Palace guard drops his guard for a stray cat

Clearly, one of these guards really likes or even loves domestic cats because this individual - the guy marked in the photograph - can't help but pet this attractive stray cat who wanders through the palace gates. 

I am told that these are the palace gates in Malaysia. I don't know which palace if there is more than one but it looks impressive. It looks a little incongruous for a security guard dressed in uniform to temporarily let down his guard by petting a cat. 

And why are all those cars going through the gates without being stopped and checked? I don't understand what's going on but it's the juxtaposition of a friendly cat and the relationship the cat makes with the guard which is interesting in the context that we see in the video. To people whose native language is not English, to 'drop your guard' means to relax your defences and allow yourself to be vulnerable.

The video has been speeded up for some reason. That's the way the video maker visualized it. I don't think it helps.

Note: This is a video from another website which is embedded here. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.
