Duck Duck Fail

This marmie’s all set for a duck dinner — until her friend gives her a goose.

Reached for comment, a representative of the Duck Hunter’s League offered the following expert analysis:



  1. that was laugh-out-loud-in-the-cubicle funny

  2. Oh gah, I am in tears laughing. I think I busted something. Or wet something.
    😆 😆 😆

    Note that marmie cat’s um, “colleague,” doesn’t take nearly as long a time to launch his attack.

  3. PS: PLUS… both these cats are rather . . . portly.

  4. Indeed they are! I was thinking the duck’s chances of getting away were pretty close to 100 percent even without the intervention… Great video!

  5. *ahem* ya think??? 😯

    esp the associate cat ….

  6. Yes, I don’t think Ducky McDuckersons has a lot to worry about from Portly and Portlier. 🙂

  7. Mom! He’s bothering me when I’m trying to eat! MoOoooOm!!!!!

  8. We iz NOT fat; we iz big-boned. An’ fluffy.

  9. I’m taking this as PROOF that cats have a sense of humor. 🙂 Colleague kitteh absolutely purposely scared marmie kitteh.

  10. ROFL! I think the duck and marmie cat had a game going when the marmie cat got the beejeezus scared out of her/him. I mean, the duck clearly saw the marmie cat, right? This was a multi-view vid….I’m still chuckling. Gray kittie clearly won that round!

  11. MCPortly and McPortlier. 😀

  12. Anyone who’s seen one cat startle the bejeezus out of another while in the litter box knows they have senses of humor. 😛

  13. Foie gras is a bit on the rich side.
    Can’t wait to see what the Marmie does for payback

  14. I suspect Ducky has the measure of these guys, and the sight of them doesn’t exactly strike terror. More like “Hey, Fred. Yeah, I see you there.”

  15. I think Tabby is on Ducky’s payroll.

  16. Yeah, I was gonna call tinee tabbee, but even *I* couldn’t stretch my credulity that far.

  17. In David Attenborough voice, “…and so the hunter becomes the hunted…”

  18. Yes!!! 🙂

  19. I don’t know–that marmie seems able to move pretty fast when he’s inspired!

  20. . . . much like my own Big Fat Orange Cat, who’s slow as molasses until either 1) something scares him, or 2) he manages to steal some food. Then he’s just an orange blur.

  21. The background scenery beyond the fence looks like Mordor.

  22. Kari Callin says:

    “Duck, duck,…”
    “GOOSE!” 😉

  23. Classic “cat pranking cat” vid:

    Laughing so hard the tears are Still rolling down my face!!

  25. So it’s “A Thing”?

  26. MinglesMommy says:


  27. TOTALLY!

  28. YAY David Attenborough! 😀

  29. I was thinking “where the heck IS this place?”

  30. Silly cat. I really doubt it could’ve caught the duck even if it was left to itself 🙂

  31. **** golf clap ****

  32. That was great!! 😆

  33. “One does not simply waddle into Mordor.”

  34. *giggle* How ’bout “Tubbee tabbee”, T.U.M. ???? 🙂

    (sorry ’bout that, cat !!!)

  35. I actually heard his voice in my head! 🙂

  36. Fabulous!!! 🙂

  37. Clearly the Tuxie is the goose’s hired bodyguard.

  38. Cat’s bro sold him out……lol

  39. 😆

  40. It’s a commonly acknowledged fact that cats can temporarily suspend laws of physics when startled.

  41. i’m laughing so hard, it looks like i’m crying…and then i decided to read the comments which are just as funny as the video and the animation afterwards! OMG, i totally needed that. it’s cold, rainy and dreary here in Hot-lanta!

  42. Yes! I had to stifle an lol so my boss thinks I was still working.

  43. Can you call male ducks cocks because that was a total block?
