#RallyCat returns to Marlins once again, is now safe and sound


The star of Tuesday night’s Miami Marlins home opener has found a home of its own.

According to WSVN, “Rally Cat,” the gray cat that invaded the outfield of Marlins Park on Tuesday night and drew the attention of players, fans, broadcasters, and social media has a new home thanks to a Marlins intern.

Rally Cat, as it was affectionately dubbed on social media, spent the final innings of the Marlins 8-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves atop the Marlins Park Home Run Sculpture before being rescued and then escaping once again.

Somehow, the cat ended up back at the ballpark. Team president David Samson tells WSVN that Rally Cat will remain in the home of the intern as the team continues to search for the cat’s owner. If an owner is not found, Samson says the team will care for its Rally Cat.
