The black cat that appeared on the field at MetLife Stadium during the New York Giants’ Monday night loss has yet to be found.

On Monday night, during the second quarter of the New York Giantsloss to the Dallas Cowboys, a black cat appeared on the field at MetLife Stadium. Whether the cat contributed to the Giants’ woes thereafter is yet to be determined. However, it did become a viral sensation overnight.

The cat ended up running into one of the tunnels at the stadium, never to be seen again. And as of Wednesday, we still don’t know the whereabouts of the feline. According to the MetLife Stadium Twitter account, the search for the viral black cat is still on.

Obviously, there was a stoppage in play for a few minutes while security tried to escort the cat off the field. If you’re superstitious, then you blame the kitty for New York’s loss. The Giants were up 9-3 prior to it entering the field. After it left, the Cowboys scored 34 points in comparison to just nine more for Big Blue.

The stadium is still working diligently to find the cat.

The loss for the Giants was their seventh of the season. They’re now 2-7 sitting in third place in the NFC East. The only team worse than New York in the division is the Washington Redskins, who are 1-8 thus far on the year.

Big Blue is currently preparing to take on the New York Jets in their Week 10 matchup. That game will take place on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. ET.
