The Cardinals announced Saturday afternoon that Rally Cat, the field-crashing kitten who unknowingly teased Yadier Molina's grand slam against the Kansas City Royals earlier this week, is joining the 2017 Theme Ticket schedule on last minutes' notice. "This is cat-nerd stuff, but Rally Cat is a classic tabby, which is very rare, and last night we found a classic tabby kitten right where Rally Cat was last seen". "#Citygarden is back to normal and as far as we know, cat free!"
Then there's the black cat that apparently "cursed" the 1969 Chicago Cubs by walking in front of their dugout, after which the tide of the game turned dramatically and the Cubs missed the playoffs. We understand from media accounts that the woman meant to take it home and care for it, but lost track of it in City Garden. I'm no expert on either baseball or curses, but given how determined all these folks seem to be to blame the cat, it makes me wonder if perhaps they didn't let the cat psych them out a little too much in the moment? Rally Cat has scratched and clawed his way into the hearts of Cardinals Nation.

All our players got a decent number of minutes of good competition, so overall the squad looks good. "If we cannot strengthen the team in these areas we have players that we can trust".
The kitten, who was initially picked up by a fan during Tuesday night's game, was reportedly later dropped off at City Garden downtown.
"I thought, 'I'm taking this cat home". She says the feline jumped out of her arms into some tall grass somewhere in Citygarden on Market Street.
