What in the name of God happened here? It is shocking and peculiar. It shows how terrifying the domestic cat can be if they perceive a person as a hostile creature. They can do real damage.
My guess is that (a) there is a background tension in the home from the cats’ (there are 2) perspective which has perhaps wound the cats up to the point where it does not take a lot to set one of them off into a rampage of aggression as seen and (b) the women hiding herself – no idea why – resulted in one of the cats deciding that there was a strange and hostile creature in the home and not the owner. So (s)he attacked.
The strange aspect of this video is that it was made. Why was the woman videoing herself getting into a suitcase and then getting out of it? Did she know that her cats would react in this way? But was she surprised (see seems genuinely surprised) at the ferociousness of the reaction? Perhaps she expected a different reaction from her cats or one of the cats. She may have thought the cats would react in an entirely different way, perhaps an amusing way. The intention may have been to make a funny cat video not a horror movie!
NOTE: I HAVE NOTICED THAT THE VIDEO IS NOT WELL FORMATTED. IT IS NOT TALL ENOUGH. I HAVE TRIED TO REFORMAT IT WITHOUT SUCCESS. SORRY. IF YOU LICK ON THIS LINK YOU’LL BE TAKEN TO REDDIT TO SEE IT ALL BEING WELL.
