Dreadful sorry about the intrusive Tripod ads. We have pulled up stakes and moved to an ad-free environment*.

Join us in our new space by closing the panel on the left then clicking this link:

If the unwanted sidebar window on the left opens up along with it, you can get rid of the offending portion by clicking the "x" in its upper right-hand corner. Click on the actual window on the left, not on the explanatory graphic below.

* Ok, there are a few small ads at the bottom of the main page, BUT Top5 Pets directly benefits from them. We keep them unobtrusive.

                     NOTE FROM THE LIST VET:

     British scientists are training dogs to sniff out signs
        of prostate cancer in urine samples. Finally, all
       that crotch-sniffing pays off! How do other annoying
                  pet behaviors benefit mankind?

           The Top 9 Benefits of Annoying Pet Behaviors

 9> Brutally attacking mailmen: Keeps those bills away!

 8> Being ignored or treated with contempt by your cat: Consider
    it "Married Life 101," Chester.

 7> Dragging butt across the carpet: Generates enough electricity
    to operate a small appliance.

 6> Shedding on the couch: The sweaters sell *great* at the local

 5> Eating their own poop: Saves you money on buying their food,
    plus it's recycling!

 4> All-night barking: Keeps you awake so you can meet your
    deadline tomorrow.

 3> Hanging head out of car window: Keeps other drivers from
    coming too close and cutting you off.

 2> Chewing up remote: Plastic and metal embedded in poop 
    increases its structural rigidity, making it easier to 
    scoop up.

       and the Number 1 Benefit of Annoying Pet Behaviors...

 1> Birds molting: Free feathers for your Mardi Gras costume.
