I had no idea cats could be like that. Usually it is dogs. I always assume cats are assholes and would probably push you off. This wasn't even a mistake either. The cat was clearly pushing against the kid. GG.

Still though:

Sad fate for the baby. I hope it's okay.
Nevermind. TURNS OUT CATS ARE STILL CONFIRMED ASSHOLES. FUCK.

More cats protecting their small human children.
UPDATE 3:

I was watching this video and I was very moved by how these cats seemed to be very.... caring for the babies. For that reason alone, I will return that point I previously took away. Thanks.

Seems to go for the nape as it would a kitten but realises it’s not working and then goes for the body-block. What a champ.

Thought this was gonna be a cat just happening into heroism somehow, but gosh that cat really does just rush to save the baby.

Hero cat!

What my cat would have done

This cracked me up pretty hard lmfao.

It was crazy to see the cat watch the whole situation and when the baby appearing to just be going full steam towards the steps the cat clearly shot for it and did all they could to stop the baby. Afterward, they observed to make sure the baby wasn't trying to proceed anymore. That's pretty awesome. I saw the pictures of those steps too... That baby would have been in serious trouble and was a lot closer to the steps than I could have known.

The whole housing setup looks kinda wild too like the crib is tilted? and there's all kinds of stuff all over. I'm just wondering who was supposed to be watching this baby.

My cats have saved our lifes more times than I can count. Last time was when my mother had an internal bleeding and our two cats woke up everyone and took us to her.

Only asshole owners have asshole cats

Seems like the cat was just playing. Looks like it was just a coincidence. At the beginning the cat and the baby are playing then the baby crawls away. The cat wants to continue and pounces. I doubt it did anything to prevent anything, it just wanted to be amused for a bit longer. Fucking cats.

There was this one cat that my dad's cat had around the same time I was born. It and I were inseparable, it used to be around me all the time and I would play with it a lot. There was a story my dad told me of this one time I was about to fall it actually came to grab and hold me a bit like in this video I presume (as I don't remember it).

I recall hearing that mammals are kinda' programmed to find other mammal babies cute and to be protected, like how we as humans find puppies, kittens and other baby mammals cute, other mammals can also find other types of mammal babies cute, including human babies. I'm pretty certain from that video that the cat had the protective "must protect baby" instinct with that baby.

Tortie Siameses are awesome, we have 4 siamese cats, one is a tortie and she is just such an awesome cat. But then again, they all are.

why was the baby left unattended crawling around by a set of treacherous stairs with no baby gate but also under the care of someone so paranoid they were filming every moment?

nonetheless praise cats

I've seen a few tweet responses similar to this.

Sometimes I don't know what yall be seeing... or maybe yall just like to look for something different in things.

My coworker's cat woke her up because her house was on fire and saved both of their lives. Pessimist would say it was just saving itself but I'm sure if the cat wanted it would have left her there if it was strictly self preservation.

The baby was in the crib, but escaped from it.


"Diana Lorena Álvarez, 27, wanted to know how her one-year-old Samuel León had got out of his crib when she’d left him sleeping on October 31. But the mother, from Bogotá, Colombia, was not prepared for the scene that would play out on security camera footage, showing her cat heroically rescuing her son."

It was probably a time traveling cat sent back to guard a baby that grows up to be future-Hitler.

Yeah I know cats and this isn't saving. Its playing with the baby. The baby turned its back which made it pounce. This isn't like that cat saving kid from dog situation.

I don't like cats, never have. But that's a damn fine cat worthy of respect and admiration.

That is an amazing video.

And OP, your assumptions about about cats are as common among dog lovers as they are incorrect. They’re not assholes, they are amazing pets if treated properly. Just like dogs.

edit: lol at people trying to paint the cat as evil ITT
