Kitten stuck in plastic ball

What would you have done, carried on filming, or stopped and tried to help? Just holding the ball still might have helped.

On the other hand, let the cat learn. What I found interesting was the kitten seemed to know its hind legs needed to come back in.

I would have filmed and let the cat figure it out. XD unless the critter is in obvious distress (which this one wasnt) I wouldnt help.

He was clearly playing and not struggling. I don't think he was stuck at all and probably plays in that ball often.

I agree...he found a great way to play with his tail!

The kitten might be playing now, but kittens grow. Not to mention it looks like a tight fit. I wouldn't risk it. As soon as I saw the kitten thinking about going into the ball I'd have taken it away. It only takes seconds for things to go wrong.

Well I think you need to look at the way it tries to get its hind legs in, and later concentrate on watching the hind paws pushing against the sides of the ball. The tail I see as a distraction that keeps popping up and getting in the way.

The first half of the video was a little hard to watch, but he was so taken with his own tail, I don't think he thought he was "stuck" at all.

Then, at the end, the little nut gets back in the ball!

Seriously.

Clearly, the kitten had plenty of room and was at no time stuck. The whole thing would have been delightfully adorable... had I been able to get past how downright nasty that ball was. (Where's the throwing-up emoticon?)

Yick.
