Dayummm. I have been writing off cats lately as I have been entertaining getting a dog lately, but this is some next level catshit.

It looks like that cat may have gotten bit, so kinda sad.

I hope housecat doesn’t have to deal with that on a regular basis.

That’s eight lives left.

It probably helps that angry cats can speak snake.

Cats are small, but they manage to fit a lot of bastard in.

A Filipino colleague told me about the night he heard a commotion from the (supposedly) empty bedroom in his house. He opened the door to find a terrified cobra being swatted back and forth between his two Siamese cats. Feeling he had little to contribute to the matter, he wisely shut the door.

The cats were fine.

After a few seconds, you can hear the snake mutter “fuck this” before slithering off.

I think you mean “fuck thissssss”…

And the SOB stood there, filming his cat possibly getting killed?

I hope someone films him fighting off a cobra bare handed that is trying to get into bed with him.

If you are a cat, violence is always an option, and usually the first option. You see yourself as the apex predator of where ever you are, and are totally willing to kick ass on whatever crosses your path. And you have human servants who will clean up the mess. It’s a good life.
