Viral video shows a man lifting a cat from his patio to his second-story balcony using a bucket

I found an adorable video on MSN.com. It was filed under ‘viral video,’ and shows a man lifting a cat from his patio to his second-story balcony using a bucket.

There’s no embed code for me (but see below) to share the video straight to this article so you’ll have to click here to view it. The video stopped working on my computer about 20 seconds from the end. It’s likely a computer issue so maybe you’ll have better luck.

UPDATE BY MICHAEL: I have the video embedded below (it took some effort I have to say!).

The video shows the cat walking over to the bucket that has been sent down to the patio. He gets settled in and his owner pulls him up. You can tell the cat is used to this routine and likely enjoys what’s about to happen.

Most of the video shows his owner grooming the cat with the cat enjoying the attention. The cat comes over to check out the camera at one point.

The video doesn’t show us whether kitty stayed inside and took a nap or whether he/she was lowered back down the same way he came up. I also wonder what kind of training was done since the cat isn’t stressing out on the ride up.

If you like this video, there are many more available on YouTube. Just not for this one. I hate that because I like to get the video posted into the actual article whenever I can.

Please search using the search box at the top of the site. You are bound to find what you are looking for.

  1. I’ve seen this kind of thing before; I love when cats do this, because you know they understand it. It’s not something they stumble into every time. They get it; they have to or they’d freak out. He’s gentle with her too, which is what it takes. Trust in you is their basis for doing anything tricky.

    • Yes, what I like is how obedient the cat is and how passive and accepting when he/she is in the basket. The owner is very gentle as you say. A good cat guardian. I’d fear for the cat’s life though as she/he lives on the street it seems to me.
