When it comes to tortitude, nobody does it better than Binga!
When the humans are in the kitchen, she puts on her happy face.
Her happy face also happens to be her demanding face… and she has the voice to match.
But don’t trust her cuteness! Behind it all is a vicious creature, ready to chomp on the nearest human appendage — and here’s proof in the video below. This is what my human wakes up to every morning. If she doesn’t get up fast enough to satisfy Binga, she gets punished.

I LOVE seeing Binga and her dear love biteys.
Nutmeg is just as bad. Green eyes and a brush against MK and she’s home free!
Love the pic of Binga’s butt!
And some people say that cats can’t communicate???
Pay attention! Keep petting! Feed me now! You keep putting that finger in front of my mouth, what am I supposed to do?
Gotta love that Tortie attitude!
Andrea and the Celestial Kitties says
I love Binga! Her adorable soulful face! I just want to give her a kiss on the top of that pretty head, even if I might lead to a nibble. Cashmere is a finger nibbler like that, I keep trying to train her to stop, but she’s determined to have a taste every now and then.
No offense meant to Summer, who I also love and think is an absolute beauty! And Boodie who is also floofiliciously gorgeous! You are three lovely ladies!
RANDOM Felines says
Oops, maybe your human needs to put on hand purrtection,MOL!!
Sweet Binga…we loved seeing her sitting up and begging!
Aw, Binga has gentle love bite tortitude. We loved her video. 🙂
Love that Binga tortitude!! Makes me miss Piper!!
Karen Candee says
We have a devil torie too – her name is Ginger and she loves to tease people into petting her and then she bites them.
“Oh, oh … pet me … NOPE. Oh, oh … yes, right … NOPE! … NOPE!” Food should at least earn us some pre-authorized petting time with no take-backs!
The kitties of purring pines says
Binga means business!!!
Seppo has been banned from watching this tortitude training video! Yes, gentle biteys now: off camera we can imagine the chomps! Tortitude indeed.
Marjorie, Harvey, Miranda, Silver and Dusty says
Spitty the Kitty says
Well, who can blame her?
Emma and Buster says
Binga is a biter like Buster. He is a playful biter too.
What a cute video! Love seeing Binga in action 🙂
That poor cat is starving. Poor Binga.
THe Island Cats says
Binga is kinda like me. If the mom doesn’t get the food in the dish fast enough, I nip her a couple of times. ~Ernie
Kitties Blue says
Those were love nips and looked very half-hearted. That cuteness is genuine, and after all she deserves to have TORTITUDE. Mom just had to squee at the third photo. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Mr. Chivers, Greyson, and Tabitha says
OMC! MOL, Torties are so unique. You must have been REALLY hungry Binga. Poor baby. Gotta keep the humoms in line. Love ya! Purrs
Binga is hungry! Why does it take humans so long to get up and feed us breakfast? It happens here too especially on weekends.
Melissa, Mudpie & Angel Truffles says
Don’t you love how they give “love bites” and then kiss you after MOL???
Summer Samba says
And sometimes vice versa too!
Cathy Keisha says
HAH! Way to go, Binga, only I’d bite down harder cos she’s teasing you. No one teases CK and lives to tell about it.
It reminds me what Abby use to do, she always used her teeth to give me her point of view. I got so used to being nipped — it took me a long time to not flinch with the other cats when I would pet them around their mouth. Old habit. But I sure do miss that now.
The Swiss Cats says
Binga ! Don’t bite the hand that feeds you (and gives you treats !) ! Purrs
I’m a tortie and I think Binga needs to work a bit harder on ‘giving the look’. I can get my lady to do my bidding with ‘the look’….
caren gittleman says
I think Binga is a total sweetheart!!!!! Cody does those “love bites” too, I love when he does that!
Ellen Pilch says
Binga is a sweetie. Those are just love bites. I love torties, my Penny is one and she has the tortitude too, but more with the other cats than us
Craig s. c. okajima says
Are you saying, Summer, that despite her good looks, Binga CAN be an “attack cat?”
Tee! Hee! Binga does the lick and bite so furry well. Yous can tell she has LOTS of practice!
Pumpkin the Farm cat is a real talker too. The only thing I can figure he is saying is, “FEED ME.” Because he is always in front of the food bowl.
It looks like Binga likes the occasional cat snack of human
Dragonheart, Merlin, and Devi says
Binga does seem to have tortitude! We are a little worried as our humans say the next Sphynx to join use with be a tortie!
Ingrid King says
If that’s not tortitude, I don’t know what is! Good job, Binga! 🙂
Christy Paws says
Excellent display of tortietude, Binga. Ocean is always giving mom love bites, too, but I don’t do that.
Lola and Lexy says
A human need a little nip now and then to get them moving.
Binga we Senior kitties don’t mess around when it is feeding time.
Looks like you gave the human a little love nip!!
Hugs Madi your bfff
Mickey's Musings says
Binga reminds us of our bridge kitty Tiger.
She was loving,but had a tendency to nip as well.
She was not mean,but mum had to watch her fingers.
Sometimes when mum put her face close to Tiger, she got a nip 😮
Like Binga, she was pretty cute too.
Purrs Georgia and Julie,
Treasure and JJ
Brian Frum says
I agree, that looks more like a nibble, but a cute nibble!
HaHnnah and Lucy says
The bites didn’t look ouchie so Binga must have a gentle bite.
Katie Isabella says
Bingo! Be nice!
Katie Isabella says
BINGA! Mom is even worse helping me when she has just gotten up, Binga. Sorries.
toby & leia says
Sometimes our best communication is done with the teeth. Hoomins can be very dense, after all.
Well those DO look like love bites rather than “vicious animal about to rip a hand off” bites!! We sometimes need to give a gentle toothie to our humans to get them to do our bidding!
