What a little rascal…

From Daily Mirror: A cat named Quilty has been sentenced to solitary confinement for continually letting other cats out of their enclosures at his shelter after multiple warnings failed to curb the problem.

The serial offender was caught by staff at Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization jail-breaking other felines out of the senior room ‘repeatedly, several times a day’.

Quilty also has a chequered past of consistent offending, after staff at the shelter in Houston discovered he used to let his dog sibling into the house at his old home.

After an online campaign was launched to #FreeQuilty, the shelter said that his review with the parole board had failed but he ‘released himself’ anyway, before being returned to solitary.

The shelter said: “Quilty will not be contained. And he has no shame. Quilty loves to let cats out of the senior room. Repeatedly. Several times a day. We have since Quilty-proofed the cat room, while he took a brief hiatus in the lobby.

“His roommates missed him while he was banished to the lobby. They enjoyed their nighttime escapades around the shelter.

“The staff, however, did not miss the morning cat wrangling, so we’ll just have to agree to disagree there.”

The shelter continued to post updates in a brilliant thread as Quilty tried, and failed, to escape through a window and a video showed the ‘spicy a-hole’ being marched back to his holding cell after he got out and crashed a staff meeting.

Quilty is still looking for a home and although he’s unsure about small children his bio reads: “I do know that I like to open closed doors. When I see one it challenges me, and I work hard to get it open and I’m usually successful.”

His fans were confident he would find a forever home soon.

One wrote: “Will Quilty let our dogs out for us at night? And would he let them back in? We might need him in our lives…”

Another replied: “I need Quilty! He will love my house! We have an open door policy (except to the outside) so he can go anywhere he wants!”

Unlike dogs, cats are notoriously resistant to discipline — thus, the expression “like herding cats”. That being said, I hope Quilty will find his forever home soon, especially since he’s of “senior” age.

I love the way his eyes are fixated on the doorknob in the picture.

Discipline a cat? The effrontery! My cat likes to pull leaves off a hanging plant. He’ll get on the back of the sofa, look at the plant, look at me, then look at the plant. I say “I’m watching you” and he looks away as if to say Okay, I’m over that now. Then he abruptly pulls a leaf off the plant and runs away. Time spent trying to discipline cats is time wasted. The best we can do is find a middle ground
