Usually, it's a story of a dog coming to the rescue that we hear about in the news. Today, a family's cat is getting recognition for being a hero. He saved a little boy from a dog attack. A little boy was in his driveway playing when a neighbor's dog attacked his leg. The family cat, Tara, swoops in and chases the dog off. Thankfully, the little boy is ok. He needed some stitches. The dog is under surveillance. (Apparently, he tried to come back and also bit the mom.)

We hope Tara gets some extra special vittles for being a super cat!! -- Cheryl Kaye & Clint

WARNING: THIS VIDEO IS HARD TO WATCH. IT SHOWS THE ATTACK AND THE LITTLE BOY'S WOUNDS AT THE END.
