A video uploaded by Japanese YouTuber Nuuuuuuuuko shows a heartwarming scene that calls into doubt the old adage that “cats are jerks.” Set to cheery music, two cats share a bowl of kibble, each refusing to hog the dish by pushing it in the other’s direction.

So sweet! So well-behaved! So… unlike any cat I have ever encountered… Something tells me there’s more to this story.

First, have a look at the video.

Adorable, right? Who knew cats, the selfish, jerky iconoclasts of the pet world, could be trained to engage in a peaceful give-and-take at meal times?

Well, before you start using this video to achieve peace in the Middle East, take a look at the original video uploaded by yuuki shimada.

Yup, that looks about right.

Cats. Gotta love ’em.
