Home security video posted to YouTube by Roger Triantafilo shows his 4-year-old son being saved by the family cat.
Triantafilo says the dog approached his son and viciously attacked him while he was riding his bike in the front yard in Bakersfield, Calif. A stray-looking dog sneaks around the back of an SUV and bited the boy.
The cat comes to the rescue with an equally formidable response:
The boy was taken to the hospital and had 10 stitches. The boy's mother said the neighbor who owns the dog had it voluntarily quarantined.
