It's lunch o’ clock! As soon as you open the cupboard, you can hear your furball sprinting like Bolt for the race of a lifetime. ‘Cause no doggo would dare to miss a second of the holy ritual—the pouring sound of dry delicious bits, their heavenly aroma, and the first crunchy bite that immediately becomes the last.

But devouring the food you love may be a dangerous endeavor for some hungry animals. You see, when your eyes are bigger than your belly and your belly is bigger than your bowl, it may lead to a trapping incident.

Bored Panda has compiled a list full of the cutest animals who seriously overestimated themselves, ditched their table manners, and got miserably stuck in the progress of eating.

When it comes to feeding your pet, we all want what’s best for our animals, from tasty foods to safe and useful pet feeders. However, recently, new buzz around automatic pet feeders has emerged.

Many owners see them as an alternative to feeding your furry companion while being away, or simply making sure you never forget to put some snacks out when you’re out of time.

But experts warn that automatic food dispensers are in no way an alternative to human interaction. In fact, Russell Hartstein, a certified pet behaviorist and the founder of Fun Paw Care in Los Angeles, told NY Times that “A feeder should never be used as a way to not hire a pet sitter, walker, or boarding facility.”

Even though automatic pet feeders are meant to dispense a specific amount of food at a programmed time, they cannot give the full care and attention your pet needs. Plus, they are not always reliable, and when there’s technology, bugs do happen.

Moreover, an automatic pet feeder is likely to overfeed your pet even if you've programmed it not to. It can be anywhere from a teaspoon to a nibble, but if your pet is on a restricted diet, that little bit can be enough to pile on weight.
