Family Cat Saves Child From Dog Attack

May 15, 2014


In case you somehow missed it because you've been internet celibate for the past 24 hours, this is a video of a family's cat that rushes to scare off a dog that's trying to eat a boy on a bicycle. That is a good cat. My cat? My cat would not lift a paw if it saw me being attacked. Unless it was to join in and finish me off. You know what my cat told me once? I've always wondered what you taste like. She's sick (I have wondered the same thing about her though).

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to everybody who sent this, at least half of whom expressed disappointment in their own cats.

    Here's the original, silent, youtube video from the kid's father, Roger Triantafilo you might want to stop at the 45 second mark if you don't want to see a close-up of the kid's wounds.. ew!

    Video removed by the user. Well, that sucks. I've heard about this situation and wanted to see that cat go Wolverine on that crazy dog's ass. LOL

  • Dr. Perry Cox

    I must say... my traditional, unshakeable hatred of cats has been slightly improved after seeing this. Good kitty.

    CATS RULE!!!

    People don't want to believe me when I say cats are pack animals, and will include people, their family, as members of their pack. The cat came to the rescue of his pack mate like it would another cat in it's pack.

    I grew up with cats. My mother calls herself a cat lady. I know cats are pack animals because when my little buddy Punkin died in 1996 the other three cats acted in ways you could call confused, mildly disoriented, they looked for their boss, their alpha-male, they didn't eat right, they lost weight. After two weeks they clearly chose a new leader of the pack. They chose.... ME. I became the alpha-male! I'm not kidding. the three of them decided to follow me around all the time, sleep on my bed. Curl up next to me on the couch. It was an honor but I had to be careful not to trip over anybody while walking down the hallway. lol. My mom was pissed, she should be getting the attention, she feeds them most often, she pays for the food, she cleans their litter boxes..... Actually she was only mildly annoyed.

    wait, they found this cat at a park? he looks a bit like....googles where this happened...

    my god "mr slippers" is a hero now. Guess he decided this kid needed him more than I did.

    Yay cat!..Yay Science!, that child would have been maimed if not for the family cat..and you noticed the dog went running for cover while the cat doubled back to see if his/her kitten was ok..and THAT's why we have a loaded shotgun in a shot lock system by the front door. Not just for the neighborhood coyotes and feral neighbors fancy pit bulls..I fancy 00 buckshot and a remingtom light 12 ( and cats)
    Tip to safer in a fenced area then playing near a road.

    I love how the cat just body checks the dog, stops for a second, gets its bearing, goes back after the dog, and then, after it seems like the dog is away, skids to a halt to return to its people.

    The cat totally shoulder blocked that dog!

  • asdfasdf

    good cat, have some yarn

  • Munihausen

    Awesome cat. 'fraid the dog will be coming to a glue store near you.

  • Frank Bango

    What actually happened....

  • Closet Nerd

    I think the cat was waiting to attack the kid, and the dog just beat him to the punch
    ......just sayin

    I think the cat was waiting to attack the kid, and the dog just beat him to the punch. So, we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

  • asdfasdf

    violent junkie cat all strung out on 'nip
    roming around just looking for something to hurt

  • ODwanKenObi

    This Cat deserves the medal of honor. He should have Holiday named after him as well. What a bad@ss.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    What a flippin legend. Hell hath no fury like a pissed off cat.

  • nanCY

    Saw this a bunch of times and still would like to know where the mom was going after the attack WITHOUT her kid?!

    BTW GW, when they have 2 wheels, they're called bicycles!! (Sorry - had to do it).

  • TalonDesigns

    She went around to the other side of the vehicle to chase off the dog, then the dog actually attacked her.

    The owner came out at that point.

    The dog has since been detained.
