I’m not disagreeing by any means, but why is it so funny when cats aren’t graceful? Clumsy cat videos abound out there…and people love them. I admit, I’m not any different.
For example, one of my cats was sitting on my lap while I was reading on my bed the other night. She wanted petted at first, but then she was good with that and started cleaning herself, leaving me free to read. However, she wasn’t paying enough attention while cleaning and slid off of my leg. I was on the edge of the bed and was about to fall to the floor. She flailed. Luckily, I caught her (the flailing continued a bit and I received a few scratches for my trouble).
Still, I laughed hysterically. I immediately texted my wife what happened.
Why was this so funny to me? Is it because cats are normally so graceful that we enjoy them being taken down a peg? That possibility doesn’t seem very nice.
Regardless, it was very funny.
