We’ve all heard the saying, a “Dog is man’s best friend.” But what about cats? They tend to get the reputation of doing what they want when they want, and don’t rank very high in the loyalty department. This story proves that cats might be closer thanONCE thought in the race for “man’s best friend.”
A little boy named Jeremy, had just gotten off the school bus and wanted to fly his kite and was out front of his house, innocently riding his bike. All of a sudden an unleashed dog attacked him! Surveillance cameras picked up footage of a dog approaching Jeremy from around a vehicle parked in front of his house. Suddenly, the unleashed dog attacked the boy, sinking its teeth into his leg.
Just when you think things are going to take a turn for the worse, the family cat comesRUNNING to the boy’s rescue! The cat had no problem showing that dog who’s boss and sent the canine running in retreat!
His mother, Erika Triantafilo, said the dog belongs to a neighbor and is now under observation with animal control. “The next thing I know, the dog was just there, and it was shaking him. Before I could even get there, my cat clobbered him. She saved the day,” Erika said. “Chased him away, and came back to him after the dog was gone. I just chased the dog away – tried to get it away from my son – away from everyone, and get him taken care of.”
Jeremy did sustain an injury to his leg and needed stitches but it would have been a lot worse had it not been for this heroic feline! Cats have a poor reputation for not being the friendliest of animals but this cat is proving that to be nonsense!
