Oscar Worthy: Cat Plays Dead Very Convincingly

January 31, 2019

This is a short video from Buriram, Thailand of a cat who's learned to play dead right up there with the very best of dogs. That other cat behind it -- I'm not sure what it's good at, but based on the video I'm guessing licking itself and watching. Now not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'm not too bad at those things either.

Keep going for the whole video (it plays dead twice) while I write in this cat for every Oscar category including best makeup and sound design.

Thanks to Irina A, clearly on the cutting edge of all things cat related.

  • This is animal abuse, seriously why would you pretend this is something cute!

    I want this to be cute, but it makes me very sad cuz he’s yanking the poor kitten’s scruff so fast that he cries a little bit the second time :(

    In asia cats play dead to prevent from becoming lunch.

    I could love that kitten forever!

    But enough on your best activity.

    The_Wretched: I have a new kitten (well, since October 2018). He's a perfect angel and a best friend. He even eats potato chips.=) Just saying...

    looks like they're grabbing the scruff, which on a kitten makes them go limp, thinking their mom is carrying them around...but maybe it's just playing dead...

  • AGirlNamedMichael

    Yeah it's pretty obvious the second time...her "pew" also suspiciously coincides with the "playing dead", and the second time you can hear the kitten squeak pretty clearly, which is what they do when you grab them very suddenly by the scruff like that.

    Yes, I was thinking the same thing.
