A video of a little Russian girl carrying a fat cat being menaced by a raucous, riled-up "monster puppy" to the safety of her home has gone viral.
The video, posted on YouTube in April, has received more than a quarter million views in recent days. It shows a toddler, who can't be more than three or four, scooping up a cat that's nearly as big as she is (it's certainly bigger than the dog trying to get at it) and carrying the fluffy feline down a country path as the cantankerous canine snarls and snaps at it.
But the dog seems to know better than to direct its ire at the little girl, and she is able to carry it to the safe confines of her family home. As for the fat cat, it rests calmly in the girl's arms, seemingly oblivious to the yipping, yapping, snipping and snapping of the adorably agitated pooch.
