A man in South Carolina is donating all his cat litter to the charity of his choice.
Troy Lee, 57, lives in a small town in Columbia.
He said he doesn’t have a litter box and had no idea he would be able to donate.
Lee said his cat, a male named Rocky, started taking baths on Sunday, which is the first time in his life he has done so.
Lee said he also noticed the litter box had fallen out of his pocket a few days ago.
Lee’s neighbor, Doreen McPherson, said the neighbor and her husband had noticed the cat taking baths and came to his rescue.
McPhersons cat, Rocky, was also a member of the South Carolina Humane Society, which provides food and shelter to the community.
Lee and McPhersons cat are the first people to donate their cat litter, said McPhesons animal shelter manager, Stephanie Johnson.
She said the first litter they received had three cats, but the organization decided to donate the remaining litter to charity after hearing from other residents.
“We had no choice.
We were literally like, ‘We have to do this,'” McPhereson said.
“We were so proud of them.”
McPherson said her husband is a retired electrician who was a firefighter before becoming a veterinarian.
He has a degree in business administration.
The cat litter boxes at the shelter will be taken to a pet food bank in the community where Rocky lives, Johnson said.
The organization also plans to donate to a local animal shelter and will use donations to purchase new litter boxes.
