When Couch Potatoes Invade

Jan 20 2012 - 4:00am

When it comes to coexisting with pets, sometimes it isn't clear who rules the roost. Even in no-pets-on-furniture homes, our furry friends eventually crowd us out of our beds and claim the couch during The Bachelor because nothing is off-limits when the sleepies hit or when they just need a better vantage point from which to supervise the household. We could get mad . . . or we could just sit back and check out some pics of the cutest usurpers (sorry, you'll need to find your own chair).
