Sheekilah Jones was waiting for her bus to work last week when she heard a strange sound reverberating through the peaceful, early morning streets, the source of which was not immediately apparent.
Jones told The Dodo, “I heard knocking.” “However, no one was in the vicinity.”
Jones’ gaze rested on this while scanning her surroundings:
Jones noticed a black cat standing atop a handrail near the entrance on a stoop a short distance distant. And it wasn’t long before it became evident why.
As Jones watched, the cat reached up and pawed at the door’s knocker, suggesting that he’d want to be allowed inside in the same way a person would.
Jones added, “I honestly couldn’t believe what I was witnessing.”
She recorded the strange encounter on tape, fearing that no one else would believe it:
The kitten had apparently discovered a more efficient manner of summoning his owner than, say, the modest pitter-patter of his paws against the door. Unfortunately, Jones had to leave before the cat’s request could be fulfilled.
“I was inclined to go knock a little harder for him,” she explained, “but then my bus came.” “So, still in shock, I boarded the bus at that time.”
Jones’ video has already gone viral, garnering millions of views in only a few days, demonstrating that an adorable kitten is always welcome into the internet’s collective heart. Especially if he comes knocking.
