A poor woman’s screams of terror have been heard across the Chinese internet this week with video going viral of a cat suddenly dropping from the ceiling of a bank in the Henan capital of Zhengzhou.
As seen in surveillance footage, the kitty plummets straight onto the desk of an unsuspecting worker who proceeds to freak out. Similarly frightened, the animal scampers away to look for an exit. It’s not clear how exactly the cat came to be in the ceiling, but it likely slipped into the building via its air-conditioning system.
On the bright side, at least the animal wasn’t a snake. Last October, a staff meeting at a bank in Nanning was interrupted when a python fell through the ceiling.
