The cat that wandered onto the pitch during Premier League match between Liverpool and Tottenham has already drawn some 36,000 followers on a Twitter account.

Anfield Cat The grey and white tabby ran onto the field 11 minutes into the first half of the match at Anfield football stadium in Liverpool. It scampered toward Tottenham keeper Brad Friedel's goal and past Kop manager Kenny Dalglish before being scooped up by a steward and carried off the pitch.

Shortly after the cat's one-minute appearance on the pitch, though, a Twitter profile, @AnfieldCat, sprang up, and attracted thousands of followers.

The account, which claims to be the "official twitter of me, the Anfield Cat", so far includes tweets such as, “just had villas boas on the phone asking me to teach fernando torres how to get in the box,” “was scratching at the shankly gates all night last night, back inside now and working on my ball control with @Dirk_18_Kuyt,” “fernando torres reportedly jealous I got a bigger cheer than he has all season,” and “milk is so expensive at football stadiums, it’s an epic swindle.”
