All the cool cats love to dance and that was certainly the case with this trio of groovy kittens.

As American singer-songwriter Charlie Puth's recent hit, Left and Right, plays in the background, the cats can be seen nodding in perfect sync to the upbeat pop song.

And, in typical internet style, the video has struck a chord with viewers, having been posted on Instagram via the account catsdoingthings which has 1.5 million followers.

So far, it has attracted more than 26,000 likes and, who knows, there's every chance it could end up becoming the song's signature move on dance floors up and down the land.

As it is, though, we can tell these kitties have an early love of music. “Very well synchronized,” said one commenter.

It's also interesting to note that music is good for cats, especially if a tune has been specially composed for felines.

Studies suggest music can help with anxiety in cats – researchers from Louisiana State University were among those showing a reduction in stress.

Classical music has also been shown to calm cats and now, it would appear, we can add Puth to the list.
