Watch As Cat Engages Squirrel In An Epic Staring Contest

| Published on February 15, 2017

It’s no secret that squirrels are the nemeses of our dogs and cats. Most pet owners are well aware of the constant battle between our cats and these little rodents. Squirrels are known for taunting our cats deliberately, or at least it appears that they enjoy teasing them. With our cats often inside, there’s no way they can catch the squirrels and it’s apparent that the rodents know this! But one cat wasn’t about to let a window stop him from accepting the challenge of his neighborhood squirrel.

“The Stand Off,” as the video is aptly called, features 8-year-old Milo pawing at a squirrel through the window. The squirrel came over to get some sunflower seeds on the windowsill and ended up in a staring contest with the feline homeowner. Milo’s owner, Diane Mitchell, told People, “[Milo] had just come in from outside when the little squirrel borrowed underneath the snow to get the sunflower seeds at the base of our window.” 

This video has been viewed over 114,000 times as we write this with many more to follow we’re sure. These too are just too cute but a note of warning to the squirrel – soon the snow will be gone and the windows will be open! Since Milo had already come in from outside, the squirrels are likely to see more of him as spring approaches.
