BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (May 14, 2014) – A heroic cat saved the day after a little boy was attacked while riding his bike.

Surveillance video captured the whole thing.

The boy was on his bicycle when a dog comes from behind and bites his leg.

Leave it to Tara—the family cat—to come to the rescue. The video shows the cat rushing to save the boy and chase the dog away.

The boy needed some stitches but is otherwise doing fine, his mother told ABC23.

The dog belongs to a neighbor and is now being watched more closely.
