Take a tiny moment out of your day to appreciate the latest TikTok challenge trend, which involves giving cats an egg to see what they do with it. From what I can tell with the results, it’s really a litmus test to see how much of a total jerk your cat is, because some of these felines are just straight up bastards, I tell you what.

Started by @annafromtiktok, the challenge sees people placing an egg next to their cat to see what they do with it. It’s very precious and wholesome content that I absolutely end up watching for ages at like 3am when I’m meant to be sleeping but hey, it’s a good chance to smooth your brain for a little while. We all deserve a little brain mush, as a treat.

Some of the TikTok kitties protect the egg with their fluffy legs, others treat it like it’s a new toy, some just straight-up bat it onto the floor (a classic of the cat genre), and most of them just kinda look at it curiously and immediately lick it.

Please, observe.
