There is no imminent danger for the little fur ball, nor is she being exposed to any truly frightening sights. No, the cat just freaks out every time she receives food.

She does so in such a hilarious way that millions of TikTok users have liked the video.

In the collage shared by Jade Aufderbeck, viewers see multiple scenes in which Zooey the cat leaps into the air in shock when her automatic food dispenser dishes out a new serving.

Sometimes little Zooey is awakened suddenly from a nap on the bed. Sometimes she springs with a start from her pet sofa directly toward the food bowl. Sometimes she waits in front of the food dispenser until it gives her something to eat.

Funnily enough, the cat food always arrives rather suddenly and loudly in the bowl. That's why the orange and white animal always goes to pieces.

Whether waiting for her food or taking a nap, there is no stopping Zooey once she hears the sound of the food dispenser.
