If you love cats and believe they are human’s best friend, you’ll love this.
A family cat saved a boy from a dog attack.
The incident occurred at a home in Southwest Bakersfield, California on Tuesday. The surveillance video shows the boy playing on his bicycle outside in the driveway when a dog sneaks up behind him and grabs his leg.
The dog tried to pull the boy down the sidewalk, but miraculously the family’s cat Tara jumps in front of the dog and chased it from the property. Once Tara had chased the dog off the property, she returned to her family.
The boy’s mother, Erika Triantafilo was outside with her son at the time and managed to lift him to safety.
He was taken to a local hospital and his mother told 23ABC he needed a few stitches, but he is doing fine this morning.
Mrs Triantafilo later said: “My cat defends my son during a vicious dog attack and runs the dog off before he can do additional damage. Thankfully, my son is fine!”
The boy’s father Roger Triantafilo, who captured the incident on his surveillance camera, uploaded the clip to YouTube.
Comments on the YouTube video lash out saying the video is fake.
Disklosr says, “I think this video is fake. You can clearly see the pixels at 0:56.”
zlatko Mancevski agrees, “disklosr is totally right. How a situation like this can be so well edited, just like on a movie?”
Cagnaxxo says, “People tend to moan about cats not greeting them when they come home. But that cat still sees you as their pack. You don’t f*** with a cat’s pack.”
Mats Lindblad wrote, “I dare say that most cats aren’t like that. He comes back to check on the boy too. Who the f*** lets a dog like that roam the street? My rottweiler is a really nice and superfriendly dog but he is so clumpsy and I wouldn’t let him walk about, he’d trample every child on the street, and then lick them until they drown. Know your dog.”
The dog belonged to a neighbor and is now under observation.
