It’s the cat video giving new meaning to stuffing one’s piggy little mouth.
A cat practically unhinging its jaw to dive face first into a bowl of food has now attracted more than 10 million views on Twitter.
If nothing else, Twitter user Luke in Philadelphia has shown in his June 13 post the world’s in desperate need for a distraction. He posted the ultimate kitty query.
“What in the world kind of pig cat eats like this?” wrote said pig cat’s owner.

It’s one big mouth around one very full bowl of food.
Boing boing — and Twitter users galore — went with the kid’s game, Hungry, Hungry Hippos.
Which lead to some questions — and confessions.

Luke in Philadelphia also found himself on the defensive.
“People are suggesting that I try ‘portion control’ and even implying that my cat is “overweight” when he is obviously very skinny and perfect,” he retorted.
