Actually I study animal management and I think you'll find it does!

"The ASPCA urges cat owners to never pick their little ones up by the scruff, whether the pet is a tiny kitten or a full-grown adult. The Humane Society of Greenwood notes that mother cats exclusively are capable of doing this in the correct manner. If you decide to emulate the mother cat method, you may end up just causing you're pet unnecessary pain and discomfort. Not good at all. The main effects of grabbing a cat by the scruff are just those -- pain, discomfort and perhaps even some confusion.
If you try to pick you're cat up by the scruff, you may notice her squirming frantically in an attempt to break loose -- yikes."

And even adult cats do that kind of stuff: A male cat bites the female cat's neck in order to keep her calm, so that he can gently launch his red rocket.
But I think you should not grab a grown cat their and carry it with you like that.. But it works good.

It's part of their nature. The mother cat would pick them up by the scruff of their neck and move them around. It'd stop their squirming so they would be able to be moved easier. That clip is essentially the same thing.

Not just so they would be easier to move, but also so that the mother doesn't accidentally bite their neck and kill them.

That's only if you don't know what you're doing and are touched in the head. You shouldn't do it unless needed to, but it's not going to hurt them if you do it properly.

It soothes them. It does not hurt them. It mimics how their mothers would carry them when they were little.

This is an instinct in felines for the reason that when they are kittens, their mothers carry them by the scruff of their back, and their instinct in that position is to remain still, usually for the cats safety, so when you simulate this, it has the same effect

Is this legit? I heard that if you catch cat like this, it paralyses him but I don't know if it's true... what exactly happens when you grab cat like this and does it work for all cats (meaning tigers and lions as well).

Yeah, I remember reading somewhere that the mother cat picks up her kittens by the scruff of their neck (using her mouth), and the kitten 'automatically' keeps still so that it's mum can move it around like that.

Or. Hear me out here. Orrrrr It's from when they were little kittens their moms carry them by the extra skin on their necks and they don't move because they were carried like that when they were little.
