The scene takes place in Luxembourg in 2018. A cat spots a rat in the street and starts to stalk its prey…so far so normal.

But things take a surprising turn when the rat refuses to be bested by the feline and stands up for itself.

Rat attack

Indeed, the rat stands up on his hind legs, making himself taller, and jumping forward onto his enemy. The cat, surprised at this show of courage, steps back. And though at first he remains perplexed, he soon realises that he’s no match for the raging rodent.

The rat doesn’t give up, lunging over and over at the cat, and ultimately chasing him away. The most impressive thing is that the rat doesn’t stop, even when the cat runs away – he continues to run after him, across streets and along pathways, until his attacker learns his lesson.

Lessons learned

In fact – we all can learn a lesson from this incredible video. Don’t make the mistake of messing with those you believe are weaker than you; they may end up proving to the world that you're the...'scaredy cat'.
