Cat Walks Into Tesco Helps Himself To Some Food Then Has A Nap

Get ready to meet your idol, as I introduce to you, this chubby cat who strolled into a supermarket, stole some dinner and then had a little nap.

The adorable cat was spotted heading into a Tesco Express store in Rugby, Warwickshire, earlier this week, seemingly on the lookout for food and feeling too lazy to go hunting for live prey.

Once inside the shop, he headed straight to the pet food aisle, had a little peruse of what was on offer, before knocking over a box of Go-Cat treats, which is about as good an advert for Go-Cat as you'll ever see.

Lacking the opposable thumbs required to open the food, the cat then decided to curl up and have a nap instead. No fucks given.

Melanie Morris-Jones, 39, who saw the cat said she had to a double take when she turned into the aisle and saw him chilling out on the floor.

She said: "I had just popped in to the Tesco to get a drink and some food before work.

"I came across the cat just lying there next to the box of cat food it had knocked off.

"It had clearly tried to go for the food, but I don't know it must have just given up."

After coming across the four-legged would-be-thief, Melanie did the right thing and told a member of staff, only to find that they weren't too concerned.

"I asked the cashier if she knew there was a cat over in the pet aisle," she added.

"She said yes she knew it was there and that it was a regular.

"I'm not sure who owned it - but it was completely chilled out. The cat looked like it didn't even care."

As it's not the sort of thing you see every day (unless you happen to work in that branch of Tesco, apparently) Melanie took some snaps and shared them online, where they quickly went viral.

Melanie said: "The fact that it was lying there was really funny. I had to take a picture and post it on Facebook.


"To be honest I didn't expect it to get so much attention.

"It was a bit ironic that the cat was down that aisle as it looked quite plump and well-looked after."
