Open The Door Right Meow And Let Me In!

Hey! Hey, I’m talking to you, human!

Yes, you!

Open the door right meow!

Didn’t we have this discussion like 26,413 times? We don’t close doors in this house!

Ah! Thank you! Now that’s better, isn’t it? The door is open and everything is just fine!

Hold on, hold on. Let’s not be too hasty. I’m not sure I want to actually go in there. Well, give me a minute! I’m deciding. Lots to think about here.

Okay, I’ve thought about it and I don’t want to go in.

No! Don’t close the door! What are you doing?! Open it! Open the door!

OPEN IT OPEN IT OPEN IT! *scratch scratch scratch scratch*

MEEEEEOOOOWWW! Open the door! You see my little paws reaching desperately under the door?



Open the — yes, thank you! Yes, I’m sure. I’m coming in this time. What do you mean, indecisive?

Okay. So I’m in here now. Watcha doing? Is that the new issue of GQ? Not really much going on in here, is there?

I mean, you’re there, just sitting there, and I’m just supposed to sit here? Yes, I realize this is technically your litter box.

I want to go out. Open the door. No, I’m serious. Let me out. I’m not waiting 10 minutes for you to finish that article, wash your hands, maybe brush your teeth. Nope.

Thanks, amigo. Ah, it’s nice to be back out again.

Actually, not really much going on out here, is there? I mean, you’re in there. I’m out here.

Okay, I wanna come back in. Can you open the door again?

  1. One cat I had didn’t mind being in a room with the door shut. However, if I went into a room alone, and shut the door, that was NOT ACCEPTABLE. The bottoms of nearly every door in my apartment were scratched to ribbons.

    1. It’s amusing how felines universally despise closed doors. I think there’s a territorial aspect to it, but it seems like the thing that offends them most is being physically separated from their people.


  2. Last night I overheard my husband’s conversation with our big boy Stanley. Basically it involved my husband saying, “Really? You just waited until I came in here to decide you needed to use your box?”

    Well, Stan just wanted company. Or admiration and praise for a job well done.

    1. Haha. Stan wanted to show off his impressive skill. I’ve joked with a few cat sitters by telling them they have to stand outside the litterbox while Bud uses it, and clap enthusiastically when he emerges, telling him what a good boy he is. The universal reaction is incredulity.
