Young animals can be so cute – but they also have no boundaries. That’s not their fault, they are learning as they go. Then again some adult animals also have no qualms about encroaching on your personal space – I’m looking at my two cats as I type this. But this is one of the most egregious – and adorable – violations of personal space that I’ve ever seen. Feel free to watch this video several times. I did.
We see, in an admittedly short video, a kitten using a husky’s ear as a cat toy. No, it’s not a plushie husky either – it’s a living, breathing and VERY patient huskie. He’s just on the floor with a nonchalant expression. That’s on the surface, though. His thoughts must be moving a lot faster and probably involve how to quickly swallow a cat whole. Oh, I kid, I kid – he’s probably plotting how to ship him to another country.
The kitten is determinedly playing with the Husky’s ear, while the dog just presents a stoic face. ‘If I ignore him, he’ll stop. If I ignore him, he’ll stop – ‘ I wonder how long after the video ended that he decided to put the kitten in his place. I have to say that this is a very tolerant pooch. If a kitten were doing that to my ear, I’d be quickly turning and glare – OK, who am I kidding? I’d just be letting him do it too, as long as he didn’t draw any blood.
I have to say that whoever came up with the YouTube title ‘Get a kitten they said, it will be fun they said’ deserves all the kudos that they get. It’s one of those that I wish that I had come up with. Oh well. It just seems to suit this dog’s reaction so perfectly. ‘I liked just lying here resting. Now I have this little fellow trying to bite my ear. I hope he grows up fast – ‘ Though as they both get older, he might miss those early years. Nah. He’ll be happy to sleep.
