“He started coming to our house almost as soon as they moved in,” Leonard Leder, Anatole’s neighbor, told The Dodo. “Ever since, we’d welcome him every day in our home, feed him, let him sleep (only [during] the day) and of course pet him a lot.”
Anatole hangs out with his neighbors every day now, but it took him a little while to develop a routine and figure out the best way to get their attention so they would let him inside.
“At the beginning he showed up at random times, sitting in front of one of our windows,” Leder said. “If we weren’t there to open [it for] him, he would try another window.”
Then a few years ago, Anatole figured out the perfect system. Now, every morning, he waits until he hears the kitchen blinds going up …
… and immediately runs to greet his friends.
Anatole has figured out that the sound of the blinds means his friends are finally awake and ready to start their day, and of course, ready to hang out with him again.
“I still find it super cute every time he does it,” Leder said.
Anatole’s parents know that he hangs out with the neighbors every day and don’t seem to mind in the slightest. As long as he’s safe and having fun they’re happy for him, and Anatole is definitely very happy getting to see his best friends every day.
