Cat Saves Boy From Getting Mauled by Dog

Posted By on Wed, May 14, 2014 at 11:30 AM


This has to be a parent's second or third worst nightmare.

Roger Triantafilo's son was attacked by a dog roaming the neighborhood. Luckily, Triantafilo was able to capture the incident on multiple surveillance cameras. The madly violent canine grabbed the boy by the leg while he was riding his bike. But the family cat attacked the dog before he could do any real damage. This is the kind of shit that only happens in the movies or Saturday morning cartoons.

The video says the boy was stitched up and he's doing fine. 

The cat's name is Tara, according to KERO Bakersfield.Tara deserves the key to the city, or a Friskies commercial.

Eat your careless heart out, Grumpy Cat.
