Cat Fed New Flavor of Food Lets Owner Know What She Thinks—’Immediately No’

A cat has made no bones about being less than impressed with a new flavor of pet food served to him—and the resulting video has left viewers in hysterics.

Americans love to pamper their pets, and many see them as surrogate children. Proof of this came in a 2021 survey of 2,000 pet owners conducted by OnePoll on behalf of the pet food brand I And Love And You, with 61 percent of respondents saying they considered their pet to be their child.

Not only that, 29 percent claimed they even go as far as throwing birthday parties for their four-legged companions. Ashley Warwick might not go as far as some but, writing in a post shared to TikTok, the children’s book author and illustrator acknowledged her cat Lucky is a little on the “spoiled” side.

This didn’t manifest itself in the form of an elaborate birthday party though, but rather in a 14-second video clip shared to the social media platform by the pet owner.

It captures Lucky’s reaction to a new flavor of cat food and it’s fair to say she’s not happy with it. In the video, which can be watched here, Lucky can be seen approaching the plate of wet food.

Lucky gives the food a sniff but evidently doesn’t like what she smells. Rather than even attempt to take a bite, she instead proceeds to scratch the floor several times.

“Are you all done?” Warwick can be heard to ask as Lucky turns back and sniffs at the food again. The answer is very clearly a “yes,” with the picky feline resuming her floor-scratching antics soon after. That floor scratching then doesn’t stop until the food is taken away.

“She tried a new flavor today and obviously didn’t like it,” Warwick wrote in the on-screen caption, adding “don’t worry she got something else…spoiled.”

At the time of writing the video has been watched over 800,000 times, with viewers commenting on the relatability of the scenario and the hilarity of Lucky’s behavior.

One viewer loved how it was an “immediate no” from Lucky while another commented: “Is she saying this belongs in the litter box?”

A third commented: “I take it so personal when my cat does this like I made the food myself ” while a fourth suggested this was Lucky’s way of saying: “I’d like to speak to the manager.”

Whatever the case, Lucky certainly didn’t go hungry, though Warwick might think twice before changing up her cat food again.
