This Cat Is Better at Jenga Than You Are, and Other Harsh Truths


Well, you made it through another week, and here’s your reward: Your cat is better than you at just about everything. These five videos offer irrefutable proof that your cat’s skills surpass your own when it comes to dancing to techno, having good manners, and riding a bike. Good thing kitty doesn’t have opposable thumbs. You still have that going for you!

Here are five things your cat is better than you at:

1. Your cat is better at Jenga than you

Okay, so maybe she cheats sometimes. But this cat has a knack for picking just the right block in the tower, leaving her human bewildered, more than a little amused, and the loser at this silly game.

2. Your cat is better at dancing than you

Maybe you need to have a few margaritas in you before you’re brave enough to hit the dance floor, but these cats puking to techno prove that you don’t need alcohol to have a good time. You just need a hairball.

3. Your cat is better at getting what she wants than you

So what if the competition is four times as big and at least twice as strong? That doesn’t stop these cats from stealing these dogs’ beds right out from under their slobbery noses. Just goes to show that getting what you want takes persistence — and the uncanny ability to sleep through just about anything.

4. Your cat is better at working out than you

This man bikes the streets of Philadelphia with his adorable cat, MJ, perched on his shoulder. MJ clearly demonstrates that the best way to work out is to get someone else to do the “work” part for you.

Bonus: This Russian cat named Morda has lost 4.5 pounds by riding a bike with his owner, cyclist Vladimir Ilivanov. Apparently the cat is as well known as the country’s top cyclists, and he’s about to become even more famous: The formidable interspecies duo is currently training for a marathon in Siberia.

5. Your cat has better manners than you

These cats gently and politely insist upon attention from their distracted humans, proving that the best way to get what you want is to communicate your needs directly. No room for passive-aggressive sulking or emotional eating here! Now pardon me while I inhale this full sleeve of Oreos.

What does your cat do better than you? Tell us in the comments — and then have a great weekend!
