While most mailmen worry about getting attacked by dogs, one mail carrier faces the claws of an angry (or playful) cat when he heads out on his route. In the video below, you can see the cat watching the mail slot before attacking the mail as it dumps into the house.
It takes several attempts before the carrier is able to get the mail into the slot as the cat continually swipes with its paws. The fake laugh track in the background is due to the video being featured on "America's Funniest Home Videos" in 2014, according to "AFV."
Cats are notorious for chasing anything that moves, from laser pointers to string. Their brains and bodies are hardwired to chase and hunt, according to Perfect Paws.
"Through play, they develop the coordination and timing needed to successfully capture their target. They learn to adjust their speed to the speed of moving objects. They learn to gauge distance by pouncing," according to Perfect Paws.
Because cats are natural predators, they may attack anything that moves if they aren't given the chance to "hunt," according to Perfect Paws. You can help rein in their attacks by playing with your cat and purchasing balls and other toys that move so they can lunge and bound around.
