Tabby cat is protective of toddler

A cute video (partly speeded up) of a beautiful and slightly overweight grey, classic tabby cat protecing their toddler friend and companion. The cat seems to intervene, for example, to stop the toddler falling off a bedside chest of drawers. There is definitely something going on. Perhaps the cat is a female and her mothering instincts have blossomed in her relationship with the young human. She appears to treat the toddler as her child.

Please refresh the page if the video fails to play properly. Sorry if that happens.
