The ongoing Tokyo Olympics has caught the attention of everyone around the world and a video of a cat curiously watching one of the sporting events on television shows even animals are not immune to the games.
In a video that is now making rounds on the internet, a tabby cat was caught completely immersed onto the television as one of the gymnastics events was going on at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The fifty-four-second video opens with the feline having its eyes fixed on a gymnast performing on a horizontal bar, in the artistic gymnast event.
As another participant appears on screen, the cat tries to touch the gymnast performing on uneven bars, through the television screen.
Since being shared on Twitter by @humorandanimals, the video has managed to garner over 8 million views. Take a look at some of the reactions here:

Kitty is just trying to help…giving gymnasts a little nudge to help them spin all the way around the bars. And helping as a spotter for balance beam.
What a wonderful kitty. 😹😹

looked like the cat was trying to hold her on the balance beam so she wouldn’t fall
