Baby Copies Cat in Hilarious Viral Video

A video showing a baby and a cat sitting opposite each other in near-identical poses has gone viral with a whopping 4.7 million views.

The footage, shared to TikTok on September 22 by an account called
Fittzzzz, begins by filming a baby girl sitting upright on the living room carpet with her legs spread far apart.

The young child has some brightly colored toys in front of her, but looks up when the man filming asks: "Where did you learn to sit like that?"

The camera then pans across the room to show that a fluffy ginger cat is sitting opposite the child, also upright and with its hind legs spread far apart.

Having answered his own question, the man says: "Oh!"

In the comments, the TikToker Fittzzzz explains: "That's my baby girl! 8 months and 4 days old!

"Her name is Blakely and she loves her kitties! Show her some love!"

The adorable video of Blakely and her pet, which can be watched here, has received more than 950,000 likes in the two days since it was posted.

Thousands of viewers have also left comments on the clip.

One TikTok user, Andreaa Gonzalezk, pointed out that a third person could be seen on the sofa in the background of the clip, posting: "Looks like whoever is sitting in the back is sitting the same way."

Another person, Natalie Boggs, wrote: "You can tell they are related. They kind of look alike."

Robin Dawn Orozco stated: "Lol my cat looks just like yours and sits like that too."

Hannah Coleman posted: "He's passing on his orange cat behavior to the younger generation."

One TikTok user, Fara, was impressed by the baby's flexibility, writing: "I thought she's training to be in the gymnast team from young."

Sunflowersandscotch posted simply: "I can't stop laughing."

Another animal video that has gone viral this week shows a dog with impressive dance moves.

The footage, shared to TikTok on September 22, stars a black Labrador named Jax.

He performs a wide range of dance moves in the clip, including "The CPR," "Back the Fluff Up," "The Funky Cha Cha" and "The Ladder Drills."

The video, which has been watched more than 2 million times, is captioned: "I've got your back ladies [winking emoji] #dogsoftiktok #tippytaps #dogsthatdance #fyp #foryou."
