Boko, a stray that was saved, found a wonderful way to repay the kindness.
Gabby Tropea, a college student in Texas, took up the lonely tabby cat after discovering him as a stray on her campus last year. The two of them have been inseparable since then.
However, a mistake at home recently jeopardized Boko and Tropea’s ability to stay linked.
Tropea left Boko at home the other day so she could walk her younger sister Isabelle to school. Tropea had no idea that her sister had set the door to lock behind her as she walked out the door without her keys.
Tropea returned and discovered she couldn’t go back inside. She wasn’t the only one who felt apprehensive.
Tropea told The Dodo, “I came to the front door and Boko could hear me trying to come in.” “He started weeping and scratching at the door,” says the narrator.
Tropea had become stranded, but she wouldn’t be stuck outside for long.
Boko soon came to the rescue.
Tropea explained, “I walked to the rear patio and he noticed me waiting there.” To prevent the patio door from being opened, it was locked with a stick. It wasn’t an issue for the astute feline.
“He began pressing his face on the stick, and I encouraged him to do so. I was encouraging him to raise it “Tropea said. “He got it when I told him what I was trying to say, and he started raising it up!”
Here’s a video of that triumphant moment:

Boko and Tropea were reunited for the first time in a long time.
Tropea stated, “When I went in, he was really happy of himself, and I gave him a couple goodies.” “For a long time after that, he was all clingy and cuddling.”
Boko wasn’t going to allow anything separate them.
The whole thing only lasted about 10 minutes, but in that time, Boko confirmed his love for Tropea by practically opening the house she’d been nice enough to welcome him into months before when he’d needed it the most.
Tropea explained, “We came full circle.”
