    That's funny as heck. Even though I really don't like cats much I find myself watching goofy pet vids on YT including cats.

    True dat, but I don't go searching for that kind to bombard our bad dog cafe. I stumbled across it, found it funny enough to share it.
    what put me off a bit was the stickey paws, +music part. just ...why?
    the rest gets my paws/thumbs up. :)

    I hate seeing cats being weirded out by the sounds of other cats, either in distress or not. It seems cruel to me.

    The dog says, “My humans. They give me shelter, feed me, & take care of all my needs”. They must be gods

    With you on that, just tormenting or frightening them for our own ‘entertainment’ is just wrong.

    One of my cats certainly is not human

    <----

    Satanic cat from hell, though in reality he's a sweetheart.
    My wife for some reason took this picture of Alfie on the window sill and screamed when she looked at the picture.
    I assume that he was looking directly into the flash when it when off.
    His brother is not quite so demonic.

    That rings true. I’ve got a feral who adopted us. After a couple of years of owning our yard, she has now decided that my job in life is to pet her. She rolls over flat on her back and says “look at me, aren’t I magnificent!”. When I stop petting her and walk away she chases me and bats (or nips) at my feet to get me to stop and pet her godly self some more.

    What sobers me is how cats are "in on the fun of life" 100% for the first 11 or so weeks of their life - they're very cool. A wonder, in fact.

    And then a switch is flipped and suddenly they're depressed, neurotic and unkind to others and themselves. I wish I didn't see it this way, but most grown cats (a few exceptions) seem miserable. Like they accepted domestication at a moment of weakness and now they endure a lifetime of regret. As some husbands and wives do. I'm sure hope I am mistaken.

    People let inside cats out, knowing they will devour bluebirds and other passerines, I think out of a sense of guilt. My animal's life is too rigid - too confined. Some kind of outlet must be presented but what? They let the imprisoned cat out of the house to do its business and engage in some killing, and then back into arrest and jail the tortured animal goes.

    Strictly because domestic cats cannot tell us what they're experiencing, I offer the choice made by an enslaved mother, towards her human child:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Garner

    Would domestic cats make the same choice, if they could?
