What a smart kitty! She really can't see what she's doing - all by feel.

I'd definitely call her Heyes if she was mine!

I think a saw a look of smug satisfaction on that cat's face, too!

Loved it and that they showed the cat doing it two different times so you knew it wasn't a fluke what a cool escape artist

This cat should go on Letterman! Cute video; I liked your title best, BJ!

Hey, my horse did much the same thing! He learned very quickly how to slide open the latch on his stall door so we put a padlock on but didn't think we needed to actually lock it. Ha! It didn't take him long to figure out how to get that open too. Finally we did lock it, but left the key in the lock so as not to loose it. That didn't work either; he figured out how to turn the key, open the padlock, slip it out of the latch, then slide open the latch and escape once again--usually to the nearest hay bale or bag of grain.

I knew I should have named him 'Hannibal'!

What a smart cat!
When I read the title of this thread 'The Hannibal Heyes of Cats' it instantly made me think of T.S Elliot's poem 'Macavity the Mystery Cat' (posted below). Macavity's behaviour always put me in mind of Heyes for some reason. Maybe the cat in the video ought to be called Macavity!


Macavity the Mystery Cat
Macavity's a mystery cat
He's called the Hidden Paw
For he's a master criminal who can defy the law
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard
The Flying Squad's despair
For when they reach the scene of crime Macavity's not there

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity
He's broken every human law
He breaks the law of gravity
His powers of levitation
Would make a fakir stare
And when you reach the scene of crime, Macavity's not there

You may seek him in the basement
You may look up in the air
But I tell you once and once again
Macavity's not there

Macavity's a ginger cat
He's very tall and thin
You would know him if you saw him for his eyes are sunken in
His brow is deeply lined in thought
His head is highly domed
His coat is dusty from neglect
His whiskers are uncombed

He sways his head from side to side
With movements like a snake
And when you think he's half asleep
He's always wide awake

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity
He's a fiend in feline shape
A monster of depravity
You may meet him in a by-street
You may see him in the square
But when a crime's discovered then Macavity's not there

He's outwardly respectable
I know he cheats at cards
And his footprints are not found in any files
Of Scotland Yard's

And when the larder's looted
Or the jewel cases rifled
Or when the milk is missing
Or another Peke's been stifled
Or the greenhouse glass is broken and the trellis past repair
There's the wonder of the thing, Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no one like Macavity
There never was a cat of such deceitfulness and suavity
He always has an alibi and one or two to spare
Whatever time the deed took place, Macavity wasn't there!

And they say that all the cats whose wicked deeds are widely known
(I might mention Mungojerrie)
(I might mention Griddlebone)
Are nothing more than agents for the cat who all the time
Just controls the operations, the Napoleon of crime!

What a great poem! I wasn't familiar with it and I can definitely see why it'd remind you of Heyes. Thanks for posting it!

Perfect poem to go with the Hannibal Heyes of Cats!

Is that a song, too? I recall a Heyes music video with some of those words.

Yes, the song comes from Andrew Lloyd-Webber's West End Musical "Cats" which is based on T.S. Elliot's book of cat poems called "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" which is described as "a collection of "whimsical poems about feline psychology and sociology".
