Feline's Surprising Response to Guardian's Fresh Bathmat: A Siberian Tale
2024/03/04

A video of a cat's reaction to a "funny" hand towel in the bathroom has gone viral on Instagram. The clip was shared by @handsome.vladimir.and.ruslan, the Instagram account of two Siberian cats - Vladimir and Ruslan. The video has reached 4.5 million views since it was posted on February 10th. The caption explains that Vladimir, one of the cats, is upset because his human mother brought home the unusual hand towel. The footage shows Vladimir in the bathroom, with his tail low and occasionally flicking, appearing to be staring at the feline-inspired towel near the sink. Cat behavior experts suggest that cats may lower their tails when they are scared or anxious, or exhibit defensive reactions like piloerection. Users on Instagram have debated whether the cat was truly upset or just had a funny response to the towel. Some criticized the owner for potentially upsetting the cat, while others defended the humor in the situation. Newsweek has reached out to the original poster for a comment on the video.
