Years of research and scientific study went into developing this method of capture. Haha. Well done
I really thought there was going to some trick or special equipment. Nope, just toss a coat on it
Towels work on regular housecats.
Never forget your towel, you never know when you might need it!
Hitchhikers Guide never fails
"oh no...not again"
You hoopy frood, you
I was going to upvote your comment, but it was at 42.
You wanna get high?
And also for injured wildlife. Not a bad idea to have one in the car.
And are one of the best bird-wrangling tools out there!
Hay work on me, too. Dude in my neighborhood throws one at me EVERY SINGLE DAY and I just CANT STOP JUMPING INTO IT!!!
Works on mice too. I've managed to catch some mice by just tossing a towel.
Why do you think the cat such hate in it’s eyes?
“Every fucking time I keep falling for the “matador with a North Face” trick!”
They coulda just set a box out there, it would have climbed in
Haha right. If it fits it sits
Result: yeet a blanket over the kitty
He watched Borat capture Pamela and a light went off in his head...
Ferocious, but I still want to cuddle it!
If you truthfully need to cuddle it the Norwegian forest cat breed is similar but tame
I used to have one, actually. The sweetest cat ever!
Can confirm!! wedgies are the sweetest kitties !!
I just had a cuddle with a 29lb Maine Coon. The only thing he’s ferocious about is naps though, so it wasn’t exactly the same.
I've got a 30lb cat I call a Maine Coon, but that's just because his mom was an outdoor cat and he's massive, with paws that fill the palm of my hand. For all I know his dad was a bear or a raccoon. I like to call him my majestic raccoonbearcat
Please tell me you have small hands, that’s a big fucking paw print if not
I’m a lady but my hands aren’t particularly small. I’ll see if I can get a pic to imgur to show off
I looked at my hands and I was like “they have a mountain lion”
!remindme 1 week
It’s true. I was going to name mine Jacks until I saw his paws. Now his name is Jacks Bear. The paws are HUGE.
Yes mine greets me at the door, fetches, and knows a handful of commands. They’re so dog-like. He’d also rather sleep on a pile of dirty clothes so sometimes I have to force him to be a cat and snuggle.
Maine coons are awesome! Giant puddles of purring and snuggles.
It has such a warm, fluffy looking coat.
Weird....It had almost HUMAN like eyes....
It's the round pupil, an unusual feature of the Pallas' cat that is more common in big cats.
That's exactly what caught my attention. The round pupils!!
Same, the coat was cool, but I had to pause at the eyes
Behold the murder pillow
I WILL KILL YOU ALL!!
I WILL RIP YOUR HEADS OFF!!
That’s clearly what that look was.
However, the execution lacked the intend.
At the end when the guy had the radio attenae, I legit thought the cat was gonna ambush him from behind and wreak bloody revenge
Lol! I thought the look said " I will end you, your mom, your entire bloodline will END!"
Is that guy really fast or is the cat really slow?
It looks like something is wrong with its back legs. That gait in the beginning and even during the run doesn't seem right. I'm not a Pallas cat expert (god what a dream niche though), but it doesn't look like healthy cat movement. So I think it might be slower than normal, although to be fair, I've caught my cat who had run out of my house at a pretty high speed, and I'm not a sprinter.
Cats are just not endurance animals, idk how long they were chasing it but after 5 minutes or so anything feline will get tired
I...guess I'm a cat then?
I mean, if only going by endurance running...
No animal has better stamina than humans.
[No, really](https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg23231031-300-humans-are-better-endurance-runners-than-any-other-animal/). There are indigenous people in Africa that still utilise [persistence hunting](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persistence_hunting). Turns out we're very good at running. Or well, we can be. I'm certainly not.
If you could get that memo to my body, you'd be very welcome.
I gonna kill you human
It's ironic, this cat looks like it just left Burlington coat factory with an ill-fitting winter coat, only the be caught by a coat itself
Looks like Tai Lung.
I am literally watching this movie right now!
Poor scared chubby baby
You just know that cat has memorised all of their faces
Kinda like my cat when he needed ear medication.
I was thinking the same thing... My cat hate médications, she's in poor health and often sick, I have scars on my hands and arms.
Have a friend help you administer it while you bite their scruff
From [this video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_LGaK3oxIk&list=PLWjbjc8N0t-AGw2h7TbXaAGE-JTcNHRKS&index=27) apparently
I find the music extremely appealing, for some reason.
Me too. It’s some kind of traditional folk music with throat-singing. Maybe Mongolian, since the Pallas cat’s range looks like it covers a lot of southern Asia... and that’s really the only throat singing I’ve heard of.
If you want a heavier version of this look up "The Hu" they are great
love that part too
Looks like he’s limping? Did they try to help him or are they just putting a tracking chip on him?
Why do they keep letting it run away only to catch it and let it go again. Just take it home and call it a day
Had to make it late for something
good sportsmanship, catch and release. ;3
Awwww... who's so mad? Who's such mad kitty?
If I saw that I would immediately want to kiss the cat on their head
**G R O M P Y**
(☝˘▾˘) If you put a stetson on it, it becomes a Jack Palance cat.
Why did they need to catch it though?
They put a gps collar on it, this video is about Daurian Nature Reserve in Russia.
I want to know this too
Somebody please answer this, not knowing is killing me.
It’s so weird seeing a cat with round eyes
Eyes are not cat eyes
They're Pallas cat eyes
Edit: You guys are actually idiots, I’m honestly shocked that so many of you couldn’t piece together that I wasn’t being serious.
Edit: [Here](https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE2A771BBA7773B62) is a link to a full critical thinking course you guys can watch online for free. If you thought this post was serious I implore you give it a watch.
28 idiots and counting, gotta love it. Lets see if we can hit 30 guys! Everybody smash that dislike button if you didn’t get the joke!!!
Ayyeee we hit 30, ill release a 40 downvote special if you guys can get us there in the next 24 hours!
Thats a good source
They're literally inside a living Pallas cat's head.
Yea I know... thats the joke. I really didn’t think I’d have to explain this.
Dude, if you haven't yet learned that a) it's really hard to tell someone's tone of voice on the internet (that's why we do things like put /s when we're being sarcastic or snarky), and b) there are legit people who will go around dropping 'source?' on literally everything including shit that's easily google-able, then I guess, welcome to the internet. It's shit and social media was a mistake. In compassion to your noob status, I will take away my downvote.
I dunno. I don’t buy it. Source?
I took back my pity upvote for that last paragraph. You're a dildo and I award you -1 point
I commented with a goofy source since I knew you were joking, guess you are a victim of Poe's law.. I recommend the /s-tag to let people know that you're joking since irony is very hard to understand in written form
(ps. you have my upvote at least :D )
Lmao thanks, you nailed the lay up. I was hoping some one would take up my assist. And I would normally put an /s tag but I felt this was so obvious given you know... its literally a comment on a video of the cat, that I can’t imagine the kind of person that assumes that its a serious request.
Well, either an idiot, or the kind of jaded person who has spent so much time on the internet seeing people comment source on obvious stuff that they assumed it was serious. I thought you were joking, but I would not call someone an idiot for thinking you were serious. It's pretty common here on internet dot com.
Imagine having Reddit long enough to gain 200,000 karma just to be a toxic shit stained onion, if you have to explain that something is a joke it wasn’t a good joke.
I don’t have to imagine
Rifts and lions don't have slit pupils. They are cats.
Aren't vertical pupils for focusing through eye level grass? With less grass maybe they evolved without them
Did they spend all of their cardboard box budget on replacing the shredded coats?
Lol I love that little stare down they have for a moment
And why exactly are we catching this cat?
Run, lil kitty! BE FREE!
What a gorgeous cat
Poor, scared, beautifully ferocious baby. That’s a seriously dangerous nose to boop 🥰
I was surprised to see their pupils are round and not vertical. Can anyone explain why? I know big cats have round pupils, but I thought smaller cats had had vertical slits.
“ I will murder you the first chance I get human”
"Yes! There's the signal. Wait. Why is it coming straight ba...."
Mother, I crave violence
Ty now I can get a free cat
Shouldve just put out a cardboard box.
They have round pupils? Interesting
That cat was definitely pist!
This reminds me of the "how to catch a joey" video
Chonky and mad
They look like stray cat at size but they have round pupil which is nice.
"Vitaly, get the cat!"
When I need to give my cat his medication
Just throw a blanket on him
Kitty look like it wanna cuddle
Nice kitty- BOOP!
Just another normal day in Russia (Russian license plate in the very end of the video) r/normaldayinrussia 😊
So you chase it until you're close and then yeet a coat onto it?
Just put a box out!
Me every time my cat needs to go to the vet...
Can they be domesticated? Do they make good pets?
Anyone know why it's pupils aren't narrow slits?
PALLAS CAT IS NOT PLEASED.
the content I need today
Why don’t they just use a slice of cheese?
Never seen a cat with small round irises
"Unhand me! I am fearsome!"
That is just how i catch my cats to put them in their boxes to take them to the vet. Nothing new. Actually, one of my cats fight more.

Effective and only way
step 1 : run
step 2 : get caught
step 3 : accept your fate
step 4 : run
This is sad. Why are they catching it at all?
It looks like they gave it a tracker. It looks like a case of interfering with one, probably to help protect them all.
Scientific research to better the animals?
It’s really not sad - if anything it’s helping us understand how to minimize any impact on them & to better understand them
If you closely look its back feet has something wrong so they probibly did help and put some tracker on the animal.
It’s “near-threatened”, so they’re probably tagging it.
It's an understandable question! It's hard to see a majestic wild animal being aggressively held against their will. You shouldn't be being downvoted and talked down to for having a normal human reaction. Reddit can be a conceited and selfish place to learn these days. This is likely a scientific team implanting a tracker to check this particular animal's movements to further aid science in the complete understanding of these animals which, hopefully, will aid in the protection of the species as a whole.
This is such a compassionate response; thank you
Or, hear me out, they actually didn't know. Don't need to be conceited or degrading just cause you presume others know the same information that you do.
I think he loves it
This is neat and all, but what was the point of it?
You know damn well the first chance that cat gets it’s gonna knock every si glee thing off the counter out pure spite
This works great for feral kittens, too.
Make sure to squish it
my only question is how hard, had me concerned for a hot sec-
Why though? What did they do to it? Or was this just a non-consensual cuddle sesh?
They should stop calling these things 'cat'. It is more than that.
I heard they have stubby ass legs and can’t really run fast… thanks evolution
So it has chosen death.
The cat went full spartan before getting caught
He needs scritchies stat!!
Apparently that is a Pallas cat
What was that device with the Yagi type antenna?
absolutely mugged it off
I didn't knew that the older sister of the white wings had a cat. s/
if you go to 25 seconds in you will see one actually running
If this video had sound you would have heard the cat saying “FUCK YOU! FUCK YOU ALL! I'M GONNA SHIT IN YOUR BED WHEN YOU SLEEP!"
Interesting it has round pupils.
WHY ARE ITS PUPILS CIRCLES AND WHY IS THAT MESSING WITH ME SO MUCH RIGHT NOW?
It’s just because they’re contracted because it’s freaking the fuck out
I'm getting the same vibes as from the cat bus in My Neighbor Totoro.
…come back here you!!!…
What that's a wicked cute cat to bad there not domestic so cool though.
He *angery* and he *chonk*
It has round pupils 👀
This is how we catch our neighborhood stray when it has a tick.
when they're holding him down you can practically hear him screaming "REVENGE! REVENGEEE!!"
Cue the GTA “wasted” screen when he throws the jacket lmao
I like how the cat jumps a the coat like "Come on motherfucker, you wanna dance?!" to "Oh shit, I give up!"
Uuuh, is fat animals a new meme genre? Nice
