Fearless Cat Filmed Rescuing Young Boy from Vicious Dog Attack

A cat in Bakersfield, Calif., potentially saved a boy’s life when it staved off a vicious dog attack, and the whole rescue was caught on surveillance video.  First, the boy is seen playing on his bike in the driveway. A dog belonging to a neighbor comes around a car and sneaks up on the boy. The dog runs up to the boy and viciously attacks him, dragging him down the pavement by the leg.

Suddenly, the family cat, Tara, rushes out and knocks the dog off the boy, saving him. Tara even makes sure the dog gets the message that it’s not welcome (you’ll see the gesture in the video).  The boy’s mother told KERO-TV that he was fine, but needed a few stitches.

It’s not often that we report on cats saving the day.  We happen to be dog fans on this site.  But even this act of heroism can’t go unnoticed.  Enjoy the video and if you’re a cat owner, give them a hug.
