Reason why I hate cats. They’re so scary.
THE BABY SMACKED THE CAT WHY ARE YOU BLAMING THE ANIMAL
All the fucking time. People have their pets euthanized because they did something to their kid who fucking hit them or pulled on their tail or got in their face or something. Here’s a better idea: WATCH YOUR FUCKING KID WHEN THEY’RE AROUND ANIMALS. Okay thanks.
I’m just sitting here laughing my ass off because the kid deserved what they got. I don’t know how many times my niece has done this to my cats and I just sit there and let her get the cats revenge. Sure I get screamed at by my family for letting the cat do it but my niece is 4 she should no better by now.
Precisely. A cat reacts on animal instinct. A kid learns either by example, or by being told by parents that HEY THAT’S A FUCKING BAD IDEA LEAVE THE CAT ALONE BECAUSE IT WILL ACT ON INSTINCT AND FUCK YOU UP.
I think that kid got off easy, really. That cat really could have fucked that kid up, but instead it just scratches (and maybe bites?) the kid’s face and pushes them off the bed.
yeah. you notice how the cat just pushed the kid back and left?
the cat doesnt want to hurt the kid. the cat just wants to be left alone. it made that clear and stepped back.
no but the cat is evil for not wanting to be harassed. i hate tumblr sometimes.
I certainly hope that kid got punished for that. That was one hell of a slap on that poor cat’s head.
It doesn’t matter HOW the child was provoked hitting an animal isn’t okay or excusable.
Seeing this kind of thing makes me very angry, not because a cat is being slapped but because this child just flat out does it as if it’s okay. Teach your damn kids that hitting ANYTHING (human or animal) is NOT okay. Just because they hurt you doesn’t give you a right to hurt them.
They’re animals, they don’t think like we do and most of the time they hurt you because they’re scared or defending something or themselves.
I really really hope this kid got a good lesson from this ordeal and I HOPE their mum and dad give them a good talking to about hitting things.
Poor cat =/ That was quite a wallop =/
Sorry, but if you bring your kid to my house and he slaps my cat, I will spank the ever living shit out of that kid and yell at you for being a horrible parent. Animals aren’t toys or playthings, they have feelings, and anyone who fucks with my cat gonna get a bat to the face. NOT SORRY EVEN SLIGHTLY.
Your kid hurts my cat, I will let him fuck your shit up.
We used to babysit the kids in the neighborhood sometimes and one of them used to pinch and hit my mom’s cat’s belly. Subsequently, this normally sweet, cuddly cat runs and hides from kids. Because this kid did not leave her alone.
Legit I don’t get why people have these cat fears as expressed by the first comment. Cats generally won’t stay when tormented, they spring into action and then hide, cats do not want to fight or bite commonly. If a cat slaps or hisses at you, leave it alone. Very few cats I’ve ever been around (which is literally in the thousands including wild and feral) are mean cats. There are much fewer cats with aggression issues than there are dogs and for some reason I find people ‘scared’ of cats all the time… not sure where this misunderstanding about cats come from but seriously 99.99999% of cats will only strike out when provoked or scared. So be calm and nice and for fucks sake don’t give your kid free reign just because its a nice kitty.
