It is true that some cats can be very protective of their owners. Whether or not a cat is protective of their owners, their territory, or other animals or children in the household really just depend on the cat’s breed, personality, environment, and relationship or bond with its owner.
There have even been some instances when cats have attacked intruders in their home or dogs or other animals that have snuck into their yard to protect their owners from harm. One case that has been reported on television and in the news involved a paraplegic man who was sitting outside on his laptop with his cat when three individuals tried to rob him and take the laptop from him. To the thug’s surprise, the man’s cat jumped up and attacked them, chasing them off and saving the day. Talk about loyalty!
