The famous feline will, of course, have help from her family, including 4-year-old Jeremy Triantafilo, who was riding his bike in the family driveway when a neighbor’s dog attacked, clamping down on his leg and ripping him from his bike, prompting Tara to bolt at the dog.

A security camera captured the attack on film and the Youtube video has gone viral reaching over 18 million views.
