Collar Camera Video Captures a Cat Fight from the Cat’s Perspective

Editor’s Note: Turn your volume way down before you click play. The video gets very loud very soon after it starts and we wouldn’t want your boss knowing your watching cat videos at work… you’re welcome.


There are a lot of POV videos out there of humans doing incredible stunts or getting into all sorts of scary trouble, but we don’t really have much similar footage from the animal kingdom. Maybe it’s because GoPro hasn’t announced their Cat Fancy mount (yet?).

Fortunately, for those who do want to see what trouble their feline friends get into, there’s something called a collar camera. And the video above was captured on just such a device. It’s a very literal cat fight captured from the cat’s point of view.

The video above is the original, uploaded by the owner N Ferg (there’s a copy being passed around Reddit right now) and below we have the raw, uncut version and a short behind the scenes introduction to the feisty cat who was wearing the camera. Funny, he’s acting like he’s not the biggest bully in the neighborhood.

    No need for this. Why bother the cat just for a video?

  • Jason Kustra

    What do you mean bothering a cat?
    The cat had the camera on its collar.

    Oh, Jason. Cats can’t work cameras.

    That is simply one miserable thing to have done to that cat. It did not want that fight, and I can assure you he had a really frightened, high tension time just so that you could get some cheap YouTube post. Just another example of humans having amusement at the expense of an animal. Cats not that uncommonly DIE of fights, I tell you this since you probably didn’t know it. I trust that if you did, you would be a decent enough human not to have done this. Cat fights spread two deadly feline diseases: feline leukemia and the feline version of AIDS (FIV). At the very least, fights very often result in roaring infections of their jaws and jowls from puncture wounds by the other cat’s claws. So maybe (I say maybe), this is a case of “forgive them for they know not what they do.” I hope so.

    Great! The cat’s perspective is way more realistic than third person viewed videos. They shouldn’t be fighting though. Cat care is important and it’d be better reading about it in http://www.cathealthtips.org/types-mange-in-cats-treatment/
