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 the Underrated Treasures Blogfest, hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh, 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 largely unknown these days, but it's still a fun and easy movie for a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Eirwena

Stray cats abound on the Greek island Crete, most of them loitering around tavernas hoping for a handout. But Eirwena is one of the lucky few. She lives in Russia, but often travels to Petrokefalo in Crete to visit family. She even has her own blog, http://eirwena.blogspot.com, a collection of conversations between Eirwena and her biped Indy, interspersed with lots of pictures. It's truly one of the funniest cat blog's I've come across, so be sure to check it out. Eirwena will soon have her own book as well.
