A litter of kittens’ synchronized twirl at a dog running around their cage has melted the hearts of the internet.
The adorable video first posted by Cassidy Arvidson, from New York, US, shows the tiny fluff balls sitting inside their cage in the garden.
A dog is seen hurtling past outside and as it runs around their cage, the kittens spin to face it almost in unison.
One of the plucky felines then tries to swipe at the pooch – not quite understanding the concept of the cage in front of it.
The video was initially posted to Instagram yesterday (November 4) with the caption: “A little distraction to help relieve some of your election stresses.”
But, after being re-shared to Reddit, the clip has since exploded with more than 32,000 up votes.
“Omg, this is adorable,” one viewer wrote.
Another joked: “Oh God, the kittens are organizing.”
A third added: ““The spin cycle.”
But not everyone was impressed by the footage, with some saying the kitten’s antics showed that they were actually terrified.
“They’re not okay, this is a kittens terrified posture,” one said. “Those kittens are scared as f*** and this is dangerous to do.”
And a second agreed, saying: “This isn’t cute, this is dangerous, stupid, and honestly terrifying for those kittens.
“That’s a good way to get your cat to hate dogs for the rest of their lives and a good way to turn one of those kittens into a chew toy.”
It comes after a cat playing fetch with her favorite toy of a plastic fork cheered everyone up.
