Hi everyone! Megan here again. I hope you are having a wonderful spring. I`m really enjoying the cool breeze right now because very soon it will become humid and too hot.
Lately a certain cat video has become famous in the US. The video isn`t the usual "cute cat" video...it shows a cat being a hero! A 3 year old boy was outside on his bike when he suddenly was attacked by the neighbor`s dog. The dog grabbed the boy by the leg and was shaking him when the brave cat ran up and kicked the dog away. The cat then kept chasing the dog to make sure he stayed away. The dog was much bigger than the cat, but the cat was able to save the boy from the dog. Here`s a link to the video: http://youtu.be/EEa6jZv-Khc
Here's an interview with the family: http://youtu.be/Dw9AwaJaVGU
This video is important because it shows that some cats really do love their owners. The stereotype of cats is that they only care about themselves. But this cat (named Tara) risked her own safety to save the boy. So she must care about her human family members.
She is not the only cat to save humans. Another cat named Homer saved his female owner from a home intruder. Moreover, Homer is a blind cat! You can read about Homer the blind "wondercat" in the book "Homer`s Odyssey" .
