Internet Laughing at Wise Rat Who Played Dead to Escape the Cat

Rats and mice are afraid of cats – that’s a fact that might have a few exceptions but holds true on most occasions.

Even without prior training, cats know by instinct that they should catch rats and mice. With their sharp claws and nimble bodies, cats find it easy to catch these smaller creatures.

Again, there are exceptions to the rule; and there are times when cats just don’t really care about the pesky little creatures or that these smaller ones are more clever than the felines and are able to escape without so much as a scratch on their lithe bodies.

Recently, one such rat made it big on social media after escaping death in the claws on a cat by doing something that no one expected it would do: play dead!

Now creatures like opossums regularly do this play dead thing to survive but this is probably the first recorded case of a rat using this survival mechanism to escape real death.

The video was quite funny, actually, because the rat even checks if the cat is still looking – most likely so it could stop playing dead and run away as fast as its little legs could carry!

The clip did not show the exact moment that the cat caught the rat but it seemed to be staring at a dead rat. Score: 1 cat, 0 rat.

But everything is not what it seems because the clever rat is actually just pretending to be dead. For the next few moments, this clever creature would take a peek to see if the cat was still on guard. Seeing that the cat was still there, the rat remained in ‘dead’ position. Score: 1 cat, 1 rat.

Whoever made this video did not really show the outcome of the cat-and-mouse situation but we could only guess that the cat caught the rat moving and pounced on it! Oooops.

In these days of school presentations and talent shows as the school year ends, a lot of parents are posting photos and videos of their children participating in the activities but there are just kids who stand out from all the rest because of their unique abilities or cute but hilarious actions.

Take for example this adorable kid who most likely experienced stage fright. The kid happens to be from a kindergarten somewhere in China.

Just a few seconds into the presentation, this girl began crying. That’s a common occurrence in many presentations – just ask any teacher or parent who has ever been to a similar activity – but this kid is different.

As you can see in the video below, the little girl bawls her heart out but despite crying hard, she continues dancing. What is actually more adorable with this one is that she knows the dance moves and sequence better than the other kids; thus, she gave the best performance of all, despite crying her heart out as well! Cute, isn’t she?

The video, as expected, quickly went viral on Chinese social media and later to other parts of the internet.

A lot of people just loved this adorable little girl and her stellar performance despite the wealth of sad emotions she’s displaying. Others also made jokes and even made memes about this cute little Chinese girl.

No one could really tell what she was crying about but it was most likely just stage fright.

Someone joked, however, that this girl was actually crying because she was ‘forced’ to perform with amateurs who didn’t know how to dance – anyone would surely be as exasperated as she would be if that happens to them, right? LOL.

What can you say about this crying but dancing girl?

Shopping is a fun activity for most people. Window-shopping gives people the chance to see new arrivals or check items on sale. Especially if you don’t have enough money to afford the things that you want to buy before shopping, it is a good alternative for shoppers.

Window-shopping helps you feel less stressed and more relaxed. However, what will you do if you meet an alligator while walking down the streets?

The Surprise Visitor

An alligator decided to do a little bit of window shopping at a Flagler Beach strip mall while it is on its way from one retention pond to another.

Denise Nichols-Gearhardt is working at a consignment and antique store named “Junque in the Trunk” when she suddenly spotted the alligator outside. She pulled out her phone to record the big visitor.

The company is currently expanding in the strip mall and Nichols-Gearhardt says that she’s showing some customers the space they were moving into. After looking through the glass, she spotted the alligator’s reflection. The plaza has retention ponds on either side and the alligator appeared to be using the sidewalk as a shortcut to move to the other pond.

Since she’s a native Floridian, she said that she knew not to startle it and just to get out of its way. She directed the customers to walk calmly into their cars or go back to the store.

They got into their vehicle and I went into the store.

Enjoying Itself

Nichols-Gearhardt started filming the alligator’s journey from one side of the strip mall to the other. She also called the Flagler Beach Police for back-up. They even joked that the gator is trying to take a donut from the shop.

The alligator, seeing the reflection in the door of America’s Donuts tapped his nose against the door… We joke that he was trying to get a donut!

The police also helped keep people away from the gator as it made its way into the next pond. According to them, it is not the first time that alligators have been spotted moving between the ponds. Nichols-Gearhardt also felt lucky to have spotted the reptile before it made its way into her shop.

I had the door to the store open all day … If I wouldn’t have walked outside and saw him he probably would have ended up inside.

Alligator does 'window shopping' in Flagler Beach

See ya later alligator! When this reptile decided to do a little "window shopping" outside the consignment antique mall Junque in the Trunk Flagler Beach, Florida, Denise Nichols-Gearhardt pulled out her phone to record the visitor. "I am a native Floridian, and am not spooked by them, but I do know not to startle them and to get out of their way!" she said. STORY: http://bit.ly/2Fidj8i
