Some people get dragged into museums against their will and can’t wait to get out. For two years, these two cats have been desperately trying to get in. Gosaku and Ken-chan, two cats living in the city of Onomichi in Japan, have been trying their best to break into the Onomichi Museum of Art. It all started back in 2016 when the museum hosted an exhibition of cat photography by Mitsuaki Iwago, and the two cats have been lurking around the grounds ever since, trying their best to get inside.
Rather than chasing the cats away, however, the museum’s guards take a more tender approach. Since they’re such regulars on the premises, the cats are treated to head pats, ear scratches, and ultimately, a gentle shooing away.
