Hearts Melt as Kitten Wonders What Pet Bunny Is Eating, Decides to Join Her

A tabby cat has melted hearts all over the internet after his owner shared a clip of him eating greens with his bunny sister, which has quickly gone viral on social media.

In the clip, shared on TikTok on Friday under the username Anjalyricc05, the feline can be seen lying down on the rug next to his sister, a white bunny, as they eat greens together, something that according to their owner they do every night.

The heartwarming video comes with a caption that says: “I feel like my kitty wondered why the fluffy weird shaped white kitty liked her greens so much so he tried them… And now he eats greens with her every night and lays with her.” Followed by: “I think my cat thinks that he’s a bunny too sometimes [I don’t know] it’s so sweet.”

Cats are obligate carnivores, so meat or fish should be the main food in their bowl every day, even better if it’s commercial cat food, which is complete with all the nutrients they need for a healthy life. However, lettuce is not on cats’ toxic list, so according to pet nutrition experts at Purina, you can once in a while feed your cat lettuce as a snack, as long as you don’t overdo it.

Although cats don’t need vegetables for a balanced diet, feeding them a little lettuce once in a while can be a good intake of fiber, although whether your cat will eat it or not is up to them.

“If you want to top up your pet’s fiber intake, consider adding one or two lettuce leaves to their main meal. However, most cats will turn their nose up at the offer of lettuce and in addition, standard cat food should already include all the fiber your feline friend needs, without the need for any extra ingredients,” its website explains.

The video quickly went viral on social media, getting viewers from across TikTok. It has so far received over 4.7 million views and 1.3 million likes on the platform.

One user, Mo Rose, commented: “Cats and bunnies actually get along very well bcuz when the cat grooms the bunny they both think they’re the dominant one.” And araceliy said: “My cat and rabbit just beat each other up but this is cute.”

Ava Rickett wrote: “Kittys and rabbits get often along well because licking is dominance for cats and affection for buns.”
