This is simply the most incredible video you will ever see. A small boy was attacked by a dog in Bakersfield, California... only for the boy's cat to pile in and rescue his owner by chasing off the dog.

According to ABC23, the family cat is called Tara, with surveillance video showing the fearless moggie steaming in to the dog to save the 4-year-old.

According to the victim's mother, Erika Triantafilo, her son, Jeremy, needed a few stitches but is doing fine.

The dog, an 8-month-old labrador/chow mix that belongs to a neighbour, is under observation.

"Tara is my hero," Jeremy told ABC23.

Absolutely incredible.
