Brave House Cat Challenges Lion at Texas Animal Sanctuary

The Bridgeport, Texas Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE) was the site of an unusual standoff between a housecat and a lioness. Captured on video, Baggy the cat challenges Noey the lioness through the bars of her cage.

The animals cared for at the Texas Animal Sanctuary come from many exotic and faraway places. Some were abused, abandoned or bred to be exotic pets before CARE rescued them. Other animals were unwanted by collectors and some were sent from other smaller facilities that needed help in housing them. CARE is the last stop for these abused creatures and it is here where they receive an outpouring of love and care.

Baggy’s adorable challenge promotes the mission of this Texas Animal Sanctuary

The cat’s attempt to intimidate the lion is as adorable as it is so absurd. Her owner laughs as  he records her: “Baggy You will lose,” and “Baggy, abort! There’s nothing to be gained, Baggy!” The encounter indirectly symbolizes the purpose of the sanctuary, which is to stand up to the abuse these exotic animals face despite their size and ferocity.

CARE relies entirely on support from the public as it receives no funding from any government agency. Baggy may well become the new spokes-cat for this amazing Texas Animal Sanctuary.

Way to go, Baggy. Stay strong, and you too, Noey!
