All pet owners wonder what our furry friends do when we’re not around. We know there are probably lots of naps, and maybe the occasional stroll around the house — just to make sure everything’s okay of course — but hopefully that’s all our pets get up to while we’re gone.

Every now and then, though, we know for sure that our animals stir up some trouble, and when that happens they’re not very good at covering their tracks! Check out these 23 hilariously mischievous pets who were caught red-pawed!
