Watch this cat save a little boy from an attack dog!

A family cat from Bakersfield, California saved this little boy's life. The dog, as you can see in the video, viciously attacked the little boy. Then out of nowhere, his cat rescued him by attacking the dog.

It was all caught on surveillance video. You can clearly see the little boy was just minding his business and riding his bike. The dog comes from around the parked car and just starts to pull and bite at the little boy's leg.

The cat, named Tara, comes flying in and attacks the dog in heroic fashion.

According to ABC Channel 7, the mom said the boy is OK and it could have been a lot worse. She's just thankful her son is alive!
