One curious feline got more than he bargained for when he tried to catch an octopus for what seemed like an easy dinner. It turned out that the marine creature was unlike anything the cat had face before.
A bunch of the eight-tentacle marine animals were being kept in a paddling pool when the cat, as inquisitive as any feline, trotted over for a closer inspection.
It all looked well, so the feline went for one of the creature, plucking it out of the pool. However, the octopus fought back, wrapping all of its eight arms around the attacker’s face.
Startled by the fierce resistance, the cat backed away, not knowing how to shake the thing off its head.
After a lengthy struggle, the octopus eventually lost its grip on its attacker’s face and fell off.
Regaining his confidence, the cat went in for the kill, while the octopus was lying motionless on the floor.
But before it could enjoy his hard-fought dinner, his human intervened and saved the octopus’ life.
1. The octopus clings on to the cats’ face for dear life after being pulled from a pool of saltwater.
2. The cat backs off, trying to shake the octopus from its face. The octopus eventually lets go.
3. Now it’s the cat’s turn not to let go of the octopus as a passer-by tries to separate the pair.
4. The feline did win the struggle, but could not savor the prize.
