When you see someone bigger coming towards you and they look threatening, your instinct is to run away and not look back. But, that wasn’t the case for one cat who had an encounter with several deer.
This cat proved why they say felines have nine lives.
Someone happened to be outside and of course, had their camera ready when several deer start slowly walking down a driveway. The person taking the video from afar probably thought they were just getting some cool shots of deer. He may not have even paid too much attention to the lonely cat at the end of the driveway and what was going to happen next.
The video starts off pretty normal with some deer just doing their thing, but when they get to the end of the driveway, they notice a little friend.
The little cat is minding his own business but then realizes he has some company.
The deer leading the pack stops dead in his tracks as does the cat when the first two meet eyes. All of the deer behind him stop as well, turning around to each other probably wanting to know why their little walk has come to a halt.
The deer in the front starts walking slowly and sizing up this frisky feline. The cat is holding his own, giving a staredown as well.
The deer starts to come closer and that’s when the cat has had enough and takes off.
The cat stops in the middle of the street as the deer comes closer. His friends start moving in too. They must have gotten the all-clear that is was good to move. The cat starts taking a few steps forward, but so do the deer.
Luckily there was a car nearby and the cat ran under it.
There’s something to be said for being tiny. The deer didn’t have that advantage and could only bend to see where their little friend went.
The cat stays under the car for a while, probably hoping the deer would just get bored and walk away. No such luck!
The cat ventures out from underneath the car only to see the deer are still around.
She sticks to the edge of the road near the bushes, hoping to make a getaway but these deer don’t seem like they’re going to let up anytime soon. A couple of them start moving closer and look like they may want to get aggressive.
The cat keeps moving, watching her back. She’s one smart cat. The animals have a brief staring contest before the cat shakes a leg and starts moving.
He makes a run for it!
You can see a few of the deer thinking about running after him and continuing this game, but then they slow down and just hang out in the road before the video ends.
Kudos to this kitty who held his own. This video could have ended a lot differently if it wasn’t for his quick thinking. It just goes to show you that bigger animals don’t always win!
