BAKERSFIELD, California (KGET) – The pet cat came to the rescue after a dog attacked a 4-year-old boy.
Security cameras captured the dramatic footage as the boy was seen riding his bike.
A neighbor’s dog sneaked around the back of an SUV, then ran up and viciously bit him.
The family’s hero cat charged at the dog, tackled it, and chased it off.
The boy’s mother, Erica Triantafilo, says the dog was still hanging around after the attack and she tried to chase it away, but ended up getting bit as well.
The boy was taken to the hospital and received 10 stitches.
