"Cat slide/back scratcher! Win-win situation!," wrote one user, with another adding "So many ways that animals express their sense of humor that is similar to humans!! How cute is that!"

For other Twitterers, it's the black cat's expression that has captured their attention, with one writing "The thing that gets me is the cat seeming surprised and bewildered when it comes to a stop at the bottom. Like, it's clearly intentionally sliding down that thing, and the fact that it's being recorded implies that it's not the first time, but somehow the cat is still befuddled!"

While the feline was filmed going down the slide twice, he went on to repeat the game several more times, proving just how utterly adorable and entertaining cats and their antics are.
