Cats are masters of finding different ways to communicate, including purring, meowing, and blinking. However, this clever cat has upped the ante with a new tactic.
Demanding clever cat
Meet Zoey, the crafty diva cat with an appetite and an attitude to match. In a viral Tik Tok post posted on August 19th, the orange beauty is seen lying on the living room floor of her owner’s home.
Sitting beside the cat is her secret weapon of manipulation. It may appear to be an ordinary food bowl, but to Zoey, it’s a mastery tool.
In the video clip with captions, Zoey is lying on the floor next to her food bowl while her human owner sits on the sofa in the background watching TV.
Zoey decides it’s time to eat and springs into action to get her owner’s attention.
Using her right paw, the crafty cat rocks her food bowl back and forth on the floor. With no reaction from her human, the cat continues for a few more seconds, looking back at her with dismay.
The captioned video clip reads, “She’s not going to get up.” as the cat looks at her human and back at the camera.
Then without warning, Zoey’s human rises from the sofa to get the chunky cat food.
“Holy crap! I must be dreaming.” the captions display. To Zoey’s disbelief and delight, her human gives her some kibble in her bowl.
Zoey repositions herself and hugs her food bowl as she nibbles on her food with satisfaction. The ending captions display, “Dreams do come true. Delicious”
This clever cat’s mission is accomplished.
The viral post received over 1.8 million views online. Viewers and fans of fat cat Zoey shared their sentiments in the comments.
One commenter noticed the clever cat’s demanding demeanor and stated, “Zoey knows you’re right there and she wants some service NOW.”
Another shared their opinion about the feeding, noting, “She has done laid all the way down and got comfortable before the first bite! I love this baby!”
An amused fan wrote, “Imagine if you had one of the timed feeders, [S]he’d be sitting in front of it 24/7 lol.”
Lastly, a fellow cat mom with an overweight cat chimed in, stating, “I love this cat. [S]he makes my day with the bowl rocking lol. I have a very needy 25 pound diabetic insulin-dependent cat, so I know the feeling.”
Cat lovers and viewers online were left entertained and amused by this crafty diva cat’s antics to manipulate her owner into giving her food. You can see more of Zoey’s tricks by following her TikTok page or on Instagram.
