thebunsone

Years of research and scientific study went into developing this method of capture. Haha. Well done


stfleming1

I really thought there was going to some trick or special equipment. Nope, just toss a coat on it


pearlsbeforedogs

Towels work on regular housecats.


win118ston

Never forget your towel, you never know when you might need it!

I was going to upvote your comment, but it was at 42.


I_M_The_Cheese

Respectable.


KorruptedFate

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!


gemstun

Hay work on me, too. Dude in my neighborhood throws one at me EVERY SINGLE DAY and I just CANT STOP JUMPING INTO IT!!!


I-ate-your-pony

Works on mice too. I've managed to catch some mice by just tossing a towel.


Melodic-Hunter2471

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!”


archetyp0

They coulda just set a box out there, it would have climbed in


thebunsone

Haha right. If it fits it sits


GreenDogWithGoggles

Result: yeet a blanket over the kitty


snakeman1961

He watched Borat capture Pamela and a light went off in his head...


MexicanYenta

Ferocious, but I still want to cuddle it!


wraith1221

If you truthfully need to cuddle it the Norwegian forest cat breed is similar but tame


MexicanYenta

I used to have one, actually. The sweetest cat ever!


Lavenderkushkiss

Can confirm!! wedgies are the sweetest kitties !!


Acceptable_Tourist_4

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.

damselindetech

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


iDomBMX

Please tell me you have small hands, that’s a big fucking paw print if not


damselindetech

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


iDomBMX

I looked at my hands and I was like “they have a mountain lion”


netsrak

!remindme 1 week


Acceptable_Tourist_4

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.


Acceptable_Tourist_4

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.


MexicanYenta

Maine coons are awesome! Giant puddles of purring and snuggles.


Koala5000

It has such a warm, fluffy looking coat.


SpearWeasel

Weird....It had almost HUMAN like eyes....


haysoos2

It's the round pupil, an unusual feature of the Pallas' cat that is more common in big cats.


Racchi2point0

That's exactly what caught my attention. The round pupils!!


RoboDae

Same, the coat was cool, but I had to pause at the eyes


Chrimpsy

Angery


Titboobweiner

So much


Meidara

Behold the murder pillow


Alexreddit103

I WILL KILL YOU ALL!! I WILL RIP YOUR HEADS OFF!! That’s clearly what that look was. However, the execution lacked the intend.


damselindetech

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


sqdot

Lol! I thought the look said " I will end you, your mom, your entire bloodline will END!"


ARecklessRunner

Is that guy really fast or is the cat really slow?


trafficwizard

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.


SwordTaster

Cats are just not endurance animals, idk how long they were chasing it but after 5 minutes or so anything feline will get tired


skyboundNbeond

I...guess I'm a cat then? I mean, if only going by endurance running...


Meior

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.


Tallinette

If you could get that memo to my body, you'd be very welcome.


Entropico_ARG

I gonna kill you human


SneakyDadBod

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


IanAlvord

Looks like Tai Lung.


winterdalliance

I am literally watching this movie right now!


Dive-kite-cat

Poor scared chubby baby


DrKimRichalds

You just know that cat has memorised all of their faces


slicktromboner21

Kinda like my cat when he needed ear medication.


Celeste_Praline

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.


cyriousdesigns

Have a friend help you administer it while you bite their scruff


lestronska

From [this video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_LGaK3oxIk&list=PLWjbjc8N0t-AGw2h7TbXaAGE-JTcNHRKS&index=27) apparently


ttaptt

I find the music extremely appealing, for some reason.


MelonRingJones

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.


hrofty

If you want a heavier version of this look up "The Hu" they are great


Hy-phen

(*wink*) Boing!


porcupine_snout

love that part too


SuperSpacePancake

Looks like he’s limping? Did they try to help him or are they just putting a tracking chip on him?


njsam

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


tyler0fm

Had to make it late for something


katt2002

good sportsmanship, catch and release. ;3


Mikeku825

Awwww... who's so mad? Who's such mad kitty?


JacobeanToaster

If I saw that I would immediately want to kiss the cat on their head


Sowderman

**G R O M P Y**


nspectre

(☝˘▾˘) If you put a stetson on it, it becomes a Jack Palance cat.


VHopeARMY

Why did they need to catch it though?


sakurazuka

They put a gps collar on it, this video is about Daurian Nature Reserve in Russia.


assbiscuitss

I want to know this too


ahudson33

Somebody please answer this, not knowing is killing me.


SyphonEXPppppppppppp

It’s so weird seeing a cat with round eyes


MediumGas3137

Eyes are not cat eyes


skincyan

They're Pallas cat eyes


xenogensis

Source? 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!

GeoStarRunner

Thats a good source


TheWhompingPillow

They're literally inside a living Pallas cat's head.


xenogensis

Yea I know... thats the joke. I really didn’t think I’d have to explain this.


TheWhompingPillow

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.


Fitzwillow

I dunno. I don’t buy it. Source?


-_Odd_-

I took back my pity upvote for that last paragraph. You're a dildo and I award you -1 point


skincyan

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 )


xenogensis

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.


Dialektiker

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.


TheShortKing10110

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.


xenogensis

I don’t have to imagine


AcaliahWolfsong

Rifts and lions don't have slit pupils. They are cats.


Bughuul1rs

Aren't vertical pupils for focusing through eye level grass? With less grass maybe they evolved without them


accoladevideo

r/blurrypicturesofcats


PastelFlamingo150

Did they spend all of their cardboard box budget on replacing the shredded coats?


Honest-Frosting-3854

Lol I love that little stare down they have for a moment


Significant_Sale_47

And why exactly are we catching this cat?


TheBelhade

Run, lil kitty! BE FREE!


StevieB0y69

*ANGER*


Readysetj0

What a gorgeous cat


Alwin_050

Poor, scared, beautifully ferocious baby. That’s a seriously dangerous nose to boop 🥰


Thestia

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.


Aurorae79

“ I will murder you the first chance I get human”


JasnahKolin

"Yes! There's the signal. Wait. Why is it coming straight ba...."


JessTheGiraffe

Mother, I crave violence


B4sorC4s

Ty now I can get a free cat


DeanoBambino90

Shouldve just put out a cardboard box.


RoboDae

They have round pupils? Interesting


PristineAd9800

That cat was definitely pist!


bearkerchiefton

This reminds me of the "how to catch a joey" video


Jackfly0114

Smol


Weremount

Chonky and mad


archonoid2

They look like stray cat at size but they have round pupil which is nice.


Discarding_Sabot

"Vitaly, get the cat!"


caramellopippop

When I need to give my cat his medication Just throw a blanket on him


Roach_335_

Kitty look like it wanna cuddle


divaminerva

Nice kitty- BOOP!


PhotonTheParrot

Just another normal day in Russia (Russian license plate in the very end of the video) r/normaldayinrussia 😊


SwordTaster

So you chase it until you're close and then yeet a coat onto it?


WarSolar

Just put a box out!


zggystardust71

Me every time my cat needs to go to the vet...


bigred1978

Can they be domesticated? Do they make good pets?


apexmedicineman

Anyone know why it's pupils aren't narrow slits?


LotusVibes1494

PALLAS CAT IS NOT PLEASED.


Internal-Ad7790

the content I need today


stringiercheese

Why don’t they just use a slice of cheese?


Cloak5

Never seen a cat with small round irises


igglyplop

"Unhand me! I am fearsome!"


alicebunbun

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.

Billy_Campbello

Effective and only way


-_Monsoon

step 1 : run step 2 : get caught step 3 : accept your fate step 4 : run


Missymuppetty

Murder eyes


curebyfiction

This is sad. Why are they catching it at all?


11never

It looks like they gave it a tracker. It looks like a case of interfering with one, probably to help protect them all.


cmcshane95

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


Novel_Condition_5815

If you closely look its back feet has something wrong so they probibly did help and put some tracker on the animal.


MelonRingJones

It’s “near-threatened”, so they’re probably tagging it.


thetipsynipper

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.


infinite_lion

This is such a compassionate response; thank you

[удалено]


cuterecluse9999

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.

This works great for feral kittens, too.


PTSTS

Make sure to squish it


Phobic_Nova

my only question is how hard, had me concerned for a hot sec-


GandalfDGreenery

Why though? What did they do to it? Or was this just a non-consensual cuddle sesh?


NotMatx

Y tho


singhVirender1947

They should stop calling these things 'cat'. It is more than that.


Gluten_maximus

I heard they have stubby ass legs and can’t really run fast… thanks evolution


Konigstier

So it has chosen death.


cielodalcamo

The cat went full spartan before getting caught


pygmymetal

He needs scritchies stat!!


Top_Duck8146

Apparently that is a Pallas cat


SoItWasYouAllAlong

What was that device with the Yagi type antenna?


RustyJuang

absolutely mugged it off


JoZerp

I didn't knew that the older sister of the white wings had a cat. s/


igneousink

[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2da4ev39TA4](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2da4ev39TA4) if you go to 25 seconds in you will see one actually running


GrimmReaper1942

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!"


booksandgarden

Interesting it has round pupils.


bigoljesser

Cat burglar


mmarcos2

WHY ARE ITS PUPILS CIRCLES AND WHY IS THAT MESSING WITH ME SO MUCH RIGHT NOW?


MANG0_MADNES

It’s just because they’re contracted because it’s freaking the fuck out


dQw4w9WgXcQ

I'm getting the same vibes as from the cat bus in My Neighbor Totoro.

JoeDiBango

This is how we catch our neighborhood stray when it has a tick.


Aninvisiblemaniac

when they're holding him down you can practically hear him screaming "REVENGE! REVENGEEE!!"


chedduhbahb

Cue the GTA “wasted” screen when he throws the jacket lmao


Lost_Pantheon

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
