Napoleon Syndrome: "A popular term for the inferiority complex that short men (under 5’9') in society are commonly assumed to possess, which causes them—at least per theory to overcompensate by trying harder than men of average height (5’10') in life’s activities."
That's how the Free Dictionary defines the term.
I wonder if this applies to small cats trying to challenge — I don’t know – a LION for example.
Well funny enough, this is exactly what cat Baggy did when she spotted lion Noey. It all took place at an Animal Center in Texas.
Baggy is one brave little cat.
In a video filmed by Derek Krahn on his mobile, you can see Baggy when she spots the lion. You would think maybe she would startle and run off. But no, not this brave kitty.
In fact, she runs straight to big lion Noey. The only thing separating the two is a small fence. Bold move Baggy! You can hear Derek giggling "What are you doing Baggy?" then tells Noey: "She's got little kitty napoleon syndrome."
You can hear how Derek says to Baggy that "you will lose", "Baggy, gone!" And "there's nothing to win on this, Baggy" while the cat is jumping to the lion Noey.
Not sure if lion Noey is happy living a caged life, but what we do know is that he is in good hands at The Center for Animal Research and Education (CARE), in Texas. This what the center write on their website:
"The Center for Animal Research and Education is a non-profit organization dedicated to education, research, rescue, and long-term care for exotic animals. Located on 20 acres in Bridgeport, TX, CARE currently provides a permanent home to over 40 animals."
