This rescue cat is stealing money from strangers and it all goes to the homeless.

Sir Whines-A-Lot has a cheeky name for a cat, but he’s got a mission in life that belies his ironic title.

He’s the resident rescue cat at Gurustu, a marketing firm in Tulsa, Oklahoma. One day founder Stuart McDaniel found money at the door where the cat usually hung out. Days after, Stuart kept coming into work and discovering money near the cat by the door.

“It kept happening, but we didn’t know why. So we decided to test a theory,” Stuart told The Dodo. “We tried sliding money through the gap in the door, and the cat hopped up and snatched it.”

The cat had been encouraging people passing by to play with him, and those people had been using dollars as cat toys. Now Sir-Whines-A-Lot has a particular affection for money.

“They probably put it in to mess with him, and he snatched it. When you hold money there, he’ll bat at it playfully at first, like, ‘Oh, that’s kinda fun.’ But then all of a sudden he’ll bite it and rip it from your hand,” Stuart told the Dodo. “He does it so fast, you don’t even realize what’s happened.”

Stuart decided to donate the cash to a charity benefiting the homeless, which seems appropriate for a once-homeless rescue cat. The firm has raised over $100 for homeless, and hopes to raise more.
