Kitten and puppy engage in cute combat

Straits Times Animal Antics

A kitten keeps bounding around a puppy, trying to get it to join in the playful tackling in this one-and-a-half minute video. 

The dog seems far from interested in entertaining the cat, but the grey feline perseveres and looks for opportunities to engage it.

The two furballs stop wrestling after a while, the kitten finally giving it a rest.

The clip has received nearly 46,000 likes so far but some viewers comment that it was cruel to let the kitten hurt the puppy in that way.

Do you think it's playfulness or cruelty?
