This is what you are supposed to do.

I believe there is no scenario where opening the door would lead to a proper resolution. Neighbor Karen was looking for satisfaction, not fixing the alleged problem and that is Ego-led behavior which never ends well for somebody.
And again, get yourself at least a doorbell camera which not only can provide advanced warning, but evidence in your defense. Knowing what’s outside your perimeter is as important as noy breaking it.

  1. This looks like a good time to open an upstairs window and throw out the “bath water”… preferably just under boiling hot…. People suk. Too many “entitled “ azzhats out there…

    1. second scenario- “karen-open the door!”
      Me- one sec( CRUNCH CRUNCH,racking shotgun)…….. drawing “Henry “ from holster… ect….

      1. Sometimes me thinks Im too subtle.. my point was the racking of a shotgun is one of THE most recognizable sounds in the world… and my doors have windows so karen would plainly see mr 12 ga… or “Henry”my 1911… and no, I wouldn’t open the door…and if you invent a way to keep cats in your own yard, you would be a bazillionaire….

  2. As much as I don’t like neighbors who are lazy, irresponsible pet owners, who let their cats and dogs outside unattended or unsupervised, I certainly would not engage this type of person by opening my front door. However something tells me that, this has been an ongoing problem, which the cat’s owners have dismissed several times, any efforts to bring relief to the problem and instead continued to be irresponsible. Is she a Karen? Perhaps not, but just an exhausted neighbor that has had enough of their ‘bad neighbor’. Time to involve law enforcement. And if it continues after that, leave a toxic treat ‘inside the garage’ to end the problem peacefully. “No I haven’t seen fluffy lately, I thought you were keeping her inside for the past few weeks.”

    1. Even if you’re angry, there’s no reason to act the way she did. Just the repeated pressing of the door bell was enough to clue me in she wanted confrontation, not resolution.

  3. Damn… where does on start.
    OK, taking the video at face value, this is the first time this woman came to the neighbor’s house. And, given how worked up she was, this was not a new issue. It was obviously stewing for quite some time. If someone get’s this angry over a single incident, everyone in a five mile radius would know her.
    Now, a cat is getting into their yard. Good luck keeping a cat penned in anywhere. It is impossible.
    But… wait… her son is extremely allergic to cats. Somehow, I suspect that allergy has more to do with Munchausen by proxy than an actual allergy. However, if an individual is severely allergic to something, it is that individual’s responsibility to avoid it. The entire planet should not be expected to change solely because you have a need. (Sorry precious snowflake, but you are not really all that special.)
    Finally, I would not have opened the door at all. End of story. If this woman insisted on pushing the doorbell repeatedly, and demanding I come to the door, I would have used different wording too. “I will not open the door, I see your actions as aggressive and threatening.” goes a long way. And, if this does blow up more in the future, you have that recorded.

      1. You can see a cat wandering in the video. So obviously they leave their house/windows/garage open. Assuming that actually happens, I would also bet someone in the house gave the cat some food.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
