A cat intrusion on #NationalPetDay? How purrr-fect. 🐱
— Miami Marlins (@Marlins) April 12, 2017
There is, of course, no shortage of cat videos on the Internet. So we try our best around here to keep the bar high for any feline footage we post. But this one, without a doubt, meets our standard.
Tuesday night at the Miami Marlins game, a cat got loose in the outfield and crawled its way along the bottom part of the outfield wall. Play was halted as Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton and an umpire wandered over and appeared as though they were about to try to pry the cat loose.
But the cat promptly scampered off and pranced through the outfield, captivating the fans in the park. Then, the cat brazenly scaled the outfield fence, and eventually jumped on to a sculpture, before taking a rest. The crowd erupted as the cat made the short jump from the fence to the sculpture.
The adventurous feline appeared to be pretty tired by the end of the journey, which is entirely understandable. Going viral is no easy work.
