If you own a pet, you know the joys of coming home from a long day of work and being greeted by a wagging tail and sloppy kiss or, in the case of cats, a solemn nod in your general direction. But as soon as the lovefest is over, and you’re finally able to get passed the front door, you realize just what Fido and Fifi have been up to all day long: tearing the place apart. Whether knocking over the trash can or making toilet paper confetti, dogs, cats and even ferrets love to run amok just as soon as our backs are turned. Of course, they’d never admit it. Nope. Never. The animals in the photos above want us to believe they’re not guilty, but we know better. — By Stephanie Brown
