Cat's Grumpy Reaction to Owner Dancing Amuses Internet: 'Not Having It'

A grumpy cat's reaction to its owner dancing to an old tune in front of the TV has gone viral, leaving the internet in stitches.

In a video shared by the cat's owner, who goes by the username lineonpaper on TikTok, the maine coon cat can be seen looking mad, and moving its ears towards the back of its head as the woman danced, a sign that he was definitely not pleased by the show she put on.

The woman was simply dancing to a tune by Toto from the late 1970s, when her cat decided she was having too much fun for its liking, land began looking like it was plotting an evil revenge.

The post, which has so far reached 54,800 likes, 1308 comments and 3627 reshares since Monday, features the short clip and a caption that says: "My cat is a joy."

According to Maine Coon Central, maine coon cats are widely known for their "playful nature," and while other cats grow calmer with age, maine coons keep their "kitty-like playfulness" their entire life.

Although this doesn't seem to be the case with the cat in the video.

The average lifespan of a maine coon ranges between 12 and 15 years. They are also the largest domesticated cat breed, while female maine coons weigh between 8 and 12 pounds on average, the males of the species weight of between 15 and 25 pounds.

They also have unusually long tails, in fact while the average cat's tail measures around 12 inches long, maine coon tails are usually around 16 inches in length.
