Bizarre footage has emerged of a giant rat defying nature by attacking a pack of feral street cats in Russia, when one of the cats refused to leave the rat alone. The proverb “curiosity killed the cat” is used to warn of the dangers of unnecessary investigation or experimentation and that fits perfectly in this story.
Apparently in Russia, cats should watch their back because there are giant rats lurking in the shadows waiting to make the first move. This video features one funny incident when a giant rat went crazy attacking a bunch of street cats, leaving them puzzled.
The outnumbered rat had to come up with a good game plan in order to survive when he got himself into a situation where he was surrounded by a pack of cats. First, he tried to go unnoticed and camouflaged himself in the environment by playing dead, not moving a muscle and not breathing, hoping that the cats will eventually leave and let him be.
However, one of the cats was very unwavering and invaded rat’s privacy by investigating his body, sniffing around. The rat had no other choice but to be brave and go attack mode on the curious cat, and her buddies watching from the distance.
It is funny how, being five times smaller in size, the rat managed to somehow get the courage up and attack the cats in an attempt to escape. His sweet escape didn’t go so well since the same cat continued to follow him around.
When the rat was backed into a corner and had nowhere else to go, it had to pull some serious kung-fu skills, jumping and hissing at the cat. The was left puzzled and confused, and had to retreat. The rat wins!
