World’s Worst Cat Put Up For Adoption By Rescue Center

What would you do if you owned the “world’s worst cat”?

Well, one animal shelter believe they have the worst who is “just a jerk”. In a Facebook post that went viral, the shelter puts a hilarious twist on trying to put a cat for adoption.

In most cases, a shelter will try to adopt a cat by naming their good qualities. Because a cat named Perdita is the “world’s worst” there are not many good qualities to speak of. Instead, the North Carolina-based shelter is naming the bad qualities of Perdita in a funny post.

For example, Mitchell County Animal Rescue in Spruce Pine says the feline is “not for the faint of heart”. While staff believed Perdita was sick, they say it turns out she’s “just a jerk”.

Meet Perdita, not for the faint of heart. LIKES: staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful…

Will the World’s Worst Cat Find a Home?

Perdita’s list of social hang ups includes not liking children, kittens, or other animals. Clearly, the shelter believes honesty is the best policy. Sure, the post if funny but the shelter is serious about Perdita’s personality. In fact, the rescue center will waive adoption fees to get rid of her.

“Obviously we don’t know all the cats in the world, so maybe she’s not the worst, but for us, she’s pretty close,” Amber Lowery, executive director of the shelter, told CTV News Channel. “We really just wanted for people to get a laugh and get the information out there and find an appropriate home.”

Perdita has had previous owners and only arrived at the shelter after the previous owner passed away. Lowery says neighbors were unable to look after her.



Despite biting sometimes and earning “the right to be a jerk,” Lowery insists Perdita does like some interaction with people.

“She rubs on the cage and when you go to pet her and give her little scratches, she likes it, but if you open this cage and do that, she’s coming after you,” she said.

Amazingly, the unique way of advertising Perdita has paid off and the center has received over 50 adoption applications.

So, would you ever adopt the world’s worst cat?
