Dogs and cats are known for being sworn enemies, which is why people are so stunned by what one Idaho cat did to save her canine companion.
This past weekend, Michaella Franklin had plans to work around the house and yard, but her day took an unexpected turn when a neighbor’s large dog showed up in her garage as she was working. “It just kind of looked at me and I’m looking around like, where is the owner of this dog?” Franklin said. “Then it saw my dog and it ran into my garage, and my dog kind of hunkered down for safety and it just mauled her.”
“Then it saw my dog and it ran into my garage, and my dog kind of hunkered down for safety and it just mauled her.” Franklin tried to pull the vicious dog off her seven-year-old spaniel named Bailey, but the dog’s grasp on her own was too strong. “It seemed like it went on for ten or fifteen minutes,” Franklin said.
Thankfully, Franklin’s cat, Mocha, heard the attack and came to investigate. When he saw his best friend bloodied and battered, he didn’t hesitate to take on the aggressive dog. While Mocha had the dog distracted, Franklin was able to grab Bailey and rushed her to the vet.
“Bailey is alive today because of my cat, Mocha, without a doubt,” Franklin said. Thanks to Mocha’s selflessness and bravery, Bailey was able to get help in time and is now safely back at home recovering with her protector. “They’re like brother and sister.”
