If the internet has proved anything, it’s that the world loves a grumpy cat and oh boy, this not-so-friendly feline may take the cake.
Perdita, a four-year-old domestic shorthair, was saved by Mitchell County Animal Rescue, in North Carolina on New Year’s Eve. She was abandoned after her original owner died. Now she needs a home.
The shelter is so desperate to find Perdita a family they are giving her away for free and the ad is as blunt as it gets.
In a hilarious post the shelter wrote: “Meet Perdita, not for the faint of heart. LIKES: staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again; the song Cat Scratch Fever, the movie Pet Cemetery (Church is her hero), jump scares (her specialty), lurking in dark corners, being queen of her domicile, fooling shelter staff into thinking she’s sick (vet agrees…she’s just a jerk)
But her dislikes are what truly make her unique. The post goes on to state she is not a fan of; the colour pink, kittens, dogs, children, the Dixie Chicks, Disney movies, Christmas and last but NOT least…HUGS.
They conclude the advertisement by stating: “She’s single and ready to be socially awkward with a socially awkward human who understands personal space. FREE ADOPTION.”
When the shelter first took her in she was sweet as pie… but that soon changed, shelter manager Brittany Taylor told ABC News.
“The next day, she was a grump,” Taylor said.
“We thought something was hurting her, but it turns out she’s just a jerk.”
“She pretends like she wants you to pet her and love on her.
“As soon as you pick her up, she starts growling. She will swat you. She’s just all-out awful.”
But all of this amounts to a pet that will makes you happy, Taylor said.
“She definitely makes you laugh,” she said.
“One minute she wants you, and one minute she’s over it.”
