Viral Video: Moe the Cat an Expert at Playing Jenga

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Moe the cat is impressively good at Jenga, folks, so take some notes.

A video of Moe playing the relatively simple, but exceedingly frustrating, game was posted on YouTube earlier this month.


Moe switches from using his mouth to his paw to grab the little pieces of wood while managing not to knock down the tower."


"Jenga is a game of physical and mental skill created by Leslie Scott, and currently marketed by Parker Brothers, a division of Hasbro. During the game, players take turns removing one block at a time from a tower constructed of 54 blocks. Each block removed is then balanced on top of the tower, creating a progressively taller but less stable structure. "


Cats are fascinating; I like to chill by watching my cats interact with each other, myself and inanimate objects.

It`s no wonder cat videos rule supreme on the Internet, I`d rather watch a video of a feline playing with a string than most of the programming on TV.

A video of a kitty playing Jenga with his owner has garnered almost five million views. Cats excel at many games including tearing up the carpet, scratching the drapes, and tormenting the pooch, but I thought they would be too high-strung to do well playing Jenga.

Moe holds his own against his human opponent, although he steals turns, and at one point knocks over the top piece.

I don`t think I`m going to let my cats anywhere near a Jenga game; they would hide the pieces all over my house.
