A Youtube video shows a cat as a savior in the last second. As a baby crawls towards the open door and is about to fall down a flight of stairs, the velvet paw acts lightning fast.
Cats may be idiosyncratic and selfish – a Youtube video proves that tigers are more than purring ego-centrists.
To put it in a more positive light: Pets may have a healing effect as friends and family members – this cat has become an active lifesaver.
Baby plays with open door to the stairs!
How exactly it came to the unattended situation is not known. One thing is certain: in a video clip on Youtube a baby innocently plays on the floor. Scary detail: The door of the room is open and leads to a steep staircase.
This also seems to have the cat of the family on the screen. From the sofa, she follows every movement of the little human being.
When the baby finally gets too close to the dangerous outcome on all fours, the protector immediately reigns: With one leap, the cat jumps off the sofa, races to the baby, builds up in front of the toddler and shoves the baby back into the room.
Internet users are critical
Whether it's just as intended or a combination of playfulness and luck: a very important cat action that has probably saved the baby's life.
The parents of the child come in the comments in the social network a lot worse off than the savior on four paws. Irresponsible, many complain leaving the infant with the door open. Others find it dangerous that the baby was alone with the cat.
However you turn it around, the cat kept the baby from a great danger in this case – well done!
