This video is actually over a year old, but it is just starting go viral. In it, a cat is trapped on the balcony of a burning building, while several onlookers are yelling for it to jump… as if the cat actually could understand English.

The reality is that he probably just jumped to prevent himself from being caught in the fire. Still, it is amazing that the people thought they actually were the ones who instructed an animal on how to save itself.

Sadly, what the crowd didn’t see is that the cat jumped right into a pen of hungry dogs…. Just kidding.
