Hero Cat

Call the Groomer ...

Cover Photo Shoot in Works

EXCLUSIVE

Hero Cat Cat FancyHero Cat is suddenly the Kate Upton of the pet world -- getting offers to appear on magazine covers and receive some fancy awards ... TMZ has learned.

Hero -- real name Tara -- became an Internet superstar thanks to that awesome video of her rescuing her owner's young boy from a vicious dog attack ... and now Cat Fancy (aka feline Vogue) wants a piece of her.

A rep for Cat Fancy mag tells us they desperately want Tara on an upcoming cover -- and they're even sweetening the offer ... to let her owners write an article to go with the photo spread.

And there's this ... Cat Fanciers' Association says it plans to present Tara with its first-ever Cat Hero Award at its upcoming awards show. Tara's owners haven't respond to either offer yet. 

Hero Cat ... one badass bitch.

Aww! Don't call her "one badass bitch"! Bitches are female dogs.(I don't think you could call a cat anything MORE insulting than "bitch")

Queens are female cats and I kind of like "one badass queen" better.

The cat was AWESOME, the human, not so much. Why did mom or granny run and leave the boy there? Pick up the kid who just had his leg bit, dumbass.
