"Ugh that squeaky toy tho. Screw this."

The sad thing is it's no-win situation according to game theory - the dog ended up eating the bed.

I love how little the cat moves in the first video. I mean, I started to suspect it was a particularly convincing stuffed animal until it moved its paw.

The poor cat. Kicked out of her rightful place (which is wherever she happens to be currently, have been in the past, or might conceivably want to go to in the future) by an upstart.

I liked when she took her paw up to swat the dog and then thought, nah, not worth the trouble.

It seems it is possible to out-stubborn a cat!

She seems like an amazingly calm and good natured cat actually; most of the cats I've interacted with would have either ran or gone into full battle mode well before the end of that video.

Cats are jerks.

The puppy was clearly the jerk in these videos. The poor cat, innocently sleeping.

Puppy Gets His Bed Back (for now).

I like how the second video took a moment to capture the expression of the cat post-eviction from the bed, which was, basically, "Yeah, whatever. I wanted to leave that bed. I'm tired of that bed. It's a stupid bed."

That cat is a disgrace! Never give an inch.

The cat is very patient with the small bouncy puppy and they are both good and neither of them are bad, the only badness here is all of you divisive zealots. why can;t this site ever productively discuss C/D issues, im going to make a meta

When I was young, I had a job doing gardening for the parents of my sister's best friend. They bred Ragdoll cats, which are known for being a] huge and b] extremely placid. They're like the cows of the cat world. For the most part, the cats lived in extreme luxury in a cattery outdoors, but sometimes they were brought into the house (presumably to loll about on things).

One day, I was at the house and having finished my work, I went to get my bag from their laundry room. One of the cats was sitting on my bag. I was rather more timorous then than I am now, and was leery about approaching the cat, which was approximately the size of a sheepdog and also a pedigree. To cut a long story short, I ended up pulling the cat around the laundry room floor while it reclined elegantly on my bag. I was saved when the owner poked her head round the door (lovely woman, but a little eccentric) and picked the cat, who if I recall correctly was properly named Bismarck Totteringay Superb Conundrum*, up off my bag.

"Don't mind Bissie," she said. "Ragdolls don't mind being handled, they're awfully quiet," and then literally threw the cat at me to catch. In that split second, time slowed right down as I envisaged losing my face to a seriously annoyed cat. She was right, though; Bissie flew serenely through the air and into my arms a few feet away and never so much as twitched. He lay in my arms and stared up at me, one might even say adoringly. Ragdoll is a very apt name.

*may not be 100% accurate, the poor thing had several pedigree names.

This is my new favorite passive-aggressive cat video. It perfectly encapsulates the essence of cat.

Classic new-baby-itis:

By misdirecting the dog's innate possessiveness onto an arbitrary object, the cat was able to distract its rival from the real prize: Mommy's affection.

Okay yes that is an extremely cute and adorable puppy but more importantly omg look how clean those floors are. That is extraordinarily impressive for a 2 pet household, and I salute these fine people.

This is why my mom and her fiancé adopted one. However, she has stopped growing at 7.5 pounds and loves to bite anyone (except my mom's fiancé) who comes near her, and won't sit on anyone's lap (again, exception for mom's fiancé).

This is the natural state of pet in the absence of government enforcement of property laws. One only owns what is in one's hand, and is willing to protect by force (or mouth, as the case may be).

My cat would have just climbed into the basket and sat on top of whatever other cat was already in there, all the while pretending the basket was empty.

I dunno, man, I know a lot of pretty altruistic dogs - some are positively borderline socialists.

Cats, though? Cats look at John Galt, roll their eyes and think, "amateur."

Didn't the cat leave because it saw a gang of creatures in the mirror? Nothing to do with the squeaky toy, I think.

i love how the cuts seem to imply that the puppy was dragging the bed for hours, weeks, months, before he got the upper hand

I suspect it must be a terrible moral conflict for dogs. "If I bother the cat, I'm a bad doggie. But how can I be a good doggie if I can't go to my bed?"
