Quilty is the cutest little freedom fighter we’ve ever seen. Recently, he got into trouble for freeing his friends from their nice, cozy room at the shelter. We assume that in Quilty’s mind, the gilded cage is still the cage.
The smart cat lives at the Friends For Life shelter in Houston, Texas, and he started opening the doors to the shelter’s older cats
He opened the door several times a day and exasperated employees had no choice but to imprison him.
And Quilty had no choice but to protest profusely.
To thwart Quilty’s efforts to free his friends, Quilty was temporarily removed from the room while staff “Quilty-proved” it.
Then, as part of getting back to the room, Quality needs to spend some time in the built-in cot. Each cat that joins the room must first spend time in the built-in kennel, but Quality is very unhappy with the involuntary isolation.
In fact, so dissatisfied that he decided to run away.
Quilty escaped up to five times, both from the built-in kennel and the cat room itself, but was “unfortunately” caught each time.
He would probably have gotten away with the crime if he hadn’t used his freedom to spy on shelter staff and disrupt their meeting. Quilty may know how to get out, but he’s not good at being outside.
He was always so upset about being sent back to his cell and his grumpy mood was so bad that at one point the staff called him ‘guy A-hole’.
However, the Internet has wholeheartedly supported Quilty and opposed his unjust imprisonment. People have called for the release of the little prisoner and voiced support for his radical ways.
The support has been overwhelming. A little-known fact, however, is that Quilty was a repeat offender: while living with his last family, he often opened the door and let the family dogs in. Quilty is obviously irreparable, but let’s be honest, it just makes us love him more.
To everyone’s joy, Quilty’s days in captivity will soon be over. He’s recently been spending time with a lovely family who don’t care about his taste for justice, and that allows him to sleep in bed with them.
We are delighted for our favorite petty criminal and his new family. We’re sure he’ll teach his new sibling dogs a trick or two.
