A tiny rescue kitty was lost, but later found by a man whose shoulder became her favorite perching spot.

“This is Riot Prrrl. My girlfriend and I found her abandoned at a backwoods Texas liquor store on Christmas Eve. All her brothers and sisters were adopted except her because she was covered in mange, and infected sores,” said kitty’s hooman dad.

Riot the kitty was a shoulder cat from day one.
