Cats love to sleep. Alongside eating, scratching and flipping from loving a belly rub to hating the belly rubber in a flash of teeth and claws, sleep is their favorite pastime. And what better way for cats to get one over on their mortal enemies – dogs – than to bunk up on top of them? Luckily for us, a cat sleeping on man’s best friend is almost too adorable, so we’re letting the dogs take one for the team this time.
This sleepy pooch just thought he was wearing a new fur hat with ear warmers until it started licking his head. He’s fine with the whole situation now, though, because who wouldn’t want a hat that cleans you at the same time?
D’awww, that is adorable. This dog doesn’t even know that there’s a tiny kitten napping on him, and the cat probably keeps wondering why the carpet is breathing. Cats and dogs are stupid, right? Cute, but stupid.
Dog: “Sleepy dog is so sleepy. Sleepy dog has had hard day being dog. Sleepy dog just needs lie down on own for little while. Sleepy dog hopes nobody bothers him while naps.”
Cat: “AH LOVE MAH BIG SAUSAGE!”
While this may look adorable, what you are actually seeing is a young leopard landing its first ever kill. Yes, the “sweet” pup-and-kitty embrace is in fact the final moments of life as the cat cuts the dog’s carotid artery, and the poor thing gently slips into the cold arms of oblivion.
Doesn’t that face just say, “Look, it’s bad enough that I have to deal with this. Do you really have to take a picture?” And doesn’t it also say, “I’m a Bulldog, so I can’t help looking grumpy all the time. Also tired. Also a little bit stupid.”
Stealth kitten bides his time. When stealth kitten spies an opportunity, stealth kitten takes it. Stealth kitten saw a big ol’ sleeping dog and snuck up on him quietly. Now stealth kitten is snuggle kitten, and snuggle kitten has never been more content.
Fat Cat’s to do list:
1. Put catnip in dog food. Like, loads of it.
2. Wrap sleeping dog in blanket so nobody suspects a thing.
3. Wait. Maybe eat while waiting? Ooh, could have a bit of catnip too. Yeah, that would be nice. Should Fat Cat write this or just think it? Too late.
4. Sleep on stupid dog.
We’d like to think that the cat was giving the dog a nice massage to ease him toward a gentle slumber. However, knowing cats, we are absolutely certain that he is applying a death grip and plans on stealing those treats as soon as the doggy passes out.
Cat: “Psst… have they seen us?”
Dog: “I think so, yeah. They look a little weirded out. Shall we pretend we hate each other like usual?”
Cat: “Nah, I’m way too comfy to move. Just give them the puppy-dog eyes and they might leave us alone.”
Cat: *whispers* “I’m gonna climb you. Then I’m gonna snooze on you. Then I’m gonna take a poop behind the couch and pretend it was you. Then I’m gonna…”
Dog: “You know I’m awake, right?”
Cat: “I… did not…”
We’re not sure this is actually a cat snoozing on a dog. We think they are, in fact, attached to each other. Remember the ’90s cartoon CatDog? These poor guys do. They remember it as a documentary.
How cute would it be if we stacked a little sleeping rabbit on top of the cat? Then maybe a hamster, a gerbil and a tiny little bird after that. Ooh, and we could put a tiny cowboy hat on the bird. Buckaroo! can be adorable.
Little known fact: boxer dogs live on a diet of adorable kittens. But the problem is that they love kittens and hate themselves for their culinary choices. And that’s the reason why they can often be seen cuddling up to their prey before the kill. It’s also why they always look grumpy.
If you were a kitten, wouldn’t you want to fall asleep on a cloud? And if you were a cloud, wouldn’t you want to be a kitten’s bed, like it was your sole purpose? And if you were a human, wouldn’t you want to be a kitten-cloud?
This is Magda, the Dogue De Bordeaux. After years of trying to find a mate and settle down, Magda gave up on having her own children and decided to adopt. Indeed, Magda loves this kitten like it was her own puppy and seems to be a fine mother. We love you, Magda.
Yes, this might look cute. But it takes a much more sinister turn when you find out that the cat has been farting in the poor dog’s ear all morning. And that’s the kind of mental torture that cats use to keep dogs down. Cats are the worst.
You know when you just eat the middle bit out of an Oreo because it’s the best bit? Well, this is just like that, but instead of it being the best bit, it’s a cat. And instead of eating it, you have to look after it and keep it alive.
Cat: “Hey, Fido?”
Dog: “Yeah, Mittens?”
Cat: “I love how I can hear the ocean when I lean into your ear. Also, I love that we are the same colors. It’s like we were meant to be together. I truly love you…”
Dog: “I like your little mustache.”
These two murderous beasts are brother and sister, and they were transformed and enslaved by an evil witch. Here, then, they’re exhausted from a hard day of leading children into gingerbread houses. Being cute can literally be a curse sometimes.
See the big grin on that cat’s face? This is called “hiding in plain sight.” He and his moggy pals were strutting past the sleeping dog, and one of the crew dared him to lie as close as possible for a photo. We’re just impressed that a cat could use a camera.
