By now, we know cats definitely have an attitude. It’s written all over their saunters, fixed gazes, and smooth tail flicks. As kittens, they’re completely disarming and leave you gushing. But you shouldn’t let those button noses, soft paws, and baby faces fool you. They’re highly intelligent creatures. Master manipulators hiding behind the cutest features.
Cats may be charming and sweet but they can also be incredibly sassy and evil.
That’s why in cartoons and movies, cats are often depicted as the bad guys – the cunning looking ones that just can’t help but provoke dogs, humans, and other animals any chance they get. Of course, letting a stereotype dictate how you should perceive felines in real life isn’t the way to go about it. Basically what we’re saying is the stereotype (however exaggerated) exists for a reason.
Rigley the cat is a real boss.
When he wants something, he demands to have it immediately. In this video (which, by the way, earned over a million views – way to go, Rigley!), all the cat wanted was to have some treats.
He has his own way of asking, as well as the ability to respond when spoken to.
So when his mom gives him a talking to before allowing him to have some, the sassy cat doesn’t hesitate to talk back.
Rigley looks so innocent, doesn’t he?
Check out that innocent look on his tiny, adorable face. He can even make his voice sound irresistible. Not that he needs to. We’re pretty sure this smart cat has his mom wrapped around his tiny paws.
Even if he meows loudly in response to his mom’s gentle tone.
Watch how he gazes into the camera without batting an eye and how quickly he speaks his mind after his mom talks.
He’s even got the stance to match.
Confident and ready to get his way, Rigley doesn’t realize his antics and unwavering certainty are being filmed.
But would he honestly even care?
All he wants is to have his way and remain on the winning end of the conversation.
You’ll love the viewers’ comments on the video. Rigley obviously knows how to win people over with his shenanigans. His serious, defiant side had everyone coming up with various conclusions, like how the cat seemed to be swearing at some point or how he actually exercised good manners by waiting for his mom to finish speaking before meowing back.
A look of confusion crosses his face from time to time throughout the exchange but as expected, that doesn’t get him to pipe down and behave.
The only way to get Rigley to snap out of his temper tantrum is to give in to his demands, something his mom didn’t instantly resort to.
So he kept up the act and turned up the attitude. He even looks as if he’s raising an eyebrow. Or maybe we’re just imagining things because we’ve somehow been programmed to think cats are mean machines that don’t know how to back down. Unfazed, Rigley’s mom maintained a gentle but firm tone throughout the conversation.
And like the spoiled little baby that he is, he insisted on making his point.
Watch the video and see this cat keep up his end of the conversation!
