Tara the Hero Cat saves boy from dog attack

The attack was sudden. It was horrific. The aftermath is not much easier in a tragedy that required stitches on a four year old boy who was innocently playing in front of his house in Bakersfield, California just before being mauled by a neighbor’s dog.

Much┬árespect for the boy’s pet cat “Tara”, a true hero.

Bravery like this represents just how important it is to recognize how valuable cats are to human beings. If you’ve been living under a rock in 2014 or you’ve been boycotting the media, you may not have seen what happened so watch the video below if this is you:

That mean dog is just no good and it wouldn’t be a surprise if that fool got put down. Word is bond. But you know,┬áthere’s plenty of other stories out there of ferocious dogs beings stopped by concerned cats.

You hear “Cat saves boy from dog attack” and you may wonder… how big was the dog? Well in this case the dog was not exactly a rottweiler or anything, but that doesn’t matter. Tara would stop any dog up to no good. What about pit bulls attacking… What would happen then?

lol cat and infantA recent Huffington Post article shows tons of videos of lol cats attacking defenseless, innocent toddlers. Parents seeking fame and recognition in most cases refuse to intervene, allowing their children to be assaulted.

The curtain of laughter is most often the method used for these neglectful parents to live with their own behavior. The fact that they film the incidents only adds insult to injury.

You should watch the freak video yourself and when a commercial comes on, you should turn down the volume, wait till it passes, and then turn the volume up to see the next video involving cats bullying dogs, cats knocking sh*t over, and more!
