The 'World’s Worst Cat' Has Been Put Up For Adoption On Facebook
Perdita, who suffers from the moggy equivalent of resting bitch face, is cared for by North Carolina's Mitchell County Animal Rescue, who posted the adoption ad this week to much hilarity online.
The grouchy-looking puss - whose "likes" include "staring into your soul", "lurking" and "jump scares" (sounds like me tbh) - is in need of a loving home.
The animal rescue centre's full ad, which at the time of writing has been shared 2,000 times, ran with the headline: "We thought she was sick, turns out she's just a jerk."
The adoption centre added: "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).
"DISLIKES: the color pink, kittens (yuk they are so chipper), dogs, children, the Dixie Chicks, Disney movies, Christmas and last but NOT least...HUGS."
The ad concluded: "She's single and ready to be socially awkward with a socially awkward human who understands personal space. FREE ADOPTION."
Oh, Perdy. You can stare us down any day.
Facebook promptly went wild for the moody-faced mog.
"I'd die for this cat," gushed one super-fan.
A woman with a family of grumpy cats wrote: "I'd drive down there and take this little jerk if I didn't already have 4 other jerks. I love her little devil face."
"I love everything about this! And I love Perdita!!" wrote a third commentator. "You hang in there, pretty girl. Your forever hooman is out there somewhere."
Perdita: ice queen, or just misunderstood? In 2020, it's one of the big questions.
But let's be real, all the biggest icons have resting bitch face. Anna Wintour. Tyra Banks. Nicki Minaj. Grumpy Cat.
By that count, Perdita is basically the Miranda Priestly of the feline world.
We're filling out our adoption form right now.
Whether Perdita stone-cold rejects us is another story.
