Tabby Cat Interrupts Football Match

A tabby cat made an impromptu visit to the Anfield stadium during a football match between Liverpool and Tottenham. No one knows how the feline got onto the field. As she was slinking around the field in front of the goalkeeper, she turned a muted match into an exciting one. After several personnel carefully escorted the kitty off the field to safety, the fame of the Anfield cat just began.

A twitter account (@AnfieldCat) dedicated to the Anfield Cat immediately gained over 22k followers after the incident. The match ended goalless, but it was a memorable game thanks to the Anfield cat.

    I hope we can find out what happened to the poor frightened animal – I wonder if some idiot put him on the field as a joke.

  13. pumbie says:

    Obviously the cat wanted to play; maybe as a center forward. But I agree with the previous comment: some idiot could have pu him on the field. BTW., he is precious.

    Did they find a home for this cat? Or did they let him just wander off to the streets again? Worried.
