When the shelter shared a video of Quilty’s escape attempts on its Facebook page with the remark, “Quilty will not be contained and he has no shame,” the animal soon gained notoriety.
Shelter Cat Was Kept To Solitary Because She ‘Repeatedly’ Help Other Animals In Getting Free From Their Cages
Meet Quilty, a six-year-old cat in need of rescue who is now residing at Houston, Texas’ Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization. He unfortunately spent a lot of time in solitary confinement since he was disruptive at the shelter. After the volunteers left for the evening, he let other cats access to the lobby.
At first, Quilty was sent to spend his time alone in the shelter’s lobby after he continually helped other felines escape from the senior room.
He repeated this about 3–5 times a day, and each time he was unfortunately caught by staff at the shelter. He was then put into an integration kennel so he could reacclimate. However, he escaped that kennel too! Finally, the staff put him into a solitary confinement.
And of course, Quilty was not very happy about this because he loved to roam around the shelter along with other cats. The staff said that his roommates missed him so much after he was banished to the lobby. They enjoyed their nighttime escapades around the shelter when Quilty released them to run free.
According to the shelter, this isn’t the first time that Quilty has tried to cause trouble. At his previous home, he learned how to open the door to let his dog brother inside from the backyard. However, the dog made a mess on the floor, so the owner took him back to the shelter.
