ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!

PSA: put down your coffee before pressing play.
This is not funny, and the guy holding the camera should be ashamed of himself, letting his/her cat get attacked like that…he he he
I know! I’m totally appalled that the owner should abuse his cat like this. I mean, it’s one thing to teach a beloved pet a lesson, but to let it learn the hard way like this is CRUUUUEEEEELLLLL. Now that cat has PTFD (Post Traumatic Fish Disorder) and will likely need counselling.
You can just feel the cat thinking at the end: If you put that on youtube I’ll piss on your toothbrush, hairless one.
That’s no fish it’s a honey badger in a suit.
That’s way too small a tank for any size oscar. The old “inch of fish per gallon of water” rule is simply false.
Absolutely right – the tiny dimensions of its tank are completely wrong for a fish this size. It’s like keeping a Great Dane in a caravan.
Classic Oscar tank – purchased when he was cute and yappy, and they size of a small goldfish. 6 months later and he’s 10 inches of angry with no friends left in the tank…
Even more funny if it’s a piranha. (inb4 irresponsible owner)
Some days you get lunch, some days your lunch gets you …
My favorite part is how the cat looks at the person filming with a “What the hell was that?” look at the end.
I inherited an enormous (100 gallon +) aquarium from the previous tenants of an apartment I moved into years ago. Not having a lot of time to dedicate to an aquarium at the time, I purchased one fish and a bunch of plants. It was a medium-sized immature oscar. Years later when I moved out of state he was around 15 inches long and would bash himself against the side of the tank every time anyone walked past. Very aggressive fish. I donated him to a local pet store when I moved out. I’m curious what became of him. I don’t think he would have done well in a tank with other fish. He was like Charles Bronson.
You don’t seem to understand. I’m not locked in here with you. You’re locked in here with *ME*!
…and the fish wins by a nose!
Memo to Animal Planet: Change Shark Week to Oscar Week.
THE HUNTER…HAS BECOME…THE HUNTED. *throw in an inception bwahhhm for good measure*
I had an Oscar named “Oscar”… original, I know. So Oscar was around 14 inches long and always hungry. Whenever I had to reach into the 130 gallon tank (cleaning, etc) I had to watch Oscar. He would eye the activity closely. And if I didn’t notice, he would slowly work around to behind my arm. Then he would strike! My arm would be extracted at a high rate of speed and water sprayed about. Always thrilling.
Kitteh was having a drink – I bet his tongue looked like nom noms ^_^
Looks like kitty’s facial fur may have been touching the water’s surface. Which means food floating on the surface! Love the cat’s “did you SEE that?” look at the end!
