Now watch how this cat reacts when a possum snatches its meal that had just been provided by its owner. Instead of reacting with his claws, the poor cat simply stands there and begs for assistance.
The kitten can only watch helplessly as the wild animal consumes its meal, almost as if to protest to its master, “Why are you allowing this to happen?”
Without a doubt, the cat’s innate instincts for defending its food appear to have been gone. It appears like it pleaded with its owner to take action at one point.
Here’s a hilarious and adorable series of images uploaded by the animal’s owner on his Imgur account.
Many users of various social media platforms have expressed their opinions, jokes, and even empathy for the adorable kitty through their comments.
One of the commenters who criticized the owner’s behavior said, “Only an idiot would give his pet’s food outside his home.”
“Don’t you know how dangerous possums are?” said another, emphasizing how hazardous and irresponsible it was to let his cat get near to a wild animal that may contaminate or hurt him. “What a lucky kitty, what an irresponsible owner.”
Another user bemoaned the fact that no one intervened and merely mocked the poor kitty, who was clearly hungry, for the sole purpose of recording and sharing it on social media:
“Man, put down that phone, save your cat, and assist her.”
Several people expressed their sympathy and concern for the poor pussycat’s plight. One of them made the following observation:
“Poor kitten, this is exactly how I feel when I see my little brother devour my dessert.”
