Dramatic footage has emerged of a brave cat saving a young child from a vicious dog attack and now everyone who’s ever argued that cats aren’t distant, selfish, clawing, heartless robot pets is having a good day.
An ABC affiliate posted the video, which shows a child slowly riding a very small bike somewhere in sunny Bakersfield, California, when a neighbor’s dog runs around a nearby car, drags the boy off the bike with his teeth and starts spinning the child around.
Luckily, the attack is cut short by the family cat, who hurls herself into the fight, forces the dog off the bike, and chases him away. The video is titled simply “My cat saved my son,” and was presumably edited from home security footage by the child’s mother. The victim did receive some nasty bites that needed a few stitches, but is otherwise doing fine.

Thankfully, my son is fine! Question: Why did the mom run away?
And people reacted exactly as you’d expect:
Sadly, the dog was picked up by animal control yesterday and the decision has been made to put it to sleep. Apparently, the dog was aggressive even after it was captured and officials decided it was in the best interest for everyone involved to euthanize the canine.
I think all of us would agree that was the right choice.
