Quilty the cat is locked up!
A 6-year-old rescue cat at a Texas shelter has become an internet sensation after his continuous attempts to free himself and his friends.
A worker at the shelter shared the story:
Shortly after Quilty arrived at the shelter, the cat room door would mysteriously open overnight. When the workers went through their security footage, they realized Quilty was the one opening the door every night.
Quilty was temporarily placed in solitary confinement while workers “Quilty-proofed” the premises.
These images of Quilty serving time for his crimes have gone viral.

Quilty will not be contained. And he has no shame.⠀ ⠀ Quilty loves to let cats out of the senior room.⠀ Repeatedly.⠀ Several times in a day.⠀ ⠀ We think his roommates miss him since he was banished to the lobby until we can Quilty-proof the cat room. They enjoyed their nighttime escapades around the shelter. The staff, however, does not miss the morning cat wrangling, so we’ll just have to agree to disagree there.⠀ ⠀ Apparently this is not a new skill he learned here at the shelter; he used to let his dog sibling in the house at his old home.⠀ ⠀ If someone out there is looking for a clever cat that gets along with dogs but does not get along with closed doors, we have someone they really need to come and meet.⠀ ⠀ Please. Come meet him. And take him home. Please...⠀ ⠀ bit.ly/FFLCatQuilty // @free_quilty .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #adopt #adoptable #clever #smart #smartcat #quilty #sheltercat #shelterlife #sheltercatsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #instacats #shelter #cat #adoptme #adoptdontshop #adoptablecat #houston #htx #77008 #everyanimalmatters
He even has his own instagram, created by fans.
Luckily for Quilty, he wont be at the shelter long. He’s being matched with an adopted family, and will have a forever home soon.
