Adoption Posters for 'Gangsta Cat' Go Viral

ASTORIA, Queens (PIX11) - You've heard of Grumpy Cat. Now it's time to meet Gangsta Cat.

This little kitty needs a home. But he's got some attitude making it pretty hard to get him placed. When new people meet him and pet him right away, he hisses. "I was very disheartened after adoption attempts went so badly," foster mom Rose Hilliard said.

Oliver's foster owner says he needs a person with patience.

Gangsta Cat, whose real name is Oliver Julius or OJ, was rescued right before he was euthanized at a shelter. Hilliard is fostering him while she tries to get him adopted.

And so she's getting creative. She posted signs up around her neighborhood in Astoria, Queens advertising Oliver as "Gangsta Cat."

She uses language that's so salty, it will make you blush or laugh.

"I may not look like it, but I am one badass mother******. I only accept petting when I feel like it."

Gothamist posted the full text of the flier:

"I may not look like it, but I am one bada** mother f*****. I only accept petting when I feel like it. If you try to pet me when I'm not in the mood, I will hiss at a bitch. Because f*** you, I do what I want.

You would too if you had it rough like me. My punk ass family abandoned me outside in subzero degree weather in a cat carrier, and then the animal shelter that was supposed to find me a home sent me to death row. I was saved by a nice cat rescue and am now kicking it at my foster home. But no one will adopt me because whenever I meet new people and they pet me, I hiss at them. I'm also old as hell (9 years). In cat years that's way too old for any of this bulls***, so you'll just have to understand why I'm a cranky old man.

Not cuddly enough for you? Then move along, son. There must be someone in all of New York who will appreciate a bada** (and okay,sometimes sweet) cat who does not give a f***. Call my foster mom Rose at 646-XXX-XXXX if you want me to grace your couch with my little orange nut****. Peace."

According to Oliver's description page, he "has a loving heart and a gentle soul" despite being mistreated. It goes on to describe Oliver's story. His previous owners abandoned him outside in frigid weather in a cat carrier. Hilliard's colorful language is an attempt to get the cat noticed and find a truly accepting and loving home.

The flier said, "There must be someone in all of New York who will appreciate a baddass (and okay, sometimes sweet) cat who does not give a f**k.
