Pet owner Shiloh Waite only has three posts on TikTok, and each one is about her cat Nugget. The tabby cat became an internet sensation when Waite recorded it parroting her voice word for word. Somehow, Nugget’s high-pitched meows resembled the English language, leaving people on social media baffled.
“I literally don’t post on here, but Nugget was too cute not to,” Waite said in the caption.
In the video, Waite held Nugget belly-side-up in her arms like a little baby.
“Oh no,” Waite said.
Nugget mimicked the sound of her voice, letting out a meow that sounded as if the cat said verbatim, “Oh nooo.”
“Our table,” Waite said.
Again, Nugget let out a whimpering squeak that sounded just like the pet owner.
“It’s broken,” Waite said, laughing.
Then the feline let out another mimicry of the woman. Waite couldn’t stop giggling at her precocious kitty. The pet owner was, of course, referencing the “Oh no! Our table! It’s broken!” meme, a hilarious trend that originated with a skit from America’s Funniest Home Videos.
Nugget’s hidden talent scored 8.8 million views and 2.5 million likes on TikTok.
“That’s a parrot in a catsuit,” someone commented.
“Why is your cat literally formulating sentences?” another asked.
“The cat is a paid actor,” a user said.
