    Default Cat saves child from dog attack

    This clip makes me happy and sad. Happy because it is seriously incredible footage showing that not all cats are heartless like mine are Tell you what that kid is lucky that his cat and his mother were there to help, I'd hate to imagine what would have happened otherwise

    This clip also makes me sad because its going crazy viral at the moment... It was probably the first 5 posts on my facebook newsfeed this morning... With this video going so viral, Its surely not helping the Pit Bull as a breed. I don't know if the dog in the video is a pit bull or not (i'm not the best at identifying them) but to the average person they would assume it is a pit bull

    Poor little boy but what a wonderful cat! I love how he goes back to the boy after he chases the dog away.
    I'd like to think that my cat would do that for me

    So how come the mum / child sitter wasn't out there as soon as the dog appeared - well before it attacked. And how many different cameras did they use to get that footage. Just because you have a security camera - doesn't mean you don't need to watch your child out the front on the street.

    The other person who did come out was another child, and the child that was bitten - had to get itself inside.

    It could just have easily been run over by a car. And I'd have been limping after a bite like that.

    Impressive video but it feels "over produced" to me.

    The dog looked like a mutt to me - the nose was way too long and pointy to be a pitbull. Maybe a SBT x JRT mutt combo?

    Saw this on fb this morning, one cool kitty. The dog definitely looks like it has bully breed in it, could be a whole heap of breeds with a strong bully influence. Just watching it approach with the tail held so high and rigid made me cringe. My first thought was rabies but I've never seen a real case of rabies so really I have no idea. Very strange though to see a lone dog take on a human, even a child outside their territory.

    I imagine the child was very scared and so maybe couldn't have even felt the pain until later.

    I don't imagine the video is doing anything for the dog community either, even though ironically this story has generated so much interest bc it's the first documented instance I've seen of a cat doing anything for someone else, whereas you hear about dogs saving people all the time so it's not as exciting.

    You guys are looking at this all totally wrong.

    Out of the camera view the cat is actually stalking this kid sharpening its deadly claws at it sneaks up on him. The dog spots this from afar and has no choice but to quickly grab the child and drag him from the evil rat chasers line of fire.

    Thats why the cat got there so quick.....it was already on its way to rip out the poor kids jugular. The dog actually SAVES the kid. Unfortunately the poor kid got a touch up but what was the dog to do ....it has teeth not hands.

    Anyway i hope the kid is alright ....the dog gets a heros trophy ...and that bloody cat gets taken care of.

    ...calm down ...i'm just having ya's on. It's pretty full on that vid. Lucky the little kid didnt get mauled even worse.

    A dog that does that should not be given a second chance, it has serious problems.

    It would be very difficult for the owners. Imagining myself in their situation, i can't even bare to think of how devastated i would be and how much i would wish there would be another alternative. But i agree with you Farrview. A dog that has attacked a child like that needs to be put to sleep, there is no alternative that gives the dog a quality life and keeps people/other animals safe.
