All you dog lovers out there, let’s pay some respect to this fearless cat Tara that saved a 4-year-old boy from his neighbors’ dog attack in Bakersfield, California on Tuesday.

This shocking video, which was constructed from security cameras’ footage, shows how the dog comes to the boy named Jeremy and suddenly grabs his leg. In a blink of an eye, Tara jumps on the dog to save the child and run the attacker away.

The outcome:  Jeremy, who has mild autism, was left with some stitches, the dog will be euthanized and Tara is the biggest hero in the neighborhood.
