A question has been raised about whether one cat will help another do something one doesn’t know how to do, but the other does.

Yes.

In my household, it’s opening the lower kitchen cabinet doors.  I have several who can do that and several who can but once they get inside can’t get out.

So I’ll hear the doors banging, meaning someone needs to get out. I have seen my more knowledgeable cats go and open the door enough so the other one can push the rest of the way out. ..but only if they’re already buddies.
