Smart Cat Always Wins the Shell Game

the daily dish More on PawNation: Awesome, Cats, Cute, Funny, Talented, The Dish
If this kitty wants to run off to the circus, he already has an act. Meet Kido, the feline shell-game whiz. This snow-white beauty is not tricked by simple human sorcery, easily picking the right shell every time. Even when his owner speeds up the game and adds an extra cup, Kido easily conquers what has fooled so many.



The talented cat didn't always have a life full of naps and little games. According to the Daily Mail U.K., Kido was abandoned by his first two families before being rescued from the kill list by his current Brooklyn owners. It is always great to see an adorable kitty get another chance, especially when it leads to Internet video gold.

Actually, it's just another dumb-ass cat with a sharp sense of smell. He'll smell it every time.

And I always thought kitties weren't paying attention! Good thing they don't have thumbs or they'd take over the world!

I've had numerous cats over the years who were just as good at this game as this kitty. I'd line up about a dozen boots and have the cat's favorite toy in my hand. I'd slip my hand with the toy into every boot, dropping it in one of them. The cat found it every time. I think they must hear it, as this cat hears the bell. Anyway, it is certainly entertaining!

G-D should have made cats the dominant species
