While cats have a keen sense of understanding about what is good and what isn't, Milo is probably one of the few cats who patiently does quality tests.
It is said that while dogs teach you about love and loyalty, cats teach you about control and consent. Cats are the epitome of sophistication when it comes to being house pets and are quite disciplined. They are also more affectionate and smart than they lead us to believe. In a video posted by Milo—who goes by @mr.milothechonk on Instagram—he appears to showcase his unusual skill of quality testing blankets to select the one that he likes.
The video begins with Milo sitting on the ground below the bed, looking up into the camera, while the overlay text says, "Today, Milo is going to do a quality control test for blankets." The text then goes on to tell us how Milo has expensive taste and always knows what is best. We then see him walk towards the first of the four blankets. It is a UGG blanket, which costs about fifty dollars. Milo spends a minute on this beige blanket and seems to like it all alright.
However, he then proceeds to check out the second blanket. The second one, which was a dark blue blanket with white elephant prints all over it, was cute to look at but not up to Milo's standards. That is why he quickly moved on to the next one. The next blanket was an off-white one and was the most expensive one of the four. This $80 blanket was worth its price as the moment Milo stood on it, he started making biscuits. Not only that, he continued making biscuits on this expensive blanket for the next 20 or so minutes as well. However, the last one was far from the best one.
According to the overlay text of the video, the fourth blanket was the cheapest one of the four and was bought from Walmart. Since Milo seemed to have an expensive taste, he stayed true to his reputation and didn't even touch the Walmart blanket. He quite literally walked on the edge of the bed and jumped town to avoid accidentally walking on it. Milo's owner, however, picked him and put him on the blue and white Walmart blanket. That only seemed to somehow offend Milo even more and so he took a stand. The text read, "He was offended I placed him on something so cheap and came right back to the most expensive one." This video shows us that Milo is as bougee as they come, as clearly, his favorite blanket was the most expensive one of the lot.

Animals can sense it more than us, especially cats." @checlestheclown said, "I hope brands start sponsoring Milo to do quality control." Another individual, @silentscreenvamp, said, "That he didn't even want to touch the Walmart blanket has me cackling." @houston_solutions said, "Don't question his methods. He's trained for this. Lol."
@nonnahs79 said, "Milo just knows the high-quality ish! You have to do one with Milo's opinion with the voiceover that has me." Viewer @epic_cannabis_genetics said, "Nice blankets aren’t cheap. He’s just picking the softer higher thread count fabrics his claws won't destroy." @natz_robin said, "As a former Quality Control Manager, Milo would have been perfect for my team! This is quality work, Milo!"
