Now Tara the cat from the video is a celebrity. At the time of this writing, the video has over 22 million page views on You Tube, and the family has done interviews with major news outlets. They have also received press from around the world.
Tara recently threw out the first pitch at a local ball game. Yes, a cat threw the first pitch. How? With some human help, Tara batted the ball toward home plate using her paw and some fishing wire then came into play to give the baseball the appearance of flying through the air to the home plate. It was a huge hit with the fans.
