Real-life Bonsai Kitten
Status: Real
image Bonsai Kittens grown in jars are a hoax. But this video (warning: text ads on the site may not be safe for work) shows a kitten that manages to get in and out of a glass jar quite well. (And the video seems to be real.) It's amazing what some cats can do. My fat cat could never have managed this.

the video is taken from the german TV station RTL, and i guess it's from a "funny clips" show.

The video wouldn't work for me. downer

But cats are evil, so it doesn't really bother me if I can't see it. grin

I saw something similar on another clips show. The cat got into a vase head first...and then spun in circles with it's hind feet. Another jumps into a jelly jar...just the tail is sticking up...and then it rolls to the side & scootches out.

Cats are very flexible.
It's a small cat, and a big-mouthed jug.
What I find mildly amazing is that the cat doesn't topple the bottle, either when getting in or when getting out. Is the bottom weighted, or maybe fastened to the table?

Well, my kitten jumpted into and out of his cat food plastic bottle (which I have becuase my old cat would chew through the cat bags) It just scares him, but it's possible.
