Four-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo, the young boy that was bitten by a neighbor's dog in a vicious attack seen in a video that has gone viral, is recovering from the horrifying incident and his parents are grateful for their cat Tara who saved his life.

 Jeremy, his parents Erica and Roger, and their cat Tara were on the Today show this morning (Thursday) to talk about the scary scene. Erica says the neighbor's dog came out of nowhere and she was shocked to see him shaking her son so vigorously. The next thing she saw was their cat spring into action and fight off the dog. Jeremy received 10 stitches to close a couple of deep wounds. The dog was turned over to animal control and will likely be put down.
