Well, the cat won’t be making THAT mistake again. It’s never helping humans again.

(Poor cat, IMO, has the long-suffering expression of a cat who’s used to being treated as a dress-up toy… )
And, from the opposite side of the civic-duty roster, there’s the people trying to find Prancer a good home:
Prancer is the very best of what New Jersey has to offer. I love him. Make him our state mascot. https://t.co/UhRRmuLP0z

… Labeled a “neurotic mess” by foster parent Tyfanee Fortuna of Morris County, 2-year-old Prancer found Fortuna about six months ago as he was shelter-bound — “obese, wearing a cashmere sweater, with a bacon egg n cheese stuffed in his crate,” she wrote. Her pitch to find him a new area home gained global interest for its brutal honesty.
Despite the viral spread of Prancer’s story thanks to Fortuna, the 13-pound pup may still struggle to find the ideal owner, said Stephanie Pearl of the Second Chance Pet Adoption League. Comprising Fortuna and other foster owners mostly in Bergen, Morris and Passaic counties, the all-volunteer rescue has heard from only a few potentially serious applicants amid hundreds of inquiries from around the world, Pearl said…
Fortuna said Tuesday that she remains hopeful Prancer’s perfect person will be found, but that his issues do present a challenge not everyone can handle. The 25-year-old said she has always been drawn to animals who need extra attention for medical or behavioral issues, but she did not know what she was getting in Prancer…
“We have found a way to manage him and mitigate some of his behaviors, but some days are definitely still challenging with him,” Fortuna said.
Although Prancer’s road to adoption may take time, Pearl said the spread of Prancer’s story has nonetheless been great publicity for the Second Chance Pet Adoption League and rescue dogs everywhere.
“It’s been great to connect with so many like-minded people that have lived with and want dogs like him and are willing to put in the extra time and effort to get to know the scared, distrustful ones, knowing how rewarding it is to see them blossom once they are comfortable,” Pearl said…
