Cat is fine, still has 3 lives left.
Is w/ a marginally responsible, dope smoking, human, likely for another life, or two, unless it turns out to be allergic to weed.

Saw that clip on TV last night. So glad that caught kitty in the flag.

Yes but honestly I think the cat would have been fine if the people had just moved out of the way.

The cat would have very likely been fine. Cats can fall 200 feet without injury.

Just because they can, doesn’t mean they should. grinning smiley

The cat had a dislocated hip from the fall, which was fixed by an emergency vet who happened to be in the crowd. Then the terrified cat ran around biting people, sending a couple of people to ER care.

A lot of people want to adopt this cat but nobody seems to know where he went.

And by ER care, you mean began their rabies regimen, I'm assuming.

Antibiotics for felinosis ("cat scratch fever") which actually comes from bites.

It's a myth that stray cats commonly carry rabies. Cats almost never have rabies. They're predators, but small ones and not very high on the food chain. In the wild they're very aware of aggressive animals and quick to run and hide.

Not a single person took responsibility for the cat? That's hard to believe.

I had cat scratch fever once. It's a big drag, because forever after when people find out they laugh and sing the Ted Nugent song. It's actually not all that funny to have.

I hope somebody did, but last I heard nobody had come forward as taking the cat home with them. It's entirely possible he ran away. That would be a very cat like thing to do in this situation.

If you watch the longer video where it shows people TRYING to "handle" the cat, it's easy to see how no one COULD take responsibility for it.

Stadiums have feral cats. They come out at night and hunt for vermin. I think employees may feed them, as well. Metlife Stadium is reported to have hundreds of them.

Every once in a while one of them makes the mistake of coming out during a game. On the other hand, maybe the ones that do that are seeking a moment of fame because cats on the field always make the weekly sports reels. This guy was just a bit stupider than normal, wandering into the stands.
