When you hear a cat roaring, the first thing that comes to mind is a big cat, such as a lion, leopard, tiger, or jaguar. However, this housecat from a viral TikTok video attempted to break the stereotype for its failed attempt at a roar.
Science proves that housecats can't roar due to their biological physiology, just like big cats don't purr. That doesn't stop either animal from attempting impressions of their family members.
Perhaps, the cat Merlin watched a "big cat documentary" or movie (The Lion King), which boosted its confidence.
Check out the faint roar below.
