Who can resist a cat begging for treats, especially when they’re looking up at you with their sad eyes sparkling plaintively. These videos show just how effectively the “correct begging pose” works on us. It makes me think there definitely is a Cat Mastermind at work here.

Evidently, they train their cats to beg in Russia (lol)
Getting right in front of the refrigerator seems to help, after a pretend-yawn (“I’m really not that interested…”)
