These naughty pets are enough to make the most devoted animal lovers despair.
In a series of snaps shared online, exasperated owners have captured their pets’ very worst behaviour – after arriving home to find their pooches in the toilet, cats hiding in the fridge and even a hamster making its way through a family-size pack of biscuits.
Other mischievous pooches have caused long-lasting damage by destroying their homes, as well as their humans’ possessions including furniture, clothes and even shoe collections.
One brazen mutt even went as far as to munch on his owner’s sofa after he was left home alone.
