Look what I can do!

Mojo makes life a little more interesting around here in that way that a cat can. And look at those sweet paws with the cute little tufts of hair growing between his toes. So cute, right?

Guess what he can do with those "precious" paws? He can open my bedroom door using the door knob...which he does in the middle of the night. Not a big deal except he's the reason I wanted the door closed, to keep him out.

He jumps up on my bed, presses his nose against my face, kneads the blanket and purrrrrrs; all in an attempt to get me to pet him. Nevermind the fact that I tried to pet him earlier that day and was quickly shown that his majesty did not, in any way, want to be bothered by the likes of me.

But at 3 o'clock in the morning, he's ready for that attention that I was offering earlier. I roll over away from him and face the other way. Well, no matter! He just climbs over me, careful not to miss poking all four paws one at a time into my side. Once he's in front of me, he again makes nose to nose contact, maybe even a lick or two with that rough tongue. I lie perfectly still just to let him know that he's not going to win this game. With his efforts exhausted, he collapses against my body with all his might, snuggles up tightly and falls asleep.

I guess I could lock my door, but I'm afraid I'll wake up and find him picking the lock.

Mojo the Magnificent! I have never heard of a cat that can open doors. How high is the freaking doorknob? Does he jump? SO many questions... Call Letterman - get him on stupid pet tricks. That's crazy!

I should clarify... the doorknob is actually a door lever. He stands up to reach it and then wraps his paw around the lever and pulls down.

So it's not one that he has to turn but still pretty clever to have figured it out. Darn cat!

That is hysterical! We once had a dog who would bounce a ball on our heads in the middle of the night thinking it was time to play!!

This is so funny. I think if you lock the door he would just find another way in. He doesn't give up easily.
