Woof — it’s been a long week.
If you feel like you’ve been working like a dog — or the cat-astrophic news cycle is making you want to claw up your furniture — let us offer you the internet-equivalent of a big pile of catnip: hilarious tweets about cats and dogs.
We shih tzu not.
Each week at HuffPost, we scour Twitter to find the funniest posts about our favorite four-legged furballs being complete goofballs. And yes, they are sure to make you howl.
So shoo your kitty off your keyboard and enjoy some very good tweets. And if you want some more, no need to beg. Check out last week’s batch right here .
So sit, stay and enjoy a few minutes of animal-based hilarity. Think of it as some much-needed kibble for your soul.
Sometimes when my cats sit right next to me, I'll get up and go hide under the bed just so they know how it feels.

During teaching today I was petting my cat and my co-teacher announced it and asked to see the cat. Then no fewer than 60% of the students reached down and pulled THEIR cats up into view of the cameras and suddenly my Zoom squares were all cats and everything was perfect.

As I watched the dog chasing his tail, I thought dogs are easily amused.
Then I realized I was watching a dog chasing his tail!🤪

Dog: “WHAT IS THIS?”
Me: “Pinecone, don’t—“
Dog: ＊eats it＊
Also Dog: ＊spits it back up＊ “WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME, MUM?”
Me: “I didn’t, you just—“
Dog: ＊sees damp pinecone bit on floor＊ “WHAT’S THIS?”

My dog has nightmares and my main question is HOW? What are they about? The worst thing he’s ever experienced is getting dinner 5 minutes late

Sometimes at work if there is a cage with multiple kittens in it I will pick one up with each hand and place them by my ears to create sound cancelling headphones of purring.
