Cat saves boy from dog attack

Postby waterchan » Thu May 15, 2014 9:08 pm

A stray cat adopted by a California family saves their son from a dog attack.

Watch how the cat comes running to the boy's rescue as he is being pinned to the ground by the dog.

You took the words right out of my mouth Zom. :bow:

But due to limited knowledge on the subject I was not brave
enough to express them.

Kind Regards Paul.

Note that this dog us not the standard, run-of-the-mill pit bull type, but a cross-breed of Chow and LABRADOR - a type usually renowned for their even, friendly and docile temperament.
Don't you believe it.

I have a near-neighbour who is a vet and canine behaviourist.
He is alarmed by the steady and continued increase in domestic incidents involving Labradors turning on their owners, the children and other dogs, on walks.
Labs are manifesting distinctly uncharacteristic and decidedly bad behavioural traits, more and more - a problem that has been perpetuated by too-close familial breeding.

Careful, people : Labradors are steadily gaining a nasty reputation.

Labs now?

I've seen the dogs with nasty reputations as bitters go from Cocker Spaniels in the '50s to Pit Bulls in 2014 and it is always caused by the same thing: Inferior breeding by "puppy mills." When you get a blockbuster movie about Dalmatians, every kid wants one and a few years later you begin seeing stories about kids getting bitten whether Collie or German Shepherd makes no difference. I believe the mental stress in canines caused by terrible breeding and associated conditions is a direct cause of terrible incidents causing bad reputations.

But back to the video:

I slowed it down and watched it frame-by-frame and it's even more amazing watching the cat running at full tilt and launching himself into the air, extending his paws and claws, rotating himself 90 degrees left-to-right and 90 degrees "upright" simultaneously, striking the dog hard enough to push him at least a foot away from the boy, and dropping to four feet while turning to check the boy.

If there was a feline Olympics I'm sure this cat could qualify. :)

The cat is female, and her name is Tara.

Make of that what you will.

The big problem with dogs biting, is that the vastest amount of incidents are not reported, or do not make the news.
This was a phenomenal situation because not only was the incident incredibly unusual, but it just happened to be caught on a security camera.

Bites from "lesser" dogs, such as Chihuahuas, Jack Russell terriers and hitherto so-called 'docile' breeds are largely unheard of on a wide scale; but they are just as serious, even though these dogs may not break the skin.
They still hurt, and are still of huge concern.
And a large part of this is breeding. But a huge part is also human beings who insist on imbuing their pets with human characteristics and understanding which is, of course, both nonsense and dangerous, in that the dog's temperament is grossly underestimated.
