Had enough of the hero cat yet? No? Good. Because there’s more. The cat who rescued a toddler by fighting off a dog will now be honoured with the first pitch at a baseball match.

Tara became an online sensation after CCTV footage showed her scaring away a neighbour’s dog when it attacked her owner’s four-year-old son, Jeremy Triantafilo.

This show of bravery led a minor league baseball team, The Bakersfield Blaze, to invite the cat to throw out the first ball at a forthcoming game – despite that fact that Tara, as far as we know, has not evolved opposable thumbs.

‘Tara the Hero Cat and family will throw out the first pitch on Tuesday, 20 May…,’ the Californian team wrote on their Twitter page.

The video showed the cat chasing away the dog, a Labrador-Chow mix breed, after it bit the child’s leg. The boy later required ten stitches.

It was also revealed the offending eight-month-old dog will be put down.
