When it comes to napping, a cat and dog can seemingly put aside their differences and come together. Just like we need our fluffy pillows, cats need a fluffy dog.
When cats sleep on dogs, the result is amazing. See for yourself in these 35+ hilarious photos of amazing four-footers.
1) There’s plenty of room for two!
What’s better than a single bed? That’s right – a double bed. These two lovely kittens don’t want a bed of their own. Instead, they’ll just try and find their bigger canine brother who is more than willing to share some of his warm furs as a place to sleep. As you can see, the pup is definitely large enough to fit two!
2) Cuteness Jenga
Sometimes, you just have to improvise. That’s definitely something that this adorable cat must’ve thought, who decided to re-enact a game of Jenga on this sweet pup. And they both look so peaceful, it’s simply amazing!
3) Get these things off of me!
Sometimes, relationships between cats and dogs just don’t always work out – just like in the cartoons. These two small kittens may look adorable, but the pup isn’t a big fan of them residing on his back. It doesn’t seem like the dog has much of a choice, however, as these two cunning cats have managed to secure a spot already.
4) What pup?
Taking a nap in a soft bed? With a couple of pillows? Or perhaps with some warm blankets? All of those things couldn’t replace the untouchable feeling of sleeping on top of your best friend – although this cat may be a little large for his friend to handle.
5) If it works, it works.
Admittedly, this pup doesn’t seem to overly happy about this whole sleeping situation. The pup just lied down on the floor while his bright cat sibling was taking a nap on his back. The kitten does seem to be pretty comfortable, though – and that’s all that counts.
6) Matching sheets
Despite one being an adorable dog and the other a sweet little cat, these two have a bunch of things in common. One of those things is their fur, which seems to be color-matched! These two similar animals love spending time together, which includes taking a nap on the bigger sibling.
7) Just let me tuck in here
This pit bull looks like he needs to catch up on many hours of sleep and it extremely tired, but there’s still some room to hug his kitten friend. The contrast between these two four-footers couldn’t be greater, which makes this an absolutely great and adorable picture.
8) This bed is big enough for the both of us
These two cat siblings wanted someplace they could sleep, so they tried to find a ‘bed’ that was large enough to hold both of them. They didn’t really find a bed, but their pup friend was more than happy to lend them a hand instead.
9) Don’t move, dog. Don’t wake the cat!
We can’t decide whether these two look a bit agitated or sleepy – but perhaps it’s just a mixture of both. This feline four-footer thought that the best place to take a nap was on this pup’s head. Hey, if it works – it works.
10) Such a protective sibling
Sibling rivalries and fights happen all the time, and it’s no different for animals. But when push comes to shove, the older or larger sibling will always stand up for their family. That’s exactly what’s going on here, as this pup doesn’t want to let go of his feline buddy. Dogs are called loyal for a reason!
11) Sleep it off, bud
This inseparable duo is just way too cute. The orange four-footers seem to have had a very exciting and intensive day, as the dog manages to fall asleep on a hard surface. As for the cat, it found a great place to sleep as well.
12) Let me warm you up, my cat friend
Sometimes, all you need is a good cuddle and a heartful hug to warm you up. That’s exactly what’s going on here in this picture, as the pup uses his entire body to gently squeeze his feline buddy and make him comfortable. The kitten couldn’t find a better place to sleep!
13) I love you, pillow
Pillows are probably one of the greatest things in existence. However, dogs are definitely even better, which is something that this cat will wholeheartedly agree on. The way this cute kitten hugs his friend while sleeping is simply too adorable!
14) He’s touching the butt!
When these two are around, hilarity always ensues. This super small kitten is already looking for a place to sleep, and it has chosen quite a remarkable spot on his canine friend. The kitten seems a bit sleepy, but we’re pretty sure it’s quite easy to fall asleep on this ‘bed’. The dog, however, doesn’t seem too overjoyed. Hilarious!
15) This cat is loving the bed right now
The owner of these two lovely pets once uploaded a picture of them and garnered a lot of attention, so he thought he’d try again with another picture. Once again, his cat and dog managed to steal the hearts of everyone! They’re peacefully taking a nap and relaxing after a busy day full of activities.
16) Look at those adorable eyes!
As if the puppy wasn’t cute enough, it’s his cat friend with those adorable eyes that makes everything so much better. The small dog is already exhausted and is definitely in need of some rest, but this kitten isn’t ready to go to sleep yet and just loves to cuddle.
17) Everybody’s satisfied in this one
If animals could talk, they’d probably tell you that sleep is one of the most important things in the world. This dynamic duo would certainly be living proof of that! While the bulldog seems to have trouble counting sheep, his feline buddy can fall asleep in an instant.
Just look at these two! If you thought that cats and dogs don’t get along – you’re probably right – but it looks like this sweet Garfield-like kitten and labrador definitely enjoy spending time together. Such a graceful nap outside, beautiful!
19) Please turn off the light
If you’re really tired, you can fall asleep just about anywhere. This pup is eager to close his eyes and catch a couple of sweet dreams, but not before this small kitten could hitch a ride on his back first. Ah well – as long as this pup catches some sleep and the kitten has some fun, everybody is happy.
20) Keep the noise down, please
The kitten is probably the more dominant person in this unique relationship, at least, according to this hilarious picture. This pup was simply relaxing on the couch when he was joined by a somewhat intimidating cat. The kitten wants to claim his neck area to sleep on, but the pup isn’t too happy about that.
Two animals wondering off to dreamworld together is just simply too adorable, especially when they’re hugging each other in the process. This duo can fall asleep just anywhere and at any time – as long as they have each other to sleep on.
22) You’re okay dog. You’re okay.
Usually, it’s the larger dogs than ends up comforting the cat. This time, it actually looks like it’s more the other way around. This cat gave her loyal friend a warm hug and both probably fell asleep in the process. Also, look at that cat’s tail! It blends in perfectly with the pup’s fur.
23) Love this memory foam mattress
You can’t deny that memory foam mattresses are great. They adapt to your sleeping position which results in a better night’s rest and increased comfort. Judging by the look of both animals on this photo, it’s likely that this pup is acting as one of those ‘mattresses’ for this kitten as well because it looks like the cat couldn’t get any more comfortable.
24) Wait, this isn’t right!
Sometimes, the roles can be reserved and for this particular kitten, that’s not necessarily a good thing. This poor but beautiful black cat is acting – willingly or not – as a pillow for his ‘slightly heavier’ pup sibling. Well, at least one of the two will sleep comfortably.
25) This is a king size dog
If you’ve ever slept in a king size bed, you know that having all of that extra room can definitely be liberating and will definitely help for a good night of sleep. Even though this kitten was still very much awake, she already ‘reserved’ her spot on her king-sized friend.
26) Three is better than two
These three could definitely audition for the leads in ‘The Three Musketeers’ as they truly look a great, little bit mischievous and overall fun team together. The dog has wrapped himself in a blanket which makes it even cozier for the cats to sleep on. How thoughtful!
27) Unconditional love
There is nothing sweeter than love, even if it’s between two unexpected animal species. You can just immediately see that these two have a very special and caring bond together. They way they give each other a goodnight kiss is just really special and is true proof of their unconditional love.
28) Caring for his sick friend
Owner Ashley noticed that her pup was feeling a bit down lately because he had fallen ill. We’re sure that this four-footer receives all the attention and love he deserves from his owner, but his feline sibling was more than willing to cheer him up while the sick pup was resting in the couch.
29) Better than the finest cotton in the world
Just how adorable can a photo be? This tiny kitten has found a large and warm spot on his furry friend which would be ideal to take a nap. And since the pup is taking a nap too, he might not have even noticed!
30) Sick pup gets some support
Being sick is not a very fun experience for anyone – human or animal. Luckily, this ill puppy Zeke could count on the everlasting support and love from his buddy Winston. This kitty just likes to hug him all day and sleep on his furry back. How cute!
31) Keep your head over there, dog. This is perfect
Not all sleeping positions are equally as comfortable – at least for one of these two in the picture. This foxy and smirky kitten enjoys turning around, but that’s something that the pup underneath can’t really enjoy all that much.
32) A subtle spot to take a nap
This pup’s warm fur isn’t only a great place to take a nap, but it’s an even better place to play a game of ‘hide and seek’ as well! These two friends definitely have similar fur, and if it wasn’t for the small brown spot on this feline’s back, it’d be hard to spot the kitten at all. In any case, they both look so peaceful while they’re sleeping. A perfect match!
33) “I don’t think she’ll mind”
The story behind this photograph is actually quite special. These two pets are the best of friends, but due to circumstances, they were separated for a month. This picture illustrates the moment these two reunited. The cat is probably very happy to have its bed back!
34) Sleepy cuddles
It’s no secret that some move around a lot in their sleep, and the same counts for animals too. However, it looks like this kitten will stay firmly on this caring pup’s cosy arm judging by how tight she’s holding it. Cuddles in your sleep – what more could you wish for?
35) “Where’s the dog?”
At first, it’s pretty hard to spot the dog in this picture, especially when you see this adorable kitten looking towards the camera. The cat seems to be enjoying himself, which is definitely something that can’t be said for the pup he’s sitting on. Hidden away underneath his fur, the pup probably isn’t all that comfortable. One thing’s for sure: it’s never boring in this family.
36) This is just too adorable
You can just immediately tell that these two are the very best of friends. The owner of the lovely four-footers posted this amazing picture online. It turns out that the cat is actually blind, but his pup sibling has a heart of gold and loves taking care of him all the time.
37) Resting on the best spot
Even though there’s plenty of free spots to choose on this canine bed, this cat seems particularly fond of one specific location to sleep. Perhaps it’s the warmest? The furriest? We probably won’t ever find out, but we do know that both are going to be catching zzz’s soon.
These two furry color-matching friends definitely get along well. This adorable cat decided to use her pup friend as a pillow and it’s about the cutest thing ever. As for the dog, he certainly doesn’t seem to mind. They both wandered off to dreamy wonderland in an instant!
39) Small bed, big hearts
What if you could simply combine the best of both worlds? A nice bed to sleep in with a pillow and some blankets, and a canine ‘bed’ as well! These two mischievous kittens have secured a spot on this pit bull terrier who’s simply taking a nap in his own bed. Sharing is caring, right?
40) As cozy as you can be
There’s plenty of free space on the bed, but if there’s one thing that’s cozier than a warm bed, pillows, and blankets – it’s your canine best friend. Even though it doesn’t exactly look like an ideal position to sleep, the two friends look as comfortable as ever. Perhaps they just had a very exciting and exhausting day together and they could just instantly fall asleep no matter what.
