What our pets do at home while we’re at work is a mystery we will probably never fully solve. But for a minority of our four-legged friends, their secrets are revealed when their owners come home early from work. Being caught unawares, it seems, can be somewhat embarrassing for them — but from our point of view it can often be utterly hilarious.
