Mr. Fresh (新鲜哥, "Brother Fresh") is a famous internet cat. He has risen to fame thanks to a video of him giving the camera a side-eye (see picture). He was named Mr. Fresh after his patient yet picky behavior regarding the food he will eat. Mr. Fresh is not seen very often, described to be a "Rare Encounter" by the community. Since he is such a celebrity, any stream in which he is sighted will increase in viewership considerably.

He won as the 2nd Most Favorite Cat in the Hello Street Cat (EN) Community 1st and 2nd Weekly Fan Poll just a few votes less than The Gluttonous Beast. In the 3rd Weekly Fan Poll he did not win any places for the All Feeders category, but did win 2nd place for the Happy Canteen category.

The feeders he has been seen at is 快乐大食堂, 吉祥食府, 新鲜哥lastday, and now currently can be seen at Brother Fresh's Exclusive Castle CatMojo.


Mr. Fresh used to only eat freshly dispensed food. He would stare at the camera and, on rare occasions, even touch it with his paws until fresh food is dispensed. It is said that he refuses to eat already dispensed kibble after eating a bunch that had been contaminated by bird poop.

He has also been seen peeking his head near the sides of the feeders to check if other cats are currently present. He will not eat if there are other cats already at the feeder, and so he will retreat and return at another time or visit another available feeder. It is said that the reason he peeks his head out of the feeder is because he was attacked by another cat while eating.

He is scared of humans, being scared away when caretakers encounter him when they arrive to refill the feeders.

Recently he has been less picky, being able to eat the Freeze-dried chicken snacks without having to wait for donators to dispense more.


Mr. Fresh appears to be a Domestic Shorthair cat. He has a Ginger Mackerel Tabby fur coat with low grade white spotting (white fur on the neck and paws, even extending to a small white spot to the left of his nose). His whiskers are white, he has Hazel eyes, and his paw beans are pink.

In his famous "side eye" video, he is fairly skinny. The reason of his thinness was due to him refusing to eat not freshly dispensed food. Nowadays due to him not minding the kibble or snacks being a bit older, Mr. Fresh has gained a considerable amount of weight.

Mr. Fresh has been mistaken for other orange cats, here are the comparison photos.

Mr. Fresh first arrived to the feeder in early June of 2023[1], the first known video footage was on June 19, 2023 when a Douyin user named 瞌睡橘 record the first known video of Mr. Fresh (channel removed for unknown reason).[2] It took a while to get to an English audience until October 8th, 2023, when the TikTok user @catzoo1 posts a clip of Mr. Fresh[3], which gained hundreds of thousands of views and likes in the span of a few months. His most famous video, in which he gives the "side eye" to the camera, was posted to TikTok on January 6th, 2024 by the user @marceloeguino[4]. This video received millions of views and likes on the platform, and it was shared to many other social media websites, thus solidifying his presence in meme culture as the "side eye cat".

Mr. Fresh judging you (he knows what you did)

On more recent sightings of him from the Hello Street Cat stream and other sources, it has been noticed that he has visibly gained more weight, looking a bit chubbier than on his original famous video. This sometimes confuses new viewers who do not expect his chubbier appearance.

Mr. Fresh on the Brother Fresh's Last Day Stream

March 2024

  • March 12, 2024: Mr. Fresh was seen on the on the Brother Fresh's Last Day stream. Due to him being adopted, the guardian of his feeder decided to put up a live stream.

Post that was made on the Hello Street Cat App regarding Mr. Fresh

Regarding the adoption arrangements for Mr. Fresh,
As of today, Mr. Fresh has been residing in the stray cat isolation room for 18 days. During this time, he has been carefully taken care of and accompanied by two experienced colleagues who are adept at raising cats. However, due to his long history of being a stray, Mr. Fresh still maintains a strong sense of wariness and does not allow people to approach him closely to other cats.
During this period, we have been maintaining active communication with the guardian. In last week's exchange, we learned that the guardian has found an adopter for Mr. Fresh and plans to take him to the adopter's home soon. As a platform, we will assist the guardian in formulating the adoption agreement and conduct a review of the adopter to ensure that Mr. Fresh can live safely, happily, and quietly in the future.
We are pleased to see that Mr. Fresh's mealtime scenes, captured by the cat house camera, have attracted the love of many supporters. Because of Mr. Fresh, everyone has begun to care for more stray cats. We have also noticed that many people in the cat community are calling for the hope to see Mr. Fresh on camera again.
To give everyone the opportunity to reunite with Mr. Fresh once more, before he is adopted, we have decided to place a cat house in the isolation room. Concerned friends of Mr. Fresh can visit the cat house labeled "Mr. Fresh's last day". The cat house is exclusively for Mr. Fresh, so please feed him rationally. Thank you for your support and understanding.
  • March 13, 2024: Mr. Fresh was captured by his guardian or a vet, and the stream of Brother Fresh's Last Day was temporarily shut off for about thirty minutes before returning. At around 03:00 PM Mr. Fresh was given a cone of shame and forced to be checked out by a staff member or possible vet. After only 5 minutes he was let free again. The following text was posted by Hello Street Cat staff. Mr. Fresh will probably be on the "Last Day" stream for the following week.

The following post was made about Fresh's Adoption.

This afternoon, we took Mr. Fresh to the vet for a comprehensive pre-adoption examination. This examination revealed that he has Urinary Tract Stones and Cystitis due to long term wandering. The doctor recommended giving medicine first and returning in a week. In the next week, we will give him medicine and feed him prescribed food according to the doctors recommendation. Other exams are still waiting. After the results are back we will share them with everyone.
