Naughty Shelter Cat placed In Solitary Confinement For 'Repeatedly' Letting Other Cats Out

Life in animal shelters isn't exactly living the dream, but like the comical tales of many animated classics, one cat was apparently determined to do right by his fellow four-legged comrades and it's caused quite the commotion!

The Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization in Houston has had a rough go trying to curb the naughty behavior of a frisky cat named Quilty. In fact, the feisty feline was caught multiple times by staff members releasing other cats from their enclosures. After multiple attempts to curb the undesirable behavior, Quilty found himself sentenced to solitary confinement. Something he appears none too pleased with.

According to staff members, Quilty was busting cats out of the senior room "repeatedly, multiple times per day."

Staff at the shelter in Houston went on to discover Quilty's.. checkered past: He used to let his dog sibling into the house at his old home. In a pleading and hysterical Facebook post, the staff said:

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. We have since Quilty-proofed the cat room, while he took a brief hiatus in the lobby. 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.

Naturally, the post quickly went totally viral and social media users quickly petitioned for Quilty's freedom.

After an "online campaign" was launched to #FreeQuilty, the shelter said that his review with the parole board had failed.

But he 'released himself' anyway, before being returned to solitary confinement. Like a sir.

Alas, when Quilty could no longer escape the cat room, he managed to sneak out via human error and crash an employee meeting.

The shelter hilariously updated their new fan following with a video of the "spicy a-hole" being carried back to his enclosure space.

The Shelter posted another video update shortly after because Quilty escaped again. He's like... an expert: "This mother-effer got out. We perp walked him back to the room. We cannot wait for him to go on his sleepover with his potential adopter. Like... cannot frickin' wait."

Quilty is a spicy boi.

Running ragged dealing with Quilty, his adoption bio reads as a comedy as well: "I do know that I like to open closed doors. When I see one it challenges me, and I work hard to get it open and I’m usually successful."

Although, clearly the Shelter staff have resorted to having an absolute blast with Quilty's Internet fame.

Fret not though, Quilty's highly anticipated sleep-over went amazingly:

"Hi there! Just popping in with another Quilty update! He has really taken over the role of King of the house. He loves to be held like a baby and have his tummy rubbed and looks down on his human minions to do his bidding. He has us all wrapped around his paws for sure! Anytime he is ignored, he just starts meow-ing REALLY loudly and then Bam, he is being loved on and spoiled. His smallest human minion loves to feed him cat treatos, so he definitely has us all doing his bidding and goes to whomever he thinks will give him the most pets or treats. He still sleeps under the covers with me though. All is going well, I will update again tomorrow."

Quilty has achieved peak Internet fame, though and now Quilty merch exists.

You can purchase it here, and it goes to a good cause! An animal shelter with an incredible sense of humor and dedication to happy animals.

In addition to his own hysterical merch, a kitten picture was shared and his own Instagram has been successfully launched to the delight of pretty much everyone. We fully intend to follow @free_quilty and see what mischief and adventure he has in store. We're totally involved now!

What do you think of Quilty's brilliant antics?
