Mustard Minute: A film noir of Matt Duffy’s cat Skeeter alone and sad
Tuesday August 2nd, 2016

If you didn’t know anything about new Rays (and former Giants) infielder Matt Duffy before reading this headline and glancing at the picture above, you now know that his cat is HUGE.

His cat is called Skeeter, and like all good cats, Skeeter has an Instagram page. However, as of 5:25 p.m. Tuesday, Skeeter’s owner must not have informed the cat he’d be moving to Tampa Bay, judging by the whole “Go Giants” thing in his bio. 

Look at this glorious, rotund feline.

The Rays were so happy to welcome this cat as part of the trade, which sent Matt Moore to San Francisco in a corresponding move.

But, Duffy squashed those rumors quickly.

This is pretty sad, all things considered. Because, after all, who wants to live with their parents at this age?

But wow, what a great cat.
