It is no secret that Glenn is not a fan of cats. In fact, he absolutely hates them. But an amazing viral video featuring a cat literally saving a young boy from the jaws of an attacking dog just might have changed his opinion – ever so slightly – of the furry felines. While Stu found the video impressive, he was unwilling to believe the cat’s heroics were pure. On radio this morning, Stu concocted a conspiracy theory as to who was actually behind the video.
“Did you see the video that was out yesterday? It's insane. It makes me actually like cats a little bit more. Although, I think this is some sort of a ninja cat or a dog in a cat suit. But I've never seen a cat do this before,” Glenn said. “I didn't even click on it because I'm like, ‘I don't like cats. I don't care what this cat is doing.’ And then Pat has it on an endless loop over on his computer, and he's just fascinating by it today. There's a reason to be fascinated by it.”
TheBlaze.com’s article about the video has already been shared some 96,000 times, and the video has gained national attention. In case you haven’t seen the clip, below is the footage courtesy of YouTube:

The boy in the clip is 4-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo of Bakersfield, California. Though he ended up needing a few stiches in his leg, he remains none the worse for the wear. The feline that rushed to his rescue was the Triantafilo family’s cat Tara. In an interview with KERO-TV, Triantafilo described Tara as his “hero.”
While Glenn described the video as “amazing,” Stu took a slightly more cynical approach.
“There's something wrong with this,” Stu said. “You know what I'm thinking? I'm thinking publicity stunt for a cat food. It didn't actually happen. That's my prediction: A publicity stunt for cat food. They're going to come out [and say], ‘If you eat our food your cat will do this sort of stuff.’ Like one of those movie promos that leak out – you think it's real for a few days… I’m just throwing it out there. Luckily, I have absolutely no basis for it whatsoever.”
Ultimately, Glenn believes there is a good chance the video is real because cats are, in fact, smart animals – even if they do remind him of a certain 20th century progressive.
“Cats are not stupid. You know what cats are? Cats are liberal elites. They just think they are better than you,” Glenn concluded. “‘I'm a different species than you. I don't need you. And here's what I'm going to do: I'm going to rub up against your leg, and then you're going to go get me food, and you're going to give me the food I like. You're going to put it right here, and then I'm going to lap it up. I might even sit on your head later. And you're not going to do anything about it.’ It’s like Woodrow Wilson in fur.”
