TULSA - A mother in Bakersfield, California has posted a video on YouTube that she says shows her cat possibly saving her son's life.
The video was posted May 13, and shows views from what appear to be multiple security cameras.
It depicts a dog, spotting a young boy on a bicycle, and suddenly running around an SUV to attack the child.
He viciously pulls the child down and is biting him when a cat flies into the frame and hits the dog with all four claws.
The dog beats a hasty retreat, with the cat following to make sure it keeps going.
The mom then posts photos of the boy's injuries, which required stitches.
The video is likely to go viral as it has been picked up by media across the country.
