Hiding things from landlords takes so much skill that it could be an Olympic sport. It requires immense creativity and cooperation from everyone involved, which is much harder when the thing you're hiding happens to be your cat.
Luckily, TikToker @austinmarieclaire has a solution. She and her cat, Oscar, devised the most genius plan to ensure he won't be caught when the landlord stops by...or when anyone stops by for that matter! Just wait until you see what he does when the doorbell rings--it's equal parts hilarious and impressive!
This video is a gift that keeps on giving, and we can't get enough! Oscar is so smart and cooperative (especially for a cat), but we know this is due to tons of training, trust, and love from Austin.
As you can imagine, the comments section is absolutely living for Oscar and his kitty hiding skills. Perhaps it's because running away from an unexpected visitor is just that relatable. "I do the same when someone knocks on my door," @vexxelle admitted. Same, friend, same.

We LOLed at @ashanastone's Harry Potter reference that was absolutely on point. "'I'll be in my bedroom making no noise and pretending I don't exist,'" she wrote. Are we the only ones reading that in Daniel Radcliffe's voice?
Anyway...@Kai07219 had the guts to ask what we were all wondering: "HOW DID YOU TRAIN THEM TO DO THAT?!" she wrote. @Iluvhotdads.com answered, "probably by just taking them to that spot every time someone knocks/rings the doorbell. eventually they’ll think doorbell=hide." Gotta love psychology!
Okay, it's time to address the elephant in the room, or, rather, the second cat. Commenter @the.jenny.gerez practically read our minds when she shared, "I WASN'T READY FOR THE SECOND CAT LMAO." Neither were we! This does answer some questions, though, like the very obvious litter box. Austin and the cats made things more clear in a video update, and we are loving part 2 just as much as the original!
