T.J. Browne Jr. is clearly an animal lover. With five cats living among his family, Browne is a certified “Cat Dad.”

But that doesn’t mean that he’s above playing a little prank on his felines. Donning a creepy cat mask anyone sane would be terrified to see, Browne simply looks at his cats at they were all chowing down on some food in a crib for some reason.
