As the story goes, God instructed Noah to build an ark and settle there for just a sec with his family and two of every living creature on Earth. Noah, in turn, built that ark and survived the great flood, thus saving mankind. That story is not nearly as epic as the time this couple built an 11-foot mega-bed to deal with the predicament of too many animals.

A Reddit user named Robdogbird says that he and his girlfriend built the bed to accommodate their large brood, which includes five cats and two dogs. Here’s how this majestic bed was made:

We had the king spring mattress and wanted to try the memory foam but they are super expensive so we got full foam mattress. We also needed storage so we skipped bedframe and boxspring and framed out storage under it so we lined up height to make them even. The seam is noticeable when you lay across it but not nearly what you would think. Sheets are just one set full and one king, matching if we can find them. The comforters are just two full and cover it perfectly, also nice if she wants covers and I don’t. Option for squishy spring or more firm foam is actually nice option.

Talk about genius. Unlike the story of Noah, however, not all the animals are on board with the super-sized bed.

Notice the rebel cat at the right who instead of falling in line with this whimsical idea chooses to acknowledge that a bed should be regular bed size. Also note the steps leading up to the bed. Gotta be safe.
