If that cat had been armed with a handgun it could have taken out the dog before it even bit the small child and it should be noted than no NRA Card Carrying Cat has ever been involved in a shooting outrage.

The latitude for discussion in that forum regarding the issues surrounding this topic is more restrictive.

Meh, I see the same stories posted in many forums. I get the OPs point, I'm just wondering how many others get it.

I do like the "NRA Card Carrying Cat" idea, however.

This story is more about people not being responsible with their dogs, since a child was brutally attacked, and it was captured on video.

The dog doesn't even appear to be angry or violent, until it suddenly attacks the child, for no apparent reason.

I am sure it just adds to insurance cost of guard dog ownership. Renewed lately with a new company? I did and they would not insure with certain breeds owned. That is one brave cat; but likely instinct like any animal coming to rescue.

I used to have a cat who attacked anyone for no reason. Very evil little kitty.
But he was German ( born ) and his name was Fritz so that was fitting ..lol

but without the cat rushing in to save the day, we wouldn't be hearing or talking about it. it would be just another one of the 4.5 million dog bites per year.

You must have missed it:

1.The mother "may" have been a racist. Did you see any minorities included in the story?!!?
2. Clearly, we need more government regulations for dogs.
3. Mother probably had to drive out of county for boy's stitches, since due to Obamacare, many hospitals are now out of network.
4. That white SUV in the driveway is a gas guzzler. (Can't you hear the hole in the ozone ripping wider!!?)
5. If we had lower taxes, the dog owners could afford a fence In their yard.
6. And somehow, of course, it was totally Bush's fault.
