Cat put in 'solitary confinement' as punishment for repeatedly letting other felines out of enclosures
Quilty the cat has been locked up in solitary confinement as he keeps letting other shelter animals out of their spaces.
The six-year-old cat has been found guilty of assisting his other four-legged friends to run free at the Friends for Life Animal Rescue Organization in Houston, Texas. The cat has been placed in solitary confinement until he learns how to behave himself and not cause chaos.
It has also been reported that Quilty is a creature of habit and would previously let out his doggy friend when he lived with his previous owner. The owner started to get very fed up about the dog being let indoors given that the pooch would create a massive mess.
Quilty has his very own Instagram page where his naughty and playful behavior has been documented in great detail. He also has several fans and followers online and is loved by everyone at the animal shelter. The animal shelter took to their Facebook page to share, "Quilty’s review with the parole board was denied, so he released himself of his own recognizance".
"He felt that confinement had nothing more to offer him. He has been returned to solitary. Quilty will not be contained. And he has no shame. His roommates missed him while he was banished to the lobby. They enjoyed their nighttime escapades around the shelter," the page further read.
"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," they continued. Quilty's Instagram page reads that he is a "smart, energetic, and laid back fella who can also be a bit shy".
It also reads, "If you have a friendly dog at home that is OK with me, but I’m not sure about young children. I’ve never played with them before, so I don’t know if I like them. 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".
