That's an oldie... but a goodie indeed.

The whole concept of cat-on-leash is fundamentally flawed.

This is Pinkey, he's a terrified cat. He hates the collar and leash. He isn't keen on the fuckwit handling him. Pinkey love, I'd give up on humans now.

I was feeling really sorry for the cat until about the last fifteen seconds.

Way to go Pinky!

One of my favourite things on the internet, ever.

That one seems to get endless play on those “peculiar things caught on camera” shows here; kind of makes me cringe though as the thing is so obviously in extreme distress.

"Right. I'm a highly-trained animal enforcement officer who has, over many years, developed a refined rapport with various species, and I'd like to demonstrate you the proper procedure for handling an "upset" animal:

"First you straddle the cat that is writhing like an acrobat on speed having an epileptic seizure, thus exposing your genitals to its claws.

"And AAAAAAAAGH! is the proper way to release your emotional response to pain.

"Then, in hindsight, you should realize that even a less-than-sensitive appraisal of the animal's character would reveal that some cats should never be put on a leash to begin with.

"Think about this while the doctor is stitching together your penis."

Aw, the poor guy is just trying to get Pinky adopted and into a nice home as opposed to like having to gas him, but Pinky's not having any of it.

Wow. Poor, poor kitty. I'm always distressed when animals that are being *helped* by humans simply don't understand (duh) and go into "attack" mode. Damn.

Hope that both of them turned out OK.

one thing's for sure - pinky's long since forgotten about it. Probably not the case for that guy though.

A few months ago we were walking in the park, and a guy was walking a full-grown male cat on a leash (or I think it was maybe actually a small harness). The cat seemed to love it. I always thought you had to train them to do this from a kitten - but he said he did not start walking him as a kitten, but only a few months before. It may just be certain cats' personalities are suited to being walked. We never let our outside, but I'd love to train one of them to go for walks, but this has never worked for ours.

I used to walk around my apartment complex at about 2am and all three of my cats would follow me, no leashes necessary. Believe it or not.

Pinky is also probably long since dead, considering that man was an animal control officer and the setting was an animal shelter.
