What are you guys talking about? The mother ran as fast as she could to her child. You do realize that this was surveillance video. Nobody was standing around taking a video. In fact, the parents didn't realize the cat was involved until they saw the video.

A friend of mine had a cat as a child. Every night the cat would lie in a crate in the pantry. They would put a blanket on the cat and shut the door. Then in the morning they would open the door to the pantry and let the cat out.

One night their house caught on fire. The cat managed to open the pantry door and ran to each bedroom door, upstairs, and made sure to wake everyone. My friend is convinced that the cat saved all their lives.

Video of cat saving little boy from dog

Taxy, the extended version of the video showed the mom picking up, then putting the boy down and running in the opposite direction toward the house. It was the first one I saw, on FB.

I've seen a number of versions. I guess you don't really know what you would do in an emergency.

Interesting that the video is no longer available, because the father pulled it. Strange. I wonder how many people have made a comment on the behavior of the mother being questionable, and it was removed. Trust me, if I was the mother, I wouldn't have left my child, no way, no how.

Creative editing. I know when I first saw the video yesterday, a number of people were commenting and questioning the mom's first picking up and then leaving the child. Maybe she went in to call 911? But still. And today's videos left out the closeups of the unstitched bite marks.

Katie H: I like Porky also! I'm sure he would have protected the babies!

You named a Siamese cat Porky?

Perhaps I must hold my tongue. I named my first car Snot and I love her!

With love,
~Cat

I would expect anything from an Ogress with a husband named Shrek, yes?
