Tortie cat finds her way into the zoo and has epic stare-down with some meerkats (Gallery)
A cat recently found her way into the Chester Zoo in England and wandered up to the meerkat enclosure. She got some VERY strong reactions.
"She was in the bushes then when I sat down to get some lower angle photos she came running over for attention," reddit user Tim Furfie shared.
"Opposite the meerkat enclosure at the Chester Zoo is an open field so I assume that is where the cat got in," Furfie told The Dodo. "The zoo is very close to houses so I imagine the cat belongs to one of those."
At first, the cat wasn't all that interested in the meerkats and was focused on getting pets from the guests instead — but the meerkats noticed the cat right away.
"The meerkats were very inquisitive and more and more made their way over. Then the cat got rather inquisitive too, and it was prowling up and down the glass enclosure watching them follow it," Furfie said.
But the meeting was quite short, because the meerkats must have realized that this kitty was a mini panther, and they began to hiss at the tortie.
The tortie dashed away into the bushes to return from wherever she came from.
Her whereabouts and home remain a mystery, as she seems well fed and looks to have a collar. I bet her owners would be shocked to know that their little girl likes to go to the zoo when she's bored.
This will likely be a meeting that the tortie, and the meerkats, never forget.
