A Heroic Act Of Love: Courageous Cat Rescues Boy From Dog Attack

By

This fearless cat's nerves of steel will have you in tears.
 

By nature, cats are curious creatures whose sneaky sense of adventure often gets them into troubling situations. However, as one of the most compassionate animals, they are known to put themselves in danger to rescue their owner. That's exactly what a Calfornia family's cat did when a neighbor's dog began attacking their four year old son, Jeremy Triantafilo. Tara (a stray who was adopted into the family six years ago) put one of her 9 lives at risk by heroically going after the dog and interfering with the attack. Tara’s courage and compassion saved the young boy’s life and captured our hearts.
