Don’t mess with cats unless you’re ready to face the wrath of the Internet!
Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard are being accused of animal abuse after the parents-to-be posted a video of the 25-year-old accountant nearly hitting a cat while “sledding with friends” over the weekend.

In the video, the dad-to-be does shout out, “Move, cat,” before brother-in-law Ben Seewald gives him a push down the hill — aimed directly at the cat.
In the background, Jill can be heard cheering — unfortunately, the same can’t be said about many ‘19 Kids and Counting’ fans who have watched the Instagram video.

“Poor cat. Very gross you treat helpless creatures like that. Shame on you,” one commenter wrote. Another added, “I guess ‘sanctity of life’ doesn’t extend to cats?”
Some fans defended Derick — saying the cat was ultimately unharmed, and he wasn’t purposely trying to hurt the animal in any way.
What do you think — does Derick deserve all the flack he’s receiving? Sound off in the comments!
