The cat hadn’t forgotten the kindness this woman had shown to her. And she found the sweetest way to pay her back!
Boko had been a stray cat for an unspecified number of years in the streets of Texas before Gabby Tropea, a college student, decided to adopt her forever. The two seemed to fit exactly right in each other’s lives.
However, an unfortunate event looked like it was about to tear this inseparable pair apart.
One day, Tropea wanted to walk her sister, Isabelle, to school. The day was just going to be a typical one until Tropea forgot to take her keys with her. At the same time, her sister properly locked the door as she walked out.
It was only when the young pet parent returned home that she realized that she was unable to get in. A devastating concern came over her, but she wasn’t alone.
“I got to the front door and Boko could hear me trying to get in,” Tropea said. “He started crying and scratching at the door.”
Little did Tropea that rescue was in its way.
Or rather, it was already there!
“I went to the back patio and he saw me waiting there,” Tropea said. What the cat did next was to solve the entire problem. Her patio door was usually held closed with the help of a stick. And the cat just seemed to understand what to do.
“He started rubbing his face on the stick and I was encouraging him to mess with it. I was coaching him to lift it up,” Tropea said. “He understood what I was trying to tell him and he started lifting it up!”
Fortunately, she captured the victorious seconds on camera! Just look at the video!

The pair were reunited again.
“He was so proud of himself when I got in and I gave him a couple of treats,” Tropea said. “He was all clingy and snuggly after that for a good while.”
There was no way Boko was letting go of his companion any time soon.
It was only ten minutes, but it just showed how deep their bond was. Imagine being able to understand each other even when you don’t speak the same language! It’s quite sweet that while she was the one who first opened her door for him, he opened the door for her this time!
“We went full circle,” Tropea said.
