This cat was in for the most unwelcome surprise of its life.

Look at this fearful feline, who jumps sky-high in terror when toast pops out of the toaster near it. Not even the toast goes flying as high in the air as this poor creature.

This is going to leave some emotional scars. We doubt the cat will ever be able to eat breakfast quite the same way again.

And, hey, memo to the cat's owners: make sure your little pet is on another floor of your house the next time you make waffles.
