Clever cat plays the shell game and wins

cat shell game

(CBS) - It is our ongoing mission here at The Feed to highlight all the wonderful ways that cats can amuse and surprise us. Feel free to read that last sentence as "We love cute cat videos." This particular video is indeed cute, but also enlightening. If you've ever wondered how a cat might do at a game of Three Card Monty, now you know: pretty well!

Two out of three ain't bad, right? To be fair, it's no surprise that cats are skilled at spotting small, hiding things. There may even be some skeptics out there who suspect the owner is doing most of the work (see also: The Clever Hans Effect.) Personally, we know who we're inviting out to our next weekend in Atlantic City.
