A cat has been filmed apparently saving a baby from crawling down a steep flight of stairs, incredibly using its paws to push the child back into the room and away from danger.
The clip was shared in a Facebook group called Fundacion Gatos Bogotanos en Adopcion, where people post cat-related content.
In the video, you can see a baby crawling around on the floor next to its crib, while a cat looks on from the sofa. The baby begins to crawl across the floor towards a door – where there is a staircase just off-camera.
With no one else in the room, the cat jumps down from the sofa and rushes over to the baby, pouncing gently on the child to stop them from moving further.
Somehow, the cat manages to literally push the baby back into the room, pushing its front legs at the infant to coax them away from the staircase.
A photo of the staircase was also posted in the group, showing just how hairy the situation could have been.
According to reports, the incident took place in Bogotá and was discovered by the boy’s mother, Diana L, Á, 27, when she wanted to find out how her son, Samuel Leon, managed to get out of the cradle.
