Have you all seen the video of the cat saving a young boy from a dog attack? It has gone viral on Youtube, and if you haven’t watched it yet, you really must. Here it is.
My husband and I have been discussing this story a lot. What an amazing tale of heroic quick-on-the-spot thinking this is! And the hero is a feline!!!! This is the most unbelievable thing!
We have 3 cats. They are all unique and special in their own way.
There’s Turtle Dove….
And Wilber (our super kitty)
I love my cats, and I can’t help but wonder what would happen in the same circumstance with my kids. Would any one of these cats try to save them?
Clearly, the cat in the video (Tara is her name) risked her own life to save that boy. Her intention was obvious as that dog clamped down on the young child. She pounced on the dog and then even chased him away. This is the most special story, and when discussing the whole debate of dogs vs. cats — this is for sure score 1 for the kitties!
In honor of this incredible animal and her heroic tale, my song of the day is Al Stewart’s “The Year of the Cat,” because that cat needs and deserves a song of the day. She is so special.
