Fierce Kitty Stalks Her Prey!

Submitted by: gohikineko 1 month ago in Funny
Witness the brutality of nature as a mighty predator stalks her helpless prey... and pokes it.



Will someone please teach this cat how to cat? Lolz! I joke! Cats are wonderful animals who can learn to get along with anyone, even bunnies! That looks like a fun game, eh?

Where's the rest of the timid cat video? Must have used up most of its 9 lives!

Funny thing with this is even though the kitty isn't trying to hurt the bunny and is just playing, that play is it's instinct to practice hunting and killing.

holygod Domestic cats retain a lot of their kittenhood, and playing is just playing most of the time. Sure it is also practice for hunting, but it's mostly just fun :-)
They distinguish between play and serious business: there's no chance that bunny will be harmed.
Bunny is playing too: it's the "I'm invisible" game, lolz!

gohikineko Oh yah. For sure they are playing. But the instinct to chase, pounce, play that kittens have is so that they can practice "hunting" their siblings to prepare for hunting prey.

holygod Which is harmless, good clean fun, right? And same here for the bun-bun.
There is a HUGE difference between 'practicing' hunting and killing through play and, you know, actually hunting and KILLING things eh?
That's what the various "animal rights activists" were screeching about in response to this cute clip. The bunny was being tortured (according to them) and the human involved should be arrested...

Anyhow, every cat owner knows full well what you said is a fact, but why does that matter in the slightest? Honest question.

gohikineko Ya dude. We aren't arguing here. I just think it's funny when you watch kittens pounce on each other that they are practicing to kill.

It is sorta like when your dog grabs a squeak toy and shakes the shit out of it.

holygod Ok cool, some "anti-cat" people make it sound like killing mice and rats (their preferred prey, they (usually) only go after birds if there's none around) is a bad thing :/

Lots of housepets are predators that were domesticated, or food that was cute eh? Lolz!

Nice cat just wants a friend.  I think my cat would be terrified of a bunny rabbit.

daegog Mine might be terrified, she's scared of almost everything, especially bugs :p
But she did live with a bunny for a while... so maybe she'd be ok?

Posted in seconds! Lolz, nearly a record! ;-)

On the FaceBook page there's people complaining about the "poor terrified bunny" and how cruel the human is for recording this... really? That is clearly a calm and contented bun-bun inside someone's house on top of a counter with a human mere feet away. It is not a wild bunny and it isn't trapped in any way. That kitty loves the bunny and vice-versa!
Sheesh "animal rights activists" can take the joy out of anything they touch, can't they.

gohikineko This was a case of just the right content at just the right time. I had been chatting with Mel a few minutes beforehand about how we needed a cute animal post. I then checked the submission queue and -- boom! -- your submission came in with exactly what we were looking for.  :)
