One of the life lessons my overprotective mother taught me was that if anyone you don’t know knocks on the door, absolutely do not answer. Evidently, Brooklyn-based editor John Paul Brammer didn’t get that memo, because when two huge dogs and a cat knocked – yes, knocked – on his apartment door this weekend, he not only opened it (albeit, very confused by the encounter) but also engaged in a series of comical events where the animals barged in, locked the doors, and set up shop. The entire thing played out like a slapstick comedy, and lucky for us, he documented every bizarre scenario on Twitter, because otherwise it would be almost too absurd to believe.
The entire run-in is much longer, but our favorite highlights are below. They’re definitely worth a read. One fan commented that the entire thread was a dose of “self-care.” We agree!
