Singapore's very own Tom and Jerry?
In a 11-second video shared on TikTok by user floracindy1 on Tuesday (Feb 21), a large rat is seen relentlessly chasing a black-and-white cat at a void deck in Hougang Central.
Though the cat notices the rat creeping out from a corner, the rat lunges suddenly at the cat , catching it by surprise and forcing it to run away.
The cat slows down a little but is pursued by the rat again.
The video ends without revealing how the chase concluded.
