4.19.13 Cat Saves Dog2

Sammy the cat might fight with Izzy the dog all the time, but Sammy will fight for Izzy anytime.  That’s what happened recently when a bigger dog attacked tiny terrier Izzy.

The bigger dog assaulted Izzy and got a hold of her in its mouth.  Izzy’s stomach was punctured by its teeth, and worse injuries were likely to come.  Just in time, Sammy came to the defense of his canine sibling.

Sammy puffed himself up and distracted the bigger dog.  It dropped Izzy, who was snatched up by her owners and rushed to a vet.

“The big dog saw the cat, dropped Izzy, took off after the cat. The family was able to pick up Izzy to bring her in here,” said veterinarian Kittsen McCumber.  “The cat got away safely up a tree and literally saved this dog’s life.  The family said what’s ironic is that Izzy chases that cat all the time, and the kitty must have felt a loyalty to Izzy and raced over there and squared off with the bigger dog.”

Izzy suffered extensive damage, but is expected to make a full recovery.
