This jealous toddler cried at his pet cat sat in a shoebox until it jumped out so he could settle down in it instead.

Machiavellian Michael Shaw started to cry when he saw pet puss Cookie start to curl up in the empty space at home in Virginia, USA.

Michael’s dad, William, said: “We thought it was hilarious and were glad to have captured it on video.”
