These Two Cats In Japan Have Been Trying To Sneak Into a Museum For Years

What do you do after you fail? Purr your disappointment away and just try harder. Meet Ken Chan and Gosaku: two devoted art lovers that have been trying to get into the Onomichi City Museum of Art for years now, but have been consistently kicked out just as they were entering it. The two have probably taken residence somewhere nearby the museum, because they keep coming back again and again. Eventually, the staff started tweeting photos of the times they drop by, making them internet celebrities.

  1. Hardly seems fairs, what with the bit smiling cat outside. You can see where these fellas would be confused.

  2. They look (and act) just like my Nikki and Goldie. If a door is closed to any room in the house, They are obsessed with getting inside.

  3. Which is which? No one identified the names of the respective cats. The black one looks very similar to one of ours or a neighbor’s — but we’re in Southern California. Also noticed the black one seems to be wearing a collar. Does it have an ID with it? I’d contact the owner.

  4. The guards seem very nice, but I can tell you from personal experience that explanations don’t help. They’ve set their minds on getting in. The only thing left is to harness them and escort them around.

  5. i would agree on letting them in but if it is a museum than there would be expensive, old stuff they cant risk getting damaged…
