ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – (UPDATED 3:56 p.m.) We’re learning more about the cat that was captured in Citygarden this morning, and it’s looking more and more like it is the Rally Cat!
St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach board member Savannah Wrigley tells KMOX the cat is a male, and does not have a chip – she thinks it’s probably a stray.
Wrigley says the cat lured into a trap by sardines has the same distinctive color scheme as the one that ran onto the field at Busch Stadium Wednesday night.
“You can sometimes tell that they’re actually brown in the under-coloring of the tabby, and he’s got that white and really pretty grayish, blackish color in his tabby markings,” she says.
Wrigley says it also has the same white dots on the shoulder and same markings on the paws.
She says, because it bit the groundskeeper who picked it up, they’ll have to keep it quarantined for 10 days.
Our previous reporting is as follows:
St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach announced they caught a kitten overnight in Citygarden that they believe may be the Rally Cat.
The cat, that ran out onto the field during the Cardinals game Wednesday night, has been missing since crew member Lucas Hackmann scooped him from the outfield during the game.
In a statement, the Cardinals said a woman initially claimed the cat was hers and left the stadium with it, but they were separated near Citygarden.
St. Louis Feral Cat Outreach board member Savannah Wrigley says the case is good for the kitten being the real Rally Cat.
“Rally Cat has a very distinctive marking on his shoulder, like a constellation of white dots, and also the fact that he was found where the woman dropped him,” she says.
