TikTokers have described a cat recognizing a fellow feline's mirror as "one step away from self recognition."
Who goes by Maggie on the platform, posted a video of a ginger cat fumbling with a mirror on the social media app.
"What a goooob," the owner humorously captioned a video of two cats, thought to be named Phineas and Hector.
"Phin is quite bewildered as to how Hector is there, but also in the mirror," she said as she recalled the scene.
As he paws the glass, Phineas looks back from the reflection to the real-life cat.
He then touches his peer, looking back and forth between the reflection and the flesh-and-blood cat, still concerned.
