Cat Plays Jenga. Yes, really


It’s easy to become a bit blasé about the millions of cat videos clogging the internet, but this one’s different, honestly.

Time to put aside that PowerPoint presentation and the rest of that long to-do list as this video of a cat playing Jenga is making us mega-LOL at our desks this morning.

Watching a kitty play Jenga is something we’d never thought we would see, ever, on account of them having no thumbs. But here it is and it makes for pretty incredible viewing.

We could hardly believe our eyes watching this crafty cat accurately easing out one Jenga piece at a time in a tense game with its owner.

Using its paw and mouth, the feline’s able to dislodge multiple blocks from the unstable wooden tower without toppling it over.

But then, the claws come out and he swipes at the top with a paw. He’s clearly a bit of a sore loser and he doesn't have much respect for the rules but, it was so good while it lasted.

Don’t just take our word for it, watch the video below for a heavy dose of giggling and wonderment this rainy Wednesday morning.

And let us know what you think in the comments section below or on Twitter @stylistmagazine. If you have a chess playing champion cat, we want to hear from you as that might, just might, top Jenga-playing cat...
