Hilarious Raccoon Spotted Stealing Cat Food Blatantly Right Before The Cats’ Eyes

We often think of cats as bossy and even aggressive creatures who have a passion for ruling everything around them, but actually most of the time they are just… kitties, literally. Facing a real gangster, they turn out to be really mellow somehow.

These three bicolor cats had such an unforgettable day when a wild raccoon appeared from the middle of nowhere and rapidly joined them for lunch. The cats were just busying satisfying their thirst when the raccoon showed up, walked around like she owned the place, and then headed straight to the cats’ water bowl.

One of the felines tried to hiss at the uninvited guest at first, but it was all in vain. Obviously, that daring critter was not going to back down just because there was a kitten meowing around. Right before the cats’ very eyes, she started to wet the cat food and enjoy herself there.

A few seconds later, the funny raccoon suddenly noticed the existence of a human being nearby (aka the cameraman) and started to feel threatened. So, she quickly finished the meal and ran away in the blink of an eye.

But no, that’s not how the story ended. The mischievous raccoon, after running a few steps, simply began to doubt her action. “Wait a sec, why did I run anyway? That thing tastes great!”

So she came back again, grabbed a pawful of cat food…

… and made a fabulous escape!

Let’s take a peek at the hilarious scene:

Though it may seem strange, wetting food before eating is quite an interesting habit of the raccoon in general. People often think that they want to wash their food for hygiene reasons, but actually they just use water to understand what they are about to eat just like we humans use the light. Instead of looking at the object and use our eyes to evaluate it as we do, raccoons use their paws to gather more sensory information and water plays a huge role in helping them enhance their sense of touch.
