"The perpetrators will not be detained," Facebook wrote about Animal Rescue and Adoption Animals on Facebook last month, posting pictures of the categorically guilty Quilt meowing from his cat prison. "And he has no shame."
But as it turns out, people love soft cats who refuse to apologize for their wrongdoing. Quilty's frequent updates on the Quilty's latest crime scene have made him an internet celebrity with nearly 30,000 followers on Instagram, and he received a special shout out to Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Wednesday night, its original publication on Facebook for Friends For Life has been shared more than 1
6,000 times. Quilty, meanwhile, has found what he hopes the shelter will be a permanent home for, and appears to have put his life in crime aside for the sake of a peaceful nap with his new owner.
"He fooled them all!", Wrote the shelter
Strangely named after a pornographer who abducts a teenager in Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita, Quilt was born at Friends for Life and adopted at a young age. But the owner walked away and couldn't bring him in, the Houston Chronicle said. A few months before her debut on social media, Quilty returned to the shelter.
He soon began to rebel after hours – though it took some time for employees to understand that he was the driver.
"We will go in in the morning and have to collect all 15 of the cats who had a blast at night," Jennifer Hopkins, a spokeswoman for Friends for Life told CNN.
Like experienced crime scene investigators, such as officers
As Friends For Life explained on Facebook, a furious tabby refines his technique at his former owner's home, where he inexplicably goes to the shelter to find his culprit. he felt compelled to open the door In the shelter, while the rest of the world is asleep, he will stand on his hind legs and repeatedly throw himself in the air, grasping the door handle with his paws and pulling it down. The door will open in the spring and the cat's fury will begin. 19659002] Because Friends For Life uses a free roaming model where cats live in common areas instead of being kept in separate cells, Quilty would not be able to free itself without freeing the other occupants of the old room. Tired of being greeted by cat anarchy first thing in the morning, the staff temporarily banished him to the lobby until they "justified the guilt" in the room.
But the cunning, unrestrained cat was not made, causing fragmentation. When he returned to the old room, Kulit had to spend some time in an "integration kennel" in order to adapt to his environment. He was not pleased.
"THE PERFORMANCE!", The shelter wrote on Facebook. "He is now a spicy hole because it is contained again …"
Sure enough, a few days later, Quilty found a way to get out of the integration kennel. "He's back in privacy," Friends of Life reported. "The Board of Auditors will start its case again tomorrow."
Even after the law broke, Quilt continued with his tricks. Shelter staff caught the hostile cat frantically pawing at a window and huddled around as it aggressively slammed its door. He also somehow managed to overthrow a staff meeting. "The culprit is not a stink fight, but he sure slips as one," the Facebook shelter wrote.
Meanwhile, the #FreeQuilty movement took off. The more crimes a brave cat did, the more his fan base grew. In response to popular demand, shelter staff slapped his face on shirts and stickers and began selling #FreeQuilty black gloves. They also held a mock press conference on Friday, declining to comment on a possible book deal, but confirmed that Quilty launched an exploratory committee on the presidential term in 2020.
Despite his criminal ways, "spicy" personality and a penchant for leading cat uprisings, people began to want to adopt Quilty. On Saturday, the shelter invited supporters to come in and wish him luck as he set off for a week-long trial at his potential new home.
"The success of every family that adopts the Perpetrator," comedian Roy Wood Jr. jokes about The Daily Show. "The parents will go home and look at the house, and they will look like, 'Hey! Who opened the door for the baby? "The culprit will look like, 'Hey, I don't believe kids should be in cages.'"
"In fact," he added, "maybe this cat should be responsible for immigration policy. "
So far it looks like Quilty is turning over a new sheet. On Tuesday, Friends For Life shared an update from its future new owner, who reported that the reformed crime" showed no lament at all "and was" most loving and kind a cat I've ever met! "
But that was not the end of the movement, the shelter promised. Superfans can still embrace one of Quilty's many law-abiding practices. As for those who just "enjoy the chaos," there were also a few adopters running away for adoption.
"# FreeQuilty is for those souls, kittens and others who will not be detained and have no shame," the shelter wrote Friday: "See you. And we love your spice."
