In addition to being very good bubbins, kitty cats have a pretty sharp sense of hearing.
That neat sense can translate into all kinds of fun parlor games, like the kind that con artists use to bilk tourists out of five dollar bills. Not Gilbert, though. Gilbert is gonna hear that teeny bell and he's gonna follow that teeny bell and he's gonna tap the cup with the teeny bell in it and Gilbert can do this all day.
Pretty neat! It's kinda hypnotic, honestly.
His hearing is pretty sharp, but it's his patience that some redditors felt deserved the high five.
Granted, this game doesn't work with all kitties, and it doesn't necessarily hold up with other family pets.
Of course, even a perfectly innocent video of a cat playing with cups and a bell on the internet is going to inspire some conspiracy theory. It's the internet we're talking about here.
Fraud or no (probably 'no', and also, who cares?), Gilbert is still an excellent bubbins.
