A video capturing a cat's jealous reaction to its owner petting another cat has gone viral, racking up 7.6 million views since its October 21 release.

The video shows the cat sitting on a couch, glaring at its owner who is interacting with another feline. Social media users have been quick to comment on the cat's seemingly jealous demeanor, with remarks ranging from finding the cat's expression "priceless" to others empathizing with the feline's apparent sense of betrayal.

The face of jealousy

The video's caption aptly states, "This is what jealousy looks like," and it's hard to argue with that assessment. The cat's expression speaks volumes, as it watches its owner give attention to another feline.

The video has not only garnered millions of views but has also sparked a variety of comments. Some users expressed sympathy for the jealous cat, suggesting someone should pet it to alleviate its apparent distress. Others humorously noted that the cat seemed to be plotting its revenge.

The video raises questions about the emotional depth of cats. While it's easy to anthropomorphize animals, attributing human emotions to them, the cat's reaction does make one wonder about the extent to which pets experience feelings like jealousy.
