HOUSTON, Texas (WCYB) -- A Texas rescue cat has been placed in timeout after shelter officials say he kept letting his cat friends out at night to roam the building.
Rescue workers at Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization say they kept coming into the building to find the cats had been freed and were wandering around the building. After reviewing the camera footage, they found out Quilty, one of the shelter cats, would jump up and pull the handle down on the cat room door.
The shelter then put Quilty in "solitary confinement" in the building lobby until they could "Quilty-proof" the cat room.
The shelter says they tried to reintegrate Quilty to the room and his roommates, but he once again freed himself and roamed the shelter -- multiple times. He was put back into solitary confinement.
Quilty has made his way into staff meetings and subsequently escorted back into his room, only to escape custody again. Photos show the outraged-looking feline serving time for his crimes before ultimately escaping custody for one of his escapades.
Quilty is currently sleeping over at a potential adopter's home.
The Friends For Life Animal Rescue and Adoption Organization seems to have taken to the internet fame, posting the hashtags #FreeQuilty, #QuiltyNotGuilty and #NoMoreDoors. T-Shirts are also available featuring the Houdini of a cat.
