If, like me, you were suspicious about a viral video today that purported to show a dog savagely attack a boy in Bakersfield, Ca. only to be scared off by...a little kitty--well, it seems to be real, not fake, like so many others. At least the local media out there think it is and have given it wide coverage. UPDATE: Kid's family talks to People. Naturally the hero cat is a girl. Also: cat invited to throw out first pitch at Bakersfield minor league ball game next week...too bad Catfish Hunter and 'Bird' Fidrych no longer around. Over 100 years ago there was a big league player name Kitty Bransfield...UPDATE #2: Yes, there's a video of cat "throwing out" first pitch last night.
