A cat came to her homeowner’s rescue when she scared a black bear off the porch.

The black cat’s owners say he’s normally a “fraidy-cat” but this video tells a different story.

The bear walked up on the porch of a home in Eagle River, Alaska and was met by the eyes of the cat.

Both animals shared a stare-off through a glass door.

Then all of a sudden the cat lunged at the bear making it run off the porch.

The owner of the cat was taken by surprise by their pet’s bravery.
