Cats don't like to take a lot of shit. If you ask them, they're the ones who rule the household, the backyard, the world, etc. Even something super scary and imposing - like say, an alligator - might not phase a cat. Cats are pretty badass.
In fact, we have have found the most badass cat of all in an incredible 2014 video. This guy wanders next to a swampy area where a whole bunch of alligators are just hanging out, and instead of keeping a safe distance ... he walks right up to one of the toothy animals.
