I’m putting this video up now because (probably due to its recency, as it was put on YouTube this morning) I’m getting links to it from elebenty gazillion people.
It’s self-explanatory, but here’s the YouTube caption from Roger Triantafilo, who posted it:
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!
Watch to the end to see the nasty bite inflicted by that bad d*g. Give that bravve cat a medal! Or, better yet, a tuna
Or maybe both:
Question for readers: do you think the cat really was trying to protect the child?
UPDATE: thanks to reader Trophy, we have a picture of the cat and the child he helped:
(According to Yahoo News, the attack happened in Bakersfield, California, and the cat’s name is Tara.)
