I prefer funny animated cat gifs to funny cat videos and photos

There are basically three kinds of funny cat presentations: animate gifs, videos and pictures. There are 120 million websites presenting funny cat videos! Perhaps there is something wrong with me but I don’t find funny cat videos funny most of the time. The same applies to funny cat photos (22 million websites).

However there are some funny cat gifs that amuse me. Animated gifs are a series of photos strung together in a digital image format called a “.gif”. When they are strung together they make a video because the photos were taken rapidly one after the other perhaps half a second apart of less. The photos can be strung together using software. It is fairly easy to do. The short video is them looped to constantly replay.

Here are three I find slightly amusing. They are harmless. One reason I don’t like funny cat videos and pictures is because I always think that they were made by a person who does not like cats. There is that nasty, mickey taking side to them. Sometimes they are actually very nasty as far as I am concerned. Even these three have something about them that I don’t like. It is almost as if the maker wants to make the cat look funny stupid.

The cat closing the box checks when it is closed to make sure the ends are nicely aligned! That is what it looks like. Of course, it isn’t that. He has taken on human characteristics.

  1. I think it makes a difference if the cat is playing and willing to participate but to force cats to ‘perform’ just to make a video is wrong.
    One that stuck in my mind was a newly declawed cat, just home from the vets, bandages still on her mutilated paws. A man and woman were persuading her to walk so that they could film her taking a step then holding her painful paws up in turn. They were laughing hysterically!!!!
    Video clips like that make me cry every time about the cruelty of some people.

    • I am glad I never heard or saw this video you mention Ruth – I’d be in tears. I agree – making a cat perform can be detrimental. It depends – empathy and love have to be there, if not its abusive.

      • I forced myself to watch it so that I could comment but I really don’t know how much more I can take right now of cruel people. I heard such an awful story the other day that some inhumane waste of space did to a cat, that I can’t bear to repeat it to people who love cats, but it’s now another image in my tortured mind.
        I just hope the rotten low life scumbag is caught.
        Sometimes our battle seems hopeless against so much cruelty.

      • I was furious and I told them what cruel sadistic low life they are too 🙁
        Honestly Dee if I met any animal abuser at present I swear I’d kill them!

        • I understand completely.
          To me, there is no greater crime than to prey on and harm the helpless, harmless, and vulnerable ones who have just as much right to walk this earth as I do.
