that you wish your pet could understand below!
