I love the way kittens throw their whole body into it when something freaks them out.

I can't watch the Video but will say all my cats love to watch lizards on the deck and back stoop. They seem to see them as animated toys.

Haha! Those are some big lizards in comparison to the kitty! We have little anoles running around on our patio and our cat loves to stalk them from the safety of this side of the sliding glass door. She has caught a few babies that have somehow snuck into the house, but I think she'd be afraid of a big one like the ones in the videos!

None here are larger than 8" body length. Most are small. We have those common brown post lizards and assorted skinks. When they get into the house, and occasionally a small one will, the cats try to play with it. I grab them and put them back outside. They sneak in under our old fashioned screen door.

That video was hilarious! Poor kitty!

Makes me want to go get a kitten ... or two or three ...

Those appear to be Bearded Dragons, who are kinda big but usually super sweet & harmless. So they weren't going to hurt the kitty, and I had to LOL at his/her reaction regardless.

(and for the record, you can tell the kitty's more curious & playful than scared)

That video is not funny. There is something wrong with the kitten's leg or shoulder, either the harness is too tight, or it is put on wrong, the kitten's movements are awkward and inhibited. I wish people would spend more time paying attention to their pet's comfort and health than laughing at them.

The cat was wearing a harness? I didn't notice that.

And for the record, I've seen kittens do those movements - kittens who weren't wearing any harness, and had nothing wrong with their bodies.

The movements yes are normal for a kitten, but there is something wrong. Watch it again. There is something wrong about the way the kitten is using his right front leg. The harness is either too tight or on wrong, or the leg is caught in it some how.

Ah, now I see it... thought that line was just part of his/her pattern, but it looks like a collar that was too big (and got caught under the leg). I'm sure the owner who's filming didn't realize that, and hopefully fixed the issue once they did!
