Charlie the Spidercat

Perhaps inspired by wall-climbing cat videos on youtube, a 7-year-old Scottish ginger named Charlie has found scaling a wall to get into his home is easier than getting someone to let him in.

Like too many cats, no sooner is Charlie let out than he wants back in. Somewhere along the way, he learned he could scale the wall to get back into his apartment.

Owner Hannah Smith said she discovered her Charlie’s trick when she let him out the front door downstairs, only to find that he eerily reappeared indoors moments later.

Miss Smith said: “Charlie meows at the front door to be let out. So we let him out but no sooner is he let out than he wants back in.

“But if no one hears him at the front door, he wanders round to the back of the buildings to find the balcony. He then climbs up to the balcony to get back in.”

She added: “I got him as a wee kitten and out of the litter Charlie was the one that looked most mischievous and I liked that about him. He’s certainly lived up to his reputation.”
