Poor kid!  Super Cat!  This is an intense video to watch.A 4-year-old boy had his pet cat come to his rescue when he was attacked by a dog outside his home in Bakersfield, Calif.

The family had a surveillance system that shows the young boy on his tiny bike in the driveway on Tuesday.

Then the neighbor's skulking dog sneaks up and launches a blind-side attack on the child, biting his leg and pulling him off his bike to the ground.

Te boy's cat, out of nowhere, runs to the rescue, body-slamming the dog, which runs away with the cat following. The cat then hurries back to the boy, who is being helped up by his mom.

The boy did end up needing several stitches to close open bite wounds on his leg, but his mom said he's doing fine, reported by The Denver Channel.
