LOL: Amazing "Jimmy" the cat gives thumbs-up on camera

(CBS) - In school I always learned that one of the major differences between humans and animals is opposable thumbs... this video of a cat giving a thumbs-up clearly shows that "rule of thumb" to be totally wrong.

This short LOL video has an owner instructing her polydactyl cat, Jimmy, to give a thumbs-up to the camera. After much prodding of the obviously indifferent Jimmy, he does in fact do so - WOW!

"And I, for one, welcome our new animal overlords" - I just hope they will give us the courtesy to sit around on the couch all day and play, while they go off to work.
