The excitement of Christmas morning was too much for one ferocious feline.

Andrew Woodward was ripping through the wrapping paper of his Christmas gift when the family cat suddenly pounced on him, clawing his head, ear and neck.

Was his cat jealous of the Playstation 4 he was opening up on Christmas morning? No one knows what provoked the attack but since the video was posted by Woodward's friend Jessica Freeman and has been shared over 200,000 times.

What's more impressive is the video has been viewed nearly 90 million times in less than a week's time. And of course with popularity comes criticism, as some have cried animal abuse saying the animal was purposely provoked to attack Woodward.

Freeman quickly clapped back at critics saying that Andrew was the person hurt here—"not a cat."

You can clearly see him walk up and calmly sit while planning his attack … Only in 2016 would people blame a person who didn’t touch an animal for getting attacked by said animal bc they were excited

A trip to the doctor and a few stitches later and it seems as if Andrew will make a full recovery.
