We all remember Hungry Hippos, the Repetitive Strain Injury-inducing game where you had to feed those greedy Hippopotamidae.
But such wide-mouthed gluttony doesn’t really happen in nature, does it?
Well, yes. Just ask Luke, from Philadelphia whose video of his two cats eating has been viewed an amazing 6.1million times.
Captioned ‘what in the world kind of pig cat eats like this’ a black feline and a tabby are both chowing down from the same bowl.
The black cat is pretty successful, even though it is dropping quite a bit on the floor.
Tabby on the other hand isn’t having that problem – that food isn’t getting near the floor.
That because they’re extending their jaw to a take a huge mouthful from the bowl – much like those hungry hippos.
It really is unfeasibly wide.
Public defender Luke never expecting the video to be viewed by quite so many times and the feedback has been almost overwhelmingly positive with one person simply stating “I can’t stop watching it”.
But there have been some words of advice for Luke and his cats.
One twitter user commented under the video: “If a cat has been feeding for itself outdoors before it finds a home, this happens.
“When they finally get regular food their instincts are to gorge. It causes extreme weight gain.
“I feed mine in different spots for that very reason. They learn that no one is coming for their food.”
Another added: “I rescued a dog who was abandoned & nearly starved to death. He acted like this with his food. Heartbreaking.
“Give him his own bowl in a separate place. No competition!”
And that was backed up by a third who added: “Yeah – all cats need their own food bowl anyway.
“If u have cats please give them each a food bowl & put water in multiple bowls and in different locations.
“More water options means they are more likely to drink and cats get dehydrated easily so don’t risk it.”
