Angry dog roaming the neighbourhood? Slow to react child with leftover food in his pocket? No problem! Family cat to the rescue!
A California boy was viciously attacked by a dog while playing on his bicycle in his driveway. A decidedly hungry neighbourhood dog ran up to the boy and began gnawing on his leg and dragging him down the driveway. Without any intervention, the situation may have been cat-a-strophic, but luckily, the boy’s family cat, Tara, was there to save the day.
Tara the cat hero comes out of nowhere and jumps in front of the dog – chasing the animal from her family’s property. I have a feeling that dog won’t be bothering them any more (mainly because it might have to be put down…)
ABC23reports that the kid needed a few stitches and perhaps a rabies shot, but things could have been a lot worse had Tara the hero cat not intervened in the suburban driveway drama.
When asked about her loyalty to the child, Tara the cat replied “Child? There was a child there? I saw a fucking dog, I attacked. Tara looks out for Tara.”
Cats will be cats!
