It’s fitting a wild animal is interacting with the eye-burning monstrosity of a home run sculpture at Marlins Park.

In the top of the sixth inning at the Marlins’ home opener against the Braves, play was paused because a kitty was running around the outfield.

It started out scurrying along the very bottom of the outfield wall near the edge of the warning track.

Once Giancarlo Stanton took notice of the feline, a ballpark attendant went over and tried to pet it, which did not end in disaster but caused the cat to continue running.

With the crowd on the edge of their collective seats, the kitty then put on a show.

It made it’s way to an illuminated advertisement on the outfield wall and quickly scaled it, paused for a moment, and then leaped up into the very colorful and gaudy home run sculpture.

Play resumed at that point but the park announced that use of the home run sculpture, which functions just like the apple at Citi Field, was suspended until the cat was brought to safety.
