Wild animals be warned: Domestic house cats mean business.

When a huge black bear approached the sliding glass door of a home in Alaska on Sunday, a 2-year-old domestic house cat, Nani, watched the bear from a crouched position. When the bear got too close, she pounced - and there's video to prove it:

"She's really such a fraidy-cat most of the time," her human, Darlis Elliott told local news station KTUU. "I don't know what got into her. She probably wouldn't have lunged if we weren't standing right behind her."
