The conflict between cats and mascot dogs is as old as nature itself, and it played out once again recently during an Israeli basketball game. It happened during the game between Tel Aviv Maccabi and Bnei Hasharon, when one of Israel’s notorious stray cats somehow found itself on the court, causing officials to stop play. Of course it fell to the Maccabi mascot, Donny the Dog, to capture the kitty — just what Donny was bred for! — and the chase was on.

Spoiler alert: Cat 1, Donny 0.

It was all like an episode of Trigger-Happy TV, or one of your nightmares following a tequila-and-Mexican-food binge.
