The owner of a rescue cat named Sir Whines a Lot noticed that the cat kept bringing home dollar bills and decided to investigate. Sir Whines a Lot is an office cat who lives at the marketing office of GuRuStu, his owner’s workplace in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Stuart McDaniel, the owner of the marketing company and the cat, was surprised to discover that the feline was bringing in a significant amount of money while he was away from the office. While this was beneficial for the business, it was unexpected considering the situation.

Thanks to his father’s observation skills, McDaniel found out about how his cat was collecting money.

“I get a call from my dad saying, ‘Why is there money on the floor at the office? There’s at least $5 on the floor near the glass, where you can slip it through.’ My mom and sister [and I], we figured if people are doing it already, we might as well apply it for something good in the community.”

McDaniels noticed that people were slipping dollar bills through the glass door for the cat. Although McDaniels didn’t know how or why this was happening, it became clear that people were doing it to have fun with Sir Whines a Lot and contribute to the camaraderie.

Soon, the cat was given a new nickname on the company’s Facebook page, which was “Cashnip Kitty.” The marketing company posted a warning note on their glass door that read, “Warning: Cashnip Kitty is a hustler with a philanthropic heart. He will snatch your money!” to alert people about the cat’s behavior.

Fortunately, McDaniels chose to use the money that his cat, Cashnip Kitty, received from people for a good cause. He donated every dollar collected from generous donors to the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. The center urgently required funds to assist the numerous homeless individuals facing the streets of Tulsa.

Sir Whines a Lot makes around $30-40 every weekend, and the marketing company donated two $100 checks to the Tulsa Day Center for the benefit of homeless individuals in Tulsa.

Monica Martin, director of development at the center, said: “I’ve heard of a lot of unique ways people are raising money for us, but this is a first for me, and I absolutely love it. The cat seems to be loving the attention and it has been benefiting and blessing us in the process.”

It’s fortunate that this rescue cat has learned how to help others after being trained to solicit money from people. What are your thoughts on Sir Whines a Lot and his tendency to collect money from individuals?
