Cat saves boy from dog attack

A cat came to the rescue of a four-year-old boy as he was attacked by a neighbor’s dog while playing in his family’s driveway in Bakersfield, Calif.


Surveillance video caught the entire incident, in which the dog approached the boy from behind and bit his leg before the family’s cat, Tara, rushed in and chased the dog away.


The boy’s mother, Erika Triantafilo, told ABC 23 her son needed a few stitches, but his injuries could have been much worse.
