Move over, all other adorable cat trends, because Monkey Cat has already won 2016.

In a video uploaded to Facebook on New Year’s Eve by community member Cats, a cat dressed in a monkey suit poses in several hilarious positions.

First, Monkey Cat enjoys a banana.

Finally, another cat approaches and is utterly baffled by the cat/monkey creature.

The video has already been viewed on Facebook more 7.9 million times and has been shared and liked more than 100,000 times each since it was first posted.

However, several commenters have claimed it’s cruel for a cat to wear a monkey suit. The suit itself seems to a stuffed monkey toy with the face part cut out and placed on the cat’s head. No other part of the costume seems to be on the cat’s body.

Because cats naturally seem so mysterious and unfazed, it’s hard to tell if this cat is experiencing any discomfort here. But cats also have zero time for tolerating human BS, so we have a feeling this cat would refuse to wear the monkey getup if needed.

And we think we call all agree, it certainly is adorable.
