Jeremy Triantafilo Introduces His Hero Pet Tara (VIDEO)

The heroic cat who saved her young master from a vicious dog attack has given her first interview since the rescue. Sort of.

“She’s a hero,” he adds, before pointing out: “She has whiskers.”

Jeremy was riding his bicycle in Bakersfield, California, when a neighbour’s dog raced up to him and began mauling him.

“But seeing the video and seeing exactly what she did and chased that dog away… seeing her turn to check on Jeremy then returning to him. She is my hero.”

Jeremy’s father Roger added: “She earned her salmon for the year – for life!”
