The cat that invaded the pitch during Liverpool's Premier League game against Tottenham on Monday has become something of an Internet sensation, having attracted more than 30,000 followers since then!

In fact, there are least three fake Twitter accounts, each claiming to be the Premier League's new star, according to a report by the BBC.

The first of these - @AnfieldCat - which claims to be the "official twitter of me, the Anfield Cat" has more than 35,000 followers. Another account - @liverpoolfccat - claims itself to be the "first, the original Kop Cat" and has more than 4,000 followers. The third - @CatAnfield - which claims "I live in Anfield and am fastest than Gareth Bale..." has more than 3,000 followers.

In addition, a YouTube video of the pitch invasion has racked up more than 290,000 views so far.

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC said the cat bore an uncanny resemblance to Moglet, an abandoned cat which became the club's unofficial mascot in the 80s.

Moglet was adopted by the club's ground staff after being left outside the stadium gates and was considered a lucky omen by the players and staff. A spokesman for the club was reported as saying: "With King Kenny's men back at Wembley in the Carling Cup final this year, is this new cat a long-lost relative of Moglet?"
