So the alligators climb ashore in what appears to be a busy recreation area, and they are not small alligators, either–it does make you wonder why the humans don’t back way off. For those who don’t know, alligators are able to put on a burst of high speed at very short notice. If you’re standing too close, ol’ hoss, you ain’t gettin’ away.
And along comes a cat–a cat, mind you!–and bullies both gators back into the water.
How does he do it? There’s no physical contact. It looks like kitty just gives the gators the bad eye until they get the message and retreat.
Confidence is everything, I guess.
(P.S.–I am typing this without it hurting my fingers. A good sign, I pray.)
