Think it's a real cat?

Looks real to me but how could they predict the ending?

The last time people tried to elimate free roaming cats it resulted in The Black Plague.

I think the funny outweighed the cruel though

Re: Think it's a real cat?

...I don't think so... (ref: CGI) I have seen both dogs and horses walk that way due to putting something strange on their feet/legs. Dogs, when they first put snow/mushing boots on them and many horses, the first time they wear 'splint boots' or protective wraps, will High-Step thinking they just have to step *out* of them, so they lift their feet as high as they can. I could easily see the cat walking across the coffee table and then sort of falling/plopping off the end because they are distracted by the items on its' feet and not paying as particular attention to being graceful.
No, I don't think that was *planned*, but I do think it was probably a serendipitous bonus when they filmed. One of those we'll-only-get-to-film-this-dramatic-reaction-once shots.

Re: Think it's a real cat?

Looked pretty real to me. I've seen the same when new objects are placed on an animal's feet.

I think it's about as cruel as putting a collar on a dog or cat who isn't used to one and thus over-reacts because if it.

Like Heidi said, I think the cat falling off the table was because of him being distracted.
Personally, I cracked up.

Sorry; I didn't think it was funny. The table was slippery.

Re: Think it's a real cat?

I thought the cruel outweighed the funny, I'm sure the clumsy landing noise was only sound fx, but still, it's not nice to put mittens on a cat's feet.

Re: Think it's a real cat?

This is as cruel as the Simon's Cat videos.......

But just as funny.
