Chibikuro is a black cat from Japan. He was recently caught trying to eat a stolen piece of fried fish.

When his owner demanded to know, "Who has dared to steal this fish?" Chibikuro's reaction was extremely relatable.


Instead of letting go of the piece of fish in his mouth, he wrapped his arm around it even more tightly and looked just a little bit sorry.

"When I caught him with the fish, Chibikuro refused to release it no matter what," Chibikuro's owner, Kuni-chan, told BuzzFeed News.


Kuni-chan said he thought it was funny so he showed his daughter and wife, who took a video.

He then shared it in a private Japanese Facebook group called "Black Cat Club," where it quickly went viral.

"In the end, Chibikuro looked uncomfortable, so I gave up and let it go," he said.


He added that he later retrieved the piece of fried fish from Chibikuro as it is not healthy for cats.

Kuni-chan said Chibikuro is a year old, and loves mischief and food.


Chibikuro lives with Kuro, a cat who's four years older.


"We usually have to lock Chibikuro out of the dining room when we are eating," Kuni-chan said. "But Kuro rarely steals human food. It's like it knows what's forbidden."

"It's interesting how cats can have such different personalities," he said. "But both cats are loved in our family."
