An orphaned cat from NYC was almost euthanized because nobody can tame him. His name is Oliver Julius and his foster mom, Rose Hilliard, described him as ‘too hot to handle’. She searched high and low for someone who can give this cat a forever home, but whenever a possible family comes to meet OJ he would hiss and ends up scaring them away.
“I was very disheartened after adoption attempts went so badly,” she told Pix 11. After failing to find OJ a home through the traditional route, Rose decided to try something different. She went out and started putting up flyers around her neighborhood advertising Oliver as “Gangsta Cat”
The poster reads:
“I may not look like it, but I am one badass mother f*****. I only accept petting when I feel like it.
If you try to pet me when I’m not in the mood, I will hiss at a bitch. Because f*** you, I do what I want.
You would too if you had it rough like me. My punk-ass family abandoned me outside in subzero degree weather in a cat carrier, and then the animal shelter that was supposed to find me a home sent me to death row.
I was saved by a nice cat rescue and am now kicking it at my foster home.
But no one will adopt me because whenever I meet new people and they pet me, I hiss at them. I’m also old as hell (9 years).
In cat years that’s way too old for any of this b*******, so you’ll just have to understand why I’m a cranky old man.
Not cuddly enough for you? Then move along, son.
There must be someone in all of New York who will appreciate a badass (and okay,sometimes sweet) cat who does not give a f***.
Call my foster mom Rose… if you want me to grace your couch with my little orange nut****. Peace.”
And the poster seems to be working!
