Not every wildcat fan is lucky enough to cheer on UK in "Cat-lanta" but that does not make them any less dedicated!

For some taking off work for the NCAA tournament is not an option. However, missing their Cats play is also something they cannot afford.

"We never miss a game," said Trent Pelfrey, a die hard UK fan who works at Applebee's in Hazard.

These fans are dedicated to both their jobs and Kentucky's wildcats.

"I mean I've got to do my job, but at the same time, I've got to do my job and watch the game. Another job of mine is watching all of the games!" said Pelfrey.

They watched bits and pieces of the game from the corners of their eyes hoping not to miss game changing plays or lose their jobs.

It is the energetic atmosphere filled with cheers that makes Cats fans feel lucky to be in Kentucky where everyone bleeds blue.

"Everybody is real pumped and whenever we score, everybody yells and I get really excited and go around dancing and cheering!'" said Kasie Wallace, who also works at Applebee's.

Here in the Bluegrass, people work hard to earn money and UK's spot in the Final Four.

UK Wildcats will face the Louisville Cardinals in New Orleans Saturday at 6 p.m.
