Cat's Amazing!

Some of you may already have seen this but I simply have to blog it!    Filmed via different angles on home surveillance cameras, it shows a little kid playing on his bike outside his house on a California street, where a neighbour's dog sneaks up from behind and viciously attacks the four year old.   From nowhere comes the little lad's pet cat, Tara, and sets about the dog at what looks like a case of sheer protection and sees the bastard of a mutt off.    God knows how worse the wee soul's injuries may have been  (the end footage on this video is bad enough!)  if it wasn't for Mighty Moggie's quick intervention.

I have a cat , Boaby, who annihilate's the dogs next door (Rottweilers) if they dare do a sneaky into our garden.  They retreat with their tails (had they any) between their legs at the mere sight of him,  yet there are smaller cats who enter the garden that he wimps over.  It's very doubtful, however, that he would have acted in the same way in a similar situation.   I do believe he'd sit there, licking his arse occasionally, and watch me get mauled! 

Cat's often get unfairly judged, coming across as sleekit, selfish, fussy things.   They are  temperamental but thanks to the world wide web, we see loads of incredible feline video's leaving us in awe.   I think we expect more amazing things from dogs but I doubt we will see things of this kind very often.....

YTF wasn't that dog on a leash, that's what I wanna know!

The video is truly amazing - I've never seen anything like it.
Cats are definitely unfairly judged. Most people who hate cats don't know a thing about them.

I've always loved cats, and from personal experience I've found them to be highly intelligent, very affectionate, and fiercely devoted.

Anne - it'd be $5.000 easy in JJ's court!

Jon - Spot on! I wonder what some of the haters will make of this...?

I know hardly anything can get to a hurt child sooner than a mother, but that cat acted faster than the speed of thought and managed it. Amazing creature.

Helena said...

Geo - Absolutely. Thank goodness for the speed of kitty otherwise the wound could have been so much worse.

How awesome is this!? I have never understood why cats get a bad name/ They are just as loving as dogs, just in a different way.

I love Hero Cat! And your cat sounds amazing too. My mum has an inappropriately named cat called Flossy who is huge (especially for a female) and fierce and will see any species off - she fears no one! You right, they are all very different - just like people!
