Internet crazes come and go every year, sometimes in a matter of days. But this sensation involving confused dogs has spanned a number of weeks—mostly because it’s so much fun.
It’s a challenge that involves “disappearing” behind a blanket in front of your dog, prompting them to react.
This trend has swept the Internet recently, given that, most of the time, the dogs don’t know what to do with themselves upon seeing their owner “vanish.”
Chances are, you’ve probably seen videos of this challenge yourself.
"What the fluff?!" 😱 This is the best one yet 😂😍

It’s no surprise that this challenge is as popular as it is, given how many of us love dogs.
But then, there’s the question of cats.
Cats are known to be non-affectionate, so one can imagine how they would react to this challenge.
Whereas dogs tend to hang on our every move, we can go long periods of time without being acknowledged by our cats.
Usually, it’s nothing personal, it’s just the way they are.
Considering this, one could ask the question: would a cat care even the slightest bit if we “disappeared” right in front of their eyes?
This man on Instagram, Jordan, wanted to find it out for himself.
On video, we see him attempting the challenge with his own cat.
Once Jordan “disappears,” the cat perks up his head.
Perhaps the cat thought that he disappeared through the wall, because he goes straight up to the wall in the back.
We see the cat frantically pawing at said wall; maybe it was trying to find the secret lever?
But in the end, the point was proven. Though this cat might not speak for the millions of others in the world, at least we can say that this one even slightly cares about his human.
And Jordan also reassures the viewers that the cat didn’t spend too much time being confused.
“Don’t worry, he eventually found me,” Jordan said in the post.
It might be fun to try this challenge with your own cat, though it’s not guaranteed that you would get the same result.
Bringing cats into this… Don’t worry, he eventually found me. #whatthefluff #whatthefluffchallenge #catsofinstagram #cats #catscaretoo * Jukin Media Verified * Find this video and others like it by visiting https://www.jukinmedia.com/licensing/view/992885 For licensing / permission to use, please email licensing(at)jukinmedia(dot)com.
