I love cats. I’m much more of a cat person than a dog person. However, even I sometimes wonder why cats act the way they do. They’re really quite odd at times.
This video shows an example of this, with a cat clearly determined to wind up the dog for no reason whatsoever. Even though the cat risks getting hurt.
The dog is minding its own business watching TV. But the cat clearly wants to play, and spends a while wondering if it will get away with hitting the dog.
The cat finally strikes, and the dog knows it’s coming. And the dog reacts in exactly the way you would expect it to, trying to bite the cat. Which then runs off like a coward.
