Penelope

Penelope

deterministic_lynx

I tried it with my cat. He actually pushed away with his hind legs...


crosstrackerror

That cat’s name? Albert Einstein


deterministic_lynx

... a little. He just opened the f*cling door to get himself into the hallway ..


mechanicalcontrols

That moment when your house has been settling for 70 years so none of the doors latch easily so your cat just bulldozes them open as he pleases. Source: story of my life.


GoingWhale

The bathroom door in my house has trouble latching, my cat is strong and needy. It's not a good combination.


mechanicalcontrols

My people tell the same story.


SugarWraith08

We put a door up in our trailer hallway to cut on energy costs and our cat has made it his mission to discover what's behind door #1. The rest of the house, buddy. The rest of the house.


l1madrama

But next time it might be different!


SugarWraith08

We know that. He hasn't gotten the memo lol or hasn't read it yet.


Fanboy0550

I did with our three cats, one of them pushed away with hind legs, the other used front legs, and the last one used his paws after his nose touched the wall.

dcdancingqueen

I laughed so hard at all of these! 😂


wanderdugg

With cats it is really hard to distinguish between unintelligent and just not giving a F.


Ok_Zucchini3148

Cos they’ll all plot their revenge anyway when it suits them - like 2am or when you’re not home…


demon_fae

Maybe Penelope just trusts her humans not to slam her face first into a wall for no reason?


InsertCleverNickHere

I think you're right, but I still can't stop laughing at Penelope just passively letting herself get smushed into the wall.


DyleanCuisine

"Human, i trust you with my life." ^*Squish*


roloiii

*And they became best friends*


5am5ep1ol

But didn't she give the other two cats a much better opportunity to actually stop themselves? The other two cats had their paws out straighter, and she almost placed them paws-first because she was holding them closer under the armpits. Penelope had her arms down because she was being held differeht, and also was given far less time to react. She literally rearranges the cats to place their paws on there. She pushes them up then lays their paws on there. Penelope she literally angled her face into the wall. I just watched it again.


demon_fae

I saw that, too. Penelope’s trust is definitely misplaced…


fucktooshifty

*earlier that day* I don't care for Penelope


aprofessionalfuckup

I love all my cats


TheMadPugly

I love all [not you] my cats


miltonwadd

Penelope was not prepared for this betrayal.


maggie081670

Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal


queenlizbef

Yes this is what I came to say!


poptart_divination

It’s this. I tried this with my two cats. The trusting one didn’t stop himself, but the other one managed to get all four paws on the wall to stop him from hitting it.


world_persona

I tried this with my two cats and I really think it's not so much an intelligence but a trust thing. Neither kitty tried to fight the wall, they just let me gently smoosh them. Both acted like I betrayed them utterly. I give them kisses and hugs as apologies

[Squish that cat](https://youtu.be/5jKZ9KGtee0)


PikaPerfect

i watched that video for the first time a few years ago, and last year i had to give one of my cats ear drops and had to give the other one pills, both times i referenced that video and squished them, and it actually made it so much easier


Phartidandshidded

What does squishing do? Calm them?


TheRealTron

Yes, in my experience if a cat doesn't feel like it can get away it just gives up on life.


Phartidandshidded

I wonder if it feels nice to be squished


TheRealTron

I dunno I haven't been hugged in years


chrisseren1988

*HUG*


listenyall

A legit game changer for me in terms of claw clipping


Mr_Bankey

I don’t even know how to feel about what I just watched


EndGame410

JUST SQUISH THE CAT BRO


Quiznak_Sandwich

You should feel the need to squish that cat.


atridir

Naw... if they don’t they’re just really trusting.


gogomango01

Penelope is my spirit animal while I drive.


fiendfyre7358

Hold up


TheGalaxyPirate

Just get an oovoo javer man.


Tobias---Funke

Penelope has too much trust!


Saltycook

I love that the cats are all named like Dickensian urchins


MudaSpinnySkirt

either fancy names or food like my cat, Mayonaise


killshock_x

I named my cat Reuben


panickedthumb

Both a fancy name and a food. Bonus


censorkip

my cat was named Concrete


_misstntx

I like inanimate object names. Like my boy, Shotgun


MudaSpinnySkirt

add penny to that, Shotgun Penny is a dank ass name for a cat lol


[deleted]

[удалено]


LittleSisAdmin

Um? Shouldn't that be "Dank-ass name?" Asking for a friend.


GuiltyStimPak

So like [Alphonse Winterbottom?](https://imgur.com/gallery/9iVQcQv)


Traxton1

I think this could be a vision issue too. I know my kitty doesn’t see things in front of her very well, unless they’re moving.


lilith_marleen

Exactly! I’m kinda disappointed I had to scroll down so far to see this comment. One of the ways vets like to assess vision impairments in cats (at least in my country) is picking them up and slowly moving them closer to a table top. The idea is if the cat reaches for the table surface with their front paws, they can see it. If not, they likely have a vision impairment and need further analysis.


OneSmallSparrow

Yes, came here hoping someone would point that out. Poor Penelope might just have awful eyesight. Cats can go blind and their owners not notice until they rearrange the furniture. The owners, not the cats.


Traxton1

Your cat has never tried to rearrange your furniture? Lucky.


OneSmallSparrow

That’s more the dog’s hobby


Cod_rules

They've tried rearrange the shape of most 9f my glasses, but not the furniture


Sad_Gay_Pepe

Penelope is trying okay?


astartbselect

https://imgur.com/a/HbjQUv7 Sigh. My wife tried with our…special boy


JuneKat87

Lmao. I literally just watched that loop for a solid minute and a half laughing. Thanks!


Likaiar

What's wrong with your human


Cheef_queef

I give my cat a 5, took a few tries before he stopped himself


LikeDiscoSuperFlyyy

I tried 5 times and just gave up. My poor empty headed boy.


InsertCleverNickHere

Now I'm laughing that people are picking up their cats and smushing them into walls.


Darkxrainx

We tried and all three of ours smushed their faces. I think it has more to do with trust than intelligence.


mycecelia

I’ve watched this 10 times and I still can’t get enough 😂😂😂


CynMariaS

I have a Penelope too...


ISwearImAnonymous

Penelope trusted you the most


werosmys

My cats name is penelope and I suddenly feel offended on her behalf


[deleted]

I’m laughing so hard and thinking about which of my cats would also be Penelope


InsertCleverNickHere

Ngl, I am totally doing this to my cats tonight. I suspect I have a Pip and a Penelope.


[deleted]

Too funny. I kinda want to try it too lol


TurtlesMum

Penelope's like a crash test dummy in slo-mo XD


2greeneyes

She trusted you not to hurt her???


mentally_ill_virgo

Ember is my name! :D


jerekdeter626

Were your parents Danny phantom fans?


mentally_ill_virgo

No lol, I picked it myself bc I thought i liked it :)


jerekdeter626

Oh I see. Good choice!


mentally_ill_virgo

Thanks 💖

Just tried it! She pushed away with all 4 legs....and growled after

Peen-alope. You are a yemnyst?

I've been completely unable to pronounce Penelope any other way since that damned movie came out.

Tested this with my cats. Leo got it pretty much right away and then got mad at me for trying this. Ginger didn’t really get it and wouldn’t straighten out her paws. At least she’s not as dumb as Penelope.

I needed this today, thank you!

Just tested this with my two cats. Can confirm that they are as smart as slugs eating salt.


orangexflamingo

It's funny because my cats name is Penelope.


Leviathan098

Penelope squishe


Butterbean-queen

That was funny. You should cross post to r/unexpected. I definitely didn’t see that coming.

I held my dog up to a wall and she squiggled around and put her back to the wall

DeadVoxelx

The last cat made me laugh way too loud for 1:00am lol


anushy7

Just tried on my cat she is definitely a Penelope with a lot more perplexed look 😹


Euphorbium

More like a test to see how much your cat does not trust you.

My year old Maine coon already has trust issues. I fear losing an eye if I try this.


livelyfire

Um, no one is going to mention that the human held the first 2 cats in a way that their paws were straight in front of them, and when they held Penelope, she was hunched over so her paws weren’t straight in front of her?
