Cats often appear to be dispassionate and indifferent about the events and happenings in the house. Thus, they are often thought to be disloyal to their owners or simply pets that you can never rely upon for help. Many would say that cats are the complete opposite of loyal, helpful dogs.
But one cat recently proved that wrong after it repeatedly tried to protect a baby from what it perceived to be danger at the balcony where the little one is playing.
In a video that has gone viral on Twitter, the cat could be seen standing guard by the railings of a balcony. It looks like a balcony from a condo unit at a high-rise building, but they seem to be at the lower floors, judging from the trees that can be seen in the distance.
This cat is definitely not just an indifferent creature trying to enjoy the sights from his spot. Instead, it was seated on high alert as it watched the toddler wandering to the balcony and grabbing the railings. Somehow, the cat understands that falling from that height can truly be a danger to the kid. Thus, it stood guard to make sure that the kid is safe.
At first, the cat looks hard at the older folks in the house as if he’s trying to tell them that the kid could be in danger. When the adults looked unfazed and one was even filming the moment, the cat looked a bit puzzled but it went back to guarding the kid.
It was obvious that the cat was really trying to get the kid to safety because each time the kid touches the railings, the cat would take a swipe at the child’s hands. When the child tried to move away from the cat but still continued on reaching for the railings, the cat followed and continued its task of getting the kid’s hands off!
This is really a smart and protective kitty! Are yours also like this? Check out this video:
