Feline worried! Protective cat BITES her owner to ‘rescue’ crying baby from his arms
- Baby boy Demarkus was being cuddled by father Angelo when he began to cry
- Their one-year-old cat Cecilia leapt to his defence and bit the doting father
- Mother Dewanie said the moggie was being protective because she heard crying
- Video clip was filmed at their family home in Davao City, the Philippines
This is the moment an overly protective pet cat bit her owner to force him to let go of his crying baby.
One-year-old moggie Cecilia became ‘worried’ when baby Demarkus started to cry as his father Angelo tried to get him to sleep and leapt to the boy’s defence.
The footage was filmed at their family home in Davao City, the Philippines.
In the video, Cecilia is sat watching as Angelo tries to get his son to sleep.
But still in the mood to play, Demarkus kicks up a fuss as his father cuddles him to get him ready for a nap.
The baby’s cries appear to worry the cat who then climbs onto Angelo before biting him on his arms and back in an attempt to ‘free’ Demarkus.
Angelo doesn’t appear to feel the cat at first but soon her bites dig a little deeper and he is forced to leave the baby on the bed.

The boy’s mother Dewanie Catapang said it was the baby’s nap time but he still wanted to play so he started to cry.
She said: ‘Our baby wanted to play more but it was already his nap time. His dad held him so he cried.
‘We didn’t realize it would make our cat worried. She was trying to protect him.’
