We didn’t believe our eyes when we saw this amazing video of a hero cat who comes to a little boy’s rescue in California following a vicious dog attack.

Jeremy Triantafilo, 4, was riding his bike in front of his Bakersfield, Calif. home when a dog snuck up from behind, bit him and dragged him off of it. Jeremy’s cat, Tara, then raced onto the scene, hurling herself at the dog and chasing him away.

The little boy, who has mild autism, needed stitches, but he will be OK. The dog will be put down after a 10-day quarantine to determine if he has rabies.

Jeremy says Tara the cat is a hero.

Watch Trace Gallagher's report from The Kelly File below. In the video above, check out Elisabeth Hasselbeck's interview with Triantafilo family on Friday's Fox and Friends.
