A cat has been locked in solitary confinement for consistently letting other cats out of their enclosures at his shelter.
Quilty the cat was caught letting other kitties out of the senior room "repeatedly, several times a day" by staff at the Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization shelter.
And apparently, the feline is a serial offender as employees at the Houston shelter discovered that he used to let the dog at his old home into the house.
When it emerged that Quilty had been locked up for letting its fellow four-legged pals run free, an online campaign dubbed #FreeQuilty was launched.
However, the shelter has since revealed that his review with the parole board had failed as he had "released himself" anyway, before being returned to solitary confinement.This is the heartwarming moment a disabled man climbed out of a wheelchair to save a kitten:
"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," the shelter wrote. "We have since Quilty-proofed the cat room, while he took a brief hiatus in the lobby."
It continued: "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."
And due to increased interest in the rule-breaking feline, the shelter continues to post updates in the comments of this Facebook post:
"To reacclimate to the room (and all his roommates), Quilty had to go into the integration kennel in the room (we do this with all the cats when they join the room)... THE DISPLEASURE! He is being a spicy a-hole now because he is, once again, contained," reads one of the more recent updates.
In any case, if you're looking for a cat who will provide you with plenty of laughs, then Quilty might just be the kitty for you!
