AMAZING VIDEO: Cat saves boy from dog attack in Southwest Bakersfield

A cat came to her best friend’s rescue Tuesday when a young boy was attacked by a dog in his driveway in Southwest Bakersfield and it was all caught on video.

The surveillance video shows the boy, 4-year-old Jeremy, playing on his bicycle. He was coming home from school when he wanted to fly a kite. Jeremy has mild autism.

The neighbor’s dog sneaks up behind him and bites his leg.

The family’s cat, named Tara, rushes the attacking dog and chased it away.
