Cat Versus Dogs

I’m not one to start the whole “cats versus dogs” debate, but in this specific situation, I’m on the cat’s side, without question. Cherry Woods was attacked by two pit bulls near her neighborhood in Houston, Texas back in June 2010. Her husband tried to get the dogs off of her, but he couldn’t. That’s when Cherry’s cat Lima ran and protected her owner. Lima hissed and clawed and got the pit bulls to focus their attention on her for a long enough time that Cherry’s husband could lead her to safety. Fortunately, both Cherry and Lima survived the ordeal.
