The elusive black cat that stormed the field during the Monday Night Football match up between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys, evading capture by stadium security, is still on the loose, prompting MetLife officials to call on the help of a no-kill shelter.

"Tuesday morning, we set multiple humane traps throughout the stadium and searched long and hard for the #BlackCat to no avail. We are hopeful that together we can find the black cat that we all fell in love with Monday night".

"Even though we want to relocate him, we still support TNR (trap, neuter, release) programs", the nonprofit, volunteer-run rescue organization said in its release.

Macron argued that Europe could do this if "it accelerates the development of European defence". He demanded they double NATO's defence spending goal of 2% of economic output, set in 2014.

In the first half of the Dallas Cowboys-New York Giants game, a black cat was suddenly on the field. Workers at MetLife Stadium and some New Jersey state troopers herded the feline toward the end zone away from the players. Let the cat live its life away from the spotlights and roaring crowds, if it so chooses. It was directed into the corner of the end zone and then sprinted across the end line to a camera platform. So often these days we see viral stars get a taste of fame and then shamelessly chase clout or attempt to monetize their 15 minutes of fame but the MNF cat apparently hasn't been tempted by such desires. It has been the home stadium of both National Football League teams since 2010.

Additionally, MetLife Stadium has set out to correct erroneous media reports suggesting they house upwards of 300 feral cats, noting that there are roughly 30 cats on the Meadowlands grounds and almost all are barn cats from Meadowland Racetrack where a TNR program is in place to keep them fed. However, they did acknowledge that 30 barn cats occasional make their way over to MetLife from the Meadowlands Racetrack next door.
