When the cat’s away, the mice will play. Likewise, when the dog’s home alone, he’ll jump on the bed while the cat watches.
After forbidding the dog from going on the bed, an owner installed a camera in the room to see what really goes down when no one’s keeping tabs on the pets.
That means it’s all caught on camera (watch above): With no human interference in the way, the cat politely looks on as the dog stages a full-on rebellion, ceremoniously jumping onto the bed with a joy we thought was reserved for bacon and the mailman.
As for the other furball’s bed privileges, well, we assume said humans have long given up on trying to boss the cat around.
