Nov. 4 (UPI) -- A wild black cat ran onto the field at MetLife Stadium during Monday night's matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.

Only a few days removed from Halloween, the stray cat made its way to the field during the second quarter. The feline was on the far side of the field for a play until it was recognized by the teams and officials, causing a two-minute delay.

The cat's slippery moves captured the attention of the entire crowd, as well as players on social media.

A small number of stray cats live at MetLife Stadium, according to Sports Illustrated. The felines, which live in the bleachers, usually come out after the game and people feed them. Security officials believe the stray cat was startled by fan noise.
