Cat saves boy from dog attack!

by JayFromPA

(Edited: Original video that was posted by the parents of the boy was taken down. Replaced with a mirrored video.)

From Bakersfield California.

The surveillance video shows the boy, 4-year-old Jeremy, playing on his bicycle. He was coming home from school when he wanted to fly a kite. Jeremy has mild autism.

The neighbor's dog, an 8-month-old labrador/chow mix, sneaks up behind him and bites his leg.

The family's cat, named Tara, rushed the attacking dog and chased it away.

"Tara is my hero," Jeremy said.

Rushed the dog? Looked to me like Tara went for the "Flying Blender Of Teeth And Claws" tackle.

Three cheers for Tara!
