There’s one major problem with buying a dog bed if you own a cat: the latter will invariably end up taking ownership of it, regardless of the feelings of its intended occupant.
Over the years, we’ve seen a number of reactions from dogs having their beds stolen: either they’ll appeal to their owner, get annoyed, or nervously perch on the edge of the bed, out of claw-swiping distance.
This Great Pyrenees dog, going by the name of Luna, however, takes an altogether different approach in this video posted by TikTok user Lindsay Curtis.
We’re not totally sure what Luna’s intentions are here – either she’s trying to snuggle up with the cat, or choosing to deny reality altogether and pretend it isn’t there.
Regardless, the results are hilarious: trampling over and sitting on top of the cat. Shocked and outraged, it appeals to the camera and its owner, to no avail.

Posted accompanied by the caption, ‘I know my dog did not just sit on the cat’, the reception from the TikTok and YouTube-viewing public (where the video has also been published) has been rapturous, garnering 8 million views (at the time of writing) on the former and another 8.1 million views on the latter.
While the dog isn’t doing anything wrong in our eyes (as Lindsay points out, ‘In her defense, that is her bed’), we can’t help but feel sorry for the cat, who can do nothing but glare as the bed’s intended owner returns to claim back what’s rightfully hers.
There are plenty of clips out there showing cats and dogs involved in all sorts of bedtime standoffs, but for our money, this has to be one of the funniest we’ve seen.
