Happiness at Cats Stopping Fighting to Team Up and Hunt Bird: “Priorities”

For a pet, cats have many mortal enemies. From dogs to mice, from other females to their reflections in the mirror – the list of their opponents is endless.

However, if the cat has a true nemesis, it’s the bird – the only opponent that can fly away.

Two fighting cats got the internet laughing this week after they put their differences aside to focus on a bird.

In a clip posted to Reddit forums r/AnimalsBeingDerps by user u/babayum6969, two tabbies can be seen exchanging slaps on a windowsill — until they hear the unmistakable chirp of a feathered enemy. The pair immediately stop arguing and look in the direction of the sound, ready to pounce.

The post, titled “Fuck the fight, we heard our mortal enemy laughing,” has garnered over 57,000 upvotes from Reddit users since it was shared on Thursday.

“Priorities,” said is_anyone_out_there.

“The enemy of my enemy is a friend!” wrote Emotional_Camel9289.

“Typical siblings,” joked CherryCherry5.

A 2013 study estimated that between 1.3 and 4 billion birds are killed by cats in the United States each year. The Humane Society of the United States says that 25 to 35 percent of indoor cats are outdoor cats, which pose a greater threat to wildlife than just indoor animals.

There are approximately 30 to 40 million feral cats across the country. Feral cats pose the greatest risk to wildlife as they rely on hunting as their primary source of food. Stray and feral cats kill three times as many animals as indoor cats.

Free-ranging cats are believed to have caused the extinction of 63 different species, including birds, mammals and reptiles. Overall, the big cat has led to 26 percent of the known current extinctions of these animal groups. To prevent your pet from harming local wildlife, experts recommend keeping your cat indoors.

Others compared the duo to famous enemies throughout history who banded together to take on a common enemy.

“France and England throughout history,” said Tryphon59200.

“Greeks and Turks when a westerner says they don’t like baklava,” commented Pan151.

“Bloods and crips…then the cops roll on,” iheartalpacas wrote.

Although cats have the upper hand, sometimes birds are still better than them in combat. Like this orange tabby who got stuck in a tree while taking on a magpie. Birds haven’t just outwitted cats, however. A Golden Doodle and his bird pal took over the internet earlier this month after their epic tug of war over a treat was posted on TikTok.
