Happy Tara Day! Hero cat who saved boy from dog attack gets her own HOLIDAY

Tara the cat has drawn more than 20million views on YouTube, tossed the first pitch at a baseball game, and now California's heroic feline is getting her own holiday.
Last week, the Bakersfield Board of Supervisors proclaimed June 3 Tara the Hero Cat Day to honor Erica and Roger Triantafilo' furry friend for valiantly saving their 4-year-old son from a vicious dog.
On Tuesday, the Traintfilos arrived at the Kern County Board of Supervisors chambers in Bakersfield for the ceremony with Tara in tow on a leash.
Town officials presented the family with a certificate of recognition and threw in some toys for the four-legged hero.
Tara's owners said they were overwhelmed by the community's response to the now-viral video showing the fearless kitty coming to the rescue of their son, Jeremy.
‘To have this recognition is unreal. We're proud to be a part of this community. Kern County is our home and we love it,’ Roger Triantafilo told Bakersfield Now.
Some star-struck Bakersfield supervisors even asked to pose for selfies with the cat of the hour, who did not appear bothered by all the attention.

For the humble whiskered hero, this was only the latest in a series of honors.
On May 20, the tabby threw the first pitch at a Bakersfield Blaze home game at Same Lynn Ballpark.
She was carried onto the pitch by Roger Triantafilo, accompanied by his son, Jeremy, who she saved from the dog attack, and his wife, Erica.

I'm the biggest cat lover around, but this is getting ridiculous now.
