More Rally Cats at Busch? Cat Rescuers Want to Search

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Could there be more potential Rally Cats hiding in the bowels of Busch Stadium? The group that captured Rally Cat wants to find out.

St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach board member Savannah Wrigley tells KMOX they’re working with the Cardinals and the grounds crew to conduct a trapping operation.

“It would have to be when things are quiet, because a true feral cat, and again this is how we knew Rally Cat wasn’t feral, isn’t going to be out and about during a baseball game,” Wrigley says. “So, when things are really quiet, we’re going to do an investigation.”

Wrigley says they would set up traps like they used to catch Rally Cat. She says any adults they catch would get fixed, but it’s not been determined if they’d be returned to the stadium.

“They’re useful,” she says, “because they keep the rodent population down and rodents are the ones that carry diseases. Kittens would be taken and potentially, if they’re friendly like Rally Cat is, find homes for them, too.”

She says it’s common for stadiums and other public places to have feral cats because they have people who leave food, which attracts prey.

Meanwhile, Wrigley says Rally Cat is doing very well and is “super sweet.” He will remain in quarantine until Saturday.

She says they haven’t finalized adoption plans, but do hope to have him at Rally Cat Day at Busch Stadium on Sept. 10.

  1. Do you believe in the power of symbolism? Here’s what their new disease-infested, ecologically-destructive, invasive-species, community-vermin “mascot” represents for the success of “The Cardinals”.

    “Cat Captures, Tortures, and Kills a Cardinal (bird)”

    Just one of hundreds of thousands each year.

    Prophetic? Perhaps.

    Maybe the few remaining survivors will form a new team and call themselves “The St. Louis Community Vermin”, or more accurate, “The St. Louis Cat-Cràƥs”. Their dugout everywhere now popularly called “The Used Litter-Box”.

  3. The municipalities with the worst rat problems in the USA are also the municipalities with the greatest populations of vermin cats. Surprising? Not at all. Here’s why:

    The myth about cats being good rodent control has been disproved on every island where cats were imported to take care of the imported rodents. Hundreds of years later and there’s nothing but a thriving population of cats and rodents — all the native wildlife on those islands now either extinct or on the brink of extinction — even those native species which are better rodent predators than cats (such as many reptiles and shrews which destroy rodents right in their nests), the cats having destroyed them directly or indirectly.

    The rodents reproduce in burrows and holes out of the reach of cats, where they are happy to reproduce forever to entertain cats the rest of their lives, and make your own lives miserable, on into infinity. On top of that, when cats infect rodents with cat’s Toxoplasma gondii parasite, this hijacks the minds of rodents to make the rodents attracted to where cats urinate.

    1. Cats actually attract disease-carrying rodents to where cats are. The cats then contract these diseases on contact with, or being in proximity to, these rodents. Like “The Black Death”, the plague, that is now being transmitted to humans in N. America directly from cats that have contracted it from rodents. Yes, “The Black Death” (the plague) is alive and well today and being spread by people’s cats this time around. Totally disproving that oft-spewed LIE about having more cats in Europe could have prevented the plague — more cats would have made it far far worse. Many people have already died from cat-transmitted plague in the USA in the last 2-3 decades; all three forms of it transmitted by CATS — septicemic, bubonic, and pneumonic. For a fun read, one of hundreds of cases, Cat-Transmitted Fatal Pneumonic Plague — ncbi . nlm . nih . / Gov / pubmed / 8059908

      “Recommendations to avoid zoonotic transmission: Cats are considered the most important domestic animal involved in plague transmission to humans, and in endemic areas, outdoor cats may transmit the infection to their owners or to persons caring for sick cats (veterinarians and veterinary nurses).”
