My cat the other night I heard him doing this weird meow while coming up the stairs and I go check him out and he's sitting by our bedroom doors. I was like you better have not found a mouse and brought it up here. See something in front of him and turn on the lights.... it was an onion.

u/Inadersbedamned May 27 '22

Reminds me of my grandma's cat....

Cleo and the green bean... She found a frozen green bean and began to play with it, few minutes later, she grabbed a dish drying mat and tucked the green bean into bed(the kitchen floor)

Such an odd kitty.

Nope, just brought it up. He brings random things upstairs at night while we sleep to play with. Sometimes makes a racket cause he smacks it down the stairs and then brings it back up.

u/draginbz May 27 '22 edited May 27 '22

Some cats and most animals are skittish, meaning they run away and hide no matter what the external or internal irritation is.

This cat is either not bothered enough or is very trusting of its owners and therefore feels safe despite the irritation.

Its very unlikely that this cat has been subjected to cut onions more than a couple times and the owners will likely not expose the cat again. We have the video and it is funny. We can replay the video without subjecting the cat to cut onions over and over again.

23

u/galal552002 May 27 '22

Yeah,or maybe it's as stupid as my cat,like my cat sometimes yell at me wanting food,leads me to where her food is,her plate is filled with food and still meows at me like the plate doesn't exist or as if it was empty and the plate is literally right in front of her,I sometimes need to faceplant her on the food for her to see it,I am not sure what's wrong with my cat,and know,she's not blind as she sees us just fine and sometimes she just sits there and tracks us with her eyes(she looks really cute when she does that,she looks curious when she does that)at least she can track down where her water bucket just fine

25

u/Woods26 May 27 '22

when my cat does this, I interpret this as being picky about stale food... I wonder if I could re-toast them in the oven like Cheetos that were open too long, because it feels kinda wasteful to regularly change it out.

u/wind_up_birb May 27 '22

uhh wait, you are cooking cheetos in the oven?

8

u/Woods26 May 27 '22 edited May 27 '22

yeah, especially in a humid place if you accidentally leave the bag open too long they can lose that crunch... a few minutes on a cookie sheet in the oven can fix them.

edit: I'm still talking about the Cheetos

u/sleepingqt May 27 '22

I just throw a little meow mix through an old coffee grinder and sprinkle it on. With their usual wet food not being in stock a lot lately it's been really helpful getting them to finish the stuff they don't like.

u/LittleGreenNotebook May 27 '22

This is the correct answer. It’s cause people use crappy dull knives that it squeezes the onion before actually cutting through causing the onion juice to spray out. A sharp nice slides right through and doesn’t have this problem.

Not only is the technic terrible, that blade looks super dull based on the pressure and nothing is more dangerous than a dull blade when cutting.

202

u/LLittle1994 May 27 '22

The thing is too, the membranes in the onions are what cause that stingy feeling. If you have a dull knife, you’re just smashing the membranes and releasing more of that compound from the onion. If you use sharp knife, you cut clean through the membranes, making it less likely to release more of that compound into the air.

57

u/Doctor_of_Recreation May 27 '22

I’ve read it helps for the onion to be cold, too, but the knife sharpness it really the key. I have no idea if the temp actually helps at all.

I mean I don't really care that much about the cutting, I've done the same or worse myself in my life.

But one thing is you are way more likely to cut yourself if the knife is not sharp so the video does give me a pit in my stomach watching, just because sharpening the knife doesn't take that much effort and it makes everything so much safer.

$200 knife and the knife skills of a toddler.

Globals are overpriced and shit tbh

u/Pons__Aelius May 27 '22

Agree. They have the worst grip feel and handle of any pricey knife I have tried.

u/Bastardm4n May 27 '22

It’s 100% the grip. I use knives for work and I need a grip that will still feel good after 8 hours of chopping.

I have some mercer’s which have a nice tight fitting handle, quite bulky but it’s good cause of the size of my hands

I'm glad to know someone else out there recognizes this. I worked for a guy who ground his into near nothing and he still claimed it was amazing.

Any time I moved to a new restaurant there we’re always globals just left by other chefs, swear I could have a full set if I just took them from each place

Why is the cat on the counter THAT close to food being prepared? Seems unsanitary to me.

The cat probably doesn't have his food handler's license, so he's probably not aware of the rules. You can tell because he doesn't have his hair net on.

Most cat owners have everything covered in cat more or less anyway.

It's the paws that have poop/pee on it that scares me.

We have three cats, and NONE of them are allowed on the worktops. You're right. Those cats may well have fecal matter on their paws, might have worms dropping out of their arse, might drop dander all over the surfaces. No way I would let them in the worktops when I'm NOT preparing food, let alone when I'm cutting food. Yikes.

Edit: spelling

lol is this the first reasonable cat owner I’ve seen in this thread? I don’t understand how people are even getting defensive about this. Cat dog bird fish idgaf what animal I have. I am not letting them near my food prep/cooking area. sure let them get on the counter anywhere else, idc what u do with ur life. But ur gonna get defensive that people think it’s gross that a cat is walking two inches from the food being prepped? bruh

u/Reyalla508 May 27 '22

I agree with this. My cats are entirely not allowed on surfaces where I may prepare or consume food. I love them, but due to the reasons you just stated it’s a hard no for me. They stand in their toilet daily. And to the other person who commented “YoU dOnT wIpE dOwN YoUr CoUnTeRs??” um yes I wipe them down every time I make food but that’s not a guarantee I don’t have an issue. I should also be able to just whip out a sandwich too though…

I'm more concerned about the obviously dull knife and poor handling.

Someone is going to hurt themselves.

I mean, I keep my cat off the counters for that reason. But I love this video

u/Arkiels May 27 '22

Unless you monitor your cats 24/7 they’re on the counter when you ain’t looking.

u/gggggrrrrrrrrr May 27 '22

Nah, my cat's terrified of the kitchen. As a baby, he always thought it was scary because he couldn't see on the counters and felt like a predator could pounce down on him. Any time he had to go in the kitchen, he'd sprint through it and try to hide under the step stool.

Because he's not very bright, he spent a good year unaware he'd actually gotten big enough to hop on the counter at all. Then the first time he ever got brave enough to jump on the counter, I immediately squirted him with water from the sink. The second time he tried to get on the counter, he jumped up and landed on a kitchen towel, which slipped off and dumped him on the ground. This has permanently made him think the kitchen is a creepy, dangerous place, filled with mysterious ledges, sliding surfaces, and random watersprouts.

So...uh...I guess if you get them young and traumatize them a bit, you can keep them off counters?

While the video is cute, I can't get past letting a cat on the counter. They step in their toilet then jump on the counter.
