A Russian Blue cat from, er, Russia signals their owner to refill an empty food dish with a heavy metal riff rather than a chorus of meows.

Russian Cat Demands Food Without Meowing

Cat got your tongue? At least one clever cat has come up with a novel way of alerting an owner who has, presumably, tuned out their incessant meowing over an empty food dish.

Maybe the owner plays loud music and a cat's meow can't compete. Well, if you can't beat 'em, beat 'em longer, louder and prouder, amiright? Truly, T.Rex's “Bang a Gong” has got nuthin' on a famished kitty clangin' a metal bowl on a hardwood floor.

Be sure to watch this short 44-second video of the Russian cat demanding food be put in (Putin?) its dish right meow... without uttering a single meow. As for the owner, either they don't mind the cat-cacophony or they haven't yet thought of replacing the metal bowl with a less gong-like dish. (via EnglishRussia
