Heroic cat now riding to fame after saving 4-year-old boy from dog attack

Tara the cat continues on her ride to fame after saving her 4-year-old human servant earlier this week, reported The Orlando Sentinel May 17.

According to the Sentinel, Tara and Jeremy Triantafilo, the 4-year-old she protected, have been asked to throw the first pitch at a minor league baseball game in Tara's hometown of Bakersfield, California.

This Examiner article covered the story May 14.

As if this weren't enough, TMZ reported Cat Fancy is begging to have Tara appear on their magazine cover, along with an article written by the family about their heroic cat.

Speaking of heroic, Cat Fanciers' Association is planning to present Tara with their first-ever Cat Hero Award at their upcoming awards show.

The family hasn't responded to any of the offers at the time of this article.

No matter what the future holds for Tara, her heroic act caught on video surveillance of putting Jeremy's safety before her own has likely changed the way many people think of cats.

I wonder whether the adoption rate for cats will increase because of Tara? If so, then her bravery has saved many more lives than that of her little master.
