What just happened? Cat attacks owner when it discovers her in a suitcase

This video will leave you wondering what just happened. A video quickly going viral on social media shows an owner being attacked as she’s playing a trick on her cat by jumping out of a suitcase.

The cat can be seen repeatedly attacking the owner as the owner first turns to a piece of clothing (or a blanket) placed between her and her livid cat.

When that fails, the owner exits the room and we hear the attack as it continues.

So, what happened? Why would this cat attack the owner? I’m not sure whether I’d attempt any more practical jokes on the family cat.

NOTE FROM MICHAEL: My impression is that (a) there was tension in the home anyway which heightened the chance of one of the cats ‘losing it’ and becoming aggressive and (b) the woman becomes a hostile, unknown entity from the cats’ perspective after she hides in the suitcase and emerges. She knows that her cat will react like this because it happened before and it’s the reason why she is videoing it! She wanted a viral video and she made it. It is a created situation for the video. I feel a bit sorry for the cats to be honest because they are being used to make a video.

Note: sources for news articles are carefully selected but the news is often not independently verified.
