The feline character loves a challenge, even if it mimics in its own unique way the biblical standoff between David and Goliath. (And let’s remember who is said to have won that one!) A few days ago, one brave kitten named Baggy confronted a huge lioness named Noey through the bars on her cage on the grounds of this Texas animal sanctuary. The cat’s owner, Derek Krahn, aka You Tube user, BigCatDerek, captured the amusing incident for all to see on video. He refers to Baggy as his “house-meow,” and his footage shows the cat marching right up to the lioness’s cage and staring her down.
