A video of a sleeping cat and an annoying dove has gone viral on Youtube.

The cat is seen trying to take a snooze as the dove pecks and coos.

Despite taking several swipes at the dove, the cat appears to be gentle and not wanting to hurt the bird, simply to be left alone to sleep.

The dove’s persistence is impressive – it refuses to take no for an answer and  pecks at the tired cat throughout the clip.


And if you thought a video of a cat and dove would be unique, think again. Here’s another clip in which a dove tries to build its nest on the back of a cat.
