THE COUCH — Cats have amazing reflexes, but that doesn’t always mean those reflexes are always beneficial.
Sure they can twist midair to always land on their feet, and they can leap around like a ninja, but it still doesn’t make them 100% graceful creatures.
The other reflex that may apply here today is what cats do when you try to pet their hyper sensitive bellies. You get one hand on a cat belly for more than .5 seconds, and a cat will use its teeth and hind claws to rip your arm to absolute shreds.
In this video, you’ll meet George, a 4-year-old orange tabby. George has just woken from a nap and decided that his back feet need a cleaning. Boring for non-cat owners.
But as he’s cleaning between his toes, he just can’t stop kicking himself. In the face. And it’s laugh-out-loud hilarious.
It’s like his hind legs have a mind of their own with no compassion for the rest of his body. They’re just tools for brutality no matter what or who is bothering the cat, even if it’s the cat itself.
You could argue that George is really ticklish on his feet, and it’s hard not to react even when you’re tickling yourself. However, for the last set of kicks, he doesn’t even lick his legs but rather turns over without provocation and kicks himself in his face, almost like he enjoys it.
Bless the weird cats that directly fuel the internet.
