Does Anyone Have A Cat That Can Open A Door? Well My Cat Skiibowski Can

Yes you read the title right! My cat Skiibowski can open doors. I keep both of my cat's in the basement at night so they are not running through the house, scratching the furniture, and walking on all the tables and counters looking for that one crumb. lol.

I try and let them sleep in my room at night and that does not work at all. They want to play around 2am and pat your face or claw you by accident run up and down off the bed or underneath the bed then the dresser. So then I'm dragging my lazy tired butt out of bed to coax them downstairs with treats.

My basement door does not latch all the way when you shut it so we have to put a shoe in front of it. Well he is too smart for his grey hair. I woke up this morning because I heard noises for two hours straight. I thought it was my son Jeremy just being noisy and loud.

Well, "of course not." It was my cat Skiibowski pawing up the tables, counters, and Milky on the buffet and dining room table. Of course I would be lazy for one night and leave the dishes sit in the sink since I knew they were going to be in the basement.

Skiibowski got to lick all the plates too! He is so greedy. He figured out how to open the door and let loose! I also noticed that they both figured out how to get into the coat closet. It is the kind of closet that slides and they both take their paws underneath and pull straight out so they can hide and play in the closet.

It is not that I mind it is the sneakyness I don't... but Oh I forgot, it's in their blood. Well I'm sure Skiibowski loved the plate licking this morning. I made chicken cutlets, rice, and andy-boy's for the chicken cutlet sandwich. For dessert we had vanilla ice cream with strawberries.

Poor Milky got to watch I'm sure since she can't jump on the counter. Milky only knows how to get on the kitchen table, bistro, or dining room table and buffet because she get's on the chair first then jumps up on the table's. I now have to figure out how to make the door latch so they can't get out until I get up. What is funny is that It's not like I keep them in a dungeon. They are in a finished large carpeted basement with food, water, toys everywhere, a cushioned bench along the wall that was built so people could sit and watch people play pool, litter box, futon, etc..

So they are observant and they see we open the door to put them down or up.. cat's are smart animals. Don't ever say your animal's are dumb.... if anyone is, we are.

Just the usual cat flaps for ours. But I have seen videos of cats doing this.All the door knobs in our house are round though. No levers (fits in with the character of the place). I challenge any cat to sort that out. :-)

I have a cat that keeps trying but he never has succeed...yet. He will sit there and study the door knob, then try to jump and hit it just right. He really does watch us open the door so he knows the basic concept to doing it. I love cats, they are all so different and are so much fun.
