Animal lovers point at their pets – and share snaps of their hilarious reactions

ANIMAL-LOVERS have been sharing hilarious photos of confused dogs, cats and birds online – as part of International Point At Your Pet Day.

A new craze swept social media yesterday (Thurs) which resulted in dozens of owners pointing a finger at their pets and uploading their reaction.

The reasoning behind the bizarre craze is unclear, though it seems to have been started by a London-based cartoonist.

‘Helen G’, from Newcastle, uploaded a picture of her black and white cat trying to eat her middle finger as she pointed at it.

And a budgie, belonging to Jennie Gyllblad from Bath, also looked extremely unimpressed at his owner’s attempt to join in.

There is even a Respect For Chickens Day and World Rabies Day.
