Hero feline that saved boy from dog attack will ‘throw first pitch’ at minor league baseball game

Tara the cat (pictured), who saved a four-year-old boy from a vicious dog attack that was caught on camera is to “throw first pitch” at a minor league baseball game next week.

The famous feline will be accompanied by her owner’s son Jeremy at a Bakersfield Blaze home game at Sam Lynn Ballpark on Tuesday in Bakersfield, California.

On Wednesday, she became the nation’s most beloved cat when surveillance footage emerged showing her saving their son Jeremy by pouncing on the neighbour’s dog as it attacked him.
