One of the biggest viral sensations to hit the Internet this month was the video of Tara the cat fighting off a dog who attacked a four-year-old child. If you haven’t watched it yourself, you almost certainly know of it. The story has brought out a range of emotions in many who’ve heard it: Whether your response is amusement, wonder, outrage, or sentimentality, no one has been unmoved by it.
Tara the cat now has thousands of fans and a Facebook page dedicated to her fast action. Scrappy, the dog that she fought off, was euthanized this week at the request of his owners, despite many outspoken supporters.
