to fully appreciate this movie, you need to understand that maryann is usually the more reclusive and non-tolerant kitty. she hides whenever the happy boy comes around!

oh my word–the first shot of her sitting on the cat had me in stitches!
and great music choice again!
That’s no way to treat an animal, and a parent should use this as an opportunity to teach their child how to interact kindly with their pets.
you are right — i do actually spend quite a lot of time teaching her to be gentle with the kitty. this movie was edited to just show the enduring patience of the cat. as a reminder, this cat is an expert at running away and hiding when she wants to (if it’s too loud or if there are new people in the house or when she gets tired of boisterous children), so i take her lackadaisical attitude as a signal that she’s not upset by the rough handling. but we still take the opportunity to remind my toddler to be gentle all the time.
