Last weekend the Peterson family noticed a diamondback rattlesnake in their Leesburg backyard. As they were going inside, their cat, Oreo, took matters into his own hands. The feline fought off the venomous reptile.

"He's a little protector," said 10-year-old Jaiden Peterson who got the animal just over a year ago.

Oreo got bitten by the snake during the fight but survived.

"His leg was swollen. It was like his whole entire leg from here and there, and he was bleeding," Jaiden said.

The family was worried about their beloved pet. A bite like the one Oreo had could be fatal if not treated.

Dana Lowe, a veterinary technician, said it’s uncommon to see cats with snake bites.

“We do see it with dogs a little more often that get bit,” Lowe said.

It seems like this feline just wanted to protect his family.

"To be honest with you, I think he was protecting the people of the home because that's just the kind of cat he is," grandmother Cyndi Anderson said.
