It's Super Cat to the rescue! Sounds like an animated series on the Cartoon Network, but an incredible feline actually DID save a small boy from a dog attack!
Roger Triantafilo's son was riding his bike outside his home in Bakersfield, Calif., when a dog ran after him, lunging at the child and pulling him to the ground. Then, out of the blue, the family's black cat jumped on the dog and chased him away.
You know what makes this SO unbelievable?
Most of the time, cats are totally aloof. They are in their own world, although they do come to us for cuddles and food when they want them. So to see a cat defend its owner this way is totally astounding. This is pet behavior usually seen in dogs, not cats. It just shows that the bond between animals and people can go beyond the stereotypes of the breed. Dogs will often protect the children of the family, and this proves that cats are capable of that too.
So does all this sound too bizarre? Check out the video -- captured on the family's surveillance cameras -- to see for yourself.
Have you ever known a cat to do something heroic like this?
