And sometimes, the kind of things you see in viral videos just happen right in front of you.
I was finishing my morning run when I saw this:
You don’t see a mouse chasing its tail too often. I didn’t really know what to do — you want to help the poor thing, but, then again, it IS a rodent — so I did what most people would do in that situation: I pulled out my cell phone and took blurry video of it, then posted it to YouTube.
And, yes, the guy walking by says “Is this your cat?” Why, no, but it’s an incredible facsimile thereof.
UPDATE: (And to answer those warning not to get close because it’s rabid, a) you’re probably right about the rabies and/or Hantavirus, and b) I’m not crazy enough to want to get that close, not even for video. I circled around the poor thing. Rodents tend to creep me out even when they’re not rabid…)
