They say that dogs are man’s best friend, but after seeing this, we think that cats should also be included in that category!
In a video released to YouTube, security camera footage shows a little boy in Bakersfield, CA riding his bike around his driveway when the neighbor’s dog comes out of nowhere and viciously attacks him!
Though the boy’s mother appears to be nearby, it’s the family’s cat Tara that gets to him first, scaring the dog away and then making sure the job is done by chasing it down the street.
The boy then gets up and appears to run toward the house, but had the cat not arrived when she did, things could have been much worse.
WARING: the end of the clip features some graphic images of the boy’s injuries, but thankfully, he just needed a few stitches and was fine.
