Re: Maybe everyone has seen this - "A cat saves a child from the jaws of a dog"
It looks good on the video. However, I am not at all sure of what really happened.

As far as I know, it is not normal for cats to be protective of children. I've heard of a cat going after a bird, and if a child (or adult) happens to be in the way, then the child (or adult) will get a bit scratched up.

Dogs protective of children -- yes, that happens. I'm not so sure about cats.

A cat going after a dog -- yes, that happens too, but usually not to save a child.

Re: Half and half cat
Chimera

Yes, this was my guess.

You occasionally see that in people, mostly noticeable in the hair color. DNA testing for a chimera would be interesting for this cat.
