Most cats seem to think it's always playtime, just like this playful puss who took advantage of an empty playground to enjoy a slide when they thought no one was looking.

Whether it's exuberant sprints around the house, kitty wrestling with their four-legged siblings or just playing with their toys, It's no secret that most cats like to play. 

But what you may not expect to see is a cat having fun using the play equipment in a kids playground.

Caught on film!

The person behind the camera just so happened to be looking out the window at exactly the right moment, not only that, but they also had their camera phone in hand to capture the moment. 

The clip starts with a view over some roofs and a children's playground in the distance. Something must have caught the eye of the person holding the camera as they quickly zoom in closer on the play equipment.

Playful puss

And that's when you can see something small and black sliding down the blue slide. When it reaches the bottom, the little black figure jumps off. With four legs and a long tail, there's no mistaking that it's a cat!

The playful feline then disappears out of view underneath the slide. But within a couple of seconds, the black cat reappears at the top. Suddenly it launches itself forward for another fun slide down.

The remarkable clip was originally posted on Reddit, with one Redditor suggesting the cat only resumed acting like a cat because it sensed it was being watched!
