I always say, that if I could live one day as one of my cats, I’d jump at the opportunity – and get some much-deserved beauty sleep. But while we can’t switch places with our pets, thanks to new technologies, we can get a glimpse into their world. With the help of the  Insta360 Go  camera, one innovative cat owner got to see what his four-legged bestie sees – and he’s sharing it with the world on TikTok, where the videos quickly went viral.

The little cat cameraman is named Mr. Kitters, and the footage he made was uploaded to the TikTok channel Mr. Kitters the Cat  (@mr.kitters.the.cat). All the videos feature a “cat’s-eye” view of the world explored by little Mr. Kitters. This POV experience will really show you how it is to be a cat and adventure the wide expanse of the yard on a daily.

One video, titled “Places to go and people to meet”, garnered more than 110 million views on TikTok, an incredible number in itself! The scenario of this video is pure feline fun: Mr.Kitters explores his environment, meeting critters on the way – including a squirrel, whom he seemingly has a conversation with.  

Curiously walking around, the kitty chatters and meows happily all the way – which will confuse your kitty to no end if you watch the videos with the sound on while your pet is in the room, as commenters share. 

"My cat instantly woke up and ran over to me when he heard your cat meowing 😂," wrote one viewer.

"did this cat just have a conversation with the squirrel? 😂😂" another user asked in disbelief. 

"The sounds this cat makes are literally addictive." wrote another.

The comments go on and on in various languages of the world – people’s appreciation for this kitty knows no borders or nationalities, it seems.

Witnessing the popularity, the cat’s owner continued uploading further videos made by Mr.Kitters. Now, the channel has a lot of POV footage, demonstrating the day-to-day routine of a little cat, many of them viral, with views counted in millions. The success of this channel shows us that sometimes all it takes is something super simple, like taking a camera and putting it on a cat’s necklace. But it isn’t all about enjoying the cuteness of these videos – they can also help us learn a lot about feline habits and behavior.
