Owner’s Travel Tip – A 5-Day Cat Food Buffet – TikTok Talk

A cat owner’s travel hack has sparked a pet care controversy on TikTok.

The original video for their cat food buffet has climbed to over 3.6 million views since it was posted 5 days ago as TikTok users step in.

User @slappyzacky posted a video with her cat and pre-assembled food bowls sitting in a row.

The original video is captioned: “POV, your humans are about to leave for a few days and you see the five food bowls laid out for you.” “

Reviewers were quick to comment on the cat food buffet.

“What ?? someone should check the chat once a day,” @angieveep said.

“My cat would eat everything in 1 day,” @_erikkax added

Others asked how the water or the litter box was prepared for the trip.

Some users have enthusiastically supported the cat food buffet method.

“I legitimately left mine a serving tray full of food,” commented @PrncsInPnk

“LITERALLY GOOD !!!! I put different bowls all over the house! And I hide treats so they can find them, ”@ justin.wayne18 said.

The Daily Dot spoke to Dr Karen Cantor of the Westside Veterinary Center who said cats should not be left alone for longer than 24 hours.

“Someone needs to watch the cat every day. You never know if they might be doing something stupid or if something is going on, ”said Dr Cantor.

When it comes to food, Dr. Cantor says, “Ideally, you want enough food for the morning and evening. And have someone come in every day to distribute it.

The problem is not that a cat is hungry without a human being, but that an unattended cat could eat something by mistake or have a medical emergency.

Dr. Cantor recommends asking a neighbor or trusted friend to watch your cat regularly if you plan to be away for a long time.
