For what seems like decades, dogs have been able to enjoy the pleasure of the great American ballpark, thanks to special games designated for dog owners and their pooches.

Cats have been left behind at home with no Cracker Jacks or fly balls. The Lakewood BlueClaws of New Jersey are working to right this pussycat prejudice.

According to Sport Illustrated, the minor league baseball team will host a Caturday-themed seven innings on Saturday, July 9.

Fans attending this special event are encouraged to bring their kitties to the game, as long as they arrive on a leash or in a case, which should be … interesting.

Along with having real, live feline fans at the game, the BlueClaws, a Class A affiliate of the Phillies, will also be wearing cat-covered jerseys.

For the cat owners who don’t trust their pets around hot dogs and loud noises, there will still be plenty of whisker-related fun according to the team’s website.

“There will be songs, movie clips, promotions, memes, and more fun as well,” the promotional page for the special game reads. “There will be a special guest appearance by Miss Kitty. The specialty drink ‘The Black Cat Cocktail’ will be available in the Coors Light WRAT Trap. There will be a special rendition of Take MEOW Out to the Ballgame, and a special CATurday T-shirt will be available in the Claws Cove. SAVE Rescue Shelter of Toms River will be here as well. They will be collecting donations of products for a cat supply drive and they will have cats here for adoption.”

That’s a lot of cat activity. So grab your cap, your kitty and your allergy medication.
