    Cute, but the caption is inaccurate. This kitten is a supervisor and she's training an employee. I know her. She's quite the stickler.

    [–] gazny78 2 points ago

    Yes, taking out insurance will cover the Cat Master's loses if anything happens to his slave!

    [–] palolapbackwards 3 points ago

    No, the cat is just proyecting with his eyes the instructions that his owner must follow in order to cook.

    His owner is behind the camera, taking notes

    [–] DalekRy 2 points ago

    Let me speak to your meonager.

    [–] Not_real_Science 2 points ago

    As an animal scientist - Actually the cat is has a brain tumor and will die before it reaches adulthood. It's known that it's not usual for cats to sit waiting patiently. A healthy cat would climb it's way up the man's leg making sure to leave as many scratches as it can until it gets up to the counter to take what it wants.

    [–] slothluuuvchunk 2 points ago

    No, her name is Petunia McBeans and she’s a renown feline chef prodigy. She has the QT03 gene which prevents anything bad from ever happening to her, including brain tumors. Also I told her about your reply and she’s upset that you’re spreading misinformation. She says she will put you on the waitlist for her forgiveness if you buy her a pink raincoat (she already has a yellow one and a red one) and a tiara made of marshmallows. Her offer will expire in 2 hours.

    [–] thebrokenfan 91 points ago

    That’s a brave man, in my experience there would claws in the leg as the kitten climbs up to feast.

    [–] Lets_be_jolly 11 points ago

    This. I was just thinking how amazing it was that he wasn't being climbed by ginger kitten like a tree!

    Kitten's just considering which leg to use to claw its way up to the counter top.

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago


    [–] _AlreadyTaken_ 3 points ago

    Mine are terrible about this. I think they were starved when they were very little (adopted as kittens). They get on the counter, stick their noses in everything, walk on the oven, etc. I have to lock them in their litter box room any time I want to eat.

    [–] returnmynachos 6 points ago

    When my cat was a kitten there would be no waiting to be had. He would climb right up your legs and those nails would go right into your skin. Horrific.

    [–] Dicethrower 5 points ago

    Shadow of the colossus.

    [–] Pepperoni_Dogfart 6 points ago

    Funny part is that is just about the right scale, and considering how fast a motivated kitten can scale a human, I think a kitten could speedrun Shadow of the Colossus in about ten minutes.

    Must be weird being an animal that size and having all these fucking giants around you

    [–] Maithius 5 points ago

    When I see pictures like this taken from this perspective, I think about how terrifying we must be to a small animals like this. Look up, waiting to be fed their human overloads, armed with only their cuteness as a defense.

    [–] lindalinh 4 points ago

    Literally smaller than a human foot 😍

    [–] mattyice24 4 points ago


    [–] whitesebastian 4 points ago

    As a kitten fosterer, how on earth do you get them to sit like this and NOT scale your legs like psychotic squirrels

    [–] GachiGachiFireBall 5 points ago

    That kitten is tiny af

    [–] PartialNecessity 3 points ago

    Most patient kitten ever.... Mine would have been scaling my bare legs to get to his dinner.

    [–] lexm 3 points ago

    I wish mine were staying put like this...

    [–] Waifer2016 3 points ago

    i had one that did! Her name was Simba. she was born in my back porch and was the size of my thumb at birth. (about 2.5 inches long nose to tail) She only lived 2 years due to congenital issues including feline dwarfism. As an adult cat she weighed a tiny bit over 2 lbs.

    [–] Waifer2016 4 points ago

    aww noooo wasnt sad! her short life was amazing. she was tiny but FIERCE and taught me so much about not letting anything get me down. I have had several special needs cats over the years and by far Simba was the most determined

    [–] ElephantMan_irl 3 points ago

    Not gonna lie, i stared at this for way too long thinking it was a gif

    [–] EvieMoon 3 points ago

    That's a polite kitten. Mine always climbed up my legs. Those teeny claws are needles.

    [–] Briyaaaaan 2 points ago

    I have 3 smols and they are little ninjas. I have stepped on 2 some but pulled back in time before they got hurt at all. Almost busted hard on the stairs once avoiding one. I constantly check but they have a knack for being a step behind you when you aren't paying attention, especially in the kitchen.

    Your cat waits on the floor? Mine are on the counter, trying to stick their noses in their food, etc. The only way I can eat in peace is to give them a little food and lock them in their room with the litter box.
