Looked like an immature eagle followed as it flew off.

Wow, I had no idea a bald eagle was that big. I think the eagle could possibly have a hard time catching the cat from such a close distance. That sounds absurd, but cats are insanely fast and eagles usually kill from above. Still, I'm surprised the cats stuck around.

I think that they'd BOTH die if they got in a fight... the cat before the eagle.

Cat claws have huge amounts of bacteria... even a small wound can become infected enough to kill a bird. (Speaking from experience with parrots...)
