Imagine being unable to open your bedroom room door because of what lurks on the other side. Now, imagine that the thing behind the door is your amazingly skilled cats.

According to the Telegraph, Claire Berlinski is an American-born writer who fled to Paris last year following the Gezi Park protests in Turkey—but was now having trouble escaping her bedroom. Calling upon her writing skills, wit, and Nicorette gum, she took to Twitter to document her ordeal.

Fortunately, there were far worse locations she could have been in.

She eventually contacted her father, who in turn called a locksmith.

Granted, the duration of their efforts didn’t sit well with Berlinski, whose cats took to napping on the other side of the door following their handiwork.

Fortunately, all ended well.

It’s probably a safe assumption that Berlinski will not be so inclined to seek pet-friendly hotels in her future travels. Her cat, meanwhile, has since taken a job designing doors in Sochi, Russia.
