A YouTube video that has gone viral shows a cat save a boy from a dog that is attacking him.
The YouTube video was posted by Roger Triantafilo and it shows his son being attacked by a neighbor’s dog. Shortly after the dog starts to attack the boy, the family’s cat comes running into the scene and chases the dog away. After this, Triantafilo’s wife can be seen checking her son’s injuries and then double checking to make sure the dog has left. The cat stayed near the family the entire time.
While it can’t be seen in the video, Triantafilo said that his neighbor showed up to restrain his dog. The neighbor was also bitten by the dog while trying to pin it in his yard. After the dog was secured, he came over to help with the child.
Triantafilo’s son had to go to the hospital and get stitches after the dog attack. His father said that he is doing fine.
