The 4-year-old Jeremy from California has had a horrible accident with the neighbors’ dog. He suffered really bad injuries but it could have been worse hadn’t it been for his family cat. The brave animal possibly saved the little boy’s life by attacking the vicious dog.
A CCTV footage shows Jeremy playing on his bicycle when the dog suddenly attacks him from behind. The boy doesn’t even see the hostile canine when it grabs him by the leg, pulls him to the ground and shakes him vigorously. At that point the cat owned by Jeremy’s family and named Tara leaped into action. She startled the dog by jumping at it and it ran away while the cat chased it for a short while. In the mean time Erica Triantafilo, Jeremy’s mother, who was watering trees nearby, came and pulled her son to safety. Jeremy had to have stitches done but otherwise he is doing fine. The boy’s parents are extremely grateful to their cat Tara and explain it could have been worse if it wasn’t for her.
