Mutinous cat keeps freeing other felines from Texas shelter


HOUSTON — A rescue cat named Quilty has become the newest darling of the Internet, thanks to some mutinous attempts to free himself and other cats at the Friends for Life animal shelter in Houston.

When rescue workers reviewed security footage to find out how the cats kept getting out, Quilty was the culprit. He would jump up and pull the handle down on the door.

When the shelter workers saw what Quilty was doing each night, they put him in “solitary confinement” in the building’s lobby.

Photos showing an angry-looking Quilty serving time for his crimes have been shared widely online.

Now, as you can imagine, people are clamoring to adopt the cat. But they might be too late. Quilty has already been matched with a potential adoptive family.
