- A kitten was dubbed as “demonic” for screeching loudly behind a closed door.
- The kitten suddenly switched his loud screeches to softer meows once the door was opened.
- His owner explained that the wind accidentally closed the door so he was calling for his owner’s attention.
The online world can’t get enough of a kitten who seemed to have the ability to quickly switch to a different personality once he got someone’s attention.
In a video shared on TikTok, a kitten can be heard screeching behind a closed door. His loud, incessant screeches prompted the video creator to call him “demonic.” As soon as the door opened, the kitten’s cries immediately switched to calmer, sweeter meows.
The video creator called the kitten a “little cute sassy baby” for instantly changing to his “customer service” voice once he got noticed.
The video, posted on January 17, has since earned 3.8 million views and 554,000 likes on TikTok.
Amused viewers couldn’t help but formulate their own reasoning for the kitten’s cries. One wrote, “bro was fighting his inner demons,” while another joked, “The manipulation really does start young.”

Other viewers, meanwhile, expressed concern for the kitten. One viewer admonished the video creator and commented, “That’s a kitten that desperately needs attention. It’s not demonic, it’s a baby.” Another wrote, “Poor baby was terrified of being in that room all alone.”
Some people suggested that the kitten could be experiencing separation anxiety, which could explain why his mood instantly lifted upon seeing his owner again and why he instantly ran out of the room he was in.
Acording to Chicago-based Metropolitan Veterinary Center, “cats have plenty of different personality types, and many of them do experience separation anxiety” like dogs. Separation anxiety in cats can manifest through excessive meowing or extreme excitement upon being reunited with their owner.
The veterinary center recommends that owners slowly re-train their pets to feel comfortable in their absence. This can start by leaving the cat alone for short periods of time or leaving a television or radio on during that time alone to lessen the feeling of isolation.
The center suggested, “Create a nook, safe haven, or refuge for your cat that is their safe space and provide plenty of toys and/or puzzles for playtime while you are gone.”
The video creator assured concerned viewers that the kitten is safe and well, and that he wasn’t in serious distress. They wrote, “Don’t worry … He was asleep with his mom at that room and mom just woke up staying in the hall. The door was accidentally closed by wind.”

When are you ppl going to understand tiktoc is DEMONIC! yES DEMONIC because it takes innocent, and wholesome and grandstands and warps speed ignorance attacks just for grandioise attention. Asian ‘sense of humor’ just isn’t pure in any sense. Its warped and sick-o mentality is ignorant and stupid.
That poor kitten was lonely and shame on the so called ‘video creator’ for making something which was no fault of the innocent sweet kitten into something warped and sick and twisted! Taking advantage of helpless, voiceless child-like innocence is demonic and sick! Humanity like that are the ones laughing and snickering at someone’s else’s misfortune.

When I had young kittens at my house, they did the same thing when they was left alone in a room with the door shut.,This is not funny either. I think all cats will do that when left alone behind closed doors,
