Bodega cats are something of an urban phenomenon; half-feral, half-domesticated felines whose natural habitats are independently-operated convenience stores and delis.

While having a cat live in these stores is technically a health violation, the job of the bodega cat is to rid its turf of mice and other vermin -- which are even bigger health violations, so inspectors tend to ignore the pets.

YouTuber InternetsCelebrities cut together a skillful send-up of a National Geographic-style nature documentary, following a cat as he prowls the aisles of one of NYC's finest bodegas.
