A Tough Little Street Rat Chases The Boldly Inquisitive Cat Who Started The Chase In The First Place

We all know the classic cartoon dichotomy — from Tom and Jerry to Itchy and Scratchy to Sylvester and that mouse he always is a kangaroo but is NOT a kangaroo. Cat chases mouse. Of course in a cartoon, mouse causes trouble for cat.

But in this footage captured in Luxemburg, an inquisitive cat saw something move across the street and immediately trotted over to investigate. Upon discovering it was a rat, the cat began the chase. This tough little rat, however, turned right around and instead became the chaser instead of the one being chased, nipping at the poor kittie’s heels all around the streets.
