Default Rescue cat

I find this video quite awesome. The one thing I don't understand is why did the mom leave her child outside as she ran back into the house to call for help? Maybe she was just so upset she wasn't thinking but knowing the dog was still out there, I'm wondering why she didn't pick her son up and carry him into the house. But in any case, what about that cat?

Watched on YouTube with the kids last night and then with several people at work today. Pretty amazing. Found it touching that when it was done chasing the dog off, it returned to check on the kid.


Real dogs drool!

I noticed that as well. The video didn't show much after. She could have went back and called rescue. I would have dropped my phone with a OMG moment..... Side note. When I was a kid we had a cat called WC. Witch Cat for long. She would kick the S out of any dog that came through the yard. She was a tough cookie.

People who "hate" cats confuse me. Cats are cool. Too cool for some folks to understand sometimes. I had a cat as a kid that would terrorize the neighborhood dogs. We got a call one day asking us to come get the cat. He had the neighbor's German Shepherd cornered.

I have three dogs and one cat. Petting the cat can calm me much more than petting the dogs. And he's much more silly than the dogs. I enjoy having my cat around.

I have to admit, I am a Kliban fan. Never liked typical house cats, they are way too catty! Barn cats are cool, hard workers, never give you crap and they are always on duty. They have a tough life, lots of dangers when it comes to being small in a barn full of big animals that totaled dont have one brain the size of a single cat.

We had one at a farm I worked at called Spot, lost her 2 back legs in a cow stomp on Christmas eve. Most of the time, it would have been put away but because of the day, they took it to the vet and had them amputate the legs. Spot was one of the best mousers ever, could still walk the vacuum lines above the cows somehow, perfectly balanced, was amazing to watch.

The cat in this story is a cat of another kind, seems much more useful than the parents. I guess it learned some coping skills when it realized its owners were not so smart. Kid gets bit, mom runs away leaving the kid, WTF was she thinking???

Nother thing, Sad that the little ankle biter will be put to sleep, maybe the owners need to be retrained before they are allowed to have another dog....
