Rarely do cats let their owners have the last laugh, but TV writer Ariel Dumas tricked her feline friends with some thread and a pair of golf balls.
Dumas, a writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, shared her cat bed creation on Twitter. Yes, that is indeed a cat bed modified to look like a monster eating her pets. And it is amazing.
Behold, we have the monster, its mouth agape for all cats that dare cross its path.
I mean, just look at this photo and try to argue that watching a cat shimmy its way into the mouth of a monster isn’t at least kind of amusing.
Down the hatch ya’ go, fur ball.
Ahh, yes. Finally, the cat waits in the belly of the beast.
Ariel’s Twittersphere was understandably amused with the new cat craft.
I sewed eyeballs on my cats' bed to make it look like a monster was eating them. pic.twitter.com/0IKwO6K46w— Ariel Dumas (@ArielDumas) November 20, 2016

this is the type of quality content that I'm here for— Myra Rolston (@sound_of_random) November 20, 2016
Making one for your own cat seems fairly simple, too.
Want to make your own? All you need is two ping-pong balls, a sharpie, needle + thread, & a cat bed from the good people at @kivikis— Ariel Dumas (@ArielDumas) November 20, 2016
These were cheap ping pong balls, so I had no trouble pushing the needle through. But you could also pre-poke a hole with a tack! @Wincey— Ariel Dumas (@ArielDumas) November 20, 2016
Thank you, Ariel, for making inanimate objects amusing again.
