Sir Whines-A-Lot is one of the top moneymakers of a marketing firm and he always makes sure not a single dollar gets by every he is in action.
Meet the moneymaking office cat!
This adorable rescue cat is making quite an impression on his boss at the workplace, where he also lives, in Tulsa Oklahoma. Every day, this awesome cat provides stress relieving-cuddles to his colleagues and offers a quick entertainment by making cutes poses on top of their keyboard.
However, during the evening when everyone is not around, the office cat Sir Whines-A-Lot becomes a moneymaking machine.
The founder of the company GuRuStu, Stuart McDaniel, notices one morning when he arrives at the office some cash on the floor near the glass door. The area is also where they usually find Sir Whines-A-Lot doing his favorite thing, sunbathing and people-watching.
McDaniel starts to ask the people at the office whose money it is he found on the floor – everyone doesn’t know a thing and the mystery only grew deeper.
“It kept happening, but we didn’t know why. So we decided to test a theory,” McDaniel revealed to The Dodo. “We tried sliding money through the gap in the door, and the cat hopped up and snatched it.”
“Turns out, Sir Whines-A-Lot had been procuring all that cash himself at night while he has the run of the place. And the money just continued adding up.”
“McDaniel surmised that Sir Whines-A-Lot had been luring passersby to the glass while his coworkers weren’t around, prompting them to try to interact with him through the slot. In that scenario, a bill would make for a convenient cat toy.”
“I’m guessing the first people didn’t intend to lose their dollar,” McDaniel said. “They probably put it in to mess with him, and he snatched it. When you hold money there, he’ll bat at it playfully at first, like, ‘Oh, that’s kinda fun.’ But then all of a sudden he’ll bite it and rip it from your hand. He does it so fast, you don’t even realize what’s happened.”

The cat became pretty popular in the area that people began to come and toy with the kitties using their money, which they eventually lose. He became a local attraction and Sir Whines-A-Lot loves all the attention.
“It’s become a game. It costs you a dollar to play, ‘cause the cat’s going to get your money,” McDaniel added.
If you come to play with Sir Whines-A-Lot, you’ve got to pay!!!
“When the money comes through, he pats it. Like, ‘This is my money now,’” McDaniel said. “He’ll even wallow in it — like, rolling in the dough. He’ll literally roll around in it. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
McDaniel decided to use all the money the cat has collected to help homeless cats in the area. He is pretty sure Sir Whines-A-Lot would agree.
“He was homeless once, so it seems fitting,” McDaniel said.
“He’s clearly enjoying the attention,” McDaniel said. “As long as he wants to do it, we’ll keep letting him.”
Sir Whines-A-Lot is now a famous philanthropist.
“He was once just a goofy cat, but now we have a lot more respect for him. He’s doing his part,” McDaniel said. “I’d recommend other businesses have pets at their office — but I’ve never met a cat quite like him.”
We are so proud of Sir Whines-A-Lot
