This is the funny moment a tough Russian man tries to review a can of stewed meat but is continually interrupted by the neighbour’s fat cat.
The video, viewed over 250,000 times on social media, features an unnamed man from the western Russian capital Moscow and his neighbour’s overweight moggy.
In the funny clip, the food reviewer shows the canned product, made in Belarus, to the camera and is interrupted by the chubby cat before he even opens it.
The moggy repeatedly bothers the man as he tries to read the ingredients on the back of the can.
The tough Russian then positions the can on a tree stump before opening it with a knife.
After emptying the contents into a bowl, the eager feline keeps jumping onto the tree stump to get at it.
The filming man says: “Leave me alone! Go away!”
At one point, the cat manages to feast on a lump of dropped meat and the man says: “Well, if the cat can eat it, I guess I can too.”
However, he does not appear to like the Belarusian product very much and he says: “Going by my Moscow standards, I’d give this zero points.”
According to the reviewer, the bothersome fat cat belongs to his neighbour.
Another Russian cat made the headlines recently when it spent eight days in the post without food or water before the recipient found it in the parcel alive but severely dehydrated.
It is not known where the Moscow man’s video was filmed although he is said to live in the city of Tolyatti in the south-western Russian region of Samara Oblast.
