A couple in Denver, Colorado decided to help out a stray cat and started feeding it on their front porch. 

On Monday morning Jason Zaffuto, the homeowner, was watching his surveillance cameras and found out just how tough the stray cat really is.

With the cat on the front porch eating, Zaffuto watched as a coyote tried to sneak up and grab a bite.

The coyote clearly gets too close for comfort because the cat arches its back and tries to swat the coyote, sending the coyote running off. 

Zaffuto said he then ran outside to help chase the predator away. 

The cat showed back up to the house later that day unscathed. 

The homeowner said this is a good reminder to try to keep animals inside if you live in a coyote populated area.
