* Subverted in one issue of ''ComicBook/TheSandman'', a cat states that she thought she was the owner of her humans, until she mated with a stray and her master threw the kittens in a river, due to her being a purebreed siamese and her half-breed offspring being worthless to him. The story actually revolves around the idea that humans actually ''were'' the pets of cats at one point, but retroactively changed the history of the entire planet through collective dreaming, something humans are easily capable of thanks to their innate social nature, but not cats. Wether thats actually TRUE or not... well, its ''The Sandman'', its pretty trippy.

This trope is where it turns out that the humans aren't as in charge as they think. As far as their supposed pet is concerned, the human is the ''real'' pet. The pet may know how the human thinks of the relationship and keep a masquerade going, or it may not care what the hairless ape thinks of things as long as it knows it's the real master.[[note]] Real dogs ''do'' feel in charge of any human who shows ''fear'' of them, while they don't see their own ''owners'' this way. [[/note]] In rarer cases, the human may even find out that their relationship with their pet isn't quite what they thought.
