Watch: Cat freaks out after meeting giant big sister on Halloween
A video has emerged showing the moment when a pet kitty came face to face with a giant version of itself, and it's fair to say that the cat was less than impressed!

Halloween wouldn't be the same if you didn't see at least a few people dressed up as big kitty cats.
But one furry little guy didn't appreciate his owner's Halloween efforts this year.
This cat was not impressed
In this short Youtube clip, a woman is chilling at home with her pet kitty. She also looks likes she's on her way to a Halloween party, although her cat outfit is missing the finishing touch - fake kitty ears.
She dons the faux ears and looks to her cat for final approval from one of the experts. But instead of getting a paw up from her furry friend, the poor critter appears to be completely freaked out by the outfit.
The cat does a quick double-take as if it can't quite believe what he sees. Then he hunches down and slowly starts creeping away from this feline/human hybrid.
After a few giggles, the owner removes the cat ears, and kitty comes running over for a little cuddle.
The clip has over 200k views and hundreds of comments from people trying to figure out the cat's unusual reaction.
One person wrote:
"That's a very odd reaction to something so simple I can't get my cat to react to anything nothing scares them."
Don't try this at home
However, not everyone was impressed with the video. As many people pointed out, the cat's body language reflects a flight or fight reflex, suggesting he felt threatened by his giant impersonator.
In other words, don't try this at home. You might get a few laughs, but your cat probably won't see the funny side.
