Stupid boy torments and provokes a community cat — 6 Comments

  1. I hope that brat has deep scratches all up his legs from the cat attacking in pursuit. Then I hope he gets a beating from his parents for the scratches.

  2. I wasn’t like that when I was a kid but I saw it in other boys. I was always angry about it as I’ve thought it idiotic, unwarranted, unnecessary and just mean. Even when I became an adult and started working with horses and the trainers instructed me to annoy and agitate, even beat them to “get them used to being around people and being handled”… and to “teach” them by “breaking” them that we were their boss… I never bought into it and at age 64 I still don’t. I learned how to handle horse (and dogs, cats and the occasional wild critter) with care, compassion and understanding, validating that way to my satisfaction.

    • The kid was making like a snake. I’m glad the cat fought back,understandably with due cause, but kids like that don’t learn the lesson easily, and often they simply double down and become more mean and retaliate with the mistaken notion that now it’s justified to me mean. Animals learn, but people often just escalate and get into a circle of perpetual violence. One reason I never had kids too.
