When Scrappy the dog viciously attacked a four-year old boy riding a tricycle in his own driveway, Tara the hero cat raced to his rescue. Tara heroically threw herself at Scrappy, scaring him away and even chasing him further before Tara returned back to the boy to make sure he was okay.

Now after a 10-day evaluation period, animal control has euthanized Scrappy the dog. Apparently in the battle between cats and dogs, Tara emerged victorious over Scrappy. Fortunately, the four-year old boy and Tara are doing well these days and likely to remain Internet celebrities for years to come.
