Raccoon Gets a Jump-Scare from a Cat Who Thinks He’s Chuck Norris
I've heard it said that it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog. That principle works for cats, too and I can prove it with a raccoon who got the jump-scare of his life thanks to a feline who is convinced he's Chuck Norris.
You can thank Ring doorbells for this fun, viral pet moment. Their backstory is fun and informative:
Dennis set up a Ring Stick Up Cam to keep track of his adventurous 9-year-old cat, Lilly. But he says his “cat cam” often picks up other animals, including skunks, foxes, mice and other cats. He says he got a kick out of watching the raccoon snoop around his back porch and then get startled by Lilly.
Lilly the cat = Fierce Chuck Norris intimidation animal. Watch.
There has been much mystery about where this cat vs raccoon moment happened since Ring doorbell makes no mention, but through much detective work, I've tracked it back to a video shared by USA Today that shows it was captured in Caledon East in Canada. That's the same place the wildfire smoke came from that made our skies in Missouri and Illinois hazy last week.
The good news is that no cats or raccoons (or humans) were harmed in the making of this video. Just one raccoon who will now be a bit more careful which windows he snoops in. Chuck Norris approves little kitty. Keep being the fierce defender you are.
