    This cat is a true hero, IMO.
    It basically saved the boys life.

    The cat got all "Back off!! Ayeeeeyaaaaaaaa!!!


    Very commendable for the cat.

    As for the dog...I hope they don't kill him but definitely try to get him retrained and away from his owners. Wonder what they have to say about all of this.

    I agree, awesome video. Like dogs, cats can have a very strong sense of 'pride' (family) and territory. I've never seen one do this before but having always been a cat lover, I can totally believe it. That dog looked like he was going in for the kill. Seriously WTF was up with that animal?

    Amazing Cat!

    As for the dog...I feel sorry for him/her. I wonder how the owners raised and treated it.
    From my experience, there are no bad dogs, only bad owners.

    I finally watched this, today.
    And, you're correct that the cat very likely saved the boy's life.
    Awesome.

    I wonder what made that dog decide that the poor little kid was perfect lunch? Had that cat, or the mom not showed up when they did, that kid didn't stand a chance.
    Not sure what should be done with the dog.. but if that was your child, what would you do?

    The video doesn't make sense.

    Why does the mother run away from the cat? leaving her son in the dust?

    OK. Yeah.
    My cats hate kids and woman for some reason.

    -why do they have multiple surveillance cameras set up and recording?

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI'm so glad the kid was saved.

    But isn't curious that there were two cameras filming this? Didn't anyone pick up on this? It also has a professional and polished edited quality to it.


    I think that is attributable to having multiple security cameras on the property that the "father" edited into a single coherent video. I still don't understand the mother's actions at all.

    I had a male cat that was very territorial. Any dog that came into "his" yard got attacked, including German Shepherds. Granted, the cat was huge himself, a 23-pounder (and lean, not fat, as big as a small dog himself), but he drove more dogs out of the yard than I can count, and I wasn't ever being threatened, like that poor little boy was. Every dog ran from him, none ever fought back.

    I saw the video this morning on the "Today" show, it was totally awesome and surprising. I think they said the cat had been a family member longer than the kid so I'm sure the
    aggressive nature of the dog wasn't appreciated in that cat's territory! lol

    Not sure what should be done with the dog.. but if that was your child, what would you do?

    Sue the dog's owner's for all medical expenses. Did you see those bite wounds, and the stitches needed to close them? And possibly sue for pain and mental anguish, to include for the mother, who witnessed it.

    The dog owners are clearly liable in my view. Their dog, and they let it run loose. The boy was doing nothing wrong, no provocation, innocently playing in his own yard. The dog just ran up and viciously attacked him. Undoubtedly a dangerous animal they likely needs to be put down.

    I'll bet the boy's parents are patting themselves for having installed surveillance cameras. I think the video makes it a slam-dunk case. The dog owners shouldn't contest, just settle for the best deal they can get.
