- A housecat named Tigger went viral on TikTok for its encounter with a black bear.
- Video showed the kitty walking down the much larger bear, scaring it out of the homeowner’s driveway.
- The cat’s owner said he tried to call the feline away from the bear, but Tigger held his ground.
The average black bear can weigh anywhere from 90 to 660 pounds. The average housecat weighs between 8.8 and 11 pounds.
So it would really be no contest should the two animals ever decide to go at one another.
Not that a Bengal housecat named Tigger is bothered by such long odds.
You see, recently in North Vancouver, Tigger had a little encounter with a black bear that went viral on TikTok.
The two-year-old housecat, owned by Gavin and Cameron Sturrock, was caught on video walking down a black bear when it strayed on to the brothers’ property.
Gavin said he was carrying two boxes of Nerf guns out to his car for a camping trip when he noticed the black bear in the driveway.
Then he noticed Tigger.
“Literally, I was just frozen,” Cameron told Global News.

“I didn’t notice right away, but my little cat was just like — he was right here,” added Gavin. “He was two feet away from this bear.”
When he called to Tigger, trying to get him away from the bear, the housecat (as they often do) just ignored him.
“I was freaked out, Oh my God, this bear is going to eat my cat right now,” he said.
Cameron said he couldn’t believe it when the cat arched its back and walked right up to the bear.
“I saw the cat just chase after the bear and I was like no way,” Cameron said.

“That cat’s head is so swollen with swagger now,” someone else joked.
