    Smile I have heard of cat and dog, but.........

    I saw this and thought that it might amuse?

    We have all heard of "Cat and Dog" and even "Cat and Mouse", but cat and bear?

    EDIT: The bear is at the top of the tree, the cat is the small ginger blob at the bottom. He is a marmelade tabby.

    LOL, that is one bear that's going to be ostracized by his kin. A tabby? Afraid of a housecat? He should go into the witness protection program for his own good.

    Cats can be very protective indeed.. There are lots of stories about cats attacking burglars.. Forget about German shepherds, get a cat

    I have a somewhat large cat however it is quite a placid one. That tabby must have small cat syndrome :/

    To be honest with you guys, having thought it through, I think I can offer a plausible explanation?

    1.The bear appears to be young...... maybe 100-120lbs?
    2. It would have been foraging with its mom?
    3. It wandered off?
    4. It knew it was in other animals' territory?
    5. It encountered an aggressive animal it had never encountered before?
    6. It did not know the enemy's potential, so it took a wise course of action?
    7. It ran back to find mom?

    Bears give rattlesnakes a healthy regard................ and nothing will mess with a Wolverine?

    Just my thoughts
