Reddit viewers have been left in stitches at a video that has effectively proven “curiosity killed the cat”.
The footage shows the moggy eyeing up a vase on a ledge in a man’s living room.
It looks into the opening before casually squeezing into the vase.
But just as it fits in, disaster strikes. The vase topples off the ledge and smashes on the floor with the cat inside.
“Oh my f***ing Christ,” the cameraman shouts as the sound of shattered glass rings out.
The clip was shared to Reddit yesterday, having originally been posted to TikTok.
It has since received more than 18,000 upvotes and viewers were quick to voice their thoughts in the comments section.

Some were left creasing at the incident, with one saying: “Thanks for the belly laugh. Worth every penny if it were mine.”
Another commented: “I just watched this a half dozen times. I am now in tears from laughing so hard.”
But others criticised the filmer for not stepping in.
“Don't be mad dude,” one said. “You could've stopped it instead of sitting on your ass recording.”
Another commented: “Imagine how terrifying that was for the cat.
“It’s almost pitch black, the vase starts rotating, a sudden drop for half a second, cat’s stomach drops, a very loud crash, shards of the vase splash around as it stands & takes the first step to bolt.
“It probably has a couple of bruises.”
It is not the first time cats’ actions have seen them become internet sensations.
Footage surfaced yesterday of a cat refusing to give up her bed despite the attempts of two angry dogs.
