A crafty cat has learned to open a snack box by pressing on the seal with its nose.

Kim Porpora might want to keep her pet feline away from the food when she’s not around, but Baxter is having none of it.

Despite having put all his treats in sealed plastic boxes at home in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania on July 2, the 10-year-old uses his nose to get under the clamp.

Pushing upwards, the seal is broken and slides his head in between the opening to try and grab the tasty treats inside.

Kim said: “He is a chubby cat but he really is a sweet little man.

“Baxter is forever hungry.

“He tries to get into his food as often as possible and succeeds only because I’m slow moving.”
