Here’s a cute video featuring Charlie the cat who got himself a cat-food-filled cat pinata in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. Not only is it adorable, it’s messy to boot! Of course, if the pinata was Charlie’s only source of food for the day, the entire scenario changes from cute to animal cruelty.

That’s right Charlie, you need to earn your food! I don’t care if you’re starving!! If you ever want to eat you better hit that thing harder! Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone!
