A family's cat came to the rescue Tuesday, chasing away a dog who was attacking a young boy.
The boy was riding his bike in his driveway when a neighbor's dog snuck up on him from behind and started biting his leg.
The family's cat, who was also outside, charged the dog and chased it away.
According to NBC affiliate KGET, the boy's mother also tried chasing the dog away and was bitten.
The boy received 10 stiches from his bite and is home recovering. The neighbors have voluntarily had their dog quarantined.
