Hero dog award goes to Tara the cat

Tara the cat is as much man’s best friend as any dog could ever be.

When the next-door neighbor’s dog viciously attacked her four-year-old owner, she charged to his defense with a ferocity that was absolutely incredible; you had to see it to believe it.

I’ve watched the video over and over, and I still can hardly believe the evidence of my own eyes. I mean, cats are not supposed to attack dogs.

Are they?

Tara body-slammed that pooch so hard, it let go of the little boy and ran straight for home with the cat in hot pursuit.
