Cat Decluttering Owner's Bathroom Praised by Internet: 'Cleaning Day'

A Bengal cat has gone viral for its "decluttering skills" thanks to a video of it knocking over its owner's toiletries.

The clip posted on TikTok by @laterius5 shows the cat sitting on a bathroom shelf above a toilet—and systematically knocking over all the items kept there, including deodorant spray, toilet rolls and an air freshener.

The video has been watched more than 1.4 million times since it was posted on Monday and received over 60,000 likes in less than two days.

The cat in the clip has the Bengal breed's characteristic leopard-like coat, covered with rosettes.

According to ASPCA insurance, the Bengal's rosettes or spots come in a variety of colors, such as rust, chocolate brown or black. The coats can be golden, rust, brown, orange, sand and ivory.

Their size varies, but Bengals tend to weigh between 8 and 15 pounds. Their height ranges from 13 to 16 inches.

While a cat's personality usually has a lot to do with its environment, the breed tends to have characteristics that stem from its wildcat heritage. Bengal cats are typically intelligent, energetic, confident and alert.

The Bengal is attributed to Jean Mill, a California-based breeder. She began crossing the domestic shorthair with the leopard cat—a type of wildcat native to South, Southeast and East Asia—in 1963. The International Cat Association accepted the Bengal as a new domestic cat breed in 1986.

The website Bengal Cat Republic estimates that there are between 500,000 and 1.2 million Bengals in the world and more than 2,000 registered breeders. Demand for the relatively new breed is rising, according to the site.

The Bengal cat in @laterius5's TikTok certainly has plenty of fans. One user, Sharon Zanghi, commented: "Fabulous. Before there was too much clutter now it's perfect."

Brent joked: "I've told you over and over again not to put stuff on my ledge."

Another user, Monica Hope wrote: "Cleaning day." Lissa Herndon Suda added: "Cats are such decorators. Always going for the minimalist look."

Z.shah commented: "Finally room to sit! Job well done gorgeous." Thomasonn981 posted: "he said u don't need these anymore."
