This cat is capable of ridiculous feats for the same reason that Russian ballerinas and figure skaters are
Russian trainers are notorious for being f**kin’ psychos. Take the craziest example of an American high school football coach you can imagine, then multiply it by seven and have him chug some vodka, and now you have a Russian trainer.
If you watch an American “funny” cat video, the cat barely does anything impressive or funny because it’s a cat, and cats don’t do tricks. This cat probably was probably forced to take LSD and watch video of dogs being obedient twelve hours a day in order to learn to do this trick. And let’s not even talk about how many pillows the Russian trainer tore up in anger when the cat f**ked up.
