Cute cat uses paw to taste test unfamiliar food


This adorable Scottish Fold uses a lot of common sense in taste testing unfamiliar food on a spoon by (a) sniffing it (b) backing off and (c) taking a very small piece of the green stuff (pea purée?) on his claw or paw which he then delicately tastes before licking the back of his paw. It is almost human-like. Humans might behave in a similar manner when presented with totally unfamiliar food.


Apologies but the video does not work with Apple’s Safari browser. It asks that you download the video. Not good. But it works in Firefox and Chrome.



The video comes from reddit.com gifs only this is not a gif but an MP4 video.
