Someone once told me that my spirit animal was a small dog who thinks it's a big dog. That felt apt, until Missouri police discovered a 200-pound alligator named Catfish who thinks it's a small dog, fears the dark, and devours Wendy's chicken nuggets. That alligator is me. I am Catfish.
On Wednesday, the enormous gator was separated from his caretaker, 35-year-old Sean Casey, when Kansas City officers arrived at his door to evict him from his home, according to KCTV. At the time, they were unaware that they were also evicting three snakes, one rabbit, and Catfish.
"They're taking away my little buddy," Casey told a Fox13 reporter, tearfully. "He's not a ferocious animal. He can't swim, he's scared of the dark, and he smiled a lot. You can just tell that he's smiling."
