    Cat saves boy from dog attack

    I apologize for the language in the article, but you really only need to watch the video.
    Also, if you are squeamish and don't like graphic pictures, stop watching after the boy gets up and walks away.

    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    What a brave kitty, and we are glad mom and boy and kitty made it safely back inside! How strange the dog attacked like that, but what a great kitty to run over and defend her boy!

    Like Karen said, I do think it is so odd how that dog attacked. Good thing the kitty sprung into action so quickly and everyone is okay! I hope that cat was rewarded with the finest feast that night.

    Someone get that cat a big can of tuna!!

    I can't find the link now, but another article about the same attack said that the dog got out of his fenced yard when the owner opened the gate to pull out of his driveway. The dog's owner called 911, and voluntarily handed his dog over to authorities for observation. I'll keep looking for the other article..

    There is another story with an interview with Tara and her boy if you look at the links on the page. Neither boy nor Tara is overly impressed with the television camera or reporter.
