On this one I think the cat really is trying to keep the baby from going over the threshold. You can see the cat gets very aggressive pushing the baby back away from the stairs. It's very possible that this cat sees the baby as just another kitten to be protected.
Cats do take on babies of other species as their own responsibility. When I had two baby cockatiels, my cat at the time would sit and stare at the cage. I thought she was just waiting for her chance. One day, I was in the other room and they got out of the cage. I walked in to find her sitting guard over them - and she immediately turned her head toward me and I swear she started yelling at me until I came and picked them up and put them back where they belonged.I think the cat was guarding already. Did you notice that it stayed until the kid moved away again and then starting playing?
I guess it was her mother instinct that kicked in.
I'm more surprised obviously a human is filming it all without interfering. There is camera movement.
The cat keeps jumping on the baby, even after it's far away from the stairs. The rescue was probably random, but hey, what a good thing anyway, right?
