Cornered Kitten Scares Off Puppies Without Lifting a Paw

If looks could kill, these puppies might be goners! Watch them scamper away from a puffed-up kitty with an adorable fighting stance.

You know what they say about curiosity and cats? Well, we think the same could go for puppies, except we don’t like to go as far as “curiosity killed the cat.” It’s more like, “curiosity gave the cat a good scare” — or gave the puppies a good scare, as the case may be.

Which is exactly what these precocious puppies find out when they try to mess with a courageous kitten!

While it looks like the puppies mean no harm and just want to play, the kitten is obviously not interested, and backs away into a corner. The puppies keep a respectful distance, but the kitten does not want to participate — at all! So she huffs and she puffs, with her back arched and her tail straight. One by one the obtuse puppies finally get the hint and scamper off, visibly intimidated by the kitten. The good part? They never have to exchange blows to get each other’s points across.

If only all confrontations operated this way! If one party was just like, “Hey, you’re in my space,” and the other party was like, “Oh, okay, cool, we’ll leave you alone,” it would be a much more peaceful world.
