ALGIERS, LA (WVUE) -

Tuesday, 10:40 a.m. UPDATE:

Zoey has been recovered. Her owner received the good news Tuesday morning. The cat, affectionately known as 'Who Cat,' became an internet sensation after an image of the feline in the Superdome was tweeted out around the world.

We'll have more on this developing story throughout the day.

-------

The "Who Cat" is missing.

Zoey, the kitty known for getting into the Superdome during the Atlanta Falcons game, has run away, according to her owner, Randy Pumilia.

Zoey has been with Pumilia for more than two-and-half years and helps with anxiety, working as an emotional support animal.

“She'll sense my anxiety level, goes crazy and she'll crawl between my legs and purr and believe it or not, that helps,” Pumilia said.

He was in the middle of moving when he stopped by Uncle Bob's Storage in the 3200 block of General DeGualle Drive to pick up some items.

“She goes everywhere with me and she was wandering around the storage and she just left and she never does that,” Pumilia said.

Zoey is described as an orange, white and black calico with gold eyes. This was posted on Craigslist Sunday.

LARGE CASH AWARD FOR ANY INFORMATION AND/OR THE SAFE RETURN OF ZOEY, The "WhoCat". 
LOST CALICO CAT - ORANGE & BLACK W/ WHITE CHEST AND BACK FEET. GOLD EYES. 
She ran off at Uncle Bob's Storage on General DeGaulle and it is believed someone has her.

Since Thursday, Pumilia has dropped everything, searching for the Who Cat, spending nearly every waking hour in the places he thinks he might find the cat.

“I sleep at the storage where I think I lost her, then I come back over here and I go back and forth between the three locations that I think I lost her,” Pumilia said.

Pumilia said he was supposed to travel to Indianapolis to support the Saints with Zoey and then had a visit on the Ellen Show scheduled, but now he said he’d give up the fame just to have his furry friend back in his arms.

“I'm going to visit my son for his birthday on the 12th of November and he saw Zoey on the news and said, ‘she can come too right?’ and I said, ‘oh yeah!’ Now I have no Zoey,” Pumilia said.

If you see Zoey you can contact us at FOX8NEWS@FOX8LIVE.com or call Pumilia direct at 504-229-8245.

Since the emergence of Zoey the "Who Cat," the Saints are 2-0.
