Baron the cat has a rather unusual game that he loves to play every day, in fact, you could set your watch by him. Just don’t expect to get to read any of your post afterwards!

At around 12pm, Baron the cat waits patiently by his front door. It’s exactly the same routine every day.

But he’s not waiting for someone important to come home.

He’s waiting for his special delivery that arrives every day. You may think that it might be a cat toy or some kind of tasty treat that he’s waiting for. But no. Baron is simply waiting for his owners’ post to arrive.

Special delivery

Baron’s favourite game that he looks forward to every day is to wait for the postman to push a letter through the letterbox. He eagerly awaits that familiar sound of the postman on the doorstep and just as the letterbox starts to open, Baron pounces.

With the letters barely through the letterbox, he leaps up and grabs with his mouth whatever he can. Whether it’s a flyer or an important letter, Baron doesn’t care. Sometimes he even gives the post to his owners!

Baron’s owners captured his postal antics on video:
