    I'm sorry Hyacinth, but to criticise the mother for not supervising her child closely enough is blaming the victim. You should be able to trust your child to play on their driveway without having to stand right next to them in case a stray dog attacks. As for, "he could've just as well been run over", that is entirely the parent's judgement. I am rather sure that if she thought there was any chance that her child would disobey the "stay off the road" rule, she wouldn't have let him play there. I am not at all a fan of the current day expectation that you need to hover over your child all the time, just in case something really random and devastating might happen. Or for that matter, because people seem to think that you cannot give a child any responsibility over their own safety at all. It's a far cry from how I was brought up and there is no valid reason for this change of attitude.

    *End rant*

    Other than that: Cats rule, dogs drool! (I love droolers of course)

    I don't blame the mum, she could have been rescuing another child from some disaster. I just don't understand the whole set up or the way the clip is put together, ie multiple angles spliced together. Why are there so many surveillance cameras in one street and no human ones (although I suppose little sister counts).

    The dog and the dog bite were horrible. There's no getting around that. The kid on the bike had no idea the dog was coming.

    I can't say I'm all that surprised about the killer attack cat pouncing on the dog. There are about four of these cats on the paths me and my dog walk on a regular basis and we're very careful when we go past a "killer attack" cat's house.

    There's a few pat monster cats too - who will insist on a pat and a chin rub no matter what the evil hound thinks about it.

    Here's a bit more on the story
    Cat attacks dog, saves boy — and makes her owners famous

    According to the news story it was a lab x chow - who'da thought - I think the nose is too pointy for that combo too. And I didn't think labs or chows were into leaving their own property to attack children.

    And the person who rushes out was the mum not little sister. And she disappears because she's putting the dog back in its yard?

    I thought that cat was awesome – particularly coming back and checking on the little boy – and then continuing on to kick the dog’s ar$e !
