Coal Ball Baby is a cat which appeared in the video "Coal Ball Baby😳 bewildered by being hit with freeze-dried food"[1]. The video, just as it implies, shows Coal Ball Baby getting shocked and getting hit with Freeze-dried chicken snacks. His name comes from his dark coating and small, fluffy appearance during the time that this video was captured. Coal Ball Baby can be seen at the Eat Enough Every Day (每天都能吃饱饱) feeder. Coal Ball Baby is one of the the Coal Miners, alongside his brothers Coal Ball Brother and Batman Coal Ball.

Behavior

Despite his earliest appearance, where he was shown to be very bewildered, Coal Ball Baby has become notably more relaxed as he's aged. He no longer fears the feeder, and continues eating even as snacks are being dropped. He has also been observed at the feeder with several other cats, suggesting he is friendly.

Appearance

Coal Ball Baby is a tuxedo cat, with a white belly and neck. In its original sighting, Coal Ball Baby was a small fluffy kitten who resembled a ball of coal. More recently, Coal Ball Baby has been observed to be larger than its famous video and less fluffy, although still distinctly coal shaped. Coal Ball Baby is often confused with his brother, Coal Ball Brother, but can be distinguished by his chin, which is mostly white with a black dot.
