Catsparella Exclusive! Pictures and Interview with Mittens, the Cheeseburger Eating Cat

You may recognize Mittens the cat from the video of her nomming a cheeseburger that has been making the rounds on the internet this week, appearing everywhere from ICanHazCheezburger to PeoplePETS. The video has already received over 55,000 views on YouTube!

"You can haz cheezburger!"

She was also featured in my post, Cats Eating Their Way Through the Alphabet: A-Z under "M" for this video of her sampling some macaroni and cheese.

"That's enough, Mittens!"

I reached out to Mitten's owner, YouTube user roxy72 to find out more about this sweet and super cute kitty.

How old is Mittens?

16! My family adopted her from the Humane Society in Vallejo, CA when she was a kitten. I was 9 years old and we grew up together. My family was in the military so she was my best friend no matter where we lived.

Besides cheeseburgers, what are her favorite things to eat?

She normally eats Purina UR wet and dry food from the vet and enjoys it (this was the first time she had tried a cheeseburger, it's not her normal diet). Her favorite daily treat is leftover milk from my cereal- she sits next to me in the morning while I eat breakfast, then I put the bowl down for her and she gets a bit of milk.

Does Mittens have any pet siblings?

Back at my Mom's house, we have a 17 year old cat who she grew up with and 3 dogs. Mitten's prefers living at my house however, where she is the only pet. She hisses at the other pets when we visit my Mom!

What is her favorite toy?

She loves Da Bird (the original one with the bird, and the Cat Catcher one with a mouse on it), and she also likes catnip toys. She usually licks the catnip toy until it gets all wet, then she goes crazy and kicks it.

How does Mittens feel about being internet-famous?

She was surprised and honored by this new found interest but was more interested in getting her dinner. She might do some other videos if some of your readers have suggestions on food to try! :)

So there you have it! Fame hasn't changed Mittens at all. Special thanks to roxy72 and Mittens for so kindly answering our questions and providing the adorable pictures!

Aw bless. My cat Widget ate half an iced mince pie - and I'd only put it down while I made a cup of coffee.
