People Are Giving Their Cats Eggs To See If They'll "Protect" Them, And The Results Are Giving Me Heart Eyes

Humpty Dumpty would probs still be alive if he had a cat!

So here's the thing: I'm a proud Cat Person™, and like many of my fellow cat people, I sometimes struggle to convince others that despite all the propaganda, cats are actually, in fact, nice.

Although, it's pretty hard for me to understand how people can think badly of cats when they have little cutie faces like this.

Welp, I now have proof! Cat owners on TikTok have started giving their kitties eggs to see if they'll "protect" them, and the results are adorable. The trend was presumably started by TikTok user @annafromtiktok, since it was the earliest TikTok I can find and has the original audio. It also seems to have originated from the Golden Retriever Egg Challenge.

Meanwhile, this one gave their egg sweet sweet kisses and WOULD NOT let their owner take it back:
