Love comes in many shapes and sizes and people will do the craziest shit because of it. Cats are no different. Speaking of which, meet Beano, the cat who just LOVES dinner! Like Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy or Nicki Minaj and defending sex offenders, Beano and dinner are inextricably linked. The kitty made waves on TikTok for his extreme reaction to the sound of his automatic feeder. It’s a Pavlov’s dog situation except with a cat who apparently knows how to fly.
Beano’s human Alana C shared a compilation video of his dramatic response to the sound of dinnertime and it’s already racked up over 5 million views. via Newsweek:
TikTok user couvieandkitty—who also goes by the name Alana C on the video-sharing app—posted the video on Wednesday. It now has over 5.2 million views and 1 million likes.
Shared with the caption “Beano: ‘Restraint? Never heard of it,'” the video mixes multiple clips of Beano the cat reacting to the sound of his automatic feeding bowl opening. The black cat lives in Ottawa with his owners and has thrilled TikTok with his hilarious antics.
“Why do cats act like they’re never fed,” wrote one commenter. “My two literally be lying beside their bowls screaming if I am 1 minute late with breakfast.”
“Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a fluff!” said another user.
Other users shared how their cats are also big fans of their automatic bowls. One commenter wrote: “My favorite time of day is when the automatic feeder goes off and I see my cat tokyo drifting through the apartment just like this.” Another shared: “Mine is the same!”
Here’s Beano in action:
I sincerely doubt Beano is being starved, but you’d never be able to tell with that reaction. Much like me at a Pizza Hut buffet, there’s nothing that will get in between him and his meal! And UNLIKE me at a Pizza Hut buffet, Beano is incredibly elegant and graceful in his movements. I hope that the automatic feeder never breaks or Alana might face the wrath of the very acrobatic Beano!
