Hero Cat Saves Toddler From Evil Dog Attack

Posted in: ,

As can be seein the GIF above, a toddler riding his bike in their driveway was nearly mauled by a neighbor's aggressive dog but was saved by a cat. The dog was prevented from doing too much damage by Tara, the family's cat. The charged cat rushed out, knocked the much-larger dog down, and then chased it away. A surveillance camera captured the near-attack, which took place in California. The mom who was nearby thereby came out to scoop up the boy. Amazing!

From ABC 23:

The boy's mother told 23ABC the boy needed a few stitches, but he is doing fine this morning.

She also said the dog belonged to a neighbor and is now under observation.

Erika Triantafilo, Jeremy's mother, was nearby watering a tree when she heard his screams.

"I didn't really even realize what had happened until after when my husband showed me the surveillance video," Erika said.

Erika told 23ABC the boy needed a few stitches, but he is doing fine. Erika said it could have been much worse.

"I've never seen a cat do that," said Roger Triantafilo, Jeremy's father. "Especially ours. It just shows how much she really has a family-oriented mind set."
