Harley's Got Talent

Tresa texted me Tuesday evening to tell me that Harley learned to open the bathroom door! He stands on his hind legs and pulls the handle down with his front paws. I couldn't stop laughing. This is the cat that they thought was so "dumb". I don't think so.

As if that wasn't funny enough.....get this. Harley was being a bad boy at 2:30 a.m. early Wednesday morning. Tresa and Chris finally got tired of him running around the bedroom, so Chris picked Harley up, put him outside the bedroom and closed the door. Harley tried for about 45 minutes to open the bedroom door the way he does the bathroom door, but it's a much newer handle and he just wasn't strong enough.

Tresa was wide awake by this time and decided to get up to go to the bathroom. She opened the bedroom door and Harley was right there. Tresa headed to the bathroom and get this.....Harley ran ahead of her and opened the bathroom door for her!!! As mad as she was that he had her up at 2:30 in the morning....she couldn't help but laugh when the door swung open!

We are going to be at Tresa's on Saturday...I'll try to get a video of Harley's new "trick" if he cooperates.

Everyone knows ginger kitties are the smartest! That is so funny about him opening the bathroom door for her. What a good kitty.

I Love this! Harley's gonna be a big star! Looks and talent!

too funny--my two cats actually work together to open doors, including cupboard doors to get to food!

Harley is a special cat! I've only had one ginger kitty, but I think about him to this day even though it was 30 years ago. When I put a cat in a painting, seems it is usually an orange one!

Would love to see him opening the bathroom door!

Thank God for our unruly, unteachable, aggravating pets! What would we do without 'em?

Maybe he will turn out like that cat on "Meet the Parents" and start using the toilet :)

Harley's and Harlie's are messes that if for sure!!! Whether they are cats or dogs!!

Harley is a very smart young cat, I am sure he will come up with more tricks as he gets older. But to be such a "Gentlemen" and opening doors for ladies, well most men don't even do that. LOL
