A Brooklyn bodega cat proved no match for a giant rat with a bad attitude.

A revolting video courtesy of ViralHog has emerged capturing a tense standoff between a pair of four-legged foes on the mean streets of the Big Apple.

The minute-long cellphone footage recorded on September 19 begins with a black cat leisurely reposing on the sidewalk beside a cardboard box at a Brooklyn fruit market when it is confronted by a massive gray rat.

if the cat had pounced on the rat months earlier it wouldn’t pose the threat that it does today

Same with militant threats attacking our civilians

.177cal pellet/BB gun would dispatch that rat, real fast.

Cats are no match for a large rat. There is a dog called the rat terrier that was bred just for hunting and killing rats. There are rat terrier clubs in New York City that go hunting rats to this day.

Maybe I can rent snakes in NYC. Catch pythons in Florida and take them to NYC. Rats like that would be like hors d’oeuvre. The snakes would die in the winter. Bring more in for spring. The franchise opportunities in Democrat controlled cities would be money makers.

The cat moved because the rat got around behind it. Considering the cat “swatted” and didn’t use its claws or teeth, these two may have played before. Or the cat had no interest in a fight to the death. I wouldn’t say the rat “won”.

My take as well . . .

They seemed familiar, maybe even budz.

I noticed that Scat wasn’t intimidated by the gawkers though.

We have a ratter. Absolutely GREAT dog!

Living on a farm, we used to get occasional infestations of Norway rats.

With our trusty ratter, that just doesn’t happen anymore.

There aren’t many chipmunks, squirrels or rabbits around anymore, either.

;)

Could work, combo nighttime store security and rat patrol.

But the story about the old lady, that swallowed the spider to catch the fly...
Did not end well for her.

They need a cat with a “laser beam” strapped to its head.

Or maybe just a sea bass.

Has NYC Mayor De Blasio brought “Gender X” also to the city's cats?

My grandfather used to tell me that one skunk is worth a half-a-dozen cats when it comes to eliminating rats in a barn.

Might also put the shooter in jail as well. NYC is death on weapons.

The cat is only a half-grown kitten. It’s not fair to blame the novice hunter, a kitten, for lack of success with a large and mean street rat. My late great kitty Kefira was named for her mouse killing propensity. While confined to my kitchen as a kitten, Kefira found a mouse (I moved out of that building, the walls were full of mice) and turned it into mincemeat, didn’t just kill it. “Kefira” means “little lioness” in Hebrew, so she was aptly named.

It’s air-pumped, no cartridges or bullets. Not classed as a firearm by BATF, but probably is by the NYC lib-dolts.
