A black cat happily sliding down a concrete slope is winning hearts on the Internet, wracking up close to 7.5 million views since it was posted on the 3rd of November.

In the short 12 second clip, a fun-loving feline can be seen turning a slanting, pillar-like structure into his own slide, gliding down to the bottom only to run straight back up to do it all over again.

Shared on Twitter by user Buitengebieden and re-tweeted over 62,000 times, the caption of the 12-second video reads, "Cat slide", and it's proved a huge hit with netizens around the world who can't get enough of the adorable kitty's antics.

"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.
