Dogs have been caught on video being bested by the cats who share their homes, with laughing humans filming the humiliating scenes and sharing them online.
Daily Star Online has found some of the funniest examples of cats versus dogs, which have rightfully left viewers in stitches, and the results are below.
Although pooches have a reputation for being fierce and loyal defenders of the home, it seems a sassy feline can prove more than a match for even a large Doberman or golden retriever.
Even more bizarrely, a tiny kitten barely the size of a human hand ends up the top-dog in more than one hilarious scene.
Golden retriever forced to cuddle attention-seeking cat
In this first video, uploaded on TikTok by user @gambitthegolden and playable at the top of this page, a grumpy golden retriever has to put up with a black cat who has clearly never heard of personal space.
The new cat called Luna, recently adopted from a shelter, has the run of the whole house but for some reason insists on snuggling up to the dog whenever possible.
Unsure of what to make of the furry intruder, Gambit the golden snarls at Luna. Unfortunately, she doesn't quite get the message and licks his ears affectionately.

Gambit's other attempts to intimidate the cat by swatting her with a paw fail miserably too, with the feline totally unbothered.
Luna keeps using Gambit as a heated pillow and, eventually, he accepts his new role in life and the two become friends.
The video was watched more than 3.5 million times on TikTok, attracting hundreds of comments in the process.
One viewer joked: "The first time I see hating retriever and friendly cat hahaha is like the world is upside down."
"I love how relentlessly unapologetically unbothered the cat is," quipped a second fan.
Someone else remarked: "Why is he even angry? I would love to have a fluffy ball of warmth that ants to cuddle."
Cat slaps dog straight in the chops
In this next clip, shared on TikTok by user @thekendallmariec, a pooch called Junior is chilling out in a hallway when a tabby cat gives him an unexpected slap.
The cat, called Joe Dirt, starts off the assault by edging forwards slowly, while the dog watches with a sense of unease as if half aware of what is coming.
When it is right in front of the pooch, the tabby gently touches his paw with his own.
Suddenly, the cat whacks the dog full-on in the face and leaps back before his startled victim even has time to retaliate.

The cheeky cat then out-stares the dog, despite their huge difference in size and strength.
Predictably, the hilarious video was watched more than 5.7 million times and people were staggered at the sheer audacity of the cat.
One person commented: "I love the 'hey down look here' touch before the real strike. Pure fighting genius."
Someone else joked: "Freakin' cats have always gotta test their limits."
"The courage of cats is almost surreal at times," said another viewer.
Kitten forces dog to sleep on the floor
Footage of a tiny kitten making a dog leave a warm soft bed and sleep on the hard floor has people cracking up.
The video was uploaded on TikTok by user @gingermidget90 and shows Basil the kitten approach the doggie bed and stare at the pooch until she gets up and leaves.
Despite being far too big for the bed, the ginger kitten crawls straight to the middle to curl up for a nap.
The camera then pans around to show the poor old dog, who is a mixed breed adopted from a shelter, lying on the wooden floor with an adorably sad expression.

Unsurprisingly, the cute video was watched more than 1.5 million times and animal lovers said their hearts were melting over the kindness of the dog.
"Aww my heart," gushed one viewer.
Sounding smitten, another fan wrote: "Hands down the sweetest dog ever."
Another person commented: "The way the kitten looked at the dog I think he just wanted the dog to move a little and cuddle together."
Doberman complains about bossy kitten
An unlucky Doberman found herself turfed from her own bed by a pint-sized kitten that was barely two months old in a hilarious video.
The dog's owner, TikTok user @calebwilliamsco, says the pooch "came rushing to get me" in the hope he would make the feline move, but he just found the situation hilarious.
Laughing, he says: "What are you going to do about it?"
The dog, called Ivy, continues to stare blankly at her bed and then look at her owner with puppy-dog eyes.

An on-screen caption explains that the pooch is still "having a hard time understanding why we got a kitten and how to handle it".
The dog, unable to shake Tido the kitten off the bed, then seems to almost have a tantrum and lies next to the mat, burying her head under it with a look of sheer frustration.
It was uploaded with the caption: "I’ll let you decide who is boss… my nine-year-old 90lbs Doberman or the nine-week weightless kitten."
The funny clip was watched nearly 3 million times and Ivy got a lot of sympathy from fans, although people were also left in stitches at the situation.
One viewer quipped: "I can hear it… 'Dad he’s touching my stuff!'"
Posting laughing emojis, a second viewer wrote: "Aww she’s like dad why did you have to bring that home."
In more recent videos, the kitten has grown up a lot more and the Doberman is beginning to tolerate his company and share the bed with him.
