These are merely the highlights of a two day feeding binge by Milo. He stole food much more often than was shown here.
We have two cats, Milo (tabby) and Max (black). They are one year old brothers from the same litter. Milo is a big fan of the dry food, Max not so much. Despite the fact that their automatic feeder drops food 3 times daily (and we give them wet food several times per week as a special treat), Milo smashes into the feeder with his front paws 20-30 times each day in order to knock out some extra snacks. Max has never smashed the feeder.
The slapboxing clip was a funny discovery for us, because we didn't know that they ever do that. I have a different, longer slapboxing clip that I'll upload soon.
See my other YouTube videos. There's an older one (http://youtu.be/Okhk6ROgsNg) from before he wedged the feeder into the corner of the room. He used to ride the whole feeder across the floor and smash it into the wall.
We cut down each of the clips in this montage significantly; after each hit Milo takes the time to reach up into the feeder a bit and tries to grab even more out. See this clip: http://youtu.be/8TXZMYIrMZo
Milo will also attempt to open the bathroom door by jumping up and grabbing the handle, and has opened cabinets in order to explore them. He's a problem solver.
We have switched the boys to a regular bowl to prevent Milo from packing on too many pounds. Our boys are well fed, pampered, and very loved.
