**OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:** >!The dog breaking through my window screen and attacking my cat in my home on an otherwise nice and quiet day.!< ***** **Is this an unexpected post with a fitting description?** **Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.** ***** [*Look at my source code on Github*](https://github.com/Artraxon/unexBot) [*What is this for?*](https://www.reddit.com/r/Unexpected/comments/dnuaju/introducing_unexbot_a_new_bot_to_improve_the/)


Details: I was just chillin on my phone, minding my business. Neighbors dog decides to jump at my cat who was sitting in the window. The window was open, he busts right through the screen and scrambles inside. No cats, dogs, humans, nor stuff (aside from the window screen) were harmed thankfully!! Edit because people are already being rude: this was an incredibly busy weekend for me with three dance gigs back to back. Yes my home was a mess, it’s clean now. This was in my hour of free time before I had to leave for my next gig. Chill out and be civil please. Edit 2: Thanks to all you kind people being nice about my living room, I appreciate it!! And to answer the seemingly number one question- no I have never done Jiu Jitsu, MMA, wrestling, etc., but now I kinda wish I had! I dance and dabble in contortion/circus arts, hence the yoga mat as people have pointed out. Do your stretching folks! Never know when you'll need to... take down and use your legs to trap a random dog in your home...? Or something to that effect lol


Ahhh redditors, always looking for reasons to criticize others and acting like they’ve never had a messy room before, classic


Of course their room isn't messy. Their mother cleans it once a week


100% this. More than once, I've found myself in a disagreement with a Redditer, just to find out they were a 14 year old kid who thought they were an expert on everything.


Can confirm, my 13 year old knows everything. Just ask him.


Ask him who the best Spider-Man is




Nic Cage




Whenever I see a dumb ass comment on Reddit, I tell myself it’s just a stupid kid with no actual life experience and move on


When I respond to the dumb ass comments, I don't ever think I will change the mind of the person making them. I hope that maybe somebody is reading it who might sometimes have similar dumb thoughts but also has an open mind and is willing to learn something. The comments you make get waaaaay more views than replies, so even if the person commenting will never change maybe somebody else will realize the error of their ways. This isn't saying my opinion on everything is right. I'm more talking about the comments that are blatantly stupid where any decent person can see they are in the wrong.


> I hope that maybe somebody is reading it who might sometimes have similar dumb thoughts but also has an open mind and is willing to learn something. There are dozens of us!


I've debated many brick walls in my time. Socrates may have done the same thing and why he developed his Socrates Method because of how difficult it is to persuade brick walls.


Sadly, most of them are coming from people that are older and even have stupid kids of their own.


teenagers are ghastly. think they're cool but they live with their parents and have stupid faces that aren't properly grown yet.


The way you phrased that gave me a chuckle. Thanks.


Even when they are 37, statement still often applies


I've been on this platform for a while, so I'm an expert, and not everyone is 14 Anyways, sex




Right, it’s not messy, just a little cluttered that might take 10 minutes to pick up. OP is all comfy on her couch because that’s what weekends are for.




It's not even bad. Yeah there's clutter, but the carpets are clean and there isn't garbage anywhere


How does anyone survive without being cluttered these days? I feel like I can only keep it looking nice for 1 day before all life's parts end up getting taken out of their special little places.


Yeah I feel like if you live in an apartment/townhouse without a lot of storage you end up just having a bunch of shit everywhere without even trying. I’ll purge stuff regularly but still be like “well this cooler doesn’t fit anywhere else so I guess it’s just going to sit in the corner of the living room.”


My living room is mildly messy (like, give me a couple minutes to tidy before you come in), but on my security camera it looks like a fucking disaster. Those things are like a funhouse mirror for clutter.


I bet that's why so many influencer houses are so blank and empty


Seriously it probably took 5-10 minutes tops to clear all that out. That's not "messy" lol.


This room is messy? Fuck, I need to clean my living room


Only if you want to! Nothing wrong with having a messy room. People need to mind their fucking business and remember that just because they have an opinion doesn’t mean they need to share it!


Also this isn't messy. It just lived in.




Am confused. Think that's more orderly than my wife and I's place, to be honest. We're both corporate or healthcare professionals, but don't usually host company (our space, eat shit lol) I am surprised anyone can complain about this when I know the amount of people that shell out money to e-girls whose bedrooms look like a bomb went off haha


These kids don't even realize there's a difference between messy and dirty. My living room is messy. I can have it cleaned up in 5-10 minutes. If it was dirty it would take 30-60 minutes.


Bruh can you imagine living in such squalor? There's a whole yoga mat out! And a uh... blanket on the couch! In autumn!! Shameful!


I guarantee 100% of the messy room commenters still have mommy cleaning up their room for them.


Some people are just complete idiot's. 15 minute power clean there at best 🤣


Don’t explain yourself to these people!


Seriously. They are owed no explanation.


Wow you reacted like it was a routine but it's not even your dog




If that's messy, im fucked.


Who gives a shit about messy anyway? It's not dirty. It doesn't look like there's food and stuff just laying around. It's mostly clothing and stuff.


> It doesn't look like there's food and stuff just laying around Dog: What do you mean there is no food laying around ? I'm pretty sure I saw several cats in here !


If that's messy... Oh my god what have I become.


I know right lmaooo


Forget the haters Your true calling is MMA fr ![gif](giphy|gjaYi3YW0cOT6)


Seriously my first thought, I was like, did she immediately set that dog up for a triangle choke? Lol


She definitely had full control


My thoughts exactly. Her ground game would be on point!!


Most definitely and she obv has great reflexes


The cat watching chaos ensue below him/her without batting an eye was priceless.


That’s killing me🤣🤣🤣 Classic Catting level 18 And the dopey dog wagging its tail while pinned 🙃


Fuck anyone for calling your home messy. Those are not good humans.


You should never feel like you need to apologize for your house looking like you live there, there’s a bunch who are lucky enough to have a house and living a House and more often than not they look like they’re lived in. Edit- was using talk to text so naturally it said something other than what I was trying to say


My mother in law judges me like seriously I have 3 kids and raising your kid don't judge me cause I decided to play with my kids and your kid ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|yummy) instead of cleaning


fuck the messy room noise, your living room looks cozy AF.


“Clean your room” is classic small dick incel energy straight off of 4chan. Your home looks good and cozy.


I liked the state of your place. It’s *home*. I like my place clean and tidy but home isn’t a magazine cover, unless you like it like that. To each is own. But a little mess and clutter, that shows it’s a place of comfort and rest. Kudos on those *cat*-like reflexes! Your cats showed you a thing or two! 🤣


How dare your living room look like you live there? Have some decency for the rest of us!


The cat on top is like 'well, this is entertaining'


I hope you neighbour volunteered to fix your window screen, or pay for a replacement? Glad everyone's all right and nice tackle lol


You look more like a grappler than a linebacker, got that boy in a reverse triangle




Most normal people’s home look like this from time to time. It’s called living in your home…


There's always a reason for something. Yours is a slap to their stupid faces. Im a father of 3 small kids. I always take a deep breath before I clean the table after meal, shoes all over the laundry and clothes in the dryer that's been sitting for 5 days now.😁 Anyway grabbing that dog with your phoneon hands is impressive.


Other cat on the tower be just like, nah.....not my problem.


Bonus points to the dog for not freaking out any further but you did a damn great job protecting your cats. Real cat mother over here! Respect. The dog owners should be more careful.


My only thought aside from the obvious "what the fuck" was "stop the dog and protect the cats". The owners are generally very very responsible, this was just a one-off freak moment thankfully!


Now I’m freaking out if this could happen with my cats since we have a very rambunctious next dog neighbor who “loves” cats.


OP said the window was open so the dog just came through the screen window so just make sure the window is closed when not home (as you probably should for security reasons anyway) & if the window is open just be around it like you would a candle! You can also always put up more protection surrounding certain areas you’re worried about


Yeah, my window was open all the way. We only ever have them open when we're home, but now we're going to be extra sure that we only open them halfway instead of all the way.


One of my cats pushed my other cat out the window right through the screen, so now I only open mine partially as well lol. (It was the first floor, she was fine)


Here I thought cats only push vases and cups...


> next dog neighbor I'm not sure if this was intentional, but it's brilliant!


It was indeed on purpose. He’s my dog neighbor. Sweet pittie but pittie nonetheless.


I appreciated that your void cat seemed almost completely unimpressed.


Tbf to them, apart from the whole breaking and entering, he seems very well tempered. Seems more like a play that got a bit too boisterous given he chills tf out straight away. Hope the neighbours were good about it!


> one-off freak moment Instinctive prey drive. Dog saw the cat and immediately went for it and once the instinct moved on he became pretty docile. The worst part is that that can be almost impossible to train out of a dog since its sporadic and very, very instinctive. That being said great job protecting your cats!


I would like to point out the cat pulling out it’s inner Jackie Chan with the pivot off the wall. That was bad ass.


That dog was standing there wondering why it couldn't go play with the kitties.


That other cat sitting on top of the cat tree seems completely unfazed lmao


"Better him than me"


"Fuck, I was almost an only child again...."




If he dies he dies


“Not my problem” -Cat, probably


Cat, definitely


That cat: Oh no…..anyway


Lol he's just watching


I was going to comment the same thing! I'm glad someone else noticed :)


[That cat:](https://c.tenor.com/-KgqJGNhJC0AAAAC/tenor.gif)


"What new game is this?!"- The Dog


He was SO happy to be tackled by me??? Now that the trauma of this has worn off a bit the dogs tail wagging makes me laugh


Gotta commend those grappling skills. Crossed the ankles and everything.


thought she was gonna put the dog into a triangle at first


watching this replay in slowed down time, it's amazing to see how fast animals react & also track. The neighbors dog followed, adjusted and attempted to get the black cat which parkoured its way from the floor to couch to a soft yogapad landing escaping into infinity, all the while, slyly evading the agile woofer.


"This is ‘parkour’


I think you meant ''barkour''


No actually I think he meant “pawkour”


Luckily it looks like the pup just wanted to play. He was not growling or barking even he jumped through the screen. You did great and glad the doggie was not in attack mode!


Yeah, he's clearly a good boy, just a little spontaneous


Looks like a Black Mouth Cur. I have one, this thread basically sums her up. I could see her doing this, she would probably just paw and play "bite" the car, but she would also jump through an open window to do it.




They don't have to growl or bark to be in attack mode. My dog looks exactly like this dog in the video when she chases birds, and it never ends well for the birds if she manages to catch them (happened twice, both died).


Yeah, dogs can be deathly quiet when they're actually in kill mode.


That dog did not want to play lmao it’s crazy how much people sugar coat dogs bad behavior


He looked confused as shit. "Now how did I get here?"


As someone who also has a pit-mix, this is 100% what was going through his head.


Rapidly followed by "fuck yeah, cuddles! ...what did I come in here for again?"


yeah. just chasing the cat for cuddles. whatever you people have to tell yourselves 😂


He’s friendly just don’t look at him


Don't worry he doesn't bite as long as you don't exist in physical form


Lmao I swear “pibble parents” smoke a fat bag of crack for breakfast every morning


they have to know you're the alpha crackhead. once they see you miss that morning hit, it's off to kill the neighbors cat.


I’ll tell you what good reaction I’m a quick and athletic guy and my dog got chased by a pit bull and wasn’t able to react fast enough. This is underrated good job.


Thank you, I appreciate it. No one knows how moments like that will go, shock is a hell of a thing!


Seriously do you have any martial arts or jiu-jitsu? That was an amazing reaction and you didn’t even have a hold of the collar until the very end! Saved both your cats lives!!




Dude you can’t leave us hanging on the status of your dog…


Are you cool with your neighbor? This feels like something my dog would do given the chance.


We're acquaintances, they're generally very responsible and friendly. I was happy to forgive since no one was hurt, it would be a different story if they were always irresponsible or one of my cats got hurt


I can tell you're a good person for not freaking out about an honest mistake/something like that, good on you for not making a mountain out of a molehill.


Also: Cat steals human’s pancake; human saves cat’s life. Who’s a good human? Who’s such a good human? :P


Tell them to use a leash or next time you'll finish the job. You don't want dead cats.


This is what I’ve been looking for no one’s talking about how that dog was probably out on a walk off leash 🙄🙄 I’d be pissed as fuck


Seriously. What if this happens when the owner isn’t there??


Your cat wouldn't have gotten hurt, it would have been killed


I’m confused, did their dog escape? Cause your cats were indoors staring through the open window, and the dog was off leash and got WAY TOO excited.




training the desire to chase prey out of a dog is incredibly difficult. Especially in dogs that are bred to do that. Most people don't have the ability to do it. And it's probably not worth the effort? It's far better to just make it so that these situations don't happen. For example don't let your dog run around off leash if there's no fence.




Calm down, lol. My dog has a chase instinct. It's extremely difficult to stop him from trying to chase after shit. He has never hurt a thing in his life, though. Most of the time he chases my cat around the house a little bit, catches up to him, and then doesn't know what to do from there and sniffs him. He'll chase neighbourhood cats or other dogs at the dog park if given the opportunity. Chasing something doesn't immediately mean the dog is trying to kill it.




Nice body triangle! That's some high level Jujitsu right there!


Came here looking for the jiu jitsu / triangle comment, you did not disappoint!


It's not a body triangle because that would be around the...body. It's around the neck but from the back, thus it's a reverse triangle.


Looks more like a reverse gogoplata at the start


You mean a dogoplata?


He seems like a good boy seeing as he stayed calm once held back. Good catch lol.


A "good boy" doesn't barrel through a window trying to ~~unalive~~ kill another animal.


Honestly, I think he just wanted to play... he didn't try to attack me or the cats at all after I stopped him. I know dogs can get super rambunctious and not realize how big they really are, so I gave him a pass for this one!


Yeah it doesn't seem like dog is aggressive at all, just chasing cats, what's new


My old dog would have happily shredded any small animal she came across. Tail wagging and having a fine old time doing it. It’s not necessarily aggression that makes dogs do dog things. Watch a dog with a squeaky toy. It’s the same thing really. To a dog it’s just fun.


I learned from my cat that squeaky toys sound exactly like terrified mice actively being toyed with. I never really put the two together before that.


A prey drive does not make a dog a bad dog.




People forget this is a predator and not a robot you can program. We're not going to be able to breed out the chase instinct for smaller animals. In fact it's almost encouraged unknowingly with play, throwing balls, stuffed animals and toys. Which is fine because they need stimulus for a healthy mind and body. It's always the owners fault, not the dogs. Even vicious dogs are the product of shifty owners. This dog didn't even attack her, a stranger holding him down. He's a good dog and his owner lost control for a moment.


The cat on top of the cat stand: "Not my circus. Not my monkeys. I'm going back to sleep."


Or an MMA grappler Edit: AN MMA grappler or A MMA grappler?😕


The letter M when spoken starts with a vowel sound, so it should be an MMA grappler. It is the *sound* that determines which to use. A mixed martial arts grappler or an MMA grappler.


My initial thought... jiu-jitsu


Envious of that external hip rotation :/


You’re a fucking beast, how many seconds between seeing the danger and jumping instantly in to stop and defend your animals even was there?!? Like a millisecond it took for you to jump into action. Hell yeah dude


Add to that her never taking MMA and just instinctively locks up a triangle. Lady has some awesome instinct and would make a great athlete in combat sports


I'm glad everyone was ok. What a catch! You have some insane reflexes!


There is a difference between messy and dirty this isn't even that messy people need to chill 🤣 awesome video


It’s just stuff all over, it happens. If you came into my apartment right now it looks exactly the same. I’m exhausted and been busy. Sorry. Not. Sorry


I see you know your judo well... Edit: Yay, my first reddit silver. Thank you kind stranger.


Just trying to enjoy a succulent feline meal


Did a CAT really steal your pancake?


Mine stole my jalapeno turkey burger from carl's jr when I wasn't looking, so pancake seems possible.


Dog really said: # THERE'S A CAT I CAN NANNY!!


There's a cat I can maul*


That's the joke. People call pitbulls "nanny dogs" and those people are fucking idiots.


That dog owner needs to train her fuxking dog


Why are you being downvoted? It’s true. Don’t get a large dog you’re not going to train and have control over.


Same shit dog owners that have bad dogs they minimize their behavior. What if she had children in there and the dog knocked them over? What if she was an elderly or disabled person and had to watch a dog trash her home and kill her pets. I’m a dog owner and allergic to cats but I only own big Rottweilers and Pitbulls and I train them to the max because I never want them to hurt anyone or anything they aren’t trained for. Sad. About the down votes


Curious, why do so many people record their living rooms 24/7?


yeah especially since there is always a risk of some back door there are so many videos online where someones IP camera got "hacked" aka they didn't change the default password and got recorded doing very private things not just gigabytes, but terrabytes upon terrabytes of videos


How are the cats doing now? They must be traumatized that their home was invaded. Not the black one on the cat tower - he seemed completely unfazed.


This was on Saturday, by Sunday they were all alright! They were all so terrified since home is usually a quiet safe space, but they're back to normal now thankfully


Poor little kitties. I’m glad they’re okay now. (Your neighbor better pay for your screen and window if that needs repair.)




I’m getting anxiety watching this.


look at the reaction time..get some scouters in here! Loved how your first reaction was to tackle him


That foot wrapping around his neck 🤣 I assume that's a yoga matt on the floor, seeing as you're that flexible 🧘🏻‍♀️


Yes, I had dance performances all weekend so the mat is for stretching post-gig!


Awesome job 💪🏻 fuck the ignorant ass Redditors in here too


Can I ask why you have a camera set up like that in your house? Are you worried about getting robbed? I just don’t feel like I would want my living room being recorded like this.


We originally got it for peace of mind when we're out of town. It notifies us if a smoke detector goes off, if there's a loud noise (like someone breaking in), and it lets us check in on the cats to see that they're alright. We used to turn it off when we were home but honestly we just stopped caring. The footage writes over itself in 24 hours, so we can save anything important and forget about it otherwise


Not gonna lie, the leg work to pin the dog without hurting them was quite impressive. Updoots to you.


Thats not a dirty home. Thats a productive person trying to manage time. You ‘people’ miss the point of this post and are silly and have bad deductive skills. To assume is to make an ass out of u and me. Ass u me.


I’ve yet to see anyone complain about the messy home.


Please sign with the Cowboys. Micah Parsons could use the help to pressure the QB.


Do you do BJJ? That leglock tho


Thats just crazy. This dog would definitely hurt or kill your cat, you're a hero, quick reaction! But this dog needs to be constantly on a leash and wear a muzzle, it's just insane...




The more I watch this, the funnier it gets! Between the completely calm cat, the dog wagging his tail, and your leg wrap around the dog, this is just hilarious. You can tell the pup is a good boy. Having cats of my own, I am totally guessing your cats were taunting him and he said enough was enough. Lol! In all seriousness though, people need to get a grip and stop using instagram home photos as an ideal for actual cleanliness. Clutter does not always equal messy and besides, organized chaos feels a lot comfier (to me anyway) than some Stepford wife looking instagram house that has white and cream as the only two choice colors and a couch that looks like they never used it once since they purchased it. This house looks comfy and you owe nobody an explaination. Anyway, good job catching the pup!


The cat on the perch is very unimpressed with the whole matter


Nice catch


Absolutely buzzing after noticing that we watched the entire thing go down with your black cat


The best part is the cat that's lounging up by the camera.


Sorry your neighbors never took the time to train their dog. Nice catch though!


Can’t believe how fast you were. Thanks for explaining.


Here to say your home looks lived in and I'm glad I'm not the only one that goes through cycles of cleaning to within an inch of my life and literally not giving a single fuck and living in my own mess till I've the time to care again. Life is busy, houses are meant to look like this.


Or MMA! That story is crazy. I'm glad you and your cats were okay.
