Revolutionary and bold, rule breaker, or smart cat? A 6-year-old rescue cat was placed in isolation in an animal shelter because he kept helping other cats escape.
Quilty, the cat has been living at the Friends for Life pet shelter in Houston, Texas for several months, but he has not completely abandoned his old habit of opening doors.

Surveillance camera footage revealed that it was actually Quilty. To launch his breakaways, he jumped and lowered the doorknob to open it to all his friends.
Finally, the employees decided to place Quilty in “solitary confinement” during the night.
The shelter has published photos of Quilty’s incarceration on Facebook, and the cat has captured the hearts of the world.
The post said Quilty opened doors when he lived with a family, so it’s probably an old habit for him.
