This Cat Was Locked Up In Solitary Confinement For Letting The Other Shelter Cats Out

Cats, as we all know, can be a real pain in the neck. They leave “gifts” on the carpet at times, and they utterly demolish our favorite couch at other times. However, there are those mischievous cats who are on an entirely different level. Quilty, a rescue cat currently residing at Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization in Houston, is one of them.

This cat, it turns out, has a unique set of abilities. And they have all given this animal the moniker “jailbreaker”! Quilty seemed to be an unstoppable force, and she wreaked some havoc at the shelter by allowing all of the other cats out of the senior room to roam freely throughout the institution.

Jennifer Hopkins, a spokeswoman from the shelter, spoke with us and revealed some juicy insights about Quilty. The presenter gave a brief overview of how Quilty came to be, well, Quilty.

“Quilty came to us as a kitten with his mother and siblings in 2012.” His litter was named after characters in the book Lolita; his mother was Lolita, and his littermates were Humbert and Charlotte. We use thematic naming for litters (example: the cheese litter, the tex-mex litter, the Harry Potter litter, the serial killer litter, etc.) and his litter was named after characters in the book Lolita; his mom was Lolita, and his littermates were Humbert and Charlotte. Quilty had been born in a closet and had already started his a-holery as a two-day-old noodle with closed eyes and ears. He became separated from the litter at one point, and his rescuer discovered him behind a table in another room. He’s had an “adventurous” spirit from the beginning of time.”

Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization representatives put it this way in a Facebook post: “Quilty will not be contained.” And he has no qualms about it.

Quilty enjoys letting cats out of the elderly center.

Repeatedly.

Several times during the day.

Quilty has subsequently been re-proofed in the kitty room, while he had a break in the lobby. While he was confined to the lobby, his housemates missed him. They were having a good time around the shelter at night. The staff, on the other hand, did not miss the morning cat wrangling, so we’ll have to agree to disagree.”

Quilty’s trouble-making abilities and how he returned to the group were further explained by Jennifer:

“Quilty was adopted as a kitten from us (in 2012). He immediately learned how to unlock the door to bring his dog brother, Winston, inside from the backyard after being adopted and moved into a home.

Unfortunately, his mother had to relocate a few months ago and was unable to take Quilty with her. Because his owner was moving and couldn’t take him with him, we got him back as an owner surrender (when someone comes to us and asks for help rehoming their animal). We take the animals back into our program if the adopter needs to return them for whatever reason (of course, we attempt to help them work through any challenges they are experiencing first, whether that includes assistance with resources such as food/vetting or behavior counseling). We worked with Quilty’s owner to see if there was any way they could take him with them, but nothing worked out, so he returned to the Friends For Life program to find a new permanent home. We have a lifelong commitment to the animals in the Friends For Life program, so if any of them need to be returned for whatever reason, we welcome them back with open arms.”

The woman also stated that, while her group is tolerant, they would never condone somebody publicly criticizing Quilty’s owner for rehoming her.

“Quilty adjusted quickly to the cat room at the shelter, and APPEARLY learned how to open the door (which was most likely child’s play, given he had round doorknobs at his previous residence and we have lever handles). We’d come in the morning and find that all of the cats from that room had vanished… cat wrangling ensued. Quilty was the perpetrator, but we didn’t realize it until we saw it on the room’s cameras. (Unfortunately, the initial clip has since been recorded over, but we had multiple opportunities to watch/film him doing it with us present.) We are incredibly imaginative (and budget-conscious) at the shelter, so we used a broom and some twine to lock the door shut. We have since added a Quilty-proof lock to the handle, making it more welcoming to visitors. After that, he would sneak out at least five times a day, hiding behind volunteers or visitors that entered the room. He is simply uncontainable. Did we mention he has no shame?”

They went on to say more about Quilty’s troublemaking abilities:

“Apparently, this isn’t a new talent he picked while at the shelter; at his previous residence, he used to let his dog sibling in the house.”

People were then urged to adopt him as soon as possible, according to the organization:

“If you are seeking for a smart cat who gets along with dogs but not with closed doors, we have someone you should meet.

Please. Meet him if you want. And bring him back to your house. Please…”

The people driving the adoption campaign even created a short description of the kitty in the hopes of winning some hearts. Despite the fact that it was written before he turned to a life of crime.

“Can you tell me what the coolest cat name you’ve ever heard? Quilty, I believe, is the winner! Almost as much as a CLEAN litter box and lounging on the balcony, I adore my name. As much as I enjoy getting pets, I despise getting belly massages.

[adace-ad id=”5696″]

I’m a clever, enthusiastic, and laid-back guy, although I may be shy at times. I don’t mind if you have a friendly dog at home, but I’m not sure about young children. I have never played with them before, so I’m not sure how I feel about them. I am aware that I enjoy opening closed doors. When I see one, it makes me strive extra hard to open it, and I typically succeed.

Keep the name Quilty in mind and arrange a Meet and Greet with me. I’m ready for a sleepover at your place, and I’m eager to stay forever.”

With over 18k likes and 14k shares on their original Facebook post, the organization decided to promote Quilty on other social media platforms, creating not just a hashtag #freequilty but also an entire Instagram page dedicated to the ‘criminal’ cat. Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization representatives took the effort to add 40 posts, resulting in Quilty having roughly 18k followers. Hey, why don’t you follow him on Twitter? That is, if you are a fan of terrible dudes!
