Video: Cat Rescues Boy During Dog Attack

Posted: Updated:
Dogs are typically dubbed man’s best friend, but in this case, a family feline came to the rescue of a 4-year old boy under attack.

The incident happened Tuesday when a young boy was attacked by a neighbor’s dog.

A new YouTube video shows a boy who was riding his bike in front of home, when the neighbor’s dog started attacking him.

The boy’s mother Erica Triantafilo was outside at the time.

Within seconds, the family’s cat jumped on the dog to get it off the boy. The cat then chased away the dog.

“Thankfully, my son is fine!” the boy’s father, Roger Triantafilo, wrote in the YouTube video description.

The boy is now at home recovering after he was taken to a hospital to get stitches.

Triantafilo told Kern Golden Empire that neighbors voluntarily had their dog quarantined.
