    When I was younger, my brother and I used to joke that our dogs were the dogs from the show "2 stupid dogs".

    But now I have seen stupid on a whole other level.

    It's cold and raining so I open the barn up for the horse, I put his food into the bucket inside the stall. Instead of using the door of the barn, which he can fit through and has used a bazillion times, he sticks his head through the window from the outside and tries the eat from the floor. When he couldn't reach HE STARTS SLAMMING HIS BODY INTO THE WALL TRYING TO GET THROUGH THE WINDOW. THE DOOR WAS OPEN! The window was tiny! It's made to fit a head through nothing else.

    It reminded of the EMH episode where Hulk just bursts through the wall in Avengers mansion and Tony is like "WHY DID YOU DO THAT!? THE DOORS OPEN AUTOMATICALLY?"

    Please tell me it's not just my animals that are stupid, anyone else have stupid animal stories? And not silly, but stupid.

    My cat eats rubber bands. I find them in her feces when I clean her box. If one of those blocks her intestines, I'll pay for the operation to get that shit out once. If it happens again, I will have her put down because I won't be willing to pay for the operation over and over and over again and that kind of stupidity shouldn't be allowed to live.

    Hell, I might give her two chances. But third time, well, let's just say I will be very sad.

    Hide them all in your car and see what happens.

    All animals are stupid. Fortunately, some animals just happen to be stupid and delicious, so it all balances out.

    My cat loves to eat plastic bags. He just wants to devour them - he is in heaven if he's allowed to sit in a plastic bag and chew on it until he eats it.

    He then howls at it's painfully passed through his system and in to his crap ... or he throws it up ... and immediately goes to the next plastic bag he can find.

    We blame it on the plastic in cat food a few years back.

    :lolol  When I first got my horse he was out on the grass and a plasic bag blew by and he ate it, I freaked out and called the vet and he was like "oh yeah they do that all the time, it's fine as long as it passes". What is it with animals eating plastic bags? He actually told me that he heard of a baby horse that ate a garbage bag and well it was big, so when it came out the other end they had to pull the rest out. *shudders*

    One of my cats is simultaneously very brilliant and incredibly stupid. He figured out how to turn off lights and open closed doors, yet he eats leaves, bits of grass, and other plant matter whenever he gets the chance, even though it makes him throw up every single time. He also loves chewing on things like paper and the straps of bags, and enjoys licking wires and cords.

    I have two cats. One who is both grumpy and old... but intelligent.
    And the other one. Who has got to be one of the most retarded animals I've ever laid eyes on.
    Give me a moment to think of a good example that does her stupidity justice.

    Grass and leaves help them with digestion. They actually sell grass just for cats at pet shops. http://www.care2.com/greenliving/why-do-cats-eat-grass.html

    Flexible plastics, particularly the cheap ones like grocery bags, contain animal fats so to a cat or dog that plastic smells like food.

    I had a cat who liked to eat rubber bands, plastic straws, present ribbons, just because he liked how they felt in his mouth. I just kept them out of his reach and the Bitter Apple handy for those I couldn't. My current cat chews plastic bags and cardboard boxes just to get a reaction out of me.

    Horses...who knows! I had a friend once who had to keep her horse from eating rocks.

    I catch my cat trying to eat plastic bags all the time. I always yell at him and push him away but he does it anyways. I never leave them out unless I am putting away grocieries or cleaning his litter so it is easy to predict, but annoying all the same.

    I remember a former roommate's pug and his old 55 inch rear projection HDTV. We were watching TV when a beer commercial came on. Horses drawing a carriage showed and the pug started barking. For whatever reason, he couldn't contain himself and he leapt off the couch, ran to the TV and jumped as if the screen was a portal into the commercial. The pug's flat face met with the flat surface of the screen. The pug fell to his butt (literally) and looked back at us as if to say "what just happened?"

    My cat is retarded, but it's head is hard as a rock so it's cool.

    Sleeps all day, cocaine all night.
