Most oft he time when a cat catches a chipmunk, it doesn’t end well for the chipmunk. However, Tiger the cat learned the hard way that not all chipmunks are easy prey.

Tiger apparently caught a chipmunk and then let it go. Instead of bolting for safety, the chipmunk turned around and attacked the startled cat. Only after attacking the cat did the chipmunk finally flee to safety.

If you always root for the underdog, you can watch a chipmunk fighting back against a cat that almost ate it for dinner.
