Watch: Meet the amazing ‘hero’ cat who saved little boy from vicious dog attack

This is the hero cat who chased off a neighbour’s pet dog when it attacked a four-year-old boy.

The tabby, a four-year-old animal called Tara, curls up next to Jeremy Triantafilo at his home in Southwest Bakersfield, California, as he is interviewed by ABC News following video of the attack being uploaded to YouTube this week.

Jeremy, who suffers from autism, can be seen in the video stroking Tara while perched on a sofa; a bandage around his leg clearly visible.

‘She’s a hero! She has whiskers,’ the little boy gleefully told the interviewer, before leaning in to kiss the cat on the head.

‘Oops, she jumped!’ he added as she leaped down.

Is she better than any cat in the world? ‘Yes’ he said. And she really is.

And just in case you missed it – here is the original footage.
