He Spent The Entire Day Making a Kitty Door. Now Watch The Cats First Attempt To Get Through It.
It’s a well-known fact that cats are hard to please. They can be quite finicky at times, especially when they come across something new. They often have to sniff out and inspect everything that catches their eye and quickly make up their minds in regards to whether they accept or reject whatever it is they’re scoping out…
This picky and choosiness have left countless feline owners frustrated and more than just a little bit exasperated! Lots of cat lovers have gone to extreme lengths in all but vain attempts to please and accommodate their fur babies. In the end it never really matters what you may assume or think they’d enjoy, it ultimately comes down to what kitty decides!
One man lost sight of this feline quirk and his cat named Philo reminded him of it in such a way that only a cute little kitty can! Brian had picked up a cat door at the store in the hopes that his little buddy’s life would be made easier and happier from it. Philo absolutely loves to go outdoors and roam around so one would think the easy access to the outside and having his own door would be something he’d welcome. So his owner purchased a cat flap and set about installing it.
After gathering all his tools, and cutting a hole in his door to properly install it, Brian was finally done a couple of hours later. He was excited about the new pet flap and made sure to grab both his camera and the cat so that he could capture Philo’s reaction upon seeing it for the first time. As Philo makes his way towards the new opening Brian enthusiastically urges him to try it out.
As the cat nears the door he barely even glances at the new flap. You’d think he’d at least check it out and sniff around or paw at it but he doesn’t, it’s like he could care less about the darn thing! Instead, Philo decides to use the actual door rather than his new cat door. The clever kitty stands up and balances on his hind legs then use his front paws to pull down on the handle and crack open the door. Seconds later he’s inside the house, leaving Brian behind wearing what’s most likely a look of disbelief on his face!
It appears that Philo never even needed his own door to begin with because he already knows how to open the actual door all by himself! Brian made the all too common mistake that cat owners are prone to, he failed to properly anticipate whether or not his cat would actually like or use the cat door. The only thing that makes all his hard work and the time and money he spent on the cat flap worth it is that if the door is ever locked, Philo can use his new cat door.
In the end, some cats are simply hard to impress.
