The animal food chain is fairly straight forward: a higher up animal preys on a lower -- but one unfortunate cat found that his food knew how to fight back. Fortunately for the chipmunk, it was a black belt in animal karate, so even when it was in the paws of a cat, it was able to break out some moves against the predator.
The chipmunk didn't bother to wait for the cat to dine before it dashed, forcing the cat to look elsewhere for the next meal. With over 1.5 million YouTube views and counting, this video has everyone rooting for the little guy.
