A British Shorthair cat tried to escape from its cage before getting caught by its owner and locking itself back in.


The clip below shows the hilarious moment a cat lifted the lock on its cage to open the door. However, it sees its owner watching after opening the door. The cat then slams the cage closed.

The incident took place in its home in Haikou City in Hainan Province of Southeast China.

British Shorthair cats are the pedigreed version of the traditional British domestic cats. They have a distinctively fat body, dense coat, and broad face.


These cats are one of the most ancient cat breeds known. They seemingly started from European domestic cats imported into Britain by the invading Romans in the first century AD.

As listed by the UK's Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF), British Shorthair cats remain the most popular pedigreed breed in its native country.

They are a constant media star because of their good-natured appearance and approximately calm temperament.
