It’s pretty amazing when animals go into hero mode. In this case a cat was watching a toddler from the couch. I am not sure in the baby got out of the play pen, but there was no one else around but the cat. As the baby started crawling toward the stairs, the cat did work. It first looks like the cat is trying to attack, but that was for sure not the case.

The cat jumps in front of the baby, and literally puts it’s paws up to help block the baby from falling. Amazing.
