The cat turns and crawls into the basket and once it is safely inside the owner begins pulling the moggy up.

The owner pulls his pet all the way up to his balcony with the cat calmly gets out of his improvised lift.

Basket swinging is a typical form of shopping in Turkey, with homeowners swinging the baskets down to the markets below with a list and money.

The shopkeepers then fill the basket with the goods and take the payment from the money before the shoppers lift the basket back up to their houses.

Neitsens loved the cat video, with ‘Defneamadefne’ writing: “This is very good, like a private lift.” 

And ‘Mausolos1’ added: “I am not exaggerating but this cat is probably smarter than at least 5 million people in our country.” 

While ‘Gizem Kara’ wrote: “Dear cat passengers, please prepare for the flight.”
