After the game, a fan insisted on taking the cat home, but it escaped when the fan tried to handle it.
The legend of Rally Cat all started at Wednesday night's Cardinals game when the infamous kitten ran out onto the field during the game. But the woman who claimed the cat outside Busch Stadium quickly lost track of our furry friend, leaving a cute kitty wandering the city streets and many St. Louisians in a state of alarm.
The cat which has been nicknamed "Rally Cat" paused the game when it darted onto the field. And they did. set him right on the street outside home plate- so I told th he was my cat and I would take him home...
We'll see what lies ahead in Rally Cat's future. She says the feline jumped out of her arms into some tall grass somewhere in Citygarden on Market Street. Our grounds crew is working on developing a stray animal protocol to ensure the safety of both crew and animal should this happen again. The cat was eventually found the next day in downtown St. Louis.
The Cardinals are making arrangements to care for the cat long term.
