Tara the Hero Cat is a feline of many talents. Unfortunately, baseball isn’t one of them.
The media hit the minor league baseball field in full force, and cameras rolled as Tara attempted to toss out a pitch as the boy she saved sat close by. Cats don’t exactly throw like A-Rod, so she sort of swatted at a ball on a string three times before her owner, Roger Triantafilo, admitted defeat and tossed out a real ball instead.
Tara blamed her bad toss on humans. Typical cat.
Well, I gave it my best shot, but my humans really got in the way. Everyone knows I’m left pawed.

It seems like a good time for her to take a much-deserved cat nap.
