The animal proceeded to attack, and the guys leaped into action.

"I have such a fun, bubbly personality that I can make pretty much any situation we are in a fun time!" it reads. "Speaking of bubbly … one of my favorite games is popping bubbles that people blow for me!"

Somebody deserves free pizza for life.

Because this idea – the one we're sure some people laughed off when it was blurted out in a brainstorming session, about cats starring in Pizza Hut Japan's new ad campaign – is now the stuff of legend.

In one of the new spots available on YouTube (and there are many more should you need a break today!), a group of seemingly annoyed cats sit at a table wearing Pizza Hut hats, waiting for their pizza delivery.

Dog Hates the Alarm Clock as Much as You Do

Sometimes you put a pillow over your head. Sometimes you hold your ears. But no matter what you do, you can still hear the penetrating buzz of that horrible appliance – the alarm clock.

Vizsla the dog despises it with a passion too, and in this video, as that beep, well, beeps, she howls like she's giving birth in a display of complete displeasure.

Here are some good reasons to wake a sleeping cat: a tsunami. A fire. Taylor Swift getting a new cat and naming it after her favorite TV character.

See Why This Sad Cat Makes Us So Happy

There are lots of things to be sad about these days (example: We're not having Ryan Gosling's baby) but Pixie the cat isn't bothered by any of them.

This 2-year-old feline, who resides in the U.K., has the eyes of a girl who just spent hours crying over a broken heart. But she's really as happy as a mid-nap cat – meaning her looks are purely for the benefit of others, like us.

"She's happy most of the time," the Persian cat's owner, Sophie Batt, says in an interview with the U.K. Daily Mail. "She's always playing or eating."

We've said it before and we'll say it again: We love our jobs.

But in order to keep them, we have to bring you things like this video of adorable puppies playing with toys in the PEOPLE studio.

The only reason we're still employed is because there is actually a reason for all this cuteness: Animal Planet's Emmy-nominated series, Too Cute, has somehow managed to get even cuter in its second season, with Too Cute! Pint-Sized, a 12-episode, half-hour series that begins Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (two back-to-back episodes air each week).
