There’s one thing that the entire Internet can agree on. You can’t, under any circumstances, hurt a cat. One rescue kitten became victim to a random drunken attack one night and his owner, Reaper1868, along with the entire Internet, swooped in to save him.
Reaper’s roommate was known to have a drinking problem and one night, after a particularly heavy binge, he came home late fixing to fight with someone. As far as belligerent interactions go, this is pretty much the lowest you can fall. The drunken roommate charged into the house, slinging slurs and trying to stir up a battle, but when faced with no physical response and after being ignored, he sought out a sure fire way to get a rise out of his roommate, Reaper. This drunken loser stumbled over to Reaper’s 6 month old cat and kicked her across the room to start a fight. And he certainly got one.
After the adorable tuxedo cat was launched across the room, Reaper dove at her attacker, knocking him to the ground and punching him mercilessly. Their third roommate stepped in to halt the fight and the men parted ways after a heated 20 minutes. Reaper scooped up his kitty and escaped to his room to tend to her bruises, but the drunkard wouldn’t stop there. He charged into the room to attempt to sucker punch Reaper, a punch which was promptly dodged, and in tern the drunk roommate recieved another round of punches to the face. Honestly, he completely deserved it.
The kitten pulled through without any injuries, but the story went viral after Redditors everywhere backed up Reaper and his actions. He had felt guilty for how severely he beat up his (now ex) roommate, posting on r/TrueOffMyChest to atone for his actions. However, the response online only fueled resentment towards animal abusers, praising Reaper for his heroism and his epic cat dad skills.
Following the assault on the tuxedo kitten, Reaper’s roommate moved out. According to a follow up question online, the cat-attacker has addressed his drinking problem, but doesn’t do anything to better himself. He resents Reaper for punching him, but according to literally every living person on Reddit, he completely deserved it. Nobody kicks a cat without some sort of retribution, what is wrong with you? Either way, the kitty is full recovered and living a pampered life in her new home, cuddling closely to her favorite protector, and hero, every night.
