A heroic family cat showed her maternal instincts when she spotted a toddler playing with the dials on an oven.
The furry white feline was passing through the kitchen of the house when she spotted the tiny child playing with the oven, turning the switches on and off whilst leaning on the oven door handle.
After attempting to get the baby’s attention by brushing past him, the clever cat realised she needed to take more drastic action if she was to avert a potential disaster.
Seconds later, the cat jumped up and grabbed the toddler’s arms in her paws – pushing him away from the dangerous kitchen appliance.
Thankfully, it appears that the oven was not actually turned on, and there were responsible adults nearby to supervise the child too.
