Icon02 Woman's ad for her lost 'jerk' cat in North Carolina goes viral

One woman is warning her North Carolina neighbors about her missing cat.

“She’s kind of a jerk,” Mary Irwin, 35, wrote in an ad.

Irwin’s blunt description about her surly feline is now going viral.

(Note: She's been found.)

Roll eyes

I don't think the cat is the jerk in this story.

From the article:

Quote:
Babou also apparently “has strong opinions about things.”
Sounds very much like Babou is a cat!

Quote:
“Babou walked up to our front door in the pouring rain and meowed LOUDLY until we let her inside,”
Doesn't sound like she was found. Sounds like she did the finding.


I'm glad she's home, in any case. -- and I don't think the human is being a jerk; she sounds like she loves the cat, the cat seems to have wanted to come home, and the ad probably drew more attention than a more standard version would have.
