Cat gets startled by its reflection, tries to fight it. Clip is hissterical
Are you still recovering from weekend blues as the first day of the working week draws to a close? Are you looking for a little pick-me-up after getting done with a rather long Monday? If so, then here is a recording that you must check out. The derpy video, which shows a kitty getting startled by its reflection in the mirror, is so ‘pawsome’, that it’s bound to leave you with a massive smile on your face.
Posted on Reddit on December 20, this clip is almost 15 seconds long. “I must attack this strange creature,” reads the caption of the post, written from the feline’s perspective.
The clip shows a white-and-brown furred feline walking in front of a mirror. As soon as the kitty spots itself, it jumps high in the air and backs away. Clearly shocked to see its ‘copy cat’, pun intended, the feline takes a few seconds to approach the mirror again. Then, it tentatively lands a few paw punches on its reflection.
