‘Miami cat’ goes viral on TikTok after soccer followers reserve it from huge fall
Videos of a cat rescued by soccer fans after falling from a height in Miami Hard Rock Stadium are going viral on TikTok and Twitter.
Everyone loves a story about an animal being rescued, and videos of adorable furry friends often go viral on Twitter, TikTok, and beyond.
That was definitely the case for a cat dubbed the “Miami cat” by some, which is going viral thanks to a rather dramatic decline on social media.
The cat can be seen clinging to one of the higher levels of Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium during a college football game in multiple videos posted on social media. It hung desperately on when some of the onlookers upstairs tried to grab it and get it to safety, but no one was able to reach it.
When the cat tried not to fall, soccer fans started holding up a flag underneath in hopes of catching it.

Screams can be heard from all over the stadium as the cat finally lets go, falls from the upper level and falls very far.
Fortunately, the flag plan actually worked as the cat can fall into the arms of those waiting below.
Fans waited with bated breath to see if the cat was okay, until finally a man held the cat in front of the crowd for everyone to see that it was okay, and the stadium burst into cheers.
Well, that’s maybe the craziest thing I’ve seen at a college football game #HardRockCat pic.twitter.com/qfQgma23Xm

At the end of his TikTok, which now has over 700,000 likes, Dylan Marinov zoomed in on a woman holding the cat to confirm to his viewers that the animal was safe.
It’s not really clear whose cat it was or why it was at the stadium, but people are just relieved that it’s okay as videos of the bizarre event keep spreading on social media.
