WATCH: Family cat saves boy from dog attack

Dog Cat fight

(WTVR) – A California man posted some pretty incredible video to YouTube today. It appears to be video from a home security system that shows the family cat springing to action and fighting off a stray dog that attacked the man’s son.

Editor’s note: The video ends with images of the boy’s injuries. Viewer discretion advised.

“My cat defends my son during a vicious dog attack and runs the dog off before he can do additional damage,” Roger Triantafilo posted. “Thankfully, my son is fine!”
