This cat may not play the keyboard or look particularly grumpy, but a 30-second trail-cam clip of its standoff with a gator in the Florida Keys is a feline video sensation that we can get behind.

A remote camera with a motion- and heat-sensing mechanism was triggered in the National Key Deer Refuge when the domestic cat got a little too close to an alligator, according to the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges Complex on Facebook, where the clip has had nearly 2 million views. Keep an eye on that sliver of scaly tail in the bottom-right corner, and watch what happens next.
