Good morning, kitty

My cat learned how to open my bedroom door this morning. I woke up to the sound of the alarm clock and, before I was even on my feet, I heard him jumping outside of my bedroom. It sounded like he was scratching the door as he was jumping up and down.

The next thing I saw was the door handle jiggling (it's a handle, not a round knob). Finally, he got it to budge, pushed the door open, and pranced into the bedroom like a champ. Now that's a smart cat.
