I'm a terribly uncoordinated person. Sports have simply never been my thing. If a ball comes flying at my head, my first instinct is to duck for cover, NOT try to come in contact with it. Most people seem to be more sporty than me - apparently, even cats.
A family started throwing soccer balls at their cat one day and realized he did more than just playfully bat at them.
As soon as a soccer ball goes hurtling toward the goal, this cat is there to try and stop it - and does so, every time.
