Cat saves boy from dog attack

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (WKRC) -- We usually call dogs man's best friend but a cat is competing for that title after saving a little boy from a dog attack in California.

Four year-old Jeremy was riding his bike in Bakersfield when a neighbor's dog came around a parked car. You can see him lunge for the boy, pull him off his bike and bite him. [Click here to see the raw surveillance video of the attack]

Jeremy's cat Tara came to the rescue. She pounced on the dog and sent it fleeing. The dog will be euthanized.

Jeremy needed a few stitches but his mother says his injuries could have been much worse. He says Tara is his hero.
