This cat has some wicked snow acrobatics to show off.
Everybody knows that dogs love playing in the snow. Cats, on the other hand, are a mixed bag. Some love it, some hate it, and at least one was willing to crash through a wall of snow to get to its food.
Now a new cat is becoming a viral sensation after its owner posted a video of the cat catching snowballs. Check out the vertical leap on this feline!

The second video is even more impressive, as this very good boy adds a wicked backhand maneuver in midair.

The winter Olympics may be over, but clearly, this cat has a real shot in four years, as long as he keeps his training up.
Katie Brown, who posted the video to Twitter early yesterday morning, also wanted to use her newfound viral fame to help other cats. She asked people to consider donating to an animal charity.
Anyone who shared the content or simply enjoyed it, I'd love if you'd consider donating to one of the following charities:@Shelter this weather means homeless people are even more vulnerable.@themayhew who do amazing work with animals and the community.— Katie Brown (@KatieVEBrown) February 28, 2018
