I think yesterday’s Photo Hunt post showed that cats don’t need opposable thumbs to rule the world… or at least we don’t need ’em to open up doors. I found a bunch of videos on YouTube as proof. Here are my favorites — most of them are just mere seconds long!
This cat just casually lets himself into the room:
Here is one cat who not only lets himself out, but lets another cat in!
Admittedly, doors that open inwards are a little more difficult than doors that open outwards, but Gracie here proves it can be done:
Door handles are not even necessary, as Edward proves. Someone at my house is able to open the same type of doors, but I am not at liberty to divulge who.
The most challenging doors for us thumbless ones are those with round handles, but even they can be mastered. This video runs a little longer than the rest, but trust me, Neo gets that door open.
