Cat saves boy from vicious Dog attack (VIDEO)
This boys best friend is a cat!
Home security video shows how a Bakersfield, Calif., boy was rescued from a vicious dog by the familys brave feline on Tuesday.
Jeremy Triantafilo, 4, was pedaling his bike when, out of nowhere, a dog sneaked up from behind, bit him and pulled the little guy off his wheels.
As the labrador-chow mix began to drag Jeremy, Tara the cat raced into the picture and threw her little body into the dog, forcing the pooch off the boy.
Tara then chased the dog an 8-month-old named Scrappy away as mom Erica Triantafilo came to the boys side.
Jeremy needed 10 stitches but hell be OK, his mom told the Bakersfield Californian.
Scrappy belongs to a neighbor, and he was voluntarily surrendered to the city pound, police said.
After a 10-day quarantine to determine if hes rabid, the pooch will be put down.
Its un-adoptable, Bakersfield police Sgt. Joe Grubbs told The Post. Were [the city] in a liability issue here. If we adopt it out and it bites someone again, then thats on us.
