There is no dearth of adorable animal content to brighten your day. And while some furry friends can be quite mischievous, others can get pretty creative with their antics. Now, a video of two felines playing on a high shelf is reminding people of an iconic scene from The Lion King.

The video shows one fluffy cat perched atop a shelf high up on the wall, while another is dangling from it. In a clear tussle for the throne, one emerges victorious while the second one falls down — reminding people of the Disney film.

Much like the duel between King Mufasa and his estranged brother Scar — the one sitting comfortably is seen swatting at the other’s paw, causing it to lose its balance and fall off from the ledge.

Take a look at the actual scene here:

“Cat plays out a scene from The Lion King,” a user posted on a Reddit subgroup, leaving netizens laughing out loud. For the uninitiated, the user referred to the scene from the superhit film, where Mufasa is dangling from a cliff, and Scar pushed him over the edge.

However, people hoped it did not have a tragic ending here. Comments poured in about the uncanny similarities, with one saying: “I’ve seen so many cats reenacting the scene, that now I’m convinced it was based on real life events.” Another joked, “I’m pretty sure that there was a National Geographic photo that served as an inspiration for the Lion King that looked like this.”
