It doesn’t take rocket science to know that pets love to steal food. For the most part, watching animals steal food is quite entertaining — as long as it’s not your food that’s being stolen.
So, it’s no surprise Twitter is blowing up over a video of a cat expertly stealing a Wendy’s Chicken Nugget.
Twitter user @lindseycabales, posted a video of her cat, Zach, grabbing a Wendy’s chicken nugget without permission. The video, posted on July 22, has since made this famished feline famous. The original tweet now has more than 30K retweets and north of 40K likes. Which seems to be a lot for a five second cat video.
But, apparently, Zach isn’t the only cat that likes nuggets. Twitter users began uploading videos of their cats stealing nuggets, fries, and other human food items.

Despite the cat’s human-like grabbing technique, Lindsey claims she did not allow her pet to ingest the nugget, as she admitted being in an inebriated state, and wasn’t in the mood to share.
I did I was drunk and wanted a chicken nugget lol

Although, there’s a subsequent tweet that contradicts Lindsey’s account of the evening. At 6:41 a.m., on July 26, Lindsey tweeted to Wendy’s claiming that Zach “loved” their chicken nuggets.
@Wendys my cat loved your nuggets

So, considering her tweet, it remains unclear if the cat actually ate it. Either way, there’s no denying the level of cuteness in this now viral video.
However, the video did spark conversation about whether or not feeding a chicken nugget to a cat should be considered animal abuse. Judging by the initial video, it’s safe to assume Lindsey is looking out for the best interest of Zach. Although, as long as chicken doesn’t have bones that a cat can choke on, it’s safe for feline consumption.
Thanks for the laughs, Zach!
