Cat from Bakersfield {USA}

Tara the cat was the star attraction at a Bakersfield Blaze home game at Sam Lynn Ballpark in Bakersfield, California. She was allowed to toss the first pitch and was carried onto the field by Roger Triantafilo, whose son she saved from a dog attack earlier that week. She's been quite the local hero ever since.

In conjunction with Underrated Treasures Day, I'd also like to introduce you to Rhubarb: The Millionaire Cat, a comedy from 1951 about a feline inheriting the ownership over a baseball team. Based on the novel by H. Allen Smith, Rhubarb: The Millionaire Cat is mostly unknown these days, but it's still a fun and easy movie for a rainy Sunday afternoon.

  1. I remember that cat. It was totally awesome the way it fought off that dog. My cat likes me, sure, but I'm well aware she'd never go that far for me.

  2. What a great blog? I enjoyed the read very much. I used to have a cat (pictured) who was diabetic so she used to travel quite a bit here in the UK.
    Have a great day,

  7. My mom is a lover of classic movies and I watched a lot of them with her when I was a kid, but I've never heard of Rhubarb. Then again, my mom was not a baseball fan, so maybe she just skipped this one!
