‘Scaredy-cat’ is a very common expression, but the expression doesn’t really make that much sense when you think about it. Most cats are fearless — they’ll climb tall heights, hiss at people and animals twice their size, and generally go through life with a devil may care attitude.

One cat proved how unafraid felines are when he faced not one but two alligators!

This brave cat is named Mugsy. He didn’t hesitate for a moment to step up to two fearsome alligators in order to protect a human. And his courageous rescue was all caught on video.

The video begins with a human walking by the alligator. That’s when Mugsy swoops in to make sure the human is safe from the alligator who is creeping up on the shore.

He starts a fierce standoff with the alligator. He and the alligator are head to head.

“Wow, isn’t that interesting,” says someone off camera who is watching the intense interaction.

That’s when the cat makes a daring dart toward the alligator to intimidate him.

And it works! The alligator takes a few steps back not wanting to suffer the wrath of Mugsy.

“Unbelievable, oh my God,” says the viewer. “Don’t get too close. He’s scared of the cat.”

Apparently, the term should be “scared alligator.”

“The cat has no fear,” the viewer says.

At this point, Mugsy is just cold staring into the alligator’s face making the alligator shrink back. Eventually, the terrifying cat was too much for the alligator to handle and he cowered back into the water.

“Oh wow,” said the man. “That cat showed him.”

But it wasn’t over. The alligator came back out of the water. This time with a friend to gang up on Mugsy. Mugsy did not flinch. Mugsy doesn’t play that.

Actually, he was kind of angry that the alligator was brave enough to face him. That’s when Mugsy charged right at the reptile and swatted him with his paw causing the alligator to retreat back into the water.

Mugsy then walked up to a boy to get some cuddles.

“Crazy, look at him he’s a friendly cat but aggressive with the alligator. It’s the most amazing thing,” the man says before telling a friend that he ‘s missed “the most amazing thing.”

Mugsy sure told off those alligators, and we’re sure they’ll leave his humans alone. It’s amazing to watch this cat in action and to see just how scared of him the alligators are. What a hero.
