The Tampa Bay Rays DJ Kitty first rose to fame in September 2010, when a video of the black and white mixmaster - used to hype fans at games - appeared online and became a viral sensation. Today, DJ Kitty - who recently reemerged as a Dubstep enthusiast - continues to be a fan favorite. While real cats are generally unwelcome at sporting events, a costumed version of the feline mascot is getting ready to make its big stadium debut.
The DJ Kitty Mascot is set to debut at Rays Fan Fest this weekend
Yahoo! Sports reports that the kitty - complete with jersey, backwards cap, and bling - is set to appear at Rays Fan Fest this weekend, and will probably make regular game appearances after that. However, loyalists of Raymond, the Rays marine-inspired mascot, shouldn't fret because there are no plans to replace him with the talented Tuxedo cat.
Like any self respecting feline, DJ Kitty has a burgeoning social media presence, and you can follow his pre and post-game exploits on Twitter @RaysDJKitty.
