- A short clip of a giant rat attacking a group of cats had gone viral
- The cats reacted by screaming, jumping, and running away from the crazed rat
- Netizens believe that the rat is infected with a parasite that causes insanity
A video of a giant rat fighting four cats in an alley had gone viral, with netizens shocked at the fearlessness of the rodent.
The video starts with the rat moving slowly towards a group of cats resting in an alley. Most rats would stay away as soon as they sensed a cat nearby.
But instead of running away, the rat proceeded to attack the group of alley cats! The huge rat can be seen in the video trying to bite and jump at the faces of the much bigger cats.
Another surprising thing about the video is the reaction of the cats towards the crazy rat. Instead of using their superior size and strength to overpower the rodent, the cats seemed to be in complete shock and scared out of their wits by the sudden attack from the violent rat.
Obviously, the rat was not able to completely defeat the cats, but it definitely embarrassed them and earned their respect.
Naturally, netizens were shocked by what they saw.
“Aren't cats supposed to attack rats, not the other way around?” a netizen asked
One online user said that the cats’ hunting skills are not sharp enough to kill the giant rat.
“Those cats lacked some hunter instincts,” the netizen posted.
One netizen had a more scientific explanation for what happened between the cats and the crazy giant rat.
“Toxoplasma-filled rat brain, most likely. The cats were [lucky] not to eat that,” the online user wrote.
Toxoplasma in the brain causes insanity in rats and mice, making them lose their fear of cats. These infected animals might even become attracted to cat odor.
