The Dodo reached out to the Burger King location, but the employee who answered declined to comment on what happened next. However, the ringtail cat was apparently able to make a break for it.
An employee at a neighboring car dealership later saw a ringtail cat wander onto their lot, noting: "We believe the same one that was recently seen inside the local Burger King."
Animal control officer Tim Caudill was soon on the scene to safely round up the wayward ringtail cat.
"I took him out to the west side of town, where there’s a colony of them, and I turned him loose there," Caudill told The Dodo. "He looked just fine. As soon as I opened the door, he took off."
