Super cute! I, too, have a fluffy cat named GB (his full name is Gravyboat).

Who creates this music? I'm at a total loss for how the muse whispers in anyone's ear to say... "Cutesier. Even more than the last time. Completely insufferable. Clarinet. FIDDLE. FIDDLLLLLLLE"

I've never really understood cat beds. I've always thought: why would I get my cat a bed, when she's perfectly happy on my bed (or my couch, or my papasan chair, or sprawled out at the top/bottom of the stairs being a trip hazard ...). Maybe it's because dogs like having their own beds, people thought cats should too.

But just like cats need a really different design of carrier (the front-loading ones are useless), it just feels species inappropriate to get a cat bed. I mean, my cat would sleep on one, since she would (and does) sleep on anything, but it's not pointful.

Cat trees, on the other hand, are great for active cats. They like being high and having better sightlines.

My comment, of course, is no criticism of this video or post. Cats are the main reason I go online.

> ...their human companion, Gwangbok

I think Gwangbok is the cat. That’s what GB would stand for. I don’t recall seeing the humans referred to as anything other than “younger brother” and “older brother”.

I thought that was a pretty good idea with the marble panels for the samoyed. I hadn't seen that before. Is that a common solution for our hot flooffy dogs of the North?

Oh! I think you are right! I will see if people might fix that.

I was surprised and a little disappointed that the cat did not sit on the dog.

This scenario did not resolve to my satisfaction. Milky must suffer for his impudence. I am unfulfilled.

I was expecting to see one of those little round pet beds that are just like a cushion or something, not a small version of a modern-design couch. No wonder the dog wants to sleep on it!

I would be happy to be a proud parent of the dog, the cat or the yellow sectional.

In the Faking My Death video alone I counted 7 pieces of pet furniture. Which definitely makes me feel better about the five dog beds for my two goblins.

"I've never really understood cat beds. I've always thought: why would I get my cat a bed, when she's perfectly happy on my bed (or my couch, or my papasan chair, or sprawled out at the top/bottom of the stairs being a trip hazard ...)."

While my two cats generally ignore the cat beds that were designed as such, they do love to curl up on whatever non-cat-bed soft spots they can find. If there's a beach towel left folded on a table—cat bed. Throw blanket on a corner of the couch—that's where you'll find them curled up together. Spare blanket on top of a dresser by the guest bed—you'd better wash the cat hair off (or just have a spare spare-blanket) before you have guests. We have some super-cheap chair cushions from IKEA that we got for the cats, and they'll ignore the cat bed to sit on the chair cushion next to it.

The one designed-for-cats bed they do like is the felted wool "cat cave" my parents got them for Christmas. They'll fight over who gets to curl up inside the cave, or sit on top of it so it's squished down into a shape like the cat beds they're ignoring. I have some fabric that I'm planning on sewing into a similarly shaped "cave" in hopes that they can each curl up inside one, but the chances they'll just ignore it are probably proportional to how much effort I put into designing and building it.

Milky being introduced to the marble panels

You can see that ice packs can be placed underneath for extra cooling power. The owners got them for Milky during a summer heat wave.

I think Henri would agree.

Yes, cats hate effort. If they see you putting forth effort on their behalf, they’ll despise you—even more than usual. Effort is a stinky cologne to cats.

The best cat bed is neatly folded fresh laundry.

Ours generally preferred the computer keyboard, book, newspaper or whatever else you were paying attention to instead of *her*. My textbooks in particular ended up with a cat hair coating.

I am glad I wasn't the only one who thought this! Cats and dogs are naturally awesome, they don't need ingratiating music and sound effects to get us on their side.

My wife is forever posting videos like this on FB and yes, the creators/compilers almost always feel obligated to fill the audio with the worst music imaginable. When watching just about any animal video I hit the mute immediately.

Also, that cat was ridiculously lenient. Our cats always make sure the dogs know their place as a lower life form.

I make cat beds. Lots of cats like a layer of something between them and the floor, or whatever other surface, the way that they will seek out paper. It helps if you put catnip in between layers.

I'm 99% sure that it's part of the Youtube Audio Library. I recognize several of the tracks.

Sometimes we offer our dogs "air cookies" aka "invisible food."

Our dogs catch on pretty quickly that it's a scam, though.

We have two cat beds that we got to go on the bed because otherwise our dearly departed elderly ladycat and the younger one would fight over who got to sleep on me.

Now that we have a new younger one, she and the formerly younger one have two beds that go on our bed, and they still fight over who gets to sleep on me.
