Everyone seems to agree it’s one of the best wrestling videos to hit the internet. One person posted: "I just saw a video of three kittens play fighting in a tiny wrestling ring. I would be way more interested in trying out wrestling if that's what it was."
Meanwhile, another commented: "No one's listening to the referee."
The film shows two of the cute kittens clawing and nibbling each other’s faces, while the ginger kitty watches and tries to get in on the action. Some fans of the video commented that Ashley should have an announcers table alongside the mini wrestling area.
Rascal, Teeny and Tiny
The kittens named Rascal, Teeny and Tiny grappled each other fiercely and sent one of them flying off the side. The cute little kitty cats were six weeks old when Ashley filmed their wrestling debut, but in our opinion, they were already wrestling like pros!
