Badass Cat Saves Boy From Vicious Dog Attack

Score one for kitties. The surveillance footage below shows a young Bakersfield, Calif., boy playing on his bike in the driveway when a nasty neighbor dog sneaks up on him and bites his leg. The dog continues to gnash at the boy, but that’s when the family’s cat Tara rushes in to save the day, fighting off the mean mutt and chasing it away.

The boy’s mom Erika reported that her son needed a few stitches but is doing fine. And we assume that Tara is doing even better, probably being served the finest Friskies feast there is for her heroic act. (via KERO)

Update: There is now an interview with the boy and Tara the badass cat. Watch here.
