TikTok user Mariah Garrett uploaded a video to the platform which showed her two cats seemingly recreating the pivotal moment from the Lion King.

Like Scar and Mustafa, the cats are related but rather than brothers, the villainous black cat is actually the ginger tabby’s father.

Straight from a Disney movie

The hilarious video shows a black cat and a ginger tabby balancing precariously on the edge of a mattress that’s propped against the wall.

The black cat mercilessly edges forward, leaving the ginger cat with nowhere to go.

Just like in the film, the ginger tabby manages to get a claw to the “cliff” edge and turns to face his nemesis. And, just like in the film, the black cat hits at the tabby’s paws to ensure he can hold on no longer and goes plummeting to the floor.

Down but not out

But don’t worry, no cats were harmed in the making of this film! Unless, you count a bruised ego and some hurt feelings, that is…

The video proved to be a huge hit and currently has over 333,000 views!

TikTok users commented that the cats were clearly actors who must have “rehearsed the scene hundreds of times.”

Another user said,

“You clearly just posted a clip of the original movie.”
