An adorable battle as old as time rages on ... on the Internet.
In the opening round of the bout, a German shepherd delivers a flurry of paw jabs at his annoyed opponent. Patiently weathering the lukewarm assault, the house cat turns things around in the last moments of the video.
Although there's no menace to their interaction -- neither animal strikes an aggressive pose --
it should of course be mentioned that this conflict might have been avoided completely, had the people behind the camera let the cat inside instead of filming the confrontation.
