A video shows a cat discovering a pet camera under the men and eyeing it suspiciously before all hell breaks loose.
The funny clip was uploaded to TikTok by user @_lilli_grace and shows a cute white and ginger cat sniffing around a bedroom with his nose to the floor.
Suddenly, he catches sight of the camera filming from underneath the bed.
He creeps towards it slowly with his eyes as wide as saucers, inch by inch, until he is just a few inches away and his face fills up the whole screen.
The cat then raises a paw and swipes at the camera, knocking it over, and then hits it again and again.
"He didn't know what the camera was," says the caption with the video.
The video has been watched more than 116,000 times and received 35,000 "likes" and hundreds of comments, mostly saying how unnerving the footage is.
A freaked-out fan wrote: “His eyes are so blank.”
"I see the demon in his/her eyes," said a second viewer.
Posting crying emojis, another viewer said: "I jumped outta my bed."
"Thanks for the jump scare," said someone else.
