Here's what Jurassic Park would look like if the raptors were cats.

That is a suspiciously specific hypothetical. Is there something you would like to tell us?

This happens every day at my house. My cat is supposed to be on a diet and she knows that I have a hard, cold heart. So she ruthlessly pursues my 4-year-old around the kitchen, unleashing a series of MeeeeOWs that only increase in intensity. If the 4-year-old can make a run for it, she does. Too often, though, the child is cornered and forced to give the cat some of her Fat Kitty food. Is my cat grateful? No. She chows down on the fat kitty food with a resentful glare, because she would really like some delicious wet cat food instead.

They're moving in herds. They do move in herds.

The cats would have sniffed the kids out in a trice. And a tiny tabby can accelerate from 0 to 30 at will, turn on a penny, stop on a dive and give you back change. They hunt and kill for fun. Those kids would be toast.

Someone make a version where the kids are crispy slices of bread.

Admiral Haddock, I'll have you know I've talked exactly like that to my youngest cat. She's relentless and moves like the wind for purposes including harassing the other cats and snuggling with me. She can see me starting to lie down from another room, and be on top of me before my head hits the pillow.

See, the thing is, you can't scare off raptors by turning on the vacuum cleaner.

This stressed me out in a way I was NOT expecting. O_O

This is unconfirmed.

The funny thing is, house cats are actually really small and cuddly animals that aren't super intimidating though they can bite and scratch you pretty good. They really were alluding to Utah cats but they sound dorkier so they stuck with the house cat.

A house cat, huh? OK, try to imagine yourself in the Metafilter Period. You get your first look at this "six foot house cat" as you enter the living room. He moves like a kitty, daintily, making soft meows. And you keep still because you think that maybe his visual acuity is based on movement like T-Rex - he'll lose you if you don't move. But no, not the kitty. You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes. Not from the front, but from the side...

...from the other two cats you didn't even know were there. Because Kitty's a pack hunter, you see, he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this...

A retractable claw, like a razor, on all his toes. He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion, say... no no. He slashes at you here, or here...

...Or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is, you are alive when they start to eat you. So you know, try to show a little respect.

That was everything that I hoped it could be. I for one dread the day that the Internet stops producing such wonderful crap.

I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged in this bunker, or why.
posted by mbrubeck at 10:00 PM on March 7


Oh come on, young lady! Just tie your brother to a length of rope and pull him slowly across the floor! This wl keep the cats distracted for quite a while. Long enough to escape, at least.

It always bugs me when foley artists dub in random meows just because there's a cat in the scene. Because 95% of the time, it's clear the cat is in a mood or action that doesn't involve meowing.

Fake. Those cats took way too long to knock shit off of the tables.
