Kitten attempts to steal snacks but falls asleep at "crime scene"

Each day is a new lesson for kittens, and this one has some work to do on his snack-stealing skills after being caught napping on the job. A video shared by @funny_finnigan captures the moment a Scottish Fold kitten falls asleep next to his intended treats. The clip has amassed over 821,000 views since being posted on March 3. The on-screen text reads, "When the lil guy gets too sleepy trying to steal treats from his basket." Cats' behavior like this is not uncommon, as seen in a recent Newsweek article about a rescue cat going to great lengths for food. It's essential for owners to monitor their pets' diet to prevent obesity, as around 60 percent of cats in the U.

S. are considered overweight or obese. Professor Kelly Swanson from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign explains how cats overeat when given extra food, leading to weight gain and decreased digestive efficiency. The video has garnered over 275 comments and 188,200 likes, with users joking about the kitten's nap during his "crime scene" and "rookie mistake" in not getting enough rest before his heist. Newsweek has reached out to @funny_finnigan for further comment. Have adorable pet videos to share? Email them to [email protected] for a chance to be featured in our Pet of the Week segment.
