Sneaky shelter cat keeps freeing his comrades


HOUSTON — Move over Smudge, a rescue cat named Quilty has become the newest darling of the internet.

It’s all thanks to some mutinous attempts to free himself and other cats at Friends for Life Animal Shelter in Houston.

When rescue workers reviewed security footage to find out how the cats kept getting out, video showed Quilty was the culprit.

Images showing an angry looking Quilty serving time for his crimes have caught fire online.

Now, as you can imagine, people are clamoring to adopt the cat.
