A Reddit user is igniting viral conversation after sharing a letter sent by a neighbor requesting the poster keep their cats "out of the window," as the pets are causing the neighbor's dog to bark.

In a post shared to Reddit, the anonymous user wrote, "I own my own home, and I have three cats (plus two new babies I found outside). Two of them love to sit in the window when it’s nice out. They do nothing but sleep. We keep the windows open as we don’t have AC yet."

The cats' habit of sunning in the window apparently doesn't sit well with the neighbor, who sent a letter reading: "Hey neighbor! Can you please keep your cats out of the window? They are causing my dog to sit in the window and bark all day long. I work from home, so this is very difficult. Thanks."

The Reddit user shared an image of the letter alongside a photo of one of their cats.

Now, other Reddit users are weighing in and overwhelmingly siding with the original poster.

One commenter suggested the poster send their own letter to the neighbor, one reading: "please keep your dog out of the window, his presence is disrupting my cat's chakras and chill vibes. k thx"

Another suggested the cat-owner send the neighbor a "coupon for local dog trainer."

Others noted that there's little the cat-owner can do, save for placing their cats in a cage.

"Closing the blinds just results in broken blinds (and a cat in the window)," wrote one commenter, while another wrote, "You cannot stop a cat from sitting in a window. Cats WILL find a way."

But, as many noted, dogs tend to be easier to train.

"You absolutely can do a number of things to stop a dog from from barking at a window," wrote one commenter. "You can put up a shade, or you can train them not to react, or you can put them in a different room."

And while many commenters were quick to note that it's unfair for the original poster to discipline their cats, rather than the neighbor figuring out how to control their own dog, others were more blunt.

"Your neighbor is ridiculous," wrote one commenter.
