Cats make their own rules.

Cats are famously stubborn. It’s one of the things that we humans love about them, even if it does frustrate us sometimes. It’s always hilarious to see how a cat will react to a new situation.

One man learned the hard way that cats don’t always respond how you want when he gave his cat a ‘gift.’

While most cats like to meow or scratch when they want to come inside the house, Philo the Cat is very different. In fact, he acts more human than feline.

Philo’s owner, Brian, spent 1.5 hours one afternoon building a new cat door for Philo.

This way he can come in and go out as he pleases without needing Brian there to help him.

When the cat door is finally installed, Brian takes out a camera and starts filming, hoping to capture his kitty’s reaction to the door on camera. “Try out your new door,” Dad says.

Philo wanders up towards the front door, but he’s hesitant about what to do.

He even looks back to the camera and few times to make sure everything is alright. As Dad encourages his cat more and more, Philo nears the door, but just when you think he’s about to enter, Philo does something unexpected.

What he does is hilarious, so I do not want to spoil it. Be sure to check out the video below!

Philo has become famous online for his adorable antics.

Philo was named after a first-century philosopher, and according to his owner, the cat is just as wise as that ancient philosopher.

Philo’s owner started a Facebook page for his cat, where he shares lots of adorable photos of Philo going about his day. Philo spends his time napping on the couch, eating the finest cat food, and harassing his Doberman brother.

Hilariously, the Doberman was more excited about the cat door than Philo was.

Philo also enjoys napping by the Christmas tree in-between giving lectures on famous philosophers like Descartes.

People online love Philo’s antics. The video of the cat door fail went viral, receiving over 16 million views.

People took to the comments to share their love of the video. One commenter wrote:

“On the bright side, local raccoons figured it out right away.”

Another hilariously said:
“Makes sense, the Cat goes into the big door and the human goes into the small door.”
If you’re in need of a good laugh today, this is the video for you.
