What a star that cat! Stick it to the people who say that cats don’t love/ protect their owners like dogs do! Personally, I am neither a dog or cat person, I love all animals, and so hate it when people say they don’t like one or the other. As for putting the dog down, that’s a tough one…. I normally am against that also. I agree it’s the owner’s fault ultimately. And they should be punished, and not allowed to let them roam free if they are not really tame. But some have also killed children…. I don’t think any parent on this planet would be OK with an animal going free, after attacking or especially killing their child. I wouldn’t. I’d probably end up killing it myself. Just saying. It’s easy to say you never would, but it’s not your child being attacked.
