'World's worst cat' up for adoption

‘She’s just a jerk.’

The "world's worst cat" is available for adoption, according to volunteers at the Mitchell County Animal Rescue organization in North Carolina.

The group will even waive adoption fees, it said on Facebook, because Perdita is just such an an asshole cat.

"We thought she was sick. Turns out she's just a jerk."

Her rescue profile says her dislikes include "dogs, children, the Dixie Chicks, Disney movies, Christmas and last but NOT least … HUGS."

The cat enjoys lurking, faking being sick, and "staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again …"

Via the Associated Press:

Shelter Director Amber Lowery says 4-year-old Perdita came to the facility on Christmas Eve, The Charlotte Observer reported. Since then, the shelter has had to warn visitors that Perdita's attempts to draw passersby to her cage are actually a ruse that will not end well.

"I'm looking at her right now, and she's rolling around in her little bed, looking all sweet and cute, but the minute you try to rub her, she slaps you. We thought she was in pain and took her to the vet and he said: 'No, this cat is just a jerk'," Lowery told the newspaper.
