MISSING: MISSING: Cardinals say location of infamous #Rallycat unknown

Posted August 10

— The Cardinals on Thursday confirmed the now-infamous RallyCat is missing, despite earlier reports it was taken to the Humane Society.

The Cardinals said in a news release that Lucas Hackmann, the grounds crew member who secured the stray cat from the outfield, let the cat loose outside Gate 3, near the Stan Musial statue before going to first aid to get treatment.

Team ushers tried to contain the cat, but Korie Harris, a Cardinals fan outside the stadium said it was hers. She left the ballpark but later told KMOV she lost the cat in City Garden.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals said they are "hopeful someone will find the cat and contact us so we can properly care for it. Our grounds crew is working on developing a stray animal protocol to ensure the safety of both crew and animal should this happen again. In the meantime, the Cardinals are looking to scratch and claw their way back to the top of the division standings."
