We Asked Our Editors: What is a Pet Question You’ve Googled Recently?

Our staff Googles weird stuff. :/

By Kristyn Pomranz

You know what’s great about the internet? (Besides bottomless access to viral videos of kittens that think they’re bunnies and dogs that are obsessed with belly scratches?) The limitless access to information. Got a question? GOOGLE IT. Got a real weird question? STILL GOOGLE IT. Got a question that’s maybe rhetorical or that most definitely doesn’t have a real answer? GOOGLE IT ANYWAY, YOU WILL STILL GET A RESULT.

After recently Googling some very strange questions about dogs and cats as part of the pets content editorial process, we got to wondering: What is the last pet questions our editors Googled? Their responses did not disappoint.
