BAKERSFIELD - The cat famous for saving a 4-year-old boy from a dog attack and another viral video star hit the ice Friday.
Tara, the "Hero Cat," and the Triantafilo family dropped the puck at the Bakersfield Condors game Friday. The game begins at 7 p.m.
Tara the Hero Cat's first pitch fail at the Bakersfield Blaze game Tuesday drew international media.

Queen Victoria the live condor will be at the Friday, Saturday and Sunday games. Vicki is another animal who reached viral video fame.
