Cat protects owner by scaring off alligator

LOS ANGELES The cat and the gator seemed to be engaged in a standoff. The gator, apparently intimidated, turned around and went back into the water. But then, it came back with a friend.

The cat stood his ground. After the alligator appeared to show some interest on the cat's owner, the cat pounced forward.

Once again the gator retreated. As for the friend, the cat just lost interest and opted for some petting instead.
