By now, cats have become pretty famous for a few common traits they all seem to share. A few examples are their holier-than-thou attitudes and 3 a.m. zoomies that keep their owners up all night, trying to hide their pets' noisiest toys. But another thing about cats that any cat owner can confirm is true is how much they hate their #1 enemy out there, and that is water.
One white Hemingway cat has made quite a splash (excuse the pun) on TikTok after coming face-to-face with this enemy recently. In a video posted by @marcelinethecatqu33n, this social media sensation can be seen slowly losing her mind at the thought of her human setting up a bath, and viewers were left in hysterics. The calm bathroom setting indicated that this cat's human was about to enjoy some quality relaxation time when the cat became all too intrigued by the activity that was about to take place. Curiously but cautiously, the furry inspector tiptoed closer with a shocked expression on her face before hilariously running away on two legs. But then, curiosity got the best of her again, so she went back and approached the bathtub.
Back and forth went the hilarious cat, in a hilariously dramatic show, much to the amusement of users in the comments section. "'You’re in there willingly??'😂," one person wrote, guessing the thoughts going on in the cat's head based on her hilariously strange response to the water-filled tub. Another user wrote, "home girl is PANICKING 😔🤣🤣," while someone else commented, "The THUMBS." The hilarious video, which has been viewed by almost 20 million TikTokers since it was posted on Thursday, October 12, has garnered more than 3 million likes so far. The hilarious caption under the video read, "She gets weirder ever day 🤣." LOL. No doubt there.

Will cats ever be accept the thought of their humans bathing in water, let alone themselves? Well, anyone who's ever owned a cat probably wouldn't be too hopeful about that, but luckily, there are a few ways to make our feline friends more comfortable with getting their fur wet. One tactic is to toss in a floating toy or a treat to make the water seem more appealing. Another is to start small, maybe just dipping in a paw or two at first. But even if these approaches don't work, at least we can always count on our cats to make us laugh at the smallest things.
