Protective Cat Saves Baby From Being Slapped By Dad (Video)


A brave cat came to a baby's rescue after a dad pretended to slap the child.

The pet leapt into action after hearing the man tapping hard on the baby's car seat saying "Naughty baby" repeatedly.

After jumping at the man's hand a couple of times, the cat then took more drastic action when the dad refused to stop 'hitting' at the baby.

Story continues after video...

The cat launches itself at the man's arm, continually throwing its bodyweight at the 'attacker' until he finally stops tapping the baby's seat and leans back onto the sofa bed.

And it looked like the cat may have even managed to sink his claws into the man's arm as he shouts in pain before rubbing his skin.

It appears the clip was set up to test the cat's reactions - and the man never actually harmed the baby.
