Japanese Cats Sucking Their Own Paws Touches the every Internet User’s Heart

The world is full of animal fun and joyful reactions. If cats are cute, and babies are cute, cats acting like babies must be just about the cutest thing ever, right? correctness, it is of course …..
Some doting pet owners refer to their animal companions as their “babies,” and there’re a lot of similarities between a pet and a human infant.

Both require lots of care and attention but reward their caretakers with adorable cuteness and affection. There is a heart inside a heart of a cat.

A cat owned by Japanese Twitter user @_okayu, Kabu, takes the “kitten=baby” thing one step further, as he’s got a penchant for sucking on his paw like a human tyke would suck his thumb.

Kabu’s thoroughly relaxed and deeply satisfied expression in the video makes him all the more endearing, and other Twitter users were quick to shower the video with praise for
“Precious.” “I mean, cat paws are just so soft and squishy. I’d want to suck on one too.” “He’s so cute that I screamed lout loud.” “Iyasareru.”

While many of the people who watched the video had never seen a cat do this before, others had, and in their own homes. The Video has been watched for more than 2.3 million Times.

“It’s like they’re imitating humans to try to understand their feelings,” mused one commenter, and he’s kind of right, in that the reason cats suck their paws turns out to be the same reason human babies suck their thumbs.

Recreation of the feeling of nursing, which in all mammals is an instinctively comforting sensation. Since Kabu is just a three month-old kitten, it makes sense that he’s still enjoy sucking his paw. This is really amazing !


All cats do not suck their paws, and while some may continue the practice for years, others will grow out of it, much like human kids do with thumb-sucking.

We can’t help but wonder, though, if this means cats would also enjoy drinking through McDonald’s Japan’s breast feeding-simulating straws. Lets  animalise our  Human lifestyle with these awesome cats.
