The Choire Sicha Memorial Cat Video Post

We could not end Animal Day at The Awl without the internet’s most common currency, the cat video. I have to say, this clip-which is actually a “re-enactment” of an incident that occurred earlier, is somewhat shocking to me. Like, the cat was totally frazzled by a balloon stuck to it before and you thought it was so amusing that you were going to do it again? I am by no means an animal person (no disrespect intended to my colleague Cat the Cat), but I’ve got to say, in light of this and those “let’s toss our confused and frightened pets into the snow” videos, it seems an awful lot like being a cat owner makes a person remarkably hostile toward their charges. [Via]
