Cat saves 4 year old Boy

Who says Cats only care about themselves?  This is a true story that happened on 13th May 2014, when a domesticated short-haired tabby moggy ran to a little boy’s defence, as the boy was attacked by a dog that obviously thought the boy was “prey”.   This amazing brave cat leaps onto the dog and chases it around the car, before running back to check on the boy.  There are many stories I personally know about the higher intelligence and spirituality of Cats, and this is another I can add to my repertoire.

 

Four year old Jeremy had been on his bike, walking it up the family driveway when the next door neighbor’s dog trotted around a parked car and tore into the boy’s leg, dragging him off the bike.

That’s when Tara, the cat, appeared on the scene, leaping on top of the dog, scaring it away. The kitty then went after the dog long enough to make sure it stayed away. The startling scene was captured in a one-minute clip compiled by Jeremy’s dad, Roger Triantafilo.

The article at the page below explains that Tara was a stray whom followed the family home one night six years ago.  Looks clearly like one of Tara’s “briefs” or “missions” is to protect her friend Jeremy!

  1. I was wondering if you had seen this clip. That’s one tough little cat!

  2. It’s been on the TV news here! But they called the dog a “pitbull” although it was a Labrador x Chow.
