    That guy’s lucky it’s the plastic water bottle and not the giant ceramic bowl. My cats usually go for the breakables.

      Kitteh’s keeping the bowl to sleep in – perish the thought he should use the $140 cat bed! 😀

        I believe you are right, Smartypants! I could get my cats an expensive bed but, no, they would still have to sleep where I want to put feet and get annoyed when I want to move!

    Possibly an example of short term memory loss? Maybe cat can’t remember they just knocked the bottle down. Ignoring the sign on wall? Or can’t read!

    Poor cat is trying to make his human understand that the empty bottle belongs in the bin under the counter and not on it.

    I especially love the way he hesitates for a couple seconds each time, as if he’s actually thinking about letting it be. “Hmmmm . . . . Nah. [push]”

      I like the momentary stop of play when the guy says “Leave it”, as if the cat is mulling over whether to do just that, then thinks better of it.

        That’s the part that cracked me up– they should have cut just as cat went ahead and whapped it off.

          Yup, I agree. Bad editing.

    Learn to recycle, hoomin!

    • Murray C October 12, 2017 / 5:26 pm

      AAAAuuuugggghhhhh! That LOOK! “I beg your pardon – Please, do not distract my train of thought” – and….ACTION!

    • JenDeyan October 12, 2017 / 8:15 pm

      That is one of my all time favorite cat videos!

  6. Duckie 🐥 October 12, 2017 / 5:06 pm

    Poor kitty! He’s addicted to knocking the bottle off the shelf. Why doesn’t hoomin stop enabling him, and get him into bottlehab?!

    • Murray C October 12, 2017 / 5:27 pm

      He’s addicted to Thwack.

    • Duckie 🐥 October 12, 2017 / 8:02 pm

      It’s worse than I thought! Kitty’s hitting the bottle!

  7. Flowerfanatic October 12, 2017 / 5:26 pm

    Yes, he definitely has his hooman trained perfectly!!! YUP, he does!! 🙂

  8. Ricky's Mom October 12, 2017 / 5:26 pm

    I can’t believe the hoomins leave that gorgeous bowl on that shelf. They will live to regret it.

    Something something about “the definition of of insanity”.

    Also, tee-hee at the new tag!

    • belphebe October 12, 2017 / 7:01 pm

      Agreed about the new tag! Only post tagged with it so far. I wonder what NTMTOM has used in the past for such videos?

      • Starfish October 12, 2017 / 7:22 pm

        It’s usually “Turn. The. Phone. SIDEWAYS!”, but I think this one’s funnier. 😁

      • Murray C October 12, 2017 / 8:05 pm

        Um, what’s the new tag and where does one see it????

        • Smartypants October 12, 2017 / 9:34 pm

          New tag is “Vertical Video Causes Bad Breath” – the tags are near the top, below the three “You Might Also Enjoy” posts.

          • Murray C October 12, 2017 / 9:40 pm

            Never really paid any attention to those – what do they mean?

            • allein 🐾 October 12, 2017 / 10:50 pm

              If you click on a tag it’ll show you other posts with the same tag. So if you click on the “cats” tag you’ll get…a lotta posts.

    Personal record is twenty one times with one of my cats.

    Better than my kitty who knocked my one of kind tea cup from Japan off my counter….and that cup is of course no more. *sobs*

    My late Oscar would do this when he was hungry. I guess it was his way of ringing the dinner bell. He must not have figured I was gone one day. I came in and counted 15 objects in the floor. Cinnamon, spoon, cup, you name it.

    I tried to teach him to ring a bell (like I saw a kitty doing on a video). His idea was to knock it off the counter. It worked. It sort of rang. He got fed.

      My cat has developed a method of letting me know when he wants me to feed him: Chewing on plastic bags.

      This is pretty reliably something he only does when he’s hungry and I’m watching, so I think it’s deliberate.

      Of course, it usually works. He doesn’t do it for extra food all the time, so I’d rather he get a few extra kibble than vomits up chewed plastic on the rug (or worse — doesn’t!)

    This is how a cat plays fetch. “Go get it, human. Bring it back. Idiot.”

    But seriously, I honestly think the cat must think they WANT it to knock the bottle off — because the cat has demonstrated that’s what it’s going to do, so why would they keep putting the bottle back unless they wanted it knocked off again?
