Cat saves baby from falling down staircase

This remarkable video from Colombia shows the moment a cat leaps into action to save a baby from a nasty fall.
It seems that dogs are not the only household pets capable of lending a helping hand (or paw).

The footage, which recently came to light after it was posted on a Facebook group dedicated to cat videos, shows an attentive feline rushing to stop a young child falling down a flight of stairs.

The video starts off with the youngster crawling on the floor towards an open door at the top of the stairs. Seemingly aware of what's about to happen, the cat can be seen jumping up and rushing at speed across the room before physically grabbing the baby and pushing it away from danger.
A photograph of the staircase, which is very steep, was later posted to corroborate the video.

So did the cat really anticipate that the child would fall and run to help or was it simply playing around and just happened to have rushed over at that exact moment ?

Perhaps cats are a lot more protective of humans than we give them credit for.

You can check out the video for yourself below.

Intelligence: the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations. Our supposed superiority as humans is mere pretense.

The cat is part of family, and family stick together.

i think almost any cat could  add 2 and 2, and know what would happen,  just not many would do something about it, cats are not pack animals, they do not always care about anything else.  it is not in them. not in all of them that is

Where were the parents?

Yep,  where are the parents and where is the stair gate?  And what is all over the carpet?   So is this cat there to act as the stair gate. Good on the cat,  but quite frankly K would be embarrassed to let people see this. It is horrendous this child is allowed to roam about near an open stair case,  cat or no cat.
