Deli Clerk Humors A Stray Cat Who Tries To ‘Order’ Food

What do you do when a stray tabby cat walks into your deli looking for some scraps? You treat her like a true customer, of course!

At least, that’s what one man did when a gray tabby cat walked into his store from the streets.

While no one is exactly sure where the cat came from, one thing is sure: She wanted some food.

In a heartwarming video, you can see the cat standing at the deli counter while the man looks down at her. She meows a few times as if to ask for some meat.

Without hesitation, the deli clerk humors her request and starts showing the cat the various options.

The cat looks over each item that the clerk shows her, but in the end, she settled for a piece off a large slab of meat. When he held it out for the cat to examine, she lifted her paw just a tad, as if to indicate that she’d chosen that one.

Of course, the kind clerk wasn’t going to tease the cat by just showing her some meat options so he cut off a sample-sized piece and handed it to her.

The cat gently takes the piece and finally goes down to all four paws to enjoy her winnings.

In many places with a lot of stray cats, they’re not always welcomed so warmly into businesses. It’s nice to see such a kind-hearted clerk helping out an animal in need. Based on the smile on his face, I think it’s safe to say the cat brought him a lot of joy as well.
