Cat's frantic response to the opening of an automatic cat feeder

This is a TikTok video which shows a cat repeatedly becoming super-excited, almost frantic, to get to the automatic cat feeder which I presume is making a sound as it opens to alert the cat to the fact that food is available. 

Note: This is an embedded video from another website. Sometimes they are deleted at source or the video is turned into a link which stops it working here. I have no control over this.

The cat finds this incredibly exciting, and as you can see in the video, races towards the feeder for that precious food. 

The video gives me the impression that the cat is being starved 😃. Why else would a cat be so desperate to get to that food which is protected normally by the automatic feeder and which opens at a programmed time. That's my interpretation.  Perhaps she's being slightly starved to enable the owner to make the video. The video would not have been made but for this extraordinary reaction.

The video makers said: 

Beano: "Restraint? Never heard of it."

But why is this cat so hungry? Or why does he or she give the impression they are so hungry? Questions without answers. Perhaps the food is particularly tasty or the cat is particularly hungry or perhaps a bit bored and eating cat food can be entertaining for a bored cat.

I don't have answers but it is a video which has done particularly well on TikTok. This does not surprise me considering the frantic and instant motivation to get to that automatic cat feeder.
