Mews and Nips: Cat Delays NFL Game

black-cat-nfl-game

If you’re on social media, you’ve probably seen the footage of a black cat interrupting the New York Giants game vs. the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night.

However, my reaction to watching the footage seems to have been a bit different from the majority of the internet – all I could think of was how terrified this poor cat looked. It turns out that several feral cats live at the stadium and come out after the games to be fed. Who knows what prompted this cat to make an appearance during the game, but I’m guessing he or she is not going to do that again!

Rescued and fostered by Cindy Congdon, the little family quickly thrived under her care. A tiny tortie kitten named Frances started displaying serious baby tortitude almost immediately. “She is definitely the alpha of the litter,” Cindy told Love Meow. “At ten days old, Frances already had the resting disappointed-in-you face.” Visit LoveMeow for more about Frances and the Rosebud family, including adorable photos.Continue Reading
