How To Deactivate A Kitten

Is this OK? I don’t think it is because it is being done for human consumption and not by the mother for natural reasons. But that is just me. I respect other people’s views.

"Deactivating" a Kitten

“Deactivating” a Kitten

It is activating the kitten’s natural response when being picked up by mother when moving her kittens. We all know that once the mother gently places her mouth around the loose skin of the back of the kitten’s neck, the kitten goes limp to facilitate the move.

In this gif movie the person places a clothes peg (clothespin – US) in exactly the same place and the kitten immediately goes limp. It is startling. It is like pressing the off button on a machine.

Note: a gif type movie is simply a series of still images knitted together on a computer to create a mini-movie. They self-run over and over again and you have no control over it. “Gif” refers to the image format type.

  1. HOW b****Y CRUEL! 🙁 Poor little kitten only doing what kittens do and a big BULLY comes along and overpowers the poor little soul.
    The only one scruffing any cat or kitten apart from in emergency should be mother cats.
    I’d like to put a GIANT peg on his scruff (or better still somewhere else where it would cause him a lot of pain)

    • I knew you’d hate it 😉 It is an abuse of the cat because the whole purpose is to create something that entertains people. There is no other reason for doing it. That seems wrong to me.

      Yes, if you hit a man very hard on the chin he falls over unconscious. It is a standard medical reaction. Or direct the blow a bit lower down and he doubles up and screams in pain…..

    • I agree – this is not funny – it’s actually mean really – at the expense of a little kitten for humans to laugh at. Although what he does is not exactly harmful it is just a blatant display of how humans look at animals, which is often as entertainment.

  2. How well you know me Michael ;0
    If I saw someone in real life doing it they would be unconscious alright after I’d finished with them!

  3. WHAT THE H_LL!!!
    I can hardly believe that anyone would EVER want to deactivate a kitten. Their energy and playfulness are all a part of what makes then so adorable.

  4. Stinking great big hairy BULLY! Showing off his power over a tiny cat, not amusing, not funny, not clever. I feel so sorry for that cat in his clutches. Sometimes I hate humans.

  5. In the neck of a cat/kitten is the same nerve that allows a human to be subdued by the “sleeper hold”. To use it for entertainment or unnecessary control is immoral and abusive.

  6. What a horrible ugly cruel bullying scumbag that man is,a kitten is not a toy with batteries to switch on and off oooh I’d like to get my hands on him and show him just how I deactivate animal abusers.

  8. Thats terrible! How awful to mess with nature like that! Some idiot thinking they are clever and yes it only seems to be for a minute or so but what is really he left that poor little kitten like that for ages? I don’t like it one bit 🙁
