I feel very very bad doing this list as I am a massive animal lover and my cat is my baby, but there are a lot of scary animals out there! Like, it was a list waiting to happen! I am going to do this list, but pleaseeeeeeee, GET A PET IF YOU CAN, they are the best things ever. I don't like kids but I love my fluffy baby... Welcome to the list of pets that could, but hopefully will not, put you off getting one.
Starting the list is the pet that first comes to mind when I think of 'scary pets', but I may be a little biased as this certain animal does have a scary resemblance to my own cat; Church from Pet Sematary. Church is a lovely cat, he's a very handsome boy, (obviously, not being biased again..), he's lovely until he is ploughed down outside his families house. Losing an animal is a very very sad thing, but you know what you shouldn't do if it happens to you? Bury the animal in a pet Cemetery!
Poor Church. Buried there not by choice and so he comes back as some killer cat who definitely doesn't want cuddles anymore... He's now a killer cat who wants meat.
Lesson here, if you have a cat, or want one, do it, just don't bury them in this type of Cemetery... Please.
Next on the list, another very loved fluffy animal and man's best friend - the dog, more specific; Cujo. Now St Bernard's are known to be helpful, loving dogs that are your hero if you ever get stuck at the top of a mountain, that ends if they are bitten by a rabid bat though. Cufo was your everyday lovely friendly dog until he decides to chase a bat into a bat cave, which the bat happily declines by biting him... Right at the front of the noggin on the nose with rabies... Goodbye cuddly Cujo and hello, killer Cujo who wants you for dinner. And a family stuck in a car with Cujo outside isn't ideal... Don't do rabies kids...
I can also see a Stephen King pattern starting this list..
And the Stephen King pattern ends here it turns out.
Next on the list are birds, all birds as the next entry is the classic film The Birds. This film I think put lots of people off birds, pet birds, birds outside, any birds. People all of a sudden felt nervous as they walked past a group of crows or even pigeons if you're English like me. And the thing with this film, is that no one even knew why the birds changed and all of a suddenly turned into feathery killers. Like Jason fell in oil and then a fluffy cushion... Killers right under your nose and eating your seeds and stale bread in your gardens.. Who knew?!
The next one on the list are considered pets by some, others would say they are farm animals - I count that kind of still as pets, depending on if they are forever or are going to be dinner.... Black Sheep is next. I like sheep. I always have. They are just fluffy clouds with legs and always look quite friendly...until this film came along. In Black Sheep, not only are the sheep man eating, they also turn people into man eating sheep too, like zombie sheep really...
Now I wonder if all those jumpers I own came from a killer, zombie style sheep or not...
Next up is the cute little rat, that has at least two films on it, but not in the best light. Rats have a bad run already, everyone thinks they are disgusting and diseased - well, most anyway, and these two films don't help that at all. The two films are Ben, and Willard, both with similar story lines, both about a human making friends with a bunch of angry killer rats, the main point here - the killer rats. Not only that, but a bunch of them. I know that most people, if they have rats, they wouldn't have a whole bunch of them, but still, one rat can be a killer. But rats are nice, please don't hate them all...
The next one is a bit of a weird one... I swear I am not that weird as a person, or when I was a child. When I was young, I loved bugs, I mean, I still love bugs, but when I was young I would have them as pets. I had woodlise, I had ants, I had some of those cute little swimming dinosaurs that looked like flying saucers, and mainly snails. Snails is the main part of these paragraph... Sadly, there are not a lot of horror films about snails, only horror films that have snails in them, like Aenigma, so, I am going to second best thing after snails; SLUGS. And the film Slugs is a good'un.. It's a very very good B movie.. Take that as you will.
Slugs have teeth in this film, TEETH. That's a little bit scary, I mean, just carry salt around with you and you should be fine around killer slugs, but still. If they get into your body, you will turn into what looks like jelly and cream.. mushed. Terrifying, I know.
Okay, so this one is probably the least scary out of all of them.. But they could still eat you. Which is a lot worst than when you accidentally step on one of the poor buggers without socks on...
Anyway, thats your list, please do not let this put you off animals/pets. Don't go be putting Fluffy the bird outside because you think it might peak your eyes out... Or Floppsy in another room because you saw the film about killer rabbits that I forgot to mention... Pets/animals are some of the best things in this entire world! We need them. And as Oscar Wilde once said, " The more time I spend with people, the more I like my dog". I hear ya, Oscar!!!
