According to VCA Animal Hospitals, even though cats may be considered as aloof, they are basically social creatures, and bonded pairs reflect the natural instinct of felines to form a pack.

The website states: "Like their ancestors in the wild, cats thrive in a pack where there is a stable social structure that provides comfort and security. Interestingly, the bond doesn't have to be familial. Bonded pairs can be siblings, but don't have to be related at all."

The video has quickly gained popularity across the platform, receiving over 1.1 million views and 363,700 likes so far.
