'Nosey' Cat Caught Peeking to Watch Street Drama in Hilarious Video

A video of a cat being "nosey" and looking out a window has gone viral on TikTok.

The short clip posted from the TikTok account @snowy_thewhitefloof, which had 1.1 million likes at the time of writing, shows a white cat standing on its hind legs while peeking through the opening of the window.

The video was overlaid with a message that read: "Noise in the back garden. Went to see what's going on but my cat beat me to it."

The caption of the post said: "Need to know [other] people business [crying laughing emoji]. #noisycat #othersbusiness #neighbors #cat #catsoftiktok."

Much like the feline friend in the latest viral video, cats are naturally curious and can be easily stimulated.

An August 2017 study in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS One said there are "five reliable factors that depict domestic cat personality," and among these is extraversion. Curiosity is among the traits of extraversion, along with being active, vigilant, inquisitive, inventive and smart, the study said.

The four other personality factors highlighted in the study included neuroticism, dominance, impulsiveness and agreeableness.

The study said highly impulsive cats "may be reacting to something stressful in their environment," while cats with "low agreeableness" scores that display irritability "may indicate underlying pain or illness."

A March 2017 study published in the peer-reviewed journal Behavioural Processes said "it is still common belief that cats are not especially sociable or trainable," and "this disconnect" may be due to a lack of knowledge of what stimuli cats prefer.

While preference may vary according to the cat, "social interaction with humans was the most-preferred stimulus category for the majority of cats, followed by food," according to the study.

Meanwhile, the latest TikTok video has left users in stitches, with many also impressed by the pet's lean physique.

In a comment that got over 1,600 likes, user Michelle Jean Crook said: "My cat is nosey like that [crying laughing emoji] she never misses anything."

User seabassplayer advised: "Remind snowy what curiosity did to the other cats."

In a comment that got over 50,000 likes, user Maria said: "jeez that cats in good shape."

User Iris Loc remarked, "workout routine [please]," in a comment that received over 23,000 likes. Karolina agreed, stating: "Snowy, we need your workout routine [muscular arm emojis]."

The original poster replied, "Sleep all day , zoomies all night [crying laughing emoji]," in a comment that got over 1,200 likes.

In a comment that got over 20,000 likes, C R E A M P U F F noted: "Cat's quite muscular [crying laughing emojis]." And user andie_petersen commented: "he's ripped and [well] informed [crying laughing emoji]."
