Cat saves boy from dog!

Looky what happened in my city today!

Family Cat Saves Boy From Dog Attack | Video - ABC News

I guess animal control has the dog now. It's being held for 10 days for rabies, then it will be PTS. Who'd have thought a cat would step in like that!!! That cat just was NOT having it!

Just saw this on our news. That's one hell of a cat.

Glad the dog has been contained, but hope more, the owners of this dog gets what's coming to them for letting this dog run free.

It is their responsibility for what happened.

Glad the young boy is OK!

Yeah that dogs behavior was quite concerning, and I'm glad they were able to capture it. Unfortunate that it has to be put down, but I can't say that I disagree with the decision after what it did. That looked like a predatory attack, and he was out to do damage. Who knows how much more he would have hurt the boy if the kitty hadn't stepped in.

I'll see if there are any other articles that mention whether the owner is being investigated. Or if the dog could even be traced to an owner or residency. People are so irresponsible with dogs here. Luckily there are a lot of low cost spay/neuter clinics happening this year, so I hope that helps.

Just goes to show not only dogs protect their owners, what a brave and loyal puss.

Hey guys, here is the full length of the survaliance camera the family released. I mean, oh my goodness. This dog was really would to get the kid. What provoked the dog to attack him like that?

I love that the cat was a rescue kitty. Does anyone know if anything was done to the owner(s)? I heard the euthanized the dog.
