You Can Have A Video Of A Cat Letting His Locked-Out Human Back In, As A Treat

Ever since Gabriella Tropea rescued Boko the cat as a stray on her college campus, they have been pretty much best friends. So when Tropea got locked out of her house in Austin, Texas, Boko had a chance to repay his person for getting him off the streets.

Last February, Tropea walked her little sister Isabelle to school. When Tropea returned home, she realized that Isabelle had accidentally locked the door behind them and that she had left her keys inside. That’s when Boko sprung to action.

“I got to the front door and Boko could hear me trying to get in,” Tropea said. “He started crying and scratching at the door.”

Then, the smart kitty actually moves the wooden bar keeping the back porch sliding door locked, letting his person into the house. While this was happening, Tropea took video footage, which went viral on Twitter.

“He started rubbing his face on the stick and I was encouraging him to mess with it. I was coaching him to lift it up. He understood what I was trying to tell him and he started lifting it up!”

Tropea says she was “not surprised this blew up because Boko is a hero and he deserves this.” We agree!
