You can’t turn your back on a toddler, not even for a second. They have a way of getting into trouble everywhere, but it’s especially important to keep an eye on them in the kitchen. In a very short amount of time, they could get very hurt. There are plenty of dangers around: drawers with sharp knives, the cleaning products under the sink, and most of all, that hot oven!
We do our best to keep them out of harm’s way, but sometimes, despite our best efforts, our children can find themselves close to danger. So its nice to know that our family pets are there to keep a watchful eye out for their safety. They will go to great lengths to protect them if they think they are in trouble. Like the incredible video of the cat protecting a toddler when the babysitter broke a glass, or this national news story on a dog who saved a newborn baby from an abusive babysitter, our pets are there for us when we need them most.
So when the family cat in this video watches the little boy about to open the hot oven, he springs into action. He jumps up on the boy, grabs his arm with his paws, and pushes him away, getting between the boy and the oven. Fortunately, the parents were nearby, but it’s nice to know that when they are not, this kitty has their back!
