Would you call this cruel and unusual or funny?

I can't think why anyone would put any animal, much less a cat, in here - it looked pretty freaked, esp in the beginning...

Cruel... extremely cruel. I only saw a few seconds of the bath, but that was horrible.

People have no sense.
That thing was like putting the cat in the washer.

While I may be not a big cat fan, that was disgusting; cartoons and jokes, even mean-spirited, are one thing, blatant cruelty to any critter is another. Whoever is responsible for that oughtta be prosecuted.

I wish I thought of that invention first.

No dogs allowed though. Just cats.

That's so unnecessary.... when you can traumatize a cat efficiently with plain household tools and appliances.... put them in the freezer for 10 minutes and stand to the side and open the door..... put clipboard on their tails and watch them run through the house banging it behind them....throw them in the dryer for 2 minutes..... I remember the first place I moved into that had a trash compactor.... we immediately named it the compact-a-cat.....use your imagination people for pete's sake....

I doubt it'll matter, but I emailed them and told them it should be removed. (Have to admit I didn't watch it, I'm taking everyone's word for it that it was as bad as it sounds, and I didn't want to see it.) Maybe the rest of you could comment as well.

Sorry your email feel on deaf ears. I only watched a few seconds. That is cruel what they did. There is no reason to terrify a cat like that. I have had many cats and mine I bathe. They liked it. In fact the most special cat I ever had (my first) had to climb in the shower or bathtub with me. I made it fun for him. The hard part was trying to use soap or shampoo without it getting in his eyes. I have always bathed my cats in the sink and never had a problem. What they did would traumatize a cat and that is cruel. I do not find it funny at all.

cyphercat I went back there and emailed them also asking that they remove it. I know it does not mean they will but it never hurts to try.
I rather ask than do nothing. I will keep my fingers crossed that they take it off.

Just because one site picked up a video and posted it, does not mean that it was intended to be a mean spirited video.

this could very well belong to someone who is bringing light to a horrible invention that is being mass produced and advertised as a "cat spa" ( as it says on the side)

Maybe it was used in a law suit?
Who knows..

but the web site that is hosting it now is probally loving the attention it is getting and is probally populated with people who find this type of stuff funny.

That might be true but then if they are trying to express it is something not to be done they should state that. I only told them I did not find it funny if that is their intent and asked them to consider removing it. There was more I said but in a nice way. It still does not mean they will listen.

I just googled "cat spa bath video" and got a whole list of sites that have it. I know I've seen it on youtube too. A quick glance through the sites listed on Google, I got the impression that alot of people don't like it and that the inventor was upset about that video.

Good that people are speaking up. You should not scare any animal like that.

Doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense to complain about a video you haven't even watched for yourself.
