Student Pays off Tuition Fees with Viral Video of His Cat

Daily Mail
An amusing video of a Scottish student's cat Sox has earned him enough money to pay off his HND course at North East Scotland College.

24 year-old Fraser Napier uploaded the short 1-minute video to YouTube of his cat reacting to its own reflection in his bathroom. The cat is enraptured by his own appearance and the clip has amassed a massive three and a half million views. The man of the moment told the Daily Mail: "One day I noticed Sox sitting on the edge of the bath looking at herself and posing in the mirror above the sink, so I started filming and uploaded a video to YouTube. I just recorded it because I thought it was funny. It was the first time I'd seen her do it so I had to run through to get my phone. 'I only did it because I thought other people might like the video."

That spontaneous moment of filming has done wonders for the young man, as once the video reached 20,000 views on the site he received an email from YouTube informing him that he could get a cut of the advertising revenue. Each view brought him half a US cent, and to date he has raked up £1,800. Ironically, Napier is a budding film-maker - I doubt he thought that this clip of his cat would be his big break. Having now graduated, he is currently looking for a job in TV.

The shocking moment of self-awareness for the feline gives a super-cute insight into a cat's thoughts. The cat is filmed balancing on its hind legs whilst raising a paw in the air. By now you must be positively dying to see it, so here it is:-
