In 2014, a dog attacked a 6-yar old autistic boy as he rode his tricycle on the sidewalk. Suddenly, Tara the cat rushed out of nowhere and frightened the dog away, thereby protecting and saving the boy from being hurt further by the dog.
Now Tara is going to be honored in a parade float in the Rose Bowl parade. If you happen to be watching the Rose Bowl parade on January 1, look for Tara on a float. If there are any dogs around that may threaten to attack any little boys, you can be sure Tara will rush out to their defense once more.
