The table formerly known as the printer stand is now in my office, used mostly as a landing zone for my briefcase. However, to the cats important thing is that it is immediately next to my closet door, which unlike several of the doors upstairs actually latches. This makes the closet, among other things, a good place to store my local stash of kitty treats.
When I was up again early in the middle of week, Billy hopped on the table and started working the knob. This is not the first time he's tried a doorknob, as he tends to rattle the bathroom knob from the floor a lot. However, the table gives him much better purchase for this door.
No, he didn't get the door open.
Yes, I think he'll try again.
Please don't loan him any tools no matter how much he asks.
