A photo op with a squirrel that went awry has left a teenager flustered but unhurt.
Kittens, babies, sprinkles: The best things come in small packages. So it makes scientific sense that this video of a teeny-tiny hamster eating an equally itty-bitty burrito is overflowing with adorableness.
Before the hungry, hungry hamster chows down, viewers are treated to a peek at the craftsmanship that goes into making novelty-sized Mexican food. With the ingredients carefully diced, folded and inspected, the customer is served.
Congratulations – we know it hasn't been easy, but you've done it. You've made it this far without having House of Cards spoiled for you.
And now you're settling into your favorite corner of the living room sofa. You've got your wine in one hand and your best furry buddy by your side. You hit play ... and something goes very wrong.
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.

Just when the world thought twerking and "Gangnam Style" had surpassed their saturation point, along comes Nathan.
This hairless pup – rocking a Miley Cyrus crop – is a resident at Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue in South Carolina, and is also the non-profit's top rump-shaker. To get a little extra warmth, Nathan has developed a cardio regimen of intense wiggling – and the Internet has taken notice.
It's time to come clean. Here at PEOPLE Pets, there's a certain animal kingdom stereotype we've sometimes helped promulgate: That cats are jerks.
