It was curiosity that got this cat into trouble when it tried to eat an octopus, prompting the cephalopod to clamp on to the furry feline’s face.
In a YouTube video, the cat can be seen going to investigate a paddling pool filled with tentacle-bearing creatures. As it goes in for a closer look, the octopus retaliates by giving the cat an eight-armed face hug, reminiscent of a terrifying scene from the 1979 science fiction movie “Alien,” notes Daily Mail.
Watch the animals go up against each other below:
