If a house has both dogs and cats living in it, there’s a chance that the two pets will cross paths and get into each other’s spaces.
It’s not uncommon to hear about a cat trying to take over a dog’s bed. When that happens, each dog reacts slightly differently. Some dogs might pretend it never happened, like this Great Pyrenees that simply plopped herself down on top of the cat. Others take the approach of throwing a temper tantrum.
One dog even protested the situation with her owner, but to no avail.
When an 8-year-old Saluki dog named Nilo discovered the family’s new cat sleeping in his bed, he took a different approach entirely. Instead of plopping down on top of the cat or throwing a fit, he simply tried to barter with the 6-month-old tabby named Dusty.
According to the American Kennel Club, Saluki dogs are among the world’s oldest breed. They were once hunting dogs for royalty, but now they fit into families from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances. Despite their roots as hunting dogs, the Saluki breed is known for being incredibly gentle.
Nilo is the perfect example of just how gentle the breed can be! Despite losing his personal bed to a newcomer, he doesn’t once resort to violence or aggression. Instead, he does his best to barter and beg for his bed back. Unforuatenily, his pleas fell on deaf ears. Cats are known for being the most agreeable, after all.
In the end, Nilo reluctantly gives up and lies beside the cat – clearly unhappy about the situation.
