A cat leaning over the edge of a dock barely escaped with its life as a fish leaped out of the water and tried to snatch it for a quick meal.
The cat was admiring, if not salivating over, a number of goldfish swimming just below the surface of the water. The cat would move its paws towards the water in a feeble attempt to snag one of the fish for itself. It couldn’t even reach the surface.
So far, so good. The episode was just another example of normal feline instincts because cats usually enjoy catching and consuming fish.
Then, Darwin pulled into reverse.
While the cat was pawing away at potential meals, a predatory fish took note of the activity above the surface and jumped out of the water, snatching its jaws at the now helpless kitty.
Fear not, though, cat lovers (and who on the Internet doesn’t love cats?). The whole thing was caught on tape and slow motion video appears to show the cat, riddled with a bad case of karma and a shot to its self-esteem, scurrying away safely.
It might have been injured by the ordeal, but it doesn’t appear to have been eaten.
So it looks like curiosity did not kill the cat. This time.
There were two kittens there, and the one that ran away was not the kitten that was grabbed by the fish. Someone please clear up what happened to the kitten that was dragged into he water.
Exactly! Did the writer not watch the video?
I agree with above, I didn’t see the cat that was closer to the water get away. I think this article needs to be rewritten or hear from the person who shot the video. Did one cat get eaten? it looks that way to me
I agree. Even the name of video itself says the cat gets dragged underwater. How can anyone publishing this video and commenting on it not notice that and the fact that only on kitten was left. It’s a horrible video.
Look more closely and you see the cat escaping out of the frame.
I had to watch it several times but I see now that both kitties got away. On the slo mo, look at left lower portion of the screen–don’t watch the fish. The bottom cat is moving so fast he’s just a flash on the screen even in slow motion.
Both cats got away. I am not sure what video you are watching. What the slo-mo part again and you will see it escape.
No, you can see that they both got away . Please look closely to when they both run and look at the legs approx. at 0:23
Fake I used my editing software and this is fake at the frame the fish jumped up to get the cat the next frame the fish is not there but cat is next frame fish is back and frame after that gone. Next frame fish in water,,
actually if you slow it down youcan see the darker gray one got away first..then the lighter one that was on his back ran away after…the two grays kind of merge.. but if you pause it you can see they both got away
Pause the video at 23 seconds. They both got away.
Watch the video closely. The kitten on the bottom backs up under the one on top of him. He didn’t go into the wate
Both got away. the cat that was leaning in water was the first to run , you can hardly see because the fish is blocking the view.
no the cat is fine,replay it slowly both cats moved in the same direction. you can tell cause the cat 3 front legs and 2 chests.
please watch video over…and over… and over again. both cats made it away.
EVER HAD PORKCHOPS?
Actually, I watched the video and the second cat was/is the mother of the kitten. When the fish, probably a pike, falls back into the water you can see the kitten being dragged away by mom; but, because mom was backing away when the fish jumped, you really have to look close to see the kitten.
I stopped the video at .22 … the grey kitty ran the fastest, too fast for the video and is basically just a blur.
mo mo’s this is why you can’t get anybody to agree on anything, beause people are seeing what they want to see!the vid clearly shows two cats and then shows two cats after the fish….WOW!
You can see 2 cats on the slow motion end part.
There is something SICK and MESSED UP about “Yahoo” haven’t you noticed how often they have f-ed up stories that make you sad about cats ? They do the same with dog stories but I think a little less often. I think “Yahoo” and the pinheads who decide things have twisted minds— why put so many F-ED UP stories online ? And, the news used to be separated by topic. At some point not that long ago, they just started throwing everything up with no categories. They’re stupid –
Ummmm….Pretty sure the fish ATE or drowned the kitten….Did the writer not watch the video???? 1 did run away, the other was in the pond…
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT!! IT LOOKS LIKE THE FISH GOT THE KITTEN!!!
The kitten did NOT get away!!!! Did it survive, tho’?????
Yes it did get away.
Man so many people are quick to react to a video without actually reviewing the footage. Pause the video at the 23 second mark and you will see the kittens back foot while the rest of him/her is out of frame.
If you look really closely, you see the back leg of the kitten that was attacked moving out of the edge of the frame, followed by the striped kitten. He got away. Phew! It was close though!
Colleen, much to your dismay I’m sure the cat did not get away, watch the video again…The kats tail is hanging from the fish mouth as it whips into the water, only one cat got away
For Bo: the cat did get out of the way. If you look at it frame by frame, what you saw “hanging from the fish’s mouth” is actually one of the fins.
A new definition to the term Catfish.
The YouTube description says the cat was “dragged underwater”… :(
I’ve rewatched until my brain hurts. I think the cat fell in (not attacked though). Unless the coy were unusually viscous, the cat should have been fine. What a way for the writer to get comments though. I did also notice the tag for the video stating that the cat got dragged into the water. Apparently the poster thought the cat fell in too.
Wow, you commentators are seriously delusional. The cat DIDN’T GET EATEN!!! Watch the slow motion at the very end. The cat clearly takes off to the left! You people are blind!!
I know, right? It’s pretty obvious that both cats got away.
The slow-mo cam shoes the cat got away. Pay attention in between the 22 and 23 second mark and you can see the back leg of the first cat that got away.
I did as you suggested. Look at still frames from 21 on. This is when the fish is jumping out of the water. The black cat is actually under this coy at this point. Looking at each still frame through 23 sec, at no point do a see the black cat going to the left. I do see the shadow of the grey cat going to the left. In the stills at 22 seconds, you can see what appears to be a splash in the water no caused by the fish. But fear not, as another commenter pointed out, coy’s really wouldn’t eat the cat. And if he did fall in, cats can swim as much as they hate to and should have been able to make it out.
Desiree, you must have really bad eyesight…
The cat got away, but it was a koi that leaped up, they’ve small mouth and won’t be able to eat the cat in any case. The one filming the whole thing would be able to grab it out of the water if it fell in.
that was no koi but a snakehead more likely
It isn’t a snakehead, it’s an Asian arowana
It looks to me like it did get away as there are two cats running at the end. It looks like he flew over the other cat. I so hope I am right.
I agree with a lot of the posts here… The kitten that was on top of the other one was able to run off (probably pushing himself off the other kitten) and the kitten underneath fell in! I thought the video was going to show the kitten that fell in climbing out… Hopefully the person shooting this video saved that kitten because it didn’t look like it “escaped”.
yup i think so too
Looks like all of you need glasses- both cats got away.
CHUCKY DDDDD, looks like you need glasses friend! Re watch the video, the cat gets grabbed, his tail is flailing from the fish mouth as he goes into water, definitely only one cat getting away
DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO. THE CAT APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN KILLED BY THE FISH, UNLESS SOMEHOW THE VIDEOGRAPHER MANAGED TO RESCUE IT. THE AUTHOR OF THIS ARTICLE IS SICK.
This is morbid!! I agree with every other comment. I rewatched it several times, hoping to see the black cat scurry off. I didn’t get that. If you look closely at the fish as it’s going back into the water, it looks like something blurry and large is going down with it. I hope the writer gets to the bottom of this and gets the story straight. This looks like someones kittens. Maybe the owner (assuming video taker) could clear this up. I would have to have jumped in to save the cat!!
The cats were both gray.
Certainley looked like one of them did not get away!! Who shot this video… please comment on what happened to the kitten that got pulled into the water!!! Hopefully he ate the fish that attacked him!!!!!!!!!!!
I didn’t see the kitty get away! I am horrified! What happened to the kitty? WTH is wrong with this writer?
For all those worried that the kitten actually did get eaten, I used the pause/play button to advance frame by frame very slowly and at :23 in you can see the hind leg and foot of the “victim” kitten and the whole second kitten. Yay – he did get away!!
are you people blind? it clearly shows both cats getting away. you can see two bodies. pause it. you see legs and then the other kitten on the right.
looks like two sets of paws still visible on concrete as fish retreats to water. I think the cat is just out of the shot to the left.
Just to add… the video is titled: Kitten gets dragged by Fish into Pond/Huge fish drags cat underwater…
It clearly shows BOTH cats running away! Geez!
They both made it to safety. Just need to watch the video, at the end, closely
If you watch frame by frame, you can see that both of the cats escaped. It was just so fast that it’s hard for the human eye to catch.
We can only hope the kitten was ate by the fish.
That is terrible.
We can only hope that YOU get “ate” by a fish.
You suck! I hope you get eaten by a great white one day.
y the kitten gets away u see it on the slow mo just in front of other kitten but u only see the butt end of kitten for a second b4 hess out of the shot
In the video i watched the cat did get away. You can see it just briefly in front of the other one if look close
Calm down everybody!
These are common pond Koi fish and they are not predators. They do not eat meat and they have no teeth. The fish was probably just frisky and jumped out of the water because it was excited. They have been known to jump out of their pond and land outside the water.
The fish that jumped was not a koi.
First the fish are not Goldfish, they are Japanese Koi fish and both cats got away. The cat on top was Grabbing the bottom cat to safety
The fish that attack was not a koi. It is an Asian Arowana.
cool footage…. the other cat/kitten eased his way back to try to hump the other cat then whap! the fish snatches or rather knocks away the other kitten you can see it flips upside down (split second) and back to left of concrete while the humpless cat scattered away. that’s a cool fish why doesn’t it eat the other fishes if it’s predatory? maybe sick of seafood? or just jumping up to ward off the cats to protect the other fishes!
I thought I was the only one who knew what the cat on top was doing. Commenter above you actually thinks the cat on top was pulling the other cat to safety…nope, he was simply trying to get him some and was rudely interrupted by the koi fish…LMAO.
Erm, both cats got away. You can clearly see the bottom cat’s hindquarters moving out of shot while the striped cat is still standing there wondering what happened.
If you go frame by frame, you can actually see that the fish completely missed the bottom cat because it hit the dock first (probably because fish eyes aren’t really evolved to see through the refraction of light that happens right at the surface.)
They were Coy fish, not gold fish. Daaaa
same thing, same fish
It was an Asian Arowana.
I Looked closely and found the only thing
the cat left behind was its Sh!t.
This comment made me laugh.
The fish could not have snatched the cat, the head was too small for its jaws to open wide enough instead it scared both kittens ah scampered away.
Sorry but I think that kitten is now digesting in that fishes gut, looked to me like it got nail an didn’t get away
It looks like he’s eaten, but at 0:23 you see the hind left leg of the kitten that was almost eaten. He just moved incredibly fast.
0.22 sec hind legs of the black cat gets owned flipped on its side… no casualties just cat’s self esteem.
For the ones who think one of the kittens were eaten, if you pause and unpause when the fish jumps up, there are a couple of frames where you see one kitten more to the right, and the back foot and leg of the second exiting the frame to the upper left. Fishes body blocked the view of one of the kittens getting away. Both kittens got away.
Are you all blind? The cat GOT AWAY! Open your eyes.
The (Coy) fish jumped at the cat, but the cat did not get dragged into the water, both cats can be seen running away. Watch it in slo-mo…
both kittens were safe. the fish is not large enough to swallow the kitten whole. the brown part that seems to fall into the water is the belly of the fish. the brown kitten was fast enough that the frame by frame did not catch it move. You can however catch just a bit of him in the left edge of the screen escaping as the fish falls back into the water.
A variation on the theme. I was outside by the pool when an owl swooped in, silently, and tried to snag our 10 pound cat named itty bitty for a meal. Itty fell into the pool and escaped, but very unhappy about getting wet.
The fish appears to be going for the second cat on top. The fish doesn’t have a cat in it’s mouth when it goes back into the water. The cat on the bottom escaped but it was so fast that the video frame showing the escape is missing.
I have watched this video several times and it is NOT obvious the second cat gets out of the water. What IS obvious is the cat is NOT dragged into the water by the fish, it simply falls in under the fish. I am more than willing to believe the cat jumps out of the water seconds later but it is NOT shown in the video. What some people are seeing is the first cat, the lighter colored cat, running back.
People who are freaking out – BOTH cats got away. Watch the lower left corner during the slow-mo very carefully at the 22 second mark. You’ll see the cat with the scarf fully in the frame and the back side of the other cat as it runs to the left.
That was no koi that went for the kitten. That was a large northern pike or possibly a muskie.
first off, I assure you that both cats escaped unscathed. And secondly the fish that attacked the cats was most likely an Arowana or Asian Green Arowana. Several extant species are indigenous to South America, one from Africa, several from Asia, and two from Australia. They are aggressive and extremely acrobatic, and can leap 6 feet out of the water to catch its prey. My sister had one in her 250 gallon fish tank that would jump and bite your finger if it was visible to the fish. They can grow up to 3 feet or better in captivity and are definitely carnivorous. As long as the Koi are large enough, these two species can coexist.
The cat was murdered and eaten. The fish was probably Korean.
Smelly caaaat smelly caaaat…ooohhh what are they feeding you!
That IS NOT A COY FISH…. IT IS AN ARAPAIMA AND THEY WILL EAT ANYTHING.
1st of all, the fish that came out of the water is not a Koi. That is clearly a fish with a long, wide mouth similar to that of a member of the pike family. Once you view the film frame by frame, you see a paw with a white “boot” on the deck that moves before the other cat moves out of the picture ie, cat got away!!!!
The cat was killed dead, then eaten. The fisk was likely Korean.
Now you know why cats have nine lives because of such luck.
A commission should be appointed to study this “single cat theory”. I thought I saw a small slpash of water on a nearby grassy lilly pad.
watch the youtube video the cat gets pulled in by the fish the title even says it who hires these people. that cat is now a catfish
Ok people I have the proof, both cats get away. if you look at the picture I captured off the video you can see the cat that was under the other cat jumping back to the left out of screen with the cat that was on top being pushed up. http://i58.tinypic.com/33or1wn.jpg
The kitty got away. I watched it numerous times and the coy leaps over top of the bottom cat, allowing it to get away. You can see in 0:23 a white sock foot fly out of frame just before the cat that was on top. Both were very lucky.
This looks like a pond that is in someone’s yard. I would question the owner who has fish that big and is allowing his kittens to roam around the edge of the pond like that AND film it. He knew what was going to happen. Does he film his newborn playing with his Boa Constrictor too to “see what happens”?
Cat did escape. The fish that attacked was an arowana. Not a koi or goldfish.
There are 2 cats that ran away. Jeez some people are retarded.
You all should learn to watch before you comment, it clearly showed in the slow down both cats cowered away, neither were brought into the water
Those are not goldfish. Those are Koi, or what I like to call “water pigs”. We used to have a couple of them, but gave them up because we couldn’t afford to feed them any more. They can get up to 3 feet long and weight a good 40 pounds.
ah its not hard to see that both cats run away and its not dragged into the water
Some of you people are going over this video like the Zabruder film. Calm down and get a little bit of perspective, it’s just a cat.
and what if it was a dog , would you feel the same way ? it’s just a dog ,no big deal right .
am I the only one who’s noticed that there seems to be a huge, gaping wound on the neck of the other (striped) cat? Or is that just poor picture quality. Not that it matters, but interesting.
The cat did escape the one behind him has a red collar on and if watch the slow mo you can see the last cat in the video doesn’t have a collar on.
First that’s not a coy. Looks like a Pike of some sort. Second that cat did not get away.
Not sure who to vote for on if the kitten got away, the real question is if fish enjoy kitten as much as kitten like fish for dinner?
Pause the video at 22 seconds and you’ll see the flash of the first cat under the head of the second cat
I’m a pro fishing guide, and when the fish falls back in the water his mouth was closed and empty, no cat, the blurr in the bottom left was the cat bolting away with his 8 lives left.
I now know I have to change bait in order to catch the big one…
Hope springs eternal in the hearts and eyes of cat lovers… BURP! Go full screen and click a single frame progression. Only the top cat leaves the dinner table.
Look in the lower left corner and you will notice a little brown cat turd.le
The cat was pulled away by it’s mother. you cannot see it clearly in this version.
To those who claim the kitten was killed.
Watch frame by frame AFTER the jump and count the legs as they move left.
The kitten on the bottom goes left THEN the kitten from the top.
There are CLEARLY more than 4 cat legs!
“Frame by frame, death by drowning”
– A. Belew
I was so concerned about this kitten that I watched the video at 20 times and looks like he got away. The kitten without the scarf is shown standing as the fish with nothing in it’s mouth is turning back into the water….I hope. Otherwise, shame on the person who posted the video.
who cares it was only a cat
A lot of people didn’t even notice the cat got away even after seeing the slow-mo, this is the speed/reflexes of cats everybody quite amazing.
The irony would have been perfect if it was a CATfisk.
As the fish is turning back toward the water, you can see two hind legs sticking out of the water and clearly not mistaken for any fish body part. After the fish reenters the water, the two hind legs are missing. The cat on top probably pushed off of the cat below it when frightened, causing it to fall into the water with the fish turning to catch it.
i wondered that myself—-i could not swear to it getting away—i lean towards what u say—funny no one else mentioned that at all—but pretty even on not sure whether the kitten makes it—also not so sure it is someones home pond
kittens got away, both of them. There’s even a slo mo…the one supposedly eaten quickly jumps left before the 2nd kitten. Its tail and back legs are barely visible, but still gets away. Cats man, their reflexes are equal to the speed of sound.
Seem “goldfish” is camouflage to lure a cat but cat did not notice and almost got eaten.
I need to find a fish like that to teach irresponsible owner to let cat running freely in neighbor for cat personal toilet or craving for wild birds.
The cat that was doing the pawing fell into the water along with the fish. It was fast, but pretty clear to me. It was clear that only one cat walked away.
That was great! Wonder if the fish could have actually taken all of it!!!
I had to watch it several times.
Both cats indeed do get away, it is just very hard to tell.
Why would anyone be outraged if the fish actually did eat the cat (which it did not). Pet cats kill other animals in their environments all the time. Carbon based life eats carbon based life. That’s a fact, the tears of crazy cat ladies notwithstanding.
Awesome! What kind of fish was that?
The fish was most certainly an Arowana or more precisely an Asian Green Arowana
ok, U say the cat got away. But what happened to the cat that ended up in the water withe fish? I did not see him come out. So tell the rest of the story.What happened to the cat that ended up in the water with the fish?
yes the cat got away …both kitties when fish jumped up backed up…when fish goes back in water you see this…the kitties are both just thinking what the heck ALMOST happened. Saw it clearly and thankful. If cat did fall in water I don’t think that fish could totally swallow a whole cat. pretty big kitty.
Anywho kitty was not hurt.
On the racing video’s, these punk’s in there 4 banger “hot rod’s” think they got fast car’s, muscle car’s there’re not!
“They are Not”.
lol…cat got eaten? Looks like a catfish at most…surely not big enough to eat a cat…it was no shark in a pond.
The people saying the cat was caught are seriously blind as hell. Both cats got away and the one cat was not even dragged into the water at all. If you can’t see this even with the slow motion then you need to have your eyes and head examined.
Video is a fake! Cat on the bottom doesn’t move until fish is fully out of the water. Cats have more quickness and agility than that. Its a fake.
wow when was this recorded? 10 years ago? video quality sucks! can’t see shit
This is textbook evidence why eyewitnesses are terrible. BOTH cats survive and its all there for your to see. They even provided the slow-motion for you to see it for yourself. What seems to be happening is some sort of cognitive dissonance due to reading the INCORRECT video title and then looking for proof of that title vs what your own eyes show you. Both cats got away and most of you should never testify in court to what you saw.
It’s pretty clear that both cats got away… It’s even clearer that the fish didn’t carry anything into the water with it. Glasses people… go get your eyes checked. lol
the cat did get away, you can barely see it. the camera is too slow to catch it clearly but the front cat is a lot faster than the second cat. look very closely at the left of the screen. you can see it barely by the time it escapes out of camera view. i thought he got eaten also. but look very carefully you can see his blurr go left….
Hate to break this to people but a tan blur plunges into the water before the fish goes back under. The fish is black. Therefore the cat went into the water. It’s probable that it survived but it did indeed go in.
Hate to break it to you, but either one cat grew 3 or for legs, or both cats never went into the water.
do you really think the fish ATE the cat? really? the video shows a flurry of cats scrambling after the fish jumped. even if the cat did get pulled down, small chance the fish will actually get the CAT down it’s throat. cmon..
that looks like water, not a kitten escaping. meh, its just a cat anyway.
in real-time it appears the cat went down with the fish. reviewing the slo-mo, it’s just interference caused by the water and no cat is in the fish’s mouth; that would have been really clear. People, let’s give cats some credit, they are top-notch hunters and we get the phrase “cat-like reflexes” from somewhere, don’t we?!
Both cats got away. If you look closely at the slow motion you can see the extra paws.
Am I the only one who noticed the male cat and his attempted rape on the female cat right before the fish struck? Do I see cat rape uproar? No… I see fish might have eaten poor kitty uproar.
Darwin? IN reverse? Darwin has nothing to do with what animals do, or not do. Evolution? Nonsense. Predators just doing what they always have done, eat to survive, just that simple, no more,no less.
I know. Yahoo writers always have to bring in “scientific theories” to push their agendas.
Tasted like chicken!
You can see both cats get away on the left side..like someone else said here,don’t watch the fish just the side during slo mo..you will see both cats.
They looked like Koi (related to goldfish) I don’t think they have teeth at least not in front. If someone did not grab the kitten it may have drowned.
Da dum… Da dum… Da Dum Da Dum Da Dum Da Dum!
Shark in the Koi Pond! Evolution Gone Haywire! Cat goes to pond… Fish in the pond… Fish Attacks Cat!
Fish: 1 Cat: 0 Winner: Fish
Hello, everyone – I am the owner of the pond, fish and kitten(s) in the video; yes, I am afraid that my kitten Carnitas was indeed snatched and quickly swallowed by the piscine predator as shown – it happened sofast, there was nothing we could do. I mean, who would ever think that fish liked eating pussy??
HORRRIBLE!!!! WE JUST SAW ONE KITTEN MURDER ANOTHER!!!! IT HELD THE OTHER KITTEN IN PLACE WHILE SIGNALING TO THE FISH TO POUNCE AND THEN BLOCKED ITS ESCAPE ROUTE.
KITTENS ARE MEAN, KITTENS ARE MEAN!!!!!
I love animals, but I really loathe cats & especially kittens. I wish they would’ve been eaten that would’ve made a great video. I laughed as I watched it, talk about suspense. Not long ago a van drove down our street collecting feral kittens & black cats Useless little vermin I guess I know what’s in store for them. Happy Halloween!!!
Get off the computer and seek help. You have issues.
Terrible story. Also, why does it appear that the other cat has a large wound on its neck?
God some people are sheep and just post without looking, the cat darted off frame, the fish did not catch anything and bring it into the water.
OK – the kitten didn’t get eaten. More disturbing is that the second kitten was trying to mount the fishing kitten, meaning both are not neutered and there will soon be more kittens.
Jesus people, even if the cat got dragged into the water, which it didn’t, its a freaking Koi… It couldn’t have consumed the cat if it tried. It was just defending itself.
you ppl are blind if you think that the cat was dragged into the water. you should put your glasses back [email protected]
Calm down people. THE CAT GOT AWAY. At 23 seconds of the slow motion you can see the white mitten paw of the escapee just under the second or top cat. You have to pause the frame at this exact spot. The escapee made a lighting, or even better, cat-like jump backward into and under the top cat. If you continue on thinking he got eaten go right ahead and be wrong. I don’t care and neither does the cat.
Everything’s fine !
It appears to me the cat was just being koi.
Too bad the cat didnt get the fish but am glad the cat got away!
Frame-by-frame it and you can see both kittens move back.
At first I thought the bottom one fell in the water, but you can see it moved back under the other one.
Either way, that fish couldn’t eat a kitten. Although it could drown one.
The bottom cat actually pushes the top cat back then dashes to the left. It looks as though it is just the one cat but it is gray
The bottom cat went into the water, if you freeze the action the brown under the fish, that’s the cat. He dead.
What kind of fish was it? A CAT FISH??? :) Couldn’t help myself.
i just hate these freaking damn 5 sec. videos. What the hell is the purpose of putting a partial video on to keep everyone in suspense. GET A LIFE or learn how to use the damn camera!!!
These are not goldfish… they are Koi. And no they were not trying to eat the cats. They are bottom feeders.
Stop arguing people. Its a koi pond, so its most probably not a predator fish but a giant bronze koi. Even if it is a silver arowana, cat that big wont fit in his mouth so its more likely defending his territory. The guy filming the video will surely scoop up the kitten if the kitten falls in the water.
Didn’t anybody notice the the horrible injury to the light gray kitten? It looks like a chunk of flesh was taken from his neck
the other kitten has fur missing from its neck, probably from a similar attack. the STAGED video was sadistic, knowing full well what potential danger was involved!
The author needs to study fishkeeping before deciding to write about predatory fish. First those are japanese carp and not goldfish. Second they are not predatory fish but opportunistic feeder, they will eat anything that will fit their mouth and swallow.
Brings a whole new meaning to “cat fishing”.
Read several comments and find it funny how people think they both got way because one didn’t. Look carefully at 22 and 23 sec mark and you will notice when fish jumps you see the body of the top cat on left with his head on the right side. The bottom cat got snatched and pulled down. This is how catfish kill their prey. They have no teeth but they use their powerful suction when they expand their mouth. They pull prey down until they drown and they gulp them up. Catfish have even been know to kill humans., though it’s minimal but has happened. I’m not surprised here.
just pause at 00:22 second and 00:23 u will see the cats feet right next to the 2nd cat…So, no!! it didn’t die!!
They both escaped. If you slow it down you can see here’s 2 little kittens running away. The closest one is a blur.
LOL that cat got eaten by a fish! food chain fo yo azzzzz…ya id lke to see it “scurrying” away lmao
The title in the youtube video says it all “Huge Fish Drags Cat Under Water in Japan”. I played it again in slow motion and noticed the first kitten fell in the pond. This person should have at least gone after it and saved the kitten. A terrible title to gain youtube hits and shock value.
Don’t stick your paw where it doesn’t belong.
Those were not goldfish, they were koi, and koi are omnivorous, which means they will eat pretty much anything. House cats never prey on animals that are bigger than themselves. This cat was simply investigating the motion in the pond. I wish the author had done a little research before posting this on the Internet. BTW: I had to download the video and watch it, frame by frame, in order to spot the white paw of the kitten that made it out alive. The funny part is that the video was titled “Huge fish drags cat underwater in Japan”. This is taking yellow journalism to its limits. Someone should be ashamed.
The one cat look like he is going to push the other one in. lol
Almost eaten by a fish, this is going to be a lifetime scandal that haunts the kitten forever, that’s brutal… …
I slowed it down and noted the cat’s colors and markings. Unfortunately, it looks like the first cat got taken off by the fish. :-(
If you look at the fish as it reenters the water you will see a brown streak enter with it. That is the cat that was on the bottom looking at the fish.
Gotta love the pop up ads show up to block the screen just as the fish jumps out.
It is just me or is anyone else surprised to find out that fish eats cats?
Watched the video several times (as I am sure everyone here has)and never saw the brownish kitten come out of the water. So yeah unless there is a longer video showing both kittens escape you have to assume the kitten met his/her demise.
Here kitty kitty…
that looked like jardini arowana. there tongue is a bony spin that hurts when they leap at you. and they leap 6ft out of the water.its an aggressive fish mine would fight with my turtle.
If you stop the video at exactly the 23rd second, you can see the foot of the “eaten” cat as it takes off. It wasn’t eaten.
I’m on the Internet and I don’t like cats.
if you pause it at :22 mark,you will see the first cat’s legs in front of the other. the cat did not get eaten lol
This article is a big FAIL for the writer, Brian Carey. There is NO evidence in this video that the first kitten escaped the fish. The kitten running off was the second kitten. People watching this video were expecting a happy ending due to the title that you wrote for your article and the article. Instead, we were horrified to see a kitten dragged very likely to its death. You need to do better Mr. Carey.
I watched it over and over and over again…even looked at a single frame at a time…and I saw the kitten go into the water. Only one ran away.
If you look real close to the cat on top of the one looking in the water you will see that it is injurged, it as a large portion of hair missing and it pink and red. I just hope someone caught those two and had them look at by at vet
The cat doesn’t get away. It is clearly knocked in the water and the second one gets away. What a cruel video. Someone watched this happen and filmed it for fun when the cat didn’t get away. What a bunch of barbaric a-holes in Japan.
I had to watch it a few times but you can see the cat just to the left of the screen in the slow motion shot.
So if the cute kitten ate the fish everyone would be saying “Oh, how cute!”, but if the fish ate the cat, then it is horrible. So I guess a cat is more precious than a fish? Personally, I think this is a fake, but the silly comments make it really funny.
You can see the second cat in the slow motion shot just to the left of the screen. I had to watch it several times but it’s there.
The kitten did not go into the water! People relax. It may appear that way because you can’t see the cat clearly escaping…..it is a blur. Cats can move faster than snakes can strike! It escapes to the left in a sideways blur!!!
The smaller kitty had a horrible wound on her neck,I don’t think she will make it!!
One cat down for sure…
That was nearly a CAT-ASTROPHE!
You can see both in the slow motion part get away. Had to watch it a few times to catch them.
I watched the video at still and slow motion. The kitten on top was very light gray/white and the bottom cat was medium gray with brownish/orange head color. The light gray cat got away but unfortunately the medium gray and light brownish/orange head color kitten got dragged under water. Very sad for cat lovers. :-(
the cat did NOT GET AWAY, any one who says so is nuts, the person who took video, needs to come forward and let us see photo of cat alive and well today. I did a stop and frame by frame, the cat got drug into water, DID IT SURVIVE?????
Way to go fish. One less lousy cat.
Looks like one kitty got drowned or even eaten by the fush. Only one kitty got away. I played the video over and over.
That cat was taken by a fish… No A doubt about that….How can people Have The Damn NERV and Film something like that!!
OMG! Are you all blind?1? Can’t you see that the cat ate that poor fish in one gulp? OMG!
Can we at least agree that watching a video within that small boxed frame is annoying? It is so not worthy of a cat …. or a kitten. I don’t think the fish cares.
Yeah, except that the front kitty fell in the water. Fish don’t eat cats. It was either playing, or thought someone had a morsel for it, like a piece of cracker, but the front cat got startled and fell in. I hope its owner helped him out, because even though cats can swim, this looked like a deep edge so he’d have no foothold to heave himself up.
First of all, it’s Koi not Goldfish and secondly what happened to the kitty snatched by fish?
The second kitty pulled a nasty “frat-style” prank on the first kitty!
It took me a while but if you can pause the video of the part that the pike goes up, you can see the grey legs of the 1st cat running towards the left then when the fish goes back the 2nd striped one goes running as well there for th e two cats are OK.
