Just when we were all ready to dismiss house cats as selfish and only out from themselves, this happens. This hero cat took it upon itself to save a child from a vicious dog that seemed poised to drag him across the yard, and who knows how that might've ended.

Just when it seemed this poor kid was doomed, ol' Puss'n Boots comes flying in from nowhere, stops the dog, and then runs it off. The cat even returns to the boy, it seems to make sure he's okay.

And don't think I hate cats, I don't. We always had one or two while I was growing up, I'm cool with cats. But c'mon, none of saw this coming. This cat is a hero.
