A young boy from Bakersfield, CA was saved from a potentially disastrous dog attack when his family’s fearless feline intervened and chased off the dog.

Surveillance video captured the scary scene as the toddler is seen playing on his bike in his driveway, when a neighbor’s dog sneaks up from behind and attacks him. The dog bit the boy’s leg and dragged him on to the pavement, but luckily, Tara, the family’s cat, rushed over and tackled the dog, chasing him off the property.

The boy’s mother immediately rushed out to help the boy and later told KERO-TV that he needed a few stitches, but he is doing fine now.

YouTube user Roger Triantafilo writes in the video description, “My cat defends my son during a vicious dog attack and runs the dog off before he can do additional damage. Thankfully, my son is fine!”

Warning: the video contains graphic content that may be unsuitable for some.
