A family cat chased off a stray dog that was attacking their young son as he played outside. The news article has a video that the boy's father posted. Be warned though that there are fairly graphic images of the boy's injury at the end of the video.

I'm showing this video to my cats in hopes of inspiring them to be this badass.

Wow...that cat charged out like a shot.
That stupid dog stalked and attacked the kid in his own yard..what I wonder is why mom didn't immediately scoop him up and take him inside instead of running off and having him follow her inside.

Cool how the cat ran off after the dog only so far then skidded to a halt and returned to its family to make sure the kid was ok. Awesome.

Give that cat the royal treatment!

That little mutt has bite though. That's going to leave a mark, hopefully only a physcial one.

That mutt needs to be caught and tested for rabies.
I mean, what a vicious beast that it deliberately went after the child.

The injuries were scary enough on his leg, didn't know of the ones on his tum-tum. Poor kid...

That cat really let the dog have it...good kitty.

Hopefully, But I remember when I was a kid the people across the road used to have a terrier which used to try and attack me every time I left the house, I've never trusted a dog since but I find the smaller dogs worse.

What a vicious attack on that little boy, that was hard to watch.

I don't know what! the mother was doing running off?

I've never seen a cat react like that. What a hero!

My wife had a pitbull come in the yard and start toward her and her cat jumped on the dog's nuts.  She said the dog must have yip for  a mile.  Never underestimate a cat. I bet they are glad the didn't de-claw their cat.

ABC just aired this on national news. That cat is bad to the bone and went after the dog with a fury I've never seen in felines before. They need to take the cat to a fish market and let it have whatever it wants.

As a kid my cat protected me from the neighbours dog. The dog made the mistake of walking up our driveway without my neighbour. The dog was the softest dog ever, wouldn't harm anyone, but that didn't stop my cat chasing it off.

The mother was probably making sure the dog was going to stay away. Otherwise we might have needed the cats heroics again while she gets bitten in a stre of vulnerability cradling the child.

Anyway. Great cat. When my other cat was alive. If he was getting chased my current cat would wait around the corner and pounce on the pursuer. A tag team with good chemistry. Cats are definitely under appreciated when it comes to these sort of things.
