Maybe it's time for the Angels to rebrand the Rally Monkey the Rally Cat.

In the middle of the fourth inning Thursday night, a cute little cat ran across the field at Angel Stadium. It then jumped into the stands and kept running and running and running until a staffer scooped it up. Check it out:

Adorable. And props to the staffer for the clean scoop. As a cat owner, I know how tough it can be to wrangle a cat with a full head of steam. It seems the staffer was able to reel the cat in with minimal bloodshed. (His blood, not the cat's.)

Immediately after the cat ran across the field, the Angels pounced for two runs against Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals to take a 5-3 lead.
