One scared feline darts away as Tuesday gets closer but the others hold their ground, bravely squaring up to the dog almost three-times their size.

Curious Tuesday slows as he approaches. The closer he gets the further the cats’ backs arch, signalling that they feel threatened.

The cats stare at the cheerful hound as he wags his tail, seemingly trying to decide how best to play with his new friends.

But Tuesday swiftly gets the message and backs up towards his owner as the cats hold their ground.

As the dog owner starts walking past the still-poised cats, Tuesday follows and trots along the sidewalk to their right.

But he just can’t help one last curious sniff causing the nearest cat to launch itself at him.

The black-furred feline flies through the air with a loud hiss, batting Tuesday with its paws.

The dog backs away whimpering before scampering onto the road.

The filmer giggles as Tuesday walks away unscathed.

The dog walker said: ‘This is my pup Tuesday. Every morning we take the same walk in our neighborhood. 

‘This morning specifically, I woke up early to try and see the full moon but unfortunately it wasn’t in sight, so I took Tuesday on a different route and ran into the neighborhood street cats. 

‘Needless to say, they weren’t happy to see him. No animals were harmed in the making of this video and Tuesday is well trained on and off of a leash.’
