On a warm, sunny California day, four-year-old Jeremy was outside quietly riding his bicycle in the driveway. It was a happy day, and all seemed calm and pleasant in the neighborhood.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, the neighbor's dog raced around the corner and began to viciously attack and drag poor little Jeremy on the ground.
Within mere seconds, the most unlikely of heroes bolted in and saved the day.
His best pal, Tara the cat, immediately rushed to the scene and began attacking the violent dog.
The dog quickly began to run away in fear from the angry cat until he was no longer in sight.
After deterring the dreadful canine, Tara ran straight up to Jeremy's side to make sure her sidekick was okay.
It is an absolute miracle that Jeremy didn't suffer from more serious injuries.
His mother was only a few feet away and quickly ran to her son's side, in utter shock at what she had just witnessed.
"I had never seen a dog just shake a child like that, so violently. And so I thought he had hold of his pants. It wasn't until I got there that I saw that he had a hold on him," Jeremy's mother said.
Their neighborhood had security cameras rolling and caught the entire scene.
Thankfully, Jeremy was able to walk away with some stitches but nothing more serious. If it hadn't been for the heroic acts of his trusty feline, he could have been in a much worse situation.
