FUNNY CATS (back me up here)
posted by Pretty_Generic (35 comments total)
Yes, this is an hilarious video. I've had it on my desktop at work for the past few years, and watch it whenever I need a good laugh. The internet is a vast repository of silly cat stuff (blatant self-link to a long list of cat-related stuff, most of it goofy).

I played this with the sound off expecting it to have some kind of America's Funniest Videos soundtrack to it- I think the silence makes it better.

I was ready to write some snarky comment about how this is stupid, right up until the part where the cat jumps out of the bushes onto the baby. That's where I cracked up in the middle of my office.

My wife sent me this one awhile ago.

I love it, it makes me laugh every time. I love cats.

The version with yakitty-sacks as a soundtrack is far superior.

Does the cat-throwing bit worry anyone?

Nope, Four Flavors, she tossed the cat gently, and seeing it dangle there was one of the clips that made me laught the hardest. That and the one where the cat leaps out at the baby.

P_G: that was a desperately needed laugh. Hope it lifts other's spirits, too. Thanks.

the site appears to be sending a header for a text document.

Boxing kitties

My god, I had no idea that 1894 happened in 1924! Boxing cats are the route to education.

Stuff on cats.

Personally, I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their scanners, or why.

More Friday Cat Fun, interactive even. (yeah, self link...)

In the war between cats and babies, the babies didn't stand a chance.

Whoa, that's nice ae4rv.

jdroth: whoa! Cat in zero-G! Now that was funny.

jdroth: I see you have "teasing cat" on your site. My favorite cat video ever.
posted by peep at 3:05 PM on July 8, 2005

OK, I grudgingly opened IE as well to watch this, and as it started I thought "this is dumb". Then, as it went on, I started to chuckle and laugh a bit. Something about the sum of the parts....

Joining in the fun with a blatant self-link: no pictures, just an old story about my brother's cat George. Possibly worth a grin or two...

I laughed many times. THANK YOU!

You know, I always preferred that cat to his girl counterpart.

Hilarious video -- made the rounds at work a while back. Though my heart goes out to that poor kitty who encountered the cactus. Those were some fast-movin' paws!

I needed that. Thanks.

Great vids and pictures. I really, really wish we'd managed to get video of the day my mother's 30lb ball of pure feline evil chased a pair of full grown Labs away from our yard by running full-tilt down the gravel driveway while dragging a 15lb metal toolbox behind him (he was tied to it with about 20ft of rope so he wouldn't go under the house). The dogs' owners just stood there and laughed.

Your mother's 30lb ball of pure feline evil looks like one mean motherfucker! Good for her!

The soundtrack is hideous, spare yourself.
The images are funny/cute, basically just a lot of cats being cats.
Made me wanna go play with mine.

I'm a dog guy. I hate cats. Except those cats (on the video) which are hilarious or any cats I've actually gotten to know.

I love that video.

Is there one floating around with dogs? she asked hopefully.
posted by Savannah at 10:10 PM on July 8, 2005

I pretty much never get tired of seeing cats fall down.
