Twitter star: 'Anfield Cat' gets nearly 40k followers

The cat which ran across the field during the Liverpool – Spurs game on Monday night has become an internet sensation.

A PARODY ACCOUNT of the cat which ran onto the field during the Liverpool – Spurs game on Monday night has nearly 40,000 followers on Twitter.

The @AnfieldCat account was set up just minutes after the feline ran onto the pitch at Anfield, causing the Premier League game to be halted as the cat made a dash for the Spurs box before departing the field and into the arms of ground stewards.

The owner of the cat has yet to be identified but staff at Anfield have named it Sam according to BBC News.

He bears an uncanny resemblance to Moglet – Liverpool’s unofficial mascot in the 80s who was considered a lucky omen for the most successful club in British football history.
