You didn't think the animals were about to let us humans have all the fun at the Winter Olympics, now did you? From party-crashing pups to death-defying felines, these furballs brought the weird, the wild and, yes, the adorable to Sochi.

You know what they say: When it rains – or, likewise, when a Beluga whale sprays water at you – it pours.
This little guy learned that the hard way – not once, but twice – when he visited China's Hangzhou Polar Ocean Park in the country's Zhejiang province. (Watch the video above.) There, the youngster encountered the overzealous (or, perhaps, delightfully sassy) mammal. It was not very kind.
The real take-away here: Sometimes, life throws things your way, and it's not always pleasant.

Oh c'mon, not again.
Mere weeks after most of the country battled through the polar vortex, which itself followed winter storm Hercules, another serious set of snowfall has struck the East Coast thanks to winter storm Janus.
Freezing temperatures and slippery sidewalks are here again ... not to mention cold paws and frosty fur.

It's time to come clean. Here at PEOPLE Pets, there's a certain animal kingdom stereotype we've sometimes helped promulgate: That cats are jerks.
But in light of new evidence, we've decided to amend our stance. Turns out, cats aren't the only ones who can sometimes make life at home for their owners a living nightmare. Dogs are just as guilty of it. And the ones we've brought to your attention below, they might even be doing it on purpose.

Every year, we know we can rely on our well-meaning mothers and/or less kind-hearted frenemies to leave us a pair of socks underneath the Christmas tree. We're not complaining. Actually, we think it's about time our pets got in on this annual holiday tradition.
If you've always dreamed of watching your dog pitter-patter down the stairs in little socks come Christmas morning – or is that just us? – we're here to help.
You'll need: one dog (model: this editor's beloved pup, Chloe), a pair of socks (we chose Woodrow Wear's Power Paws socks), your pooch's treat-of-choice and unrelenting hope.
