Nature can be a pretty harsh place. You have to fight for your territory, stand up to predators, even if they are ten times your size. And you have to be fearless. And this turtle definitely was. It's not something you see every day - a teeny weeny turtle standing up to two enormous lions. You'd worry that, oh no, this will end in catastrophe, but amazingly, not only does nothing bad happen to the turtle, it managed to chase the lions away from its waterhole.

Maybe it's because lions are just large kittens in disguise, and they're nicer than they seem. Maybe it's because they know how resilient turtles are and that turtles can easily outlive them in the wild. Or maybe, it's because cats of all sizes know, through the experience of their own species, that one of the fiercest wild cats in the world is a tiny kitten, so tiny doesn't mean not ferocious.

Adopting A Very Curious And Affectionate Abyssinian Kitten

Everyone, meet JellyBean - the cutest, fiercest, most adorable and endlessly affectionate kitten. It's the kind of magical kitten that everyone wants, purring instantly, showing off the floofy belly on the very first car ride home. Not many kittens are this trusting on the very first day, a lot of times it takes a while to build that kind of trust with them. I know that's how it was with my cat.

But not with JellyBean. JellyBean instantly knew that the humans who took her are the best humans in the world and that this is now her forever home, and these humans are hers. She was friendly even with the doggos, and she - like every other adopted kitten - brought joy to a home that was very much in need of it.

Mildly Intimidating Cutie Cats (Fierce Pictures)

We all know that cats see themselves as the most intimidating and threatening creature in the room, it's mere fact. And you know what? We agree. Yes, kitten, your roar is terrifying, and we are so scared, we're shaking. The way you're attacking my wiggling fingers is like a true fierce predator stalking its slippery prey.

Just don't tell them that they're tiny and cute and fluffy and adorable, that might break the spell. Ah, we're kidding, continue cooing at them whenever they do anything "scary" because no matter how hard they try, they will always be out tiny widdle fluffballs

Fierce Kittens Roaring Like Big Cats

In their hearts, we know that all kittens feel like the fiercest, most powerful lions. When they yell at us for food, it's not just yelling, it's roaring for the servants to bring them their prey. When they fight a fly, it is actually them hunting for their next meal as they would in the wild as big cats.

And much as we don't like them having battles with our curtains, we do really love that they have these fierce instincts, and when we look at the real fierce big cats, we are reminded of our little kittens. All little kittens are our baby lions, and we love hearing all of them roar. Just not at three in the morning, please, I'm trying to sleep.

Fierce Cats And Kittens Wearing Lion Manes

How can we ever truly be sure that cats are related to the those big fluffy scary lions? Well, put a lion mane on a cat obviously. That's all the proof you'll ever need. It's enough to just look at cats wearing lion manes to be 100% sure that duh- of course they're related to lions. 

Maybe you'd expect cats to look more fierce with lion manes on, but alas, they still look just as adorable. Then again, lions themselves are also adorable, so maybe we shouldn't be surprised. We wonder if cats feel more fierce when they look more like their lion relatives, if they sense some sort of kinship to lions when you put the mane on them. Sigh gonna have to write that question down with the rest of them for when we finally have a cat translator.

Fearless Cats: Cats Standing Up Against Bears, Owls And Snakes

Though scaredy-cat is a truly appropriate term for real cats since we know cats are scared of basically everything - from random noises to unexpected cucumbers - when push comes to shove, cats are some of the most fearless, unbothered animals that exist. You shouldn't be offended, it's not just you poking them that they're aloof to, that trait of indifference applies to everyone

To prove that once and for all, we have compiled a list of some of our favorite cats standing up to other animals that you would probably not expect them to. An owl? Not a problem. A huge bear? Child's play. A king cobra? Pssh, not in this cat's household.

Although… with all this said, personally, we do not recommend counting on your cat to save you from a burglar.
