During a Monday Night Football match between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys, one black cat offered the purr-fect entertainment for the crowd in the stadium, as well as those watching at home. The naughty critter decided to go for a touchdown during the second quarter, much to the dismay of the state troopers chasing it and amusement of everyone observing the incident.

According to Madelyn Burke, a broadcaster, the kitty is likely one of the many strays living at the stadium. “They usually come out after the game, people feed them, etc.” she reported. As the stray cats live in the bleachers, this one most likely got frightened by the fan noise and panicked.
As some people expressed concern over the cat’s safety and health after quite a stressful chase, MetLife Stadium representatives were quick to offer reassurances. “Once we locate and safely capture the cat, we will take it to a veterinarian for examination,” they said on the stadium’s Twitter account.
