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.

Obviously, everyone was super impressed.

Well, almost everyone.

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.

You can find out how to donate to Mayhew or Shelter, by visiting their sites.
