A brave feline has proven that cats can be just as loyal as man's best friend, by saving its young owner from a dog attack on a California street on Tuesday.
In the footage entitled My cat saved my son, which appears to have been shot by a CCTV camera, a young boy is seen riding his bike on a driveway next to a parked car.
A shot taken from a different angle then shows a sandy-coloured dog trot into view on the opposite side of the stationary vehicle, and run up to the child.

In The Flesh star Emily Bevan has revealed that she sometimes feels like an outsider when she is in character.
The actress, who plays spirited zombie Amy Dyer in BBC Three's supernatural drama, admitted she has been on the receiving end of some odd looks while they film on location, but said she doesn't mind because the experience allows her to identify with her character.
"It's quite interesting being dressed as a zombie and standing around in a village in Lancashire. You get a lot of kids go past [looking shocked]," she said.
"Most of the time, you're just like 'Whatever' but sometimes, you think, this is what it feels like to be 'other', really really 'other' and to be pointed and looked at. It was really uncomfortable and that was very useful to experience."
Emily, who stars alongside Luke Newberry in the show, revealed her alter-ego Amy will return to the fictional village of Roarton as a different person than before.
"At the beginning of this series, she's found out that she is part of this organisation that has made her feel good about herself and has given her a sense of purpose," she said.
"There's this incredibly charismatic character, played by Emmet J Scanlan, who she is very under the influence of and who she's excited by. She's coming back stronger to Roarton, newly indoctrinated with a new set of ideologies."
She said the show's success is because it tackles subjects that are familiar: "The characters we are portraying are not glossy and perfect model teenagers. They are confused, and that's very real stuff that people can relate toREAD MORE

Police who picked up a Kinder Surprise egg on a Manchester street this week were shocked to find it did not contain a wind-up toy car or a small statue of Snow White, but wraps of crack cocaine and heroin.
It appears dealers were using the snacks' plastic inserts to conceal drugs, with the benign-looking shells transporting illegal substances worth hundreds of pounds.
The capsules were discovered by officers on patrol on St Mary's Hall Road in Crumpsall on Monday, with a Greater Manchester Police spokesman saying it was "a surprise" to find the Class A drugs inside.
According to the BBC, he added that it was a "disappointment" that the egg had not contained a toy.
Police say they want to hear from anyone who may have information about the drugs.
The incident echoes another case of drugs being concealed in mass-produced food items earlier in the year, when a McDonald's read more
