Cats can be quite intrusive when it comes to getting involved in your meals. Unlike dogs, who will either whine for food or just knock everything over trying to get to your plate, cats know exactly what they're doing. Like hunters studying their prey, they will watch the food relentlessly. Endlessly. And when the time strikes — it will be theirs.
A Japanese couple which goes by Naomiuno on Instagram, has become extremely popular within the social media platform for their frequent posts of their two mischievous felines hard at work in front of the family meals. Here are a few examples.
The one on the left, with the black and white coat, is Oko, or Oko-chan, and the one on the right is Hachi, or Hat-chan.
Their favorite thing to do is watch over their humans' food.
And sometimes they do more than watch.
Sometimes, they really get involved.
And more often than not, they need to be held back, physically.
Who can blame them, really? This Instagram account is a food appreciation platform as much as it is a cat lovers' paradise.
Big meals aren't necessary to get their attention. The slightest bit of food will do. Even a tiny cookie hidden behind a mug.
Oko and Hachi have a wonderful partnership. Usually, one of them does the touching while the other one supervises.
OK, well, sometimes they both do the touching.
They don't look too happy at being made fun of!
What an adorable duo. Do you have food-loving cats like Oko and Hachi? Share your photos of them with us in the comments section and make sure to pass this gallery around to your cat-obsessed friends on Facebook!
