More people than ever before are investing in a four-legged companion, with a survey in 2018 finding that 71.1 million households across the United States now have at least one pet.

I know, it's hard to believe. But, somehow, cats have beaten dogs to the hot spot, with roughly 88.3 million felines being kept as pets across the United States, and only 74.8 million pooches.

It turns out that we just love our cats.

Because, let's be real, people. The neediness of dogs can get downright annoying, and there's nothing quite as soothing as a purring kitty to cuddle up to at the end of a long day.

Cats have been our favorite companions for thousands of years.

Originating back to ancient Egypt, cats gradually became domesticated around 4,000 years ago. Early Egyptians worshipped a cat goddess and even mummified their beloved pets for their journey to the next world, which spurred other cultures around the world to also adopt felines as pets.

And they have entertained us ever since.

Everyone has, at some point in their lives, sat and googled funny cat videos on the internet for hours on end. Because what's more entertaining than videos of cats wearing cute sunglasses?

Some people still insist that cats are evil.

Some believe that our furry friends are plotting against us...

And that they will one day conquer the human race and take over the world.

Okay, that may be a little dramatic.

But it is undeniable that some cats can have a sinister edge about them.

And one TikTok user shared a hilarious video.

Showing just what their cat gets up to while they sleep - and the internet can't get enough.

The video she shared showed some nighttime disturbances.


Of the feline variety.

He even gave his owner a whack in the face.


But don't worry - the story has a happy ending.

All he wanted was some snuggles.


What a cutie.

Here's the video.
