These to art lovers have been trying to enter a Japanese museum for years now. But they always get thrown out! Why wouldn’t they? Neither do they show tickets, nor are they even humans—they are cats!

2 years ago, Hiroshima Onomichi City Museum of Art debuted a show called “Cats—Mitsuaki Iwago Photography Exhibition.” That was when these feline buddies were attracted to the museum. A few days after the exhibition started, a little black cat named Ken Chan tried to enter the museum through the sliding glass doors—but to no avail.

He was spotted by the security guards right when he was about to pass and was then turned away. The exchange was all captured by Twitter user, @mukusuke and posted to social media where the cat immediately attracted millions of Twitter users.

However, the cat was not about to give up. In fact, he turned up again, and yet again, he was sent back.

But he had brought a friend this time. It was a chubby tabby cat named Gosaku or Go-Chan who decided that he wanted to take an excursion too. If not that, they sure have been successful to keep the guards busy!

But, the cats have made their way to the hearts of the shelter staff. Now, when they visit the front door of the museum, they get showered with snuggles and pats before they are sent back home.

The cats have not yet made it inside the museum. However, the museum exploits have designed tote bags related to them.

The museum’s official Twitter account has tons of photos of this feline duo.

“We occasionally tweet the cat snaps around the art museum that the staff shot, sometimes tea tiger and occasionally black cat have been trying to enter from the door two or three times a week,” a museum employee told Yahoo Japan.

While these curious creatures may not be able to enter the museum ever, they have gained a lot of love from all the staffs and that’s something to smile about!
