Giampy:
That cat did a full flying kick into the dog!

It seems to me a blow of Taekwondo.

mouser:
One of the cool things about the interview video is it becomes clear how much of a gentle giant that cat really is.  She's very laid back and tolerant of the kid.  Makes it all the more amazing to see her run in and launch herself at the dog in the first video.

Giampy:
The doubt is: did the cat attack the dog to defend its little owner or because the dog was simply an unwelcome intruder?

No it doesn't. Animals are generally tolerant of those that they have bonded with. It's their way of acknowledging a family unit. Now if a member of that bonded family is threatened - since they don't suffer any of the idiotic societal notions we people have concocted - the response, quite predictably, is and will be sudden, hostile, and without warning ... As it should be.

there are lots of videos of cats defending territory or in general antagonizing a dog that is in their area -- but such videos show very different behavior than what we see in the video above.

In such territorial cases the cat approaches with claws front, back up and attempts to scare off and intimidate the intruder, etc.

Wheras in the video above the cat launched her whole body at the dog so forcefully that she becomes disoriented afterwards.  I've never seen a video of a cat do that -- has anyone else here seen such behavior before?
