Anyone who thinks cats are lazy hasn’t met Sir Whines-A-Lot, for this feline is still busy…stealing other people’s money!
Sir Whines-A-Lot is a rescue cat who lives at GuRuStu, a Tulsa-based marketing agency, and his antics were rumbled when Stuart McDaniel, the company’s founder, came to work one morning and found some money by the door where Sir Whines-A-Lot normally hangs out. “It happened again and again, so we couldn’t figure out why. So we wanted to put an idea to the test,” Stuart explained to The Dodo. “We tried sliding money through the gap in the door, and the cat hopped up and snatched it.”
Stuart assumed the sly feline had been enticing passers-by to play with him through the fence, with dollar bills serving as improvised cat toys. McDaniel speculated, “I’m guessing the first people didn’t intend to waste their dollar.” “It was presumably put there to annoy him, and he grabbed it. When you have money in your hand, he’ll playfully swat at it at first. like, ‘Oh, that’s kinda fun.’ But then all of a sudden he’ll bite it and rip it from your hand. He does it so fast, you don’t even realize what’s happened.”
When Sir Whines-A-Lot took more and more money, Stuart felt it was only fair to donate the money to charity, especially one that helped the city’s homeless. “He was once homeless, so it seems appropriate,” McDaniel said. They’ve now raised over $100, which they contributed under the alias Sir Whines-A-Lot. CASHnip Kitty. According to his Facebook page, “Cashnip Kitty is a hustler with a philanthropic heart. He will snatch your money and donate it to the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. Cashnip Kitty says, “Slide a dollar through the slot and great blessings will follow”.
