June 26 (UPI) -- A pair of cats in Japan that have been trained to ring bells for treats have improved their act by donning fruit-shaped hats.

Twitter user b_ru_ru shared a series of videos showing the two well-trained felines frantically tapping on the bells to receive treats while sporting the silly hats.

The first video from June 17 features the cats wearing apple-shaped hats, while maintaining the bell-ringing skills that first made them viral stars.

For the next four days b_ru_ru shared videos featuring the cats wearing melon, banana, orange, strawberry and watermelon hats.

Each video features the cats ringing their individual bells before staring directly ahead at their owner in anticipation of their tasty prize.

Occasionally, the cats lowered their heads closer to the plate after ringing the bell to get to the snack more quickly, or reached their paw out to snatch it before it even hit the plate.

One treat fell onto the floor while the cats were dressed as bananas, leaving one cat searching beneath the table for most of the video.
