Cat Who Rescued Young Boy Wins Hero Dog Award

A cat that gained viral fame after rescuing a little boy in Bakersfield, California by fighting off a dog that attacked its six-year-old owner as he rode his bicycle in the family’s driveway, has been given a Los Angeles shelter’s Hero Dog Award.

It was the first time ever that the award was given to a cat. The Society for The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals had to scratch out “dog,” and etch “cat” on the trophy instead...

Did anyone even think to ask the cat if s/he identified as a cat?  Maybe s/he is a dog trapped in a cat's body.

Ah, that explains why I did not recognize it, since that is the one major film that for various reasons I have not had a chance to watch.  Literally every time I have attempted to view that film, which is right up my alley (I love "hotel horror" and the principal actor), some mysterious preternatural force has intervened to stop me.

I was just recommended by someone to get a pet....preferably a cat.

I've never had a cat....nor a dog....but, I've owned fish....and cried when they died.  Not sure I'm ready for a mammal.

You can get a turtle, they will live 30-40 years in average, some even 70. :)

Yes, they even bite you to show their affection.  :P

Cats can live 15-20 years, so you've got some time before you have to worry about it dying. It isn't like a big dog that might only live 7-8 years.

Like all animals it depends on the breed and their individual "personalities". Some turtles are "wilder" and will always consider you to be a potential predator. But others are so used to human company that if you let them loose around the house they will prefer to stay where you are.

Kitty cats are fun! Some are loners, others like to hang out with the humans. I've volunteered at shelters, and cat care was one of my favorite things to do.

Dogs are more people-oriented. I think you will enjoy any type of pet, you just have to think about the care requirements and decide if you like going for walks or not. :)

I agree.  I had for 13 years a massive Siamese cat, who at the peak of his physical prowress weighed 22 lbs and had a tail 15" long.

By the way I did finally manage to see the Shining, and it was rather exquisite; only Kubrick could make such an elegant horror film.

His Holiness Alexis II, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia.  Photographic evidence that he was also a wonderworker with the ability to levitate cats.  In turn, he is fondly remembered as a great defender of Russian poultry.

Visit shelters and see how you get along with the animals there. Only adopt the one that clicks just right with you. The best coexistence comes when the animal chooses you, not the other way around.

50 stunning facts about cats

3 is fake for my cat. I've read before cats do not have tastebuds for sweet taste but mine likes sweet pastry or coffee with sugar for example.

As for 38 my whole family would mourn as well.

44 is imo fake as I read reports cats see at least some colours (at least they differ between red and blue).


Ummmm....will they tolerate being cuddled?  ;)

Mine used to bite my father's toe for no reason. And liked to scare my cat. But he used to try to run away and for 3rd or 4th time he run away for good.
