The internet has been going crazy over a video of a cat after it discovered its owner’s not-so-secret pet cam. First posted to Reddit, it has already received more than 30,000 upvotes and Beans (the cat) has become a viral sensation – or as one Redditor referred to him, a 'MewTuber'.

We’ve all wondered what our pets get up to when we’re not at home, and thanks to modern camera technology it’s pretty cheap and easy to find out. The best pet cameras or best spy cameras enable you to sneakily record what’s happening at home even when you’re not there. These days they come with features such as motion control, voice activation and can even shoot in 4K but, despite an attempt to be discreet, Beans sussed out his owner's game plan.
