No, this is not a headline from The Onion, but a real thing that is actually happening.

The badass cat that saved his owner’s little boy from a dog attack will throw out the first ceremonial pitch at a minor league baseball game in Bakersfield, Calif., KERO Bakersfield reports.

Security camera footage shows Tara attacking a large dog after it bit the boy on the leg and chasing the dog off.

She has since skyrocketed to Internet fame, something a single feline has not achieved since Grumpy Cat.

There are no details regarding exactly how Tara — a mammal that does not possess opposable thumbs or even the height required to throw a baseball over home plate and is also female and therefore probably would throw like a girl if she could actually throw something — will throw out the first pitch at the Bakersfield Blaze game next week.
