While some hustlers might use their winnings for gambling and debauchery, this talented feline is using his earned cash to help those less fortunate.
CASHnip Kitty is the resident kitty of GuRuStu, an advertising company in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The feline was originally adopted by the office staff to hunt mice two years, but because CASHnip was such a lovable mascot, they decided to keep him. After 6 months, 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 turns to dangle notes in front of the cat, who without a second thought grabbed them in his paws. After this discovery, the team 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:
The team erected a sign reading: “CASHnip Kitty is a hustler with a philanthropic heart. He will snatch your money and donate it to the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless. CASHnip Kitty says, ‘Slide a dollar through the slot and great blessings will follow.’”
Since putting up the sign, CASHnip has raised over $100 for the local homeless shelter.
