Cat Feeder Camera Gifs meme.

About

Cat Feeder Camera Cats, also known as Cat House Cameras or Cat Feeder Camera GIFs, refers to a series of cat images, GIFs and videos taken from the Chinese livestream app Hello Street Cat on which cameras are set up in stray "cat houses" where food is dispensed after user donations. The trend started with the Cat Eating Then Looking Up video in late 2023. Then, a fandom around a particular cat named Mr. Fresh, also known as the Side-Eye Cat, developed. In early 2024, internet users on Twitter / X compiled multiple stream clips from the app, likening the cats to being mass-produced in a factory. Mr. Fresh and the others then gained collective fan art, memes and redraws, evident in the Hedgehog Eating Cat Food meme.

Origin

On October 8th, 2023, TikToker[1][2] @catzoo1 posted two videos that showed a Chinese livestream with a camera set up in a cat feeder. The first video (which later became the "Cat Eating Then Looking Up" meme) gained roughly 16.6 million plays and 2.1 million likes in three months (shown below, left).

The second video of a different cat (later known as "Mr. Fresh") gained roughly 457,500 plays and 123,700 likes in three months (shown below, right).

Also on October 8th, 2023, TikToker[3] @annettesullivan also went viral for posting the Cat Eating Then Looking Up video, receiving roughly 2.7 million plays and 445,900 likes in three months.

The screen recording of the Cat Eating Then Looking Up was seemingly taken from a viral video on the Chinese video platform Weibo. The livestream with the cat was from a different Chinese app called Hello Street Cat[4] that livestreams so-called "cat houses" where user donations feed stray cats (example image shown below).

Spread

Going into late October 2023, the two TikTokers continued to upload clips from the Hello Street Cat livestream. For instance, on October 10th, 2023, TikToker[5] @annettesullivan posted a video that introduced Mr. Fresh, gaining roughly 1.9 million plays and 239,800 likes in three months (shown below, left).

On October 24th, 2023, TikToker[6] @annettesullivan posted a video of a hedgehog eating the food in front of a cat (later becoming the "Hedgehog Eating Cat Food" meme), earning roughly 559,300 plays and 88,400 likes in three months (shown below, right).
