It got weird 😅
Meeting a cat can happen in a variety of ways, from pleasant flips at the feet and face-rubs on the shins to coy glances that suggest a pet or two might be allowed. There’s also a chance of hearing hisses and scratching.
Then there’s the story of how @bennynazareth, a TikTok user, met his neighbor’s cat.
They met while they both watched from the balconies of their residences in Milan, Italy. And it was just plain awkward, to be honest.

There’s no telling, of course, what exactly was going through the neighbor cat’s mind as she perched outside to soak up some sun, only to wind up having to share the moment with some stranger next door.
Admittedly, though, she didn’t seem particularly pleased.
It’s worth noting that, although @bennynazareth joked that the cat was “a stalker,” only one of them was filming the other that day, presumably without asking first.
That said, cats can be moody — and unafraid of letting their feelings be known.
Regardless, for the sake of peace, here’s hoping their icy, awkward relations will thaw. (Or, perhaps as the steely-eyed cat might suggest, her nosy neighbor could go ahead and find a new place to move to.)
