Rescue Cat Addicted to McDonald’s Refused to Make the Switch to Kibble

Here’s a furry little guy who’s so much more intense than Morgan Spurlock: An abandoned black and white tomcat named Frankie subsisted exclusively on a diet of patties and McNuggets for twelve to eighteen months in a McDonald’s parking lot, Stuff reports, before he was “rescued” by the SPCA. Frankie was just a kitten when he took up residence behind the rubbish bins. “You would go through the drive-through and ask for a burger for you and an extra patty for Frankie,” says the SPCA interventionist. “He would watch you and trot after the car, wait until you stopped the car and then you would toss him the meat. It was his little routine.” Initially and obviously, the tomcat spurned kibble entirely. He’s now looking at the world with clear eyes, however, searching for a new home, and is even said to be contemplating a macrobiotic diet. [Stuff via WPXI]
