This Extra-Special Cat Is Raising Money For Charity And Melting Hearts All Over The Internet

Cashnip Kitty is a very special cat. After being adopted at 6 months by Tusla-based company GuRuStu, he is now perfectly at ease in the office, as the company's CEO Stuart McDaniel explains:

He hangs out with everyone at the office and often walks on our keyboards and even sends a few emails before we're ready for them to be sent.

At the end of August 2017, the employees of GuRuStu noticed something rather strange; the appearance of bank notes, near the office door. Stuart continued:

Our buildings are located in one of the entertainment districts in downtown Tulsa and a lot of foot traffic goes by our door.

Intrigued by this strange occurrence, the employees came up with an interesting theory; passersby were amusing themselves with Cashnip Kitty by sliding a note between the two door panels. The cat then scurried over to catch them as they fluttered into the office.

They decided to test the theory by taking it in turns to dangle notes in front of the cat, who without a second thought grabbed them in his paws. After this discovery, the team has decided to use Cashnip Kitty's talents for a good cause by placing a message on the door, telling everyone that all the money earned this way would be donated to a homeless person's charity. Stuart went on:

Being in the downtown area we see a lot of homeless people pass by our window as they walk to the various nonprofit agencies who provide them services, like the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. It weighs heavy on our hearts.

Currently, the resourceful cat has raised $100... And he doesn't plan on stopping any time soon!
