(Newser) – Even those who prefer dogs over cats will have to give it up for the cat on this one. In video from Bakersfield, California, a 4-year-old boy is getting bitten and dragged by a neighbor's dog when the family cat streaks in out of nowhere and saves the day. "Tara is my hero," says the boy, who has mild autism. He needed a few stitches on his leg but is otherwise fine. Jezebel, meanwhile, has anointed Tara "the world's most awesome cat." One down note is that police say the dog will be quarantined for 10 days and then euthanized, reports 23ABC.
