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

“We thought if we highlighted [her personality] in a humorous way, the person with a personality to match hers can adopt,” Lowery said.
According to the post, the feisty feline likes “staring into your soul until you feel as if you may never be cheerful again.”
She dislikes “the color pink, kittens (yuk they are so chipper), dogs, children, the Dixie Chicks, Disney movies, Christmas and last but NOT least… HUGS.”
Lowery says they’ve reviewed about 10 or 11 of the many applicants they’ve received so far.MORE NEWS: Pittsburgh Weather: Tornado Warnings Issued For Multiple Local Counties, Including Allegheny And Butler Counties
