Cat That Saved a Kid from a Dog Attack Was Named ‘Dog of the Year’

A dog attacked a four-year-old kid in Bakersfield, California last year. You might remember the story, because the kid was rescued by the family cat.

It was the neighbor’s dog, it basically tried to rip the kid’s leg off. That’s when the kid’s cat came charging in out of nowhere, attacked the dog, and saved his life.

She’s a seven-year-old tabby named Tara. Now she’s back in the news, because the SPCA in Los Angeles just gave her their annual “National Hero Dog Award.” Yes, to a cat.

Apparently they don’t have an award for cats, which is probably fair enough. How often do you hear about a cat saving someone’s life? They were so impressed with what Tara did, they decided to break tradition last week. They crossed out the word “dog” on the trophy, and gave it to a cat for the first time in 33 years.

Tara’s owners also get a year’s worth of free cat food from Purina.
