Internet Falls in Love With Incredible Somersaulting Cat: '10/10 for Me'

The internet has fallen in love with an adorable cat who does somersaults on command, delighting millions of viewers.

Norah, a fluffy black moggy, has mastered the impressive skill, in contrast to her sister, Miso.

Their owner has been sharing videos of her two adorable cats on her TikTok page, @misoandnorah, where the pair have racked up more than 2.5 million views.

One, shared last week, piqued the interest of TikTokers, as the owner says off-camera "do it," as Norah promptly does a flip.

"Yay good job, do another one," she says, and Norah obliges. The video then cuts to Miso, as their owner asks: "What can you do? Nothing. Okay."

Miso gives a doleful meow in response, with the video captioned: "One sister is more talented than the other..."

Ever since the clip blew up, their owner has been sharing more clips, displaying Norah's athleticism, and Miso's vocal abilities.

Commenting on their most popular video, Tac0caT joked: "The second cat "I'm cute, I don't need to do anything else.""

Cierra Galvan pointed out: "Everyone is worried about her carpet but no one is talking about how her cat did a somersault on command."

While Pocketnugs quipped: "I think you mean catwheel."

Imbiamba_ reckoned: "One is talented and one is pretty."

Zizzlefizzy raved: "The cartwheels, and then the chonk, I'm gonna explode [from] the cuteness."

Itsniaboo wrote: "Oh yeah cartwheel cat."

"'Do a barrel roll!' I feel really old for saying that," Tatertotts09 added.

Responding to questions over how Norah picked up the talent, their owner revealed: "For those wondering how she started doing this: it started with us given her taps on her behind.

"She would elevator bum so hard she'd flip over. Eventually she learned she could [wave emoji] her own behind without us."

On Wednesday, @misoandnorah shared another clip as their legions of fans demanded more cartwheeling content.

"People want to see you do more somersaults," she says, as Norah does an ungraceful flip.

"Five out of 10," she says, as the black moggy does another attempt, and bashes a cupboard. But she gets a higher score, as their owner notes: "Eight out of ten."

The clip was jokingly captioned "Norah's always a 10/10 for me," as people shared their own scores in the comments.

Ivory Ebonyit joked: "Was at least a 9,5 in our opinion."

And Shona wilson added: "10 from me."

While dogs are well-known for responding to commands and rolling over, sitting and heeling on command, it's less heard of in cats.

Contrary to popular belief cats can be taught tricks—such as somersaults—although it's usually rare to see the aloof creatures following orders.

Pet food website Purina notes: "Cats can learn all sorts of commands—to sit, to roll over, to shake a paw.

"Cats like to do things in their own good time, so to train them we need to be really motivated, set aside some time and above all, be patient.

"Remember, cats are individuals and each one will react differently when training begins.

"Some will ignore you or look at you as if you are mad, whilst others will be very curious and eager.

"Teach one trick at a time. You can reinforce tricks your cat has mastered, but don't confuse them by teaching more than one new behaviour at a time."

They added that cats are "motivated to do things in life that benefit them," so using treats or toys is a good way to get them to comply.

Newsweek has reached out to @misoandnorah for comment.
