Cats Who Think They’re Cyrano de Bergerac

Cat vs. bear–who would win? The bears in this video don’t stick around to find out.

Really, what could be more insanely bold than a cat chasing a bear? You thought Cyrano de Bergerac was brave? Maybe he learned it from his cats.

  1. When you think about it, cats are pretty formidable little creatures. They are brave, lightning fast, and most importantly, unpredictable. To a wild animal, who probably hasn’t read the Wikipedia page about cats, a house cat must be somewhat scary. My cat is gentle, affectionate and good natured, but when there’s a difference of opinion, even though she only weighs 8 pounds, she can be a handful to deal with. I’m amazed by her strength, and even more amazed by her tenacity. Running off a bear? Kitten’s play. 🙂

    1. A house cat can usually be (temporarily) controlled by holding them away from you, with both hands around their chest, feet pointed outward, but they will squirm their way out of even this. I don’t believe that a house cat could kill a human, but they can definitely cause injury. The thing is, they are pretty docile, if you know their rules. Ultimately, cats do their own thing, pretty much all the time. With an 8 pound feline, this is not much of a problem, but I would never recommend a Bengal Tiger as a pet. BTW, my cat does not realize that she isn’t a Bengal Tiger. 🙂

    2. Robbie doesn’t like being picked up and smooched, she tries to avoid it; but once she’s caught, there’s no risk to us humans.
      Peep used to hiss at me after I came home from taking Robbie to the vet. Like I’d just done something very wrong.

    3. My cat has very limited patience with being held. She’ll indulge me a few seconds, then she wriggles until I put her down.
