July 28 (UPI) -- A cockatoo that opened a box to find a kitten that was a little too playful responded in the most logical way -- slamming the box shut.
A video posted July 19 to Twitter by user @masaki_1133 shows the Japanese user's pet cockatoo, Karin, curiously approaching a woven box on the dining room table.
The bird uses its beak to open the box, revealing a small kitten.
The kitten takes a couple swipes at Karin's nose, leading the cockatoo to respond by calmly slamming the box shut on the feline.
The cockatoo's savage plot twist earns a bout of surprised laughter from the amused pet owner.
Karin, apparently satisfied that the feisty feline has learned its lesson, spins the box before opening it again and backing away.
