Should we have a catchier name than 'Hero Cat'?  I of course am talking Tara, about the cat that fought off a stray dog that had attacked a child in the front yard.  We've all seen the video, but here it is again because CAT VIDEO:

Earlier this week, Hero Cat was recognized with the highest honor this country can bestow: throwing out the first pitch at a minor league baseball game:

Hey, that doesn't count!!!  Dude just swung the cat like a baseball bat!  Sure, maybe cats aren't great at throwing, but this is HERO CAT.  I'm sure she'd rise to the occasion!

Seriously, though, you could at least put the cat on the ground and have it bat at the ball on its own.
