Pet lovers are often guilty of spoiling their beloved furry friends with treats they are not necessarily supposed to have – but some animals take the biscuit.

Every pet owner understands the struggle of trying to eat their food while their cat or dog sniffs around, hoping to get a bite.

Similarly, it’s always risky to leave delicious snacks and meals unattended when our pets are around.

However, catching your pet in the act can have hilarious consequences with some (although not all) animals looking guilty as sin when they realise they have been rumbled. 

Wacko Jaco has collected a side-splitting gallery of greedy pets caught at the moment they attempted to pinch their owners’ food.

Hollow legs! Wacko Jaco has collated a gallery of photos of pets caught in the act stealing food from their owners. This tiny black and white kitten placed its paws on top of a milkshake to steady itself while it guzzled down the creamy drink – and didn’t even look up after it was caught

Perhaps unsurprisingly, many of the dogs included in the gallery appear to be riddled with guilt – whereas in contrast, the cats seem not to feel any guilt whatsoever about being caught stealing food from their humans. 

One kitten, in particular, barely looks up from its milkshake despite being caught red-pawed by its owner – and instead continues to guzzle down the creamy drink.

Here, FEMAIL takes a look at some of the cheekiest pets around the world whose efforts were scuppered – but just a little bit too late…
