'She's Just A Jerk': The 'World's Worst Cat' Is Up For Adoption

If you're looking for a new pet and are up for a challenge, you might be in luck.

An animal shelter in the US has been inundated with offers from individuals wanting to adopt Perdita, better known as: "the world's worst cat".

The Mitchell County Animal Rescue based in the US state of North Carolina posted an adoption ad on Facebook which introduced the world to the grumpy feline.

“We thought she was sick,” the ad said. “Turns out she’s just a jerk.”

Apparently her 'likes' include staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again and being queen of her domicile. Her 'dislikes' include the colour pink, Disney movies and definitely hugs.

According to the ad "she's single and ready to be socially awkward with a socially awkward human who understands personal space."

It is no surprise why they're offering her up for free adoption, but what is a surprise is the number of responses the shelter has received in regard to the advert.

The ad has so far gathered 2,700 comments and been shared 4,800 times,

The cheeky tactic has helped get stubborn pets adopted in the past, Mitchell County Animal Rescue Executive Director Amber Lowery told CNN. So they hoped it would work for Perdita too.

If you're a socially award human, perhaps Perdita is for you.
