The sound of an alarm has to be one of the most hated sounds among the human race, but did you know that animals don’t always take a fancy to it either?
For us, an alarm symbolizes early mornings, mismatched socks, snoozing to the point where we barely even have time to get dressed in the morning, and just general yuck-ness. So we can forgive animals for feeling the same way as us.
To an animal, an alarm means that their human is getting up for the day, and if they work, it’s likely that they’re going to be leaving them for some time. Of course, this isn’t great for your pet, who wants attention, food, and play time on demand. If an alarm causes their human to get up and leave the house all day, then they’re not having it.
So when we came across a video titled, “Cranky Cat Turns Off Phone Alarm,” we knew that this cat was our soul mate.
Captioned, “My companion and I were arriving late to work because the phone alarm wasn’t waking us up. Recently, we have discovered that our kitty Joaquim was the one who was turning off the alarm,” the video shows the cat sitting on a nearby TV stand, where it seems that the anticipation of the imminent alarm seems to have already put him in a bad mood.
Meanwhile, the cat’s owner lies in bed and films the moment before her alarm is about to go off. It’s lucky that she’s woken up early today, as the cranky cat has made a habit of turning off her alarm and causing her and her friend to be late for work!
The moment has arrived, and the alarm begins to go off. Almost instantly, the cat gets up from the TV stand and walks over to the bedside table. He appears to be in no rush, but there’s certainly a sense of frustration about him.
As soon as the cat reaches the phone and attempts to silence the alarm, his patience finally begins to wear thin. Despite him repeatedly swiping at the phone, the dratted thing won’t turn off, and he’s had enough of the horrible noise.
But it doesn’t take long for the cat to turn off the alarm, and now peace can be resumed. In a bid to show his owner how mad he is about her phone playing such a horrible racket every day, the cat jumps onto the bed and begins attacking her arm.
It’s safe to say that someone isn’t a morning person.
The hilarious video was shared onto YouTube by ViralHog, and soon received over 1.2 million views. People around the world took to the comments to share their love for the video:
“Somehow, that cat is smart enough to dismiss an iPhone alarm. That’s incredible.”
“Turns off the alarm and then bites your arm like crazy, love this kitten.”
“But this cat takes care of people and allows them to sleep as much as they want :)”
“I can’t wait for them to show this to their bosses!”
We have to admit, if we were this person’s boss, we’d probably find the whole thing hilarious! Watch the cranky cat in action below.
