Patient Cat Plays the Funniest Homemade Game (Don’t Try This at Home!)


Who remembers playing that classic 1970s game, Whack-a-Mole? That’s what’s going on here–but in this case, it’s a cat who’s using his paw to hit his human’s fingers. Again and again, the cat tries to pounce on those nimble fingers, all the while looking totally confused and mildly amused (or annoyed, we aren’t sure).

Isn’t the clip oddly mesmerizing? We have to admit, creating this game from a cardboard box is pretty genius, but that doesn’t mean we recommend you try it at home with your own pet. After all, as one commenter on Imgur put it, “It’s all fun and games ’til someone gets a few claws hooked into their cuticle.” Yup, our thoughts exactly!
