Thank you so much. I wish I had a cat. This eases the pain, somewhat.

I got inspired tonight by my cat going batshitinsane over a stretchy hair tie. She was tearing through the house with it in her mouth, flinging it all over the floor and making all kinds of crazy cat meows and chirps.

Being baffled by things humans find commonplace looks like amazing fun.

Also that cat looks so pissed off when, despite multiple whacks to the head, the raccoon snags a handful of food and quietly waddles away to eat. I love raccoons.

Now I want to fight something. Preferably a cat.

cat vs rabbit

These are great. Love the "copter" video. One of my two cats knows how to turn on my printer. Often I wake up to find shredded paper on the floor!

So a cat fixes a printer pretty much the same way a human does.

Oh my god I just found this one, poor lady. Guess you could call it, cat vs. reporter. Also, cat vs. beard and cat vs. testicles.

Nice collection, but as a cat lover, I'm a little disappointed there weren't more examples of the cat winning. Those tend to be headless blood-spattered affairs though, so it would probably be less funny.

crawfish...

Gotta love how the dog is like bored... WTF cat and crawfish? Yawn.

The classic: Cat vs Bear
posted by Popular Ethics at 9:39 PM on July 9, 2009


None of these videos (including especially cat vs. rabbit) disproves the working hypothesis in my house that:
CATS ARE DUMB.
Fer christ's sake, cat's can't even win against a large inanimate watermelon. Or a mudbug. And as evidenced by drjimmy, they get entirely pwned by rabbits.
RABBITS! prey animals.
∴ cats are dumb.

It's just as well the kitty never managed to open the watermelon. It would have just eaten the whole thing.

Oh, man. Looks like an RC helicopter is the new laser pointer.

And I love the watermelon battle; kitty keeps looking for its neck: "what? no neck here either? bah! I'll kill this chair instead"

...cat vs. testicles.

But(t) on preview I see that your last hyperlink is to that of Pinky! ; )

I think the dog just pretended to be taking a nap there, with it's face conveniently right next to the action. It looked like it was sending secret messages to the crawfish "Go for the nose! Go for the nose!!"

Always loved the cat v. printer, but I feel Matrix-style cat v. puppies to be superior.

Cat Vs adult raccoon would probably not end so well for the cat...

This is exactly what I needed this morning. Thank you.

Thank you. These are fun.

I'm fascinated by the cat v helicopter. I'd have expected the cat to be terrified of the noisy thing. It seems as if the cat is easier about buzzy things that fly. I've seen cats terrified of other remote control gizmos that roll (or even wind up thingies).

AUGH! JESUS WHY DID I CLICK THIS?! (not safe for arachnophobes)

I don't normally like cat vs XYZ because normally one party or the other looks terrified. But the second cat vs copter makes me want to buy an RC chopper for my two.

Do all cats traditionally hate mirrors? One of our ignores them, and the other one understands them perfectly - to the extent that she will hunt me using a mirror as part of her armoury of evil.

Cat vs wall (cat wins), Cat vs squirrel.

I think what I like most about cats is that, in the big feline decision-making flowchart, all of those little diamond boxes like "Is it animate? Yes/No," "Is it larger than me? Larger/Same/Smaller," "Can I eat it? Yes/Maybe/No," all lead to this cloud with a tiny game spinner on it, and then out to rectangles marked "Attack," "Ignore," and "Run" ... and next back to the game spinner.

Ferret vs Jalapeno

Before I ever even clicked on the link, I just knew that the pepper would win. Related:I shouldn't find sad ferrets so funny. It makes me a bad person.

Cat vs... raccoon

I love that first grab, where the raccoon clearly knows what's coming, but goes in through the flurry of kitty thwacks to grab a handful of kibble. Because you just know the cat was thinking "WTF? You can take the food with you? That's some bullshit!"

I'm thinking cat = pirate and ferret = ninja.

*watches rahnefan's link*

So that's why my cats attack my feet when they are standing on the edge of the bed. They think that the blanket monster is a ferret.
