Domestic cat refuses to give up his KFC and growls when attempts are made to take it off him
This is the typical response when a domestic cat strongly feels that they must protect their food from their owner. It is not that uncommon. It has happened to me and my cat. Scenario: your cat is enjoying his food and you want to move the food perhaps or for some reason take it off him and he'll start growling. He may carry the food away to a secure place. It's just typical wild cat behaviour which is firmly embedded in the brain of domestic cats.

The players in the video on TikTok are Karter, the cat, Faith Lim, the woman and TikTok account holder and her boyfriend Max Chapman. The place is Melbourne, Australia. We don't know the background of the story but I suspect that they gave their cat the KFC and then videoed Karter while they tried to take it off him perhaps knowing that he would start growling. It is always amusing to see this kind of feline behaviour. It's a great reminder that ultimately, we live with a domestic cat whose wild traits are just below the surface.
KFC is perfectly okay for a cat in small amounts may be in big amounts! But it should not be part of their regular diet because it contains too much salt probably and it is not fully balanced. Commercially prepared cat food is complete and balanced. You should always look for the "complete and balanced" description on the label. Sorry for that little lecture at the end.
I hope that you enjoy the video. Another problem is the bones in KFC. Although there is quite a strong argument which states that cats should be allowed to chew on bones because this is what happens in the wild and it is good for their teeth and gums.
Please note that this the video is 'embedded' into this website with code and if the video is removed from TikTok it will obviously disappear on this page. If that has happened, I apologise.
