Meet Tara The Hero Cat Who Saved Her Young Human Brother From A Murderous Dog Attack!

| Filed under: FamilyPetsAttack!DogCatAmazing

Tara the cat is totally a hero who saved her brother from a vicious dog attack! Way to go, Tara!

Tara the cat is a true American hero!

She's the kitty who saved Jeremy, her four-year-old human brother, from a vicious dog attack.

One day, Erica and Roger Triantafilo were followed home by Tara from a Bakersfield, California park. That was about six years ago and Tara has been their pet ever since!

Even though Erica is allergic to cats! They must reallllllly love their kitty!

Talking about the attack on his son, Roger said:

"It's pretty amazing to see just a cat take on a dog and selflessly put herself out there. That dog did not even know what hit him."

The family said their kitty has always been protective of Jeremy, even sleeping in his crib when he was a baby.

Tara also loves her two younger twin human brothers.

Speaking about her kitty baby, Erica said:

"She's the most mellow cat you've ever seen. All our boys love her… and she loves them right back."

This is all just so incredible!

What's amazing is this hero cat is getting everything she deserves and more… she'll be throwing out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game next week!!

Seriously… She's going to throw out the first pitch for the Bakersfield Blaze, a class A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds!

That's hilarious and wonderful! Tara and Jeremy will take to the pitcher's mound together!

So great! Way to be a true hero, Tara!!

    Is Oprah going to exploit this too….

    That is a great cat, but the dog was a ill-trained puppy (8 months), allowed to get out of the owner's yard. This is the OWNER'S FAULT, not the dog's. Yet it is the dog who will be put down because of his owner doesn't want to be sued.

    If a dog attacks once he WILL attack again! better to put down a dog than a kid!!!! what if the cat had not stepped in?????

    If you're uneducated in this mater do not make comments about a dog attacking once and know it will happen again. That is the most untrue thing ever, dogs like this can be taken under and taught better ways. It will always be be only the owners fault if you can't handle and train a dog then you certainly shouldn't be able to own one. There have been NUMEROUS dogs that have had correctional treatment successfully. Putting this dog down should be a crime.

    Great story I think Fancy Feasts or Purina should give her a years worth of food!

    Re: teeter totter – What she did is truly extraordinary. A full body slam at warp speed, with chasing dog away follow through, and then she came back to check on the boy in a big hurry. What a cat.
