Cat Makes an Unexpected ‘Catch’ and the Internet Is Cracking Up

Every once in a while, you catch your cat doing something truly goofy. It usually happens when no one's around and they think no one can see. Which is why we're thanking the internet gods for a video of cat doing something freakin' hilarious — trust us on this one. It's something you'll definitely want to see. 

The viral moment was captured by @meow_meowfamily and recently shared on TikTok. The footage shows the kitty with something that all cats crave: their own tails. Yep! You might've heard the expression "cat got your tongue" but in this cause it's more like cat got his tail. Admittedly it looks pretty silly, but the cat seemed so pleased with himself that we can't help but cheer him on. You did it, buddy! "Finally he caught his tail," @meow_meowfamily wrote in the caption. "That’s so funny."

With over 134,000 views, it's safe to say that we weren't the only ones laughing. "Just making sure my tail comes with me this time," @inletlady707 joked. "I can't let it get away again!" @davidh4212 kidded. "He's like 'come with me you naughty thing you!!!'" @loverofanimals21 wrote. “Come with me! You have the right to remain still, anything you do can and will be used against you in the litter box," @mustardmuse teased.

Later in the thread, the TikTok creator joked that this must've been a case where the cat was worried that "his tail will be stolen." Which we can sort of see by how carefully he's clinging to it. Although who could blame him. Catching his own tail has probably been this life's work. Bravo!
