Hero cat coming to Sam Lynn Ballpark

Tara, a local cat belonging to the Triantafilo family here in Bakersfield, has drawn national media attention for her heroics in thwarting a dog attack on her preschool-age buddy, Jeremy. Tara and her family will be appearing at the Bakersfield Blaze home game on Tuesday, May 20th , and throwing out a ceremonial first pitch.

283 wins over road dogs.

All food and toys collected will be donated to a local animal charity or shelter, to be selected by Blaze representatives with the help of the Triantafilo family and corporate partners at Petco.

I live in Bakersfield and thankfully don't have cable so I have avoided the cat talk this week.

Ugh.

It's super cool and the video is impressive, but man can they milk a story.

That poor cat, just imagine the stick it gets from other cats.

"Trying to be man's best friend, eh? You're sssick, Tara"
