A video showing a tiny house cat sizing up a massive lion has gone viral.
The video uploaded to YouTube by Derek Krahn shows Baggy engaging in a stare-down with Noey, a lion, at The Centre for Animal Research and Education in Texas, US. It's a classic David vs Goliath situation, except the two are separated by a wire fence, and they're cats. Minor differences.
One can see, in the video, that Baggy challenges Noey fearlessly, never once faltering, even in the face of discouraging commentary from Derek. She continues on her quest of showing Noey who's the real boss kitty, even as Derek pleads with her to abort the mission.
Baggy’s owner, BigCatDerek, wrote in the video’s description that his cat has always been tough, but even he was surprised when she chased after the lion this way.
“Baggy the housemeow has always been a tough, little cookie, but I never thought she was this degree of crazy. All is well, everything settled, and her and Noey (the lion) are back on speaking terms,” he wrote.
