A black cat wandered onto the ice and crossed directly in front of the home bench inside SAP Center before the San Jose Sharks took on the Nashville Predators in Game 1 of their 2nd round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Most probable the cat was hiding under the seats but nobody knows how she entered the building.
On April 30, the cat, referred to as “Joe PAW-velski,” was safely retrieved by SAP Center’s staff. They transferred “Joe PAW-velski” to Humane Society Silicon Valley where Dowling works.
The ‘world’s luckiest cat’ was checked by veterinarians and they discovered she is actually a female are now calling her ‘Jo PAW-velski.’ Fans interested in adopting Jo can contact the humane society at 901 Ames Ave., Milpitas, or call 408-262-2133, ext. 150.
The cat turned into the team’s good lucky mascot in their 5-2 comeback win over Nashville.
“What sort of a cat is she? She’s the sort of cat that helps hockey teams win games,” Dowling stated.
