Have you ever wondered just how self-aware your feline friend is?

While there might not be any scientific evidence to prove self-awareness in cats, a video shared online shows the moment an adorable little kitten discovers that it has not one, but TWO back paws and its reaction is priceless.

Pawfect discovery 

The video posted on Reddit shows a tiny fluffy black kitten lying on its back licking one of its back paws. It then lets go of its paw as the kitten suddenly notices it has another identical paw. It stares at the foot in utter disbelief. It then touches it, almost as if to check it really is there.

The kitten then drops the paw looking at it in absolute shock as if trying to get its little head around this dramatic new discovery.

Cute clip

The clip has already had nearly 5k views and more than 120 comments. One Redditor said that it was the “First ever cat to achieve subjective experience” while another called the little kitten an “adorable baby”.

If this kitten was so shocked to discover it has two identical back feet, how will it react when it finds it has a tail!
