A mum was left horrified after finding out what her cat was actually playing with after her daughter said it was a rabbit.
Valentina’s three-year-old daughter Renata noticed their cat playing with another creature in the city of Caleta Olivia in Argentina.
In the footage, she tells her mum the feline is playing around with a baby rabbit. Excited to see the cute interaction, the mum responds by saying: “How lovely.”
But when she enters the room she discovers the cat isn’t playing with a rabbit at all.
Instead, she sees a huge rodent scurrying across the floor with the feline in quick pursuit.
Valentina screams in terror before darting out of the room.
She later told local media: “I first thought it was a rat, but it was actually a Southern mountain cavy which is bigger than a rat and does not have a tail.
“I was brave and used a towel to get it out of the house and back into its natural habitat.”
The mum added: “I filmed it and sent it to the family, and then an aunt decided to send it to someone they know in the media.
“I never thought it would be seen all over the country and even abroad!
“I think my reaction is the same anyone would have had in that situation.”
It is not the first time a cat owner has given a nasty surprise after finding out what their pet has been playing with.
In November last year, Christina Laughter found to her horror her cat playing with a snake having initially thought he was simply playing with his shadow.
