Pet parents, pull up a chair and gather round, because if you've ever had to barricade your four-legged friend outside of your room at night, you'll find what I'm about to show you very relatable. In an adorable throwback video making its rounds on Instagram, a Golden Retriever named Chester is absolutely beside himself after getting locked out of his human's bedroom.
In the adorable clip — which is set to the "Sad Cat Diary" audio that went viral in 2013 — we see Chester looking oh-so-sad due to his unfortunate exile. "The authorities have closed the door to the bedroom. I can only assume that they have forgotten about me and have left me here to die," says a melancholy voice. "As a last resort, I will stand post for the rest of the night and sing the song of my people in hopes that they rescue me."
As much as we want to reach through the screen to pet Chester and comfort him, we also relate to the fact that sometimes, humans just need their sleep! If you're more of a cat person, check out this viral video of a cat who's under the impression they are starving.
