Seriously PO’d cat won’t let mailman deliver letters

A really funny video a postal worker filmed while delivering the mail to a home where the cat always freaks out when he puts the mail through the door slot.

At one point, the cat even gets a hold of the mailman’s glove that he’s using to nudge the mail through, to avoid putting his fingers in harm’s way.


One of our old dogs used to loathe the mailman. Sasha, on the other hand, doeesn’t quite get it – it’s the noise more than anything that gets her attention. But this video is too funny. It almost looks fake. (And sorry about the goofy audience track, it was shown on “that” TV show.)

(I’m told that in order to better see my Facebook posts in your feed, you need to “follow” me.)

I knew that cat looked familiar:

    When I try to watch the video, I get the following message:

    “”Mailman Battles Angry Cat W…”
    This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Vin Di Bona Productions.”

    Is anyone else seeing this?

  • Cats get some weird ideas into their little heads. Mostly it has to do with something they either really like or dislike.

    I have 3 human and 3 feline roommates. The felines mostly respond to habit, and easily associate certain people with situations. All of these cats know me as the nice guy who gives them food. One knows when to scream for milk. Another leads me to his food dish as if to say “you’re home, time to fill ‘er up!”.

    This one sees this guy and knows that it’s playtime. Notice the cat was waiting, he or she knows the drill. She sees this guy in his postal uniform and knows that something cool comes through that slot and it’s fun to play with when he walks up to the door.

    Cats are peculiar creatures, My mother once told me “A dog thinks it’s people. Cat’s think that people are cats.” I think there’s a grain of truth to that. I’ve observed feline behavior, and that’s what they seem to think.

    That was not a cat, maybe a cat of nine tails with fire. That is just a blending of different segments of a movie. I saw the Desolation of Smaug in 3D in a Movie Theater in Los Angeles. As the Hobbit that may become a triliogy, but for now there will at least be a sequel. I have the Hobbit book. And the other trilogies in book for The Lord of the Rings. I also have the DVDs.

    We have many dogs in my building, but I would like to get a cat. Many of the people that like hear don’t know the rules that dogs must be on a leash. Some people have two dogs you allowed to have 2 pets. I think that short video about the cat is real for a House.
    I have a condo. But my address still as Apt 108 I am far in the back of this building. With all that dogs in this building it would probably be afraid.
    My mother like cats. I want a cat, but I have problems with plumbing from the second upstairs renters. There different renters in 208 but that was over two years ago. One of the cats that my parents had was on a leash. It was a Siamese Seal Point. I had a Siamese Blue Point that I trained when it was just a kitten.

    Well, I don’t have the “second sight” or anything, but I have been told that I’m not bad at giving the Greek “evil eye.”
    Perhaps the two are related.

  • Okay I knew that cat looked familiar:

  • Silver_Witch

    He was totally a velociraptor!!! Oh my Goddess how did you know.

  • annetteboardman

    My last cat loved to attack the mail as it came through the mail slot (I have one in my door at that height). I once caught her doing it and yelled out the mailman “Sorry about that!” and he yelled back (through the closed door) “No problem!”

  • Zorba

    Or maybe a velociraptor. Remember those vicious velociraptors in “Jurassic Park”?
    Fortunately, our “mean kitty” loved me, my husband, and the kids. It was just everyone else she couldn’t stand.

  • Silver_Witch

    Ohhh Zorba – I am certain it was a shape-shifter and not a cat at all. I suspect he was actually like a T-Rex in cat form. He was evil and HUGE…..he loved my husband though – actually loved men (who can blame him about that eh). After 10 years of enduring his hatred he went to live with a very nice older gay man who adores him. Funny eh?

  • Zorba

    Tsk, tsk. What kind of a witch can’t handle a cat? ;-)

  • Silver_Witch

    This cat reminds me of a cat I had who’s name as far as I was concerned was Satan….Satan continues to live…just not with me.

  • Silver_Witch

    Guess he wants to read it first!

  • There is a cat named killer that hunts the bushes on the country trail where I hike, It seems that Killer was raised with Pit Bulls. Many of the walkers are afraid of him because he puts on a very scary show. A few years ago I gave him a dog treat, so we have been best buds since then. I haven’t seen him for about a year, but yesterday he came running out of the underbrush, headed straight for me and wrapped him self around my ankles.

  • First, shove through some fresh catnip. Second, shove through the mail. Third, run like hell.

  • Zorba

    Probably, but OTOH, I once had a cat (who looked a lot like this one, actually) who attacked everything and everyone, except us. And not in play. We had to close her up in the bedroom whenever anyone came over. (She was very affectionate with us, though.)
    Fortunately, we live in the country with a curbside mailbox, so she couldn’t attack the mailman.

  • Yeah he’s like here comes some entertainment.

  • keirmeister

    That’s a cat for you. It’s probably not even PO’d….it’s more like a hunting game.
