BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (WOOD) – A family’s cat saved the day after it scared off a dog that was attacking a 4-year-old boy – and it was all caught on camera.

A video titled “My cat saved my son” was uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday, showing surveillance video of the ordeal, which occurred in a Bakersfield, Calif. neighborhood, according to NBC News.

In the video, the little boy is seen riding his bike up a driveway, when a dog ran into the yard, approached the boy and then bit him, dragging him down the drive.

But the boy’s cat wasn’t far away and quickly lunged at the dog, chasing it out of the driveway and scaring it off, according to the video.

NBC News said its affiliate KGET reported that the boy’s mother also tried to chase the dog further away, but it bit her, too.

The boy received 10 stitches in the incident and is now back at home, NBC News reported.
