YouTube user moonli927 has a cat video that has garnered over 2.1 million views in just one fortnight. It’s impossible not to see why. In it, her white cat Kido basically plays multiple rounds of the shell game, expertly pawing out the correct shell every single time. Unexpected bonus: the cat narrows his eyes every time he makes a pick at first, but soon develops a game face by the end. Fast learners, these cats.
