Internet in Stitches as Cat Demands Midnight Snack: ‘Death Stare’

There’s nothing cats love more than a tasty snack, but unlike dogs, they won’t simply ask for it and perform tricks to get it; they will demand the treat and expect it.

A hilarious clip shared on TikTok on Thursday, under the username @puffindoestricks, shows a Scottish fold from Alaska arguing with his owner about getting a midnight snack, using his talking buttons to tell her off.

The video shows Puffin standing by the buttons, repeatedly tapping the “treat” and “now” buttons. His owner tries to explain to him that he can’t have anymore because he has had enough and it’s time for bed. In the end, the poster asks Puffin what else he would like and he picks catnip, to which his owner agrees.

Cats are way more clever than we give them credit for. The feline wellness experts at Catster say that our domesticated felines are so smart that they not only recognize their owner’s voice, but they might also be able to pick out particular words, though only in very specific circumstances.

“However, felines zone out most of what you say as they only recognize certain words. Even the words they recognize don’t have the same meaning to them that they do to us,” the website added.

Although cats don’t have the intellectual abilities to give meanings to specific words, when they hear you say something to them, like their name, they immediately know that something is about to happen that involves them.
