I usually do not write too short discussions and I avoid to talk about politic, but when I saw this video I had to share. The video is very short. Please watch it and let me know what do you think about the reaction of the cat, scared by Donald Trump speech. This scene is just too funny, I cannot refrain from laughing. In your opinion what scared the cat? Willy the cat, from the top of our fence does not seem to care. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weeNYQg_j04

This was my first thought. Donald hairdo is terrible.

@Jessicalynnt I was thinking that. The poor cat was probably wondering when that thing on his head was going to pounce!!

@WorDazza The poor cat thought that if that thing would fall off his head he was in danger.

@LadyDuck it was that awful face bigger than life and his grimaces that finally got the cat. In fact I would be scared too to watch Trump on such a big screen. Too real to life

I suspect that I must have some feline tendencies because he has that effect on me as well.

I really don't think the cat had any clue who that was on TV. Animals don't "think" along the same lines that we do. It's possible that just the sound scared it off. On another note, I love your photo of Willy. My daughter had a cat that looked amazingly like him, and his name was Emmett.

The video made me laugh, poor cat he surely got a scare. Willy is lovely, he is always on that spot early in the morning. I do not know what he does up there.

I have to disagree about animals not being able to think like we do. I could go in-depth about it but I won't because it would be way too long. Here are just a few examples: service animals, raccoons and bears. All three of these examples do think just like we do.

I believe animal instincts when it comes to weather, i often observe them, perhaps Trump is a brewing storm.

Yes, may be that Trump is a brewing storm, unless the cat was scared by his look and his hair.

@LadyDuck I guess we won't get our wish about that, but at least we can turn the channel when he comes on the news...which seems to be a constant thing.

That is too funny. From what I saw he wasn't even saying anything antagonistic. So the cat just didn't like him. Smart cat.

I also tried to listen to the speech and I do not think it was the tone of the voice or what he said that scared the cat. May be the cat does not like the hairdo and the eyes of that guy.

Cat's are sensitive to sound. Some sounds we don't even hear. Most likely just an audio response.
