PETA Sticks Up for Dogs and Cats With ‘Human Shaming’ Photos

Published by Michelle Kretzer.

Animals give us all their love, and what do some guardians give them in return? They “shame” them on social media for a few “likes.” Often, the animals being shamed were just reacting to something that their guardians did. Cats rightfully refuse to use litterboxes that haven’t been cleaned. Dogs chew on things when they’re teething or left at home alone and aren’t given something else to do. And animals get into tempting foods that have been placed within their reach. So PETA is turning the tables and showing humans what would happen if the shoe were on the other paw: human shaming.

Would we be so quick to shame our animals if they could call us out, too?

Animal guardians can check out PETA President Ingrid Newkirk’s books 250 Things You Can Do to Make Your Cat Adore You and Let’s Have a Dog Party! 20 Tail-Wagging Celebrations to Share With Your Best Friend for loads of ways to enrich your companions’ lives.
