It was a beautiful day in Bakersfield, California, on May 13. Jeremy Triantafilo, a 4-year-old boy, was riding his little bicycle in his driveway with his mother, Erica, keeping watch close by. He started to get off his bike when the neighbor's dog came over and clamped onto Jeremy's leg. The dog began to violently drag him away as he screamed in terror.
That is where the hero comes into the picture. Tara saw what happened and, like a terror, rushed at the dog. The dog immediately let go and took off. Tara went after the dog to make sure it was gone and then returned to Jeremy. By that time, his mother was there checking on him. It was all caught on video.
Jeremy needed to go to the hospital to get treated and have several stitches put in. Afterward Jeremy said, "Tara is my hero". Who was Tara? It was their family cat! Wow! What a cat! From now on it's Tara, Super Cat. Erica said that it would have been much worse if not for Tara. The dog was removed and is no longer a threat.
