While trying to get some dinner, a cat got its just desserts after picking on the wrong squid.

In this crazy video, it first appears that the mischievous kitty has the upper hand on its prey. With feline claws and definitely a size advantage, it dips into a pool with the cephalopod. But surprise for the cat because the squid just attaches itself right onto its hunter, turning the tables of the food pyramid.

Unable to see because of a face full of tentacles, the regretful cat stumbles backward and all around.

And while the cat is eventually able to break free and take some bites at the squid, a human comes along to save the slimy sea dweller, obviously frustrated with the cat’s antics.

So much for dinner.
