A dog has been caught red-handed trying to fit a beloved ginger pet cat's head in its mouth.

Jami captioned the video on Facebook: 'This video is just too funny not to share....make sure to watch with the sound on!'
And she was not wrong - with the clip attracting 13 million views and 415k shares.
The doggy called Reggie smothers the cat's ear with licks while the kitty raises its head in approval that it has hit the spot.

Homeowner Jami Mitchell watched as her dog Reggie started petting the family cat (pictured left) in their living room before considering his next move (pictured right)
The speckled cross-breed pup pets the cat's neck and leans itself against its fluffy underbelly.
But then with a brief glance around the living room, the pooch yawns and widens his mouth open to fit the cat's head inside, in a shocking turn of events.
Reggie pushes its jaw down the neck of the cat while it sits there almost puzzled and stunned by the situation.

And to make it even more sinister, the dog keeps his paw around the cat as though he is welcoming the family pet into a warm embrace.
Jami can be heard shouting the dog's name and tell's Reggie 'don't eat him!' which he then licks his lips and looks away mortified.
People have commented on how 'hungry' the dog is and their surprise at the video's ending.
