If you watch only one cat video today, make sure it’s this one. That might sound like an exaggeration, I know, but when you see what this little guy can do, you’ll thank me.

When I stumbled upon this video online earlier today, its owner’s description of “a moment that will go down in history” struck me as rather hyperbolic. (I mean, how often are we told by some website or other that we ‘won’t believe’ what happens next, only to find the outcome entirely plausible?) Even so, I have a big soft spot for cats, so I clicked the “Play” all the same.

After watching the video for 10, 15, 20 seconds, though, I was starting to wonder if I was missing something. It’s a cat playing with a toy, I thought to myself, what’s so unusual about that?

Then it happened.
