Perdita: The World’s Worst cat 

She hates the colour pink, despise kittens, dogs, children, Disney movies, Christmas, the Dixie Chicks and what she hates overall is hugs! Let’s say she’s the Grinch in a cat version, whatever makes people joyful, she hates!

"We thought she was sick, turns out she's just a jerk." told Amber Lowery to CNN

A match on social media 

The shelter stayed in at The Mitchell County Animal Rescue in North Carolina. They posted an adoption ad on Facebook last month to introduce Perdita and were very honest about her personality. But it turns out it was a success. With 175 applications, the shelter decided to choose a happy couple from Tennessee.


Meet Perdita, not for the faint of heart. LIKES: staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful...

The couple decided the rename the cat “Noel”, in case the name Perdita was the cause of her anger, you never know?

Let’s hope she’s as miserable in her new home as she is now, that’s why we love her.
