Clever Cat Removes Wooden Bar And Unlocks Door For Owner Stuck Outside

Student Gabby Tropea found herself accidentally locked out of her house by her sister. And when she decided to try going back in using the back sliding door, it turned out to be locked as well. This is where Boco, her cat comes in.

The rear door was locked with a wooden bar, which needed to be removed. Tropea managed to trick Boko into clawing at the bar by tapping on the glass, and eventually, Boko managed to unlock the sliding door.

Boko, a brown tabby, is then going viral on Twitter.

Tropea says she found Boko under a bench at her university one night.

“In retrospect, I probably shouldn’t have picked up a visibly ill stray cat, but I did …” she told¬†Mashable.

Tropea is unclear if she’ll make a page to her cat, saying that she would only make an Instagram for Boko if the demand continues to be high.

“I feel like people would only be interested in for, like, a week, though,” she admitted. “The internet moves fast.”
