Watch out, folks. Florida isn’t the only place where gators do wild and crazy things (like walk across golf courses, for instance, like it’s NBD).
A cat named Lola from Houston, Texas, now has a cocktail party story for the ages after she came face-to-face with a gator at her own front door.
According to ABC 13, who reported the story, Allison Tonkin filmed a video of the moment an alligator came up to her front door and greeted her cat who was protected by the door’s glass.
“I thought it was awesome,” Tonkin said. “I guess I should have been a bit more scared. I thought it was cool.”
The gator was being tracked by neighbors who saw it roaming around the neighborhood, where it spotted another cat and fancied a staring contest.
ABC 13 reports that two other gators were caught nearby, including a 10-foot one near a tree farm in Needville and the third, more than 6 feet long, was caught at the Richmond YMCA. Police said recent flooding has caused these animals to be displaced.
“We are next to the Brazos [River and] my house is two doors down [from] an easement,” said Tonkin. Nevertheless, she added, “It was funny to see the cat’s reaction to it.”
