Although Brian Rickett of Cabot, Arkansas spent an hour and half in building a cat door for his pet Philo, his efforts seemed futile.
Apparently, his smart kitty would rather enter his home’s front door the human way, according to a story on Henspark. Unbelievably, Philo was capable of unlocking the door like any human being.
Fortunately, Rickett was able to capture everything on video and uploaded it on YouTube on August 18. Of course, the awesome video took the Internet by storm. As of this writing, the video has been viewed more than 2 million times.
Philo is certainly not the only cat with such special ability. In fact, there are numerous video compilations of cats opening doors posted on YouTube. But the fact that Philo ignored a newly installed cat door makes the situation even more hilarious.
