That’s not abuse! Especially in cat world. The kitten was looking for a little tussle and got what he was looking for. He also got a little lesson in manners. I’m not saying humans should knock their kids out or anything but I absolutely know lots of families that play fight or play sports together.


Harsimaja

I don’t see much evidence of abuse from the parent here. If I’d done that to my definitely non-abusive dad as a kid I’d expect to get off less lightly.


Pitiful_Stretch_7721

Dad is teaching cat to not try it on a strange cat that WON’T stop, like he did


Danhuangmao

Also teaching the kitten the danger of a frontal assault. In time the kitten will switch to trying sneak attacks, which are much more effective for hunting as well as fighting.


Varrel

The kitten needs to remember about advantage to add his sweet 2d6 sneak attack.


salamander_1710

Yeah, they deal 1d6 extra damage


ArbitraryBaker

This is not a parent. This clip gets posted every few months, some saying it’s a dad, some it’s mom, etc. It’s obvious to anyone who’s raised kittens with a mommy cat and a daddy cat that these cats don’t know each other well. This is a kitten that was recently brought into a home where the larger ginger cat already lived. They are establishing dominance, it’s perfectly normal, not abusive, and no grudges will be held. I’m sure a few weeks after this clip they were the best of friends.


LilianaCole

So what you’re telling me is that’s a baby kitten looking for its mama and papa and probably looking for some comfort in a strange new house… and the other cat is just some stranger who’s pissed off that he moved in. That’s honestly just so sad and it actually pisses me off.


FiveNations54

You're applying human behavior to that of an animal, which doesn't work in this scenario. Whether a house cat-type, as shown here, or a larger feline such as a tiger or lion, this behavior from a parent to the offspring is a learning lesson. They're teaching them. It's all within their natural instincts.


DeadSoul7

This is not abuse. He stopped as soon as kiddo learned his lesson. He didn't antagonize it or coax it into an attack either. It would qualify as abuse if he started messing with it for no reason or if he just didn't stop.


MrJackTheNasty

thats not how cat relationships work tho

HeliRyGuy

Reminds me of two of our cats. One is a kitten, a recent feral rescue. So she’s kinda bananas. Our patriarch is a stray that adopted us a few years back. Big old tomcat. And I mean BIG… dude tips the scales at 25 lbs. You think she would learn to leave the juggernaut alone. But no. Every damn day she picks a fight with him. And every damn day she gets her ass handed to her. Lucky he’s so old most of his teeth are gone, but one swipe of the paw sends her flying like a frisbee.

Not OP, but here is my 9 lb semi-crazy former-feral and 19.5 lb doofus doing combat in what I called The Chair Battle Royale With Cheese: https://i.imgur.com/uRzPWKC.jpg Notice how her ears are back and her mouth is open like she means business (which she does). And his ears are forward and and he is just reaching out like he is messing with her (which he is). He's a little chonky, but you can tell by how he is standing that is is just a big damn cat. When he pins her, it is all over.


AdDry725

Yes yes, that is a very Chonky Boi.


FunStuff446

Warpedme

We had a stray that moved in when I was growing up that was declawed (I was a kid not my call) and could still whack any dog without her claws hard enough to make them ki'ike and run away. Of course our smallest Chihuahua made it her life goal to fuck with this cat every single day and, while she got really good dodging, the results were always the same eventually. On the upside. Whenever we saw a 4lb Chihuahua stalking anything, we stopped to watch the show because it was garunteed to *always* earn some laughs.


[deleted]

I jumped the other day at a mighty “THWACK” sound and turned just in time to see my 60lb dog scamper off with her head down and my 10lb cat swishing her tail watching her go. I was shocked at how loud it was she must have smacked her hard.

How ya say “uncle” in cat.


eternally_feral

Is it the dad or is the kitten a new part of the family that the older cat just doesn’t like? My ex tried to integrate his younger cat to his roommate’s 3 older cats and it was a very hellish, rowdy acclamation time.


rainbowtartlet

I can almost guarantee the big cat does not hate the little cat. Cats dont exactly tolerate that behavior so calmly if they have a real issue lol. Older cat really just seems like he is teaching kitten, you dont do that! He stopped right after the kitten screamed and stayed with an exposed belly. He would've at least hid his belly if he was serious


FennecWF

Definitely. Kittens are dumbasses and big cats like that won't hurt them a grand majority of the time.


IceBearCares

Claws usually stay retracted. Our cats liked to remind younger brother who was boss. Claws stayed in. Once a kid stopped smelling like a baby (about age 5) then the claws would come out if they were pissed.


Stangilstrap

Sometimes its just the parent teaching the child how to act.


DonnaDoRite

Oooooo. Poor baby. That was a bit harsh, Dad.


thegreattemptation

Dad stopped when the kitten screamed. Cats, like most mammals, teach their offspring social rules.


ApprehensivePhase377

So true! Dad had to regulate on the little upstart! I read that a good way to keep puppies and kittens from hurting you while playing is to yelp rather than punish them and in my limited experience it works.


DxJoshxD

It works with kittens too. We got ours way young like a day after the mom abandoned her and i had to teach her how to safely play and the fake crying thing really works.


Organic_Ema

It’s so cool how humans and non-human animals all learn so much through playing


DonnaDoRite

I know-still difficult to watch!! 😬


thegreattemptation

I feel ya!


BananaStringTheory

> Cats, like most mammals, teach their offspring social rules. At one time, humans also did this, but no more. Which is why there are more ferals running around than ever. Completely clueless on how to behave in civilized society.


Danhuangmao

DrThatOneGuy

KorrosiveKandy

babyBear83

I think any cat would respond the same when being attacked like that. Sadly. The kitty wasn’t play fighting and tried out real attack skills. I hope he didn’t get his butt scratched too hard!


SaltMineSpelunker

Call that “single trial learning”


squishybloo

Not very smart, tbh. We're only assuming this is 'dad cat' because they're the same color. Domestic cats, like big cats, practice infanticide and males with a strange kitten should not be allowed to interact this closely. :/ Those bunnykicks are done to disembowel.


Peaceweapon

To disembowel, and to simulate play. How much disembowelling have you seen a cat do to another cat? And how much playing have you seen?


AdDry725

Actually a good point. The owner should keep a close eye on this. Male cats do kill strange kittens sometimes.


Whitewolftotem

To be fair- not to dispute your point!- my male 6 yo adopted a week old kitten we found. I don't think he had ever seen a tiny kitten before. She tried to nurse on him and he was pretty startled. But we could see that he knew that she needed someone to teach her how to cat. So he did. She's 5 now and still whatever he does is what a cat's supposed to do, so she does it, too. When she was tiny, he would look for her if he hadn't seen her in a little bit and he cleaned her, too. He's a sweetheart. An orange boy, too.

Atcollins1993

My 2 year old tabby does it to me all the time when we play. It literally inflicts zero pain, they retract their claws, it’s just a soft cat toe massage. I’d bet everything I own the dad did the exact same thing. He did that to assert dominance and get a message across, not to inflict pain.


Slammogram

Uhm, I’ve been bunny kicked where a cat did not retract the claws and that shit hurts.


CryptographerOk5546

Yea not every cat is like yours. Check my post and I have an image of one of cats scratch me pretty bad. Not on purpose. Nails trimmed and everything. Other cat I don’t trim the nail and he doesn’t scratch when does the bunny kicks.


NecroLollicon

I see a lot of these posts in this thread and I'm truly at a loss, everyone pretending they understand how this cat shit works but I guarantee you, if left alone in this house they'll figure it out either way they know this sign better than anyone here ever will and living in the same home they will learn, namely the little one and it's important to get your shit rocked as a young animal. That's how they learn lmao


CryptographerOk5546

I’m sure the cat didn’t hurt the kitten at all but just saying those bunny kicks hurt like hell.
