Brad: There was this whole industry in the late 1800s of making post cards with cats on them.
Brad: People don't realize though that cameras had really bad shutter speeds at the time.
Brad: So those cats were dead.
Lindsay: Oh my God.
Brad: They were stuffed and posed to look cute. And then people bought them because they were cute, even though you could pretty easily deduce that these were pictures of dead cats. And not even cats that had a full life–kittens specifically killed to be posed.
I looked at the video a few times, and it looks to me as though the cat has its mouth closed at the beginning, although it could be the camera angle. I choose to believe the cat is actually just horrified about the camera and making the same crazy cat yowling that I have seen numerous cats make when faced with another cat on the other side of the sliding glass door. So the mouth is a bit more open than most. I don't think it necessarily points to a pathology. I would have to examine to know for certain, but I've seen a great many cats with broken jaws and a few with tongue infections and electrical burns on their tongue and have never seen one look like that.
