Can a cat fight off a coyote?
Brave House Cat Fights Off Coyote (Watch)
Modern home security cameras offer us a whole new genre of videos to enjoy on the internet, and I’m not complaining about that. Although, I’m starting to wonder if these cameras are actually used for their intended design to catch burglars and thieves in the act? Because it seems like I only ever come across videos of wild animal encounters or other bizarre occurrences captured by these cameras. But I digress. The video below shows a fearless house cat go toe-to-toe with a mangy coyote on the front porch of a Texas home. Check it out.

Cat vs. Coyote: Who Wins in the Scrappy Attack On Texas Porch? [Watch]
After meeting face-to-face with a coyote on a porch in Surfside, Texas, a courageous cat almost escaped, and it was all recorded on video.

LOS ANGELES, CA — MAY 09: A coyote walks through Griffith Park, the nation’s largest urban park, after fleeing flames on May 9, 2007 in Los Angeles, California. The Griffith Observatory, Los Angeles Zoo, Travel Town, and various other park features were threatened but did not burn in the wildfire that broke out yesterday afternoon and forced nearby residents to evacuate their homes later that night. So far the fire has consumed 840 acres of brush and is 40 percent contained by firefighters. Five fires have broken out in the park, which is mostly native chaparral habitat open space, since December including one near the landmark Hollywood sign. Los Angeles is experiencing the driest rain season since records began in 1887. Two years ago, the city had its second-wettest winter.
Tabby Cat Gets Away From Hungry Coyote’s Wrath in Texas
In a video shared on Facebook, a hungry coyote constantly lunges at the cat as it scrambles beneath a lawn chair above the deck in the nail-biting footage. On the other hand, the ferocious feline was not about to give up without a struggle.
As it desperately tries to escape over a railing, the cat lifts its paws like fists and hisses at the coyote, only to be dragged down by the predator’s jaws. The cat, on the other hand, manages to get away and climbs up a column.
The coyote takes a few steps before giving up and fleeing. The brave kitty clings to the column for its dear life, checking to see if the coyote will continue the assault. Gray said that he tried to save the cat by pounding on the door, which startled the coyote away from the porch.
Viewers praised the cat’s bravery. A user praised the kitty’s claws and fighting spirit on YouTube, where the video has at least 7,000 viewers. Another person stated that the cat is intelligent and courageous for fighting back and knows when to quit and flee.
Some people were also concerned about the safety of the cat. It’s unclear whether the cat had a human owner.
Surfside Beach police informed ABC 13 that the neighborhood is dealing with a coyote problem, and they’re working with Texas Parks and Wildlife to figure out what to do about it.
Residents in Houston, roughly an hour outside of Surfside Beach, verified to FOX 26 Houston last year that there is a coyote problem, which has resulted in the loss of dogs.
About Coyote vs. Cat
Experts said Houston’s urban coyotes travel in packs and prefer to scavenge for food after nightfall.
Kelly Norrid, an urban wildlife biologist for Texas Parks and Wildlife, said coyotes are extremely frequent in Houston.
Norrid explained that Coyotes have been roaming Houston for decades, following bayous and migrating from forested to wooded areas.
«We’ve been hearing a lot recently over the last few years that coyote numbers are booming throughout Houston,» Norrid told Fox7.
According to Norrid, coyotes are not known to hurt humans, and assaults on pets are unusual.
People frequently inquire whether domestic cats can survive a coyote assault or what proportion of domestic cats survive a coyote attack.
However, according to Picture of Cats, not all cats are prone to coyote attacks since they can fight themselves against not one but three coyotes.
So, the short answer is yes, depending on the cat’s personality and the coyote’s motivation and state of mind.
