TL;DR – Curiosity (almost) killed the cat.
The proverb “curiosity killed the cat” almost came true for this curious feline who just couldn’t keep its paws off an electricity switchboard.
In a tweet shared by a Twitter user, she uploaded four photographs that show a cat fiddling with an open switchboard.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go so well for the cat, who receives a mild electric shock from the switchboard, which gave the cat a new hairdo.
The tweet went viral and has garnered over 14,000 likes and received tons of comments.
While there were netizens who were amused by the cat:
He came out looking like Rick of Rick and Morty

There were also people who were obviously not very pleased with what has happened to the cat:
Go get a shock and create your own alright. Then let people enjoy talking all such on you and tell me honestly how it feel.

Wickedness, why didn’t you stop it

Thankfully, no real harm has been done, but this serves as a reminder to keep clear of open switchboards!
