Serious Cat Chase

Someone attached a tiny camera on their cat's collar, which is always pretty interesting, at least if you know the cat. This one captures a dramatic encounter with another cat that starts with a challenge and then proceeds into a dizzying chase scene. No, you won't be able to keep up with the target because you do not instinctually chase small moving targets through the wilderness like a cat is born to do. You can hear the camera-cat begin to breathe heavily, but he is not giving up. The only winner is the camera owner, because the got a viral video out of the incident. So far, this video has racked up 50 million views on Twitter and another 50 million on TikTok. (via Digg)

I don't understand why Camera Cat(CC) was so persistent. Did Pursued Cat(PC) do something beyond trespassing? Kill CCs father, knock up CCs sister, join the Crips or Bloods? Chasing food is one thing but this smells of vendetta.

Zozozo Bruce is obviously influenced by TC (Top Cat) who was socially subdued by OD (Officer Durble ... yeah Dribble, thats what I said).

In real life cats, even my sweet cake ones, are vicious and evil mini lions and tigers, exquisite examples of physicality, contoured by muscles and taut sinew, focussed by slit eyed laser optics.

My cartoon cute KitKat, a wee queen spotted tabby with a black underside, born under my bed some 4 years ago now, will spend a tense 2 hours waiting by a cupboard door if she thinks she heard some form of life in there and now wants to kill it ... for no reason other than pure hate ... she will not eat anything she kills, preferring the served up contents of canned wet pet food.

The shown cat chase can be used as an example of the mammalian need to protect one's territory.
That need is strong in all animals, be they cats, elephants, dogs, mice and humans.
Picture the American defence forces.

That reminds me, I need to put up a bigger fence around my property.

I've had enough cats indoors and out to see them spar and chase dozens of times but never seen a chase longer than a minute and seldom that long. Chases after prey seldom over 30 seconds before regroup and plan a second attack if the prey reveals itself again.
