Howard said he'd finally soured on Shuli after just 11 days ago he announced that Shuli was his top 'Artie Chair' candidate: "Over vacation I got annoyed with him."
Shuli called North Shore Animal League last week and used Howard's name before dropping off a kitten at their shelter. Howard was unsure of the details but warned Shuli to be careful: "That would be nice. Yeah. He needs to check in with me before he uses my name."
Shuli later explained that he had rescued a mother cat and kittens but because he already had a dog and two cats, could not keep the strays, so he took them to North Shore because he knew it was a no kill shelter. Shuli added that it was someone at North Shore that had connected him with Howard, he did not use Howard's name up front.
