Let me start off by saying I have never been a cat person. I have one dog which is outside in a fence, and 2 inside dogs who I couldn't bribe to be outside. I had a cat show up on my back deck a year ago, and she was probably 6 months old. I never messed with her or really gave her the time of day.
My 2 year old son plays outside, and when he does this cat always comes around. He seems to like her and she's gentle with him so I just let it be.
Today my son and I were outside near my back deck playing and I noticed the cat sitting on the wooden railing of my deck. I heard a growl/bark and see a pitbull charging us growling and barking. I grabbed my son and attemped to make it to the door to get him inside. As im doing this, the little female cat flies off the porch at the pit completely fearless of this dog. I got my son inside, grabbed my firearm and went outside to see the cat still chasing the pit down the street.
I called animal control and they picked up 2 pits, one being the one who charged me. I never saw the second one at the time but they said they were together further down the neighborhood. They said both pits were ate up with bite marks around their snouts indicating they have been fought. When all was said and done, I sat down on my deck and rubbed the cat for about an hour. This cat is now named kit kat, and she is going to be well taken care of and part of my family now. I'm still amazed at how fearless this tiny female cat was running down a big male pit without hesitation.
