A new trend on TikTok is making various pets feel personally attacked. (It's all in good jest though, of course.) Pet owners have recently started recording how their dog, cat, or even cockatiel react when they suddenly stop petting them.

The videos are fittingly set to that famous "stop, wait a minute!" moment in Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk," and the reactions are pretty true to form, with dogs pulling out the puppy eyes once they realise the petting has been paused, and cats pretty much not giving a f*ck. The cockatiel's reaction, however, might actually be one of the cutest. Enjoy some of our favourites ahead.
