This is one housecat who is not afraid of a bigger beast on its turf!
On Derek Krahn’s Big Cat Derek Youtube channel, he recently introduced Baggy the cat to the world. Baggy is a cat living at Texas’ Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE), a long-term care, research and education center for exotic animals.
Krahn is the facility’s operations director and said that Baggy wasn’t meant for webcasting… Baggy immediately proceeded to prove him wrong by punching above his weight.
He was shocked to see that Baggy makes a run at Noey the lion. The cat immediately squares up to his bigger rival as you hear Krahn warning, “You will lose.”
But this fierce house cat can’t listen to the haters, especially when his camera-presence has been insulted.
Baggy was undeterred from Krahn’s suggestions. “Baggy abort, there’s nothing to be gained, Baggy.”
So what’s the lesson of the story? Don’t underestimate a house cat, because they will go full David vs Goliath to prove a point!
This Bridgeport, Texas facility cares for animals that have been “abused, abandoned, or bred to be exotic pets … Others were retired from shows and traveling, sent from other facilities that needed help, or were simply unwanted by private collectors.
“At CARE, Baggy isn’t short on animals to intimidate. The facility cares for mountain lions, African lions, tigers, black and spotted leopards, bobcats, ringtail lemurs, llamas, and a coati.
The good news is that Baggy and Noey are back on speaking terms now.
