When a cat meets a herd of deer who, for some unknown reason, are just wandering down the street — an inter-species standoff of hilarious, if not epic proportions ensues. You can witness the whole delightfully awkward encounter in this viral video, which has now been viewed more than 1.3 million times on YouTube.
And that’s just for this version. If you go to this link you can see the same video, except with dialogue for the deer dubbed in by British comedian Chris Cohen. Definitely watch the raw, un-dubbed version first right here. The voice-over version will be funnier that way.
We’ve brought you videos demonstrating incredible inter-species friendships before. But this cat vs. deer video proves things don’t always work out that way. But the really amusing thing about this video is watching the chess game between the outnumbered cat and the cautious but curious deer as they each try to figure out who’s got the upper hand in this showdown.
In the end, we think, the cat makes the right decision.
