2016: Year of the Monkey Cat

Cat + Monkey 2016 was uploaded to YouTube on New Year's Eve and then re-posted on Facebook two days ago, and has already racked up 6 million views.

The bizarre film shows a little ginger cat in a monkey costume. Its owner films the grumpy looking feline licking a banana while inexplicably surrounded by fruit.

Another kitty pal comes into shot and seems confused as to why his furry friend looks different.
