In the age of internet cats, it’s hard to be a feline that stands out. Not every kitty with an Instagram account can reach the same heights of fame as Grumpy Cat or the late, great Colonel Meow. Even the web’s latest success story, Valkryie, only made a name for herself because she looks so eerily human, which may lead you to believe we’re running out of ways to be entertained by cats online.
Well, not quite, but the current internet moggie going viral isn’t really a cat at all. You see, someone thought it would be a good idea to turn all of those cats riding roombas videos into one terrifying creation, that will clean your house and haunt your dreams all at the same time.
Japanese Twitter user @sacocho shared a clip of his vaccum-powered feline sliding across a wooden floor, and it’s more than a tad alarming.

And one look at its scarily realistic face is enough to give any nightmares

The white fluffy monster is called Valun. He’s zero-years-old and is comprised mainly of wool. Still, this isn’t the first time Sacocho has used cat-like inventions to freak us out.
Earlier this year, they posted a video of the “Cat Rail”

Part cat, part railway set, Sacocho dubbed the beast “Rel.”
Apparently, they plan to make more of their bizarre cat-machine hybrids, and are even planning to open a cafe dedicated to their designs in the future.
The strangest thing about all of this? Sacocho is apparently a dog person.
I know, we couldn’t believe it either.
