A game of cat and gibbon! Gangly ape just wants to play with kitty

This is the hilarious moment a friendly gibbon tried to play with a pet cat in Indonesia.

The amusing scene, which was filmed last month near Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, shows the gangly two-year-old ape chasing after the cat because he wants to play.

According to their owner, the two pets are friends and can often be found playing together.

However, the gibbon does have a habit of nipping the cat's back, which means the feline sometimes runs away.

Gibbons live in tropical and subtropical rainforests from eastern Bangladesh and northeast India to southern China and Indonesia.
