The video posted by @tiger_thee_tabby already has over 1 million views on TikTok and hundreds of comments from users. The video shows a cat walking dangerously on the edge of a handrail upstairs before the camera pans to another cat who is looking up in shock.

The caption along with the video read: “When your cat is being so dangerous even your other cat is in shock.” along with the post caption: “Scarlet is a widdle kitty daredevil, it scares me.”

In the comments, the poster explained that this is nothing new for Scarlet and they always stand under her and put pillows around the bottom incase she falls.

“She has not ever fallen but I’ll always be prepared in case she does,” the poster wrote.

Speaking of the other cat, one user comments: “He was like, ‘don’t do it, bro, don’t do it’.”

Cats have a natural instinct to climb and perch in high places. This behavior is rooted in their wild ancestors, who used to climb trees to avoid predators, hunt for prey, and establish a territory.

In domestic cats, this behavior is often seen as a way to observe their surroundings and feel safe and secure. Being up high allows them to keep an eye on their environment, and this gives them a sense of control and comfort. Additionally, cats are natural climbers and have a unique ability to balance and move nimbly in narrow spaces, which allows them to explore and access new areas.
