A cat is perched near the window sill, staring intently at an object out of the camera range. The grey kitty is impervious to human distractions, its yellow eyes unblinking and focused.
It stays frozen in place, and does not react to playful poking around its chest and face. The camera then pans in the direction of the cat's area of focus, but there is no bird or object, just the facade of an apartment building.
At the end of the clip, it finally breaks character for a second to look down. Cute or creepy? You decide.
