A feisty feline that was hailed as a hero for chasing off a dog attacking her young owner will be featured in a special float at this year's Rose Parade.
Tara the Cat achieved internet fame after video of her heroic deed was uploaded to YouTube by the boy's father. The video, which has been viewed more than 30 million times, shows a Bakersfield, California boy riding his bicycle in his driveway when a neighbor's dog becomes unleashed and begins attacking.
The female tabby cat and the rest of her family will be riding on the Lucy Pet Foundation Paws for Life Float that are honoring heroic animals. The Rose parade airs on Jan. 1st starting at 8 a.m.
