- A cat has become popular online after a video showed it 'scaring' away passersby
- To do that, it scratched at their legs just when some of them did not suspect a cat was nearby
- While some tweeps said it is marking its territory, others said it is just being cute
While cats are considered as lovely pets by many, their drawn-out claws are not something to be toyed with when they are in an attack mode.
A funny video of a cat clawing at unsuspecting passersby has gone viral on the internet. In the clip, a cat stood by the roadside and tried to 'scare' away people by scratching at their legs.
Whenever the cat attempted that, passersby would jump as if something hot just jolted them into reality.
Many have reacted to the video which has been watched over 200,000 times on Twitter. Some cat owners said that it may just be its signal for wanting food.
See the video below:
Below are some of the reactions to the video:

"Nigerian cat parents, let's show off our babies. Meet Shadow. She's 6months old. I really wish the stereotypes on cats can stop. They are amazing buddies, extra clean, playful and responsible.
"If you haven’t gotten one yet, please do but make sure you take care of him/her/them well. Feed them, play with them and take them to the Vet regularly."
