All’s fair in food and war.

A sassy little duck talks a big game to two wisened cats, and when it comes down to fisticuffs, the duck is all show.

YouTube user Jason Greenberg uploaded the following video to the site, with the helpful description “duck and cat fight.” That’s exactly what happens—a small duckling gets up in feline business as two cats are eating. The duck chases them away and eats their food for a bit, but after one good cat paw to the head, the duck is demoralized and retreats to nibble on the carpet.
