Opinions differ. Always will.
The video shows a great deal of irresponsibility by the father. He allows his son, under his supervision, to do something to a cat that could have caused both cat and child a great deal of trauma. The father learned nothing, because his child miraculously did not
get hurt. And the child learned nothing because the father did not correct his misbehavior. The cat learned to associate children with something unpleasant. This is a lose-lose-lose situation...
This is why so few of us find it to be 'cute'? There's really nothing cute about it, even before
the cat hits the water.
Have you thought about actively
looking for him? That would be the more responsible thing to do. You're gaining nothing by waiting two weeks and then giving up on him. What if he needs help somewhere?
Thank you so much hazel for saying this. Seeing as SSS and I "got off on the wrong foot" I'm afraid to say anything to him as he may see it as being "nasty".
It would be so nice to see someone
looking for this poor kitty.
