Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones was among the many on social media to share a video of a cat showing off its impressive reflexes and fielding skills.
The former Australian cricketer-turned-commentator Jones shared the video and tweeted: “I have seen the worst fielders I can assure you!”
The short video shows a woman striking several golf balls towards the cat with a golf club, and the animal manages to catch each of them with its front paws before putting them down.

Notice as she draws the club back the cat readies to pounce. Seems like a mutually beneficial activity. 👍

Best video I have seen in a long time. Awesome catching. The cat waits for the ball in a crouching position. 👌
