Never has the saying “curiosity killed the cat” come so close to being true. A post going viral on Twitter explains why. Shared by Twitter user @owurakuwaa, the post contains four photographs that show a pet cat exploring an open switchboard.
Unfortunately, things don’t go well for the cat, who receives a mild electric shock from the switchboard. Pictures shared online show it with hair standing upright, much like a cartoon character’s.
The pictures first appeared online in May this year, when they were shared on Instagram. They resurfaced again when @owurakuwaa shared them on Twitter.
