(Shelby County,TN) Teresa Miller woke up in the middle of the night to her dog barking nonstop.

She grabbed a baseball bat and went to investigate.

That's when she saw a dog running away from her driveway.

She went outside and found the front bumper of her husband's car was damaged.

She woke him up, called the sheriff's department, and they all went to investigate.

They found the couple's 17-year-old cat, Callie, had crawled under the hood of the car.

They think the dog was trying to get to the cat, and chewed up their car in the process.

The family hopes insurance will cover the damage, but they're just happy their cat found a safe place to hide from the dog.
