THEY GAVE HERO CAT THE 'HERO DOG' AWARD FOR BEING SUCH A GOOD CAT

New, comment

Tara, the Internet Hero Cat from Bakersfield, Calif., received the ultimate validation of cats when the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles changed its dang trophy to name her this year's National Hero Dog.

We were so impressed by Tara’s bravery and fast action that the selection committee decided that a cat this spectacular should be the National Hero Dog" said spcaLA President, Madeline Bernstein. "A cat who was abused, forgotten or neglected by her family would not have been as likely to perform selfless, heroic acts to save her companion."

Good dog!
