Things cats have literally never done. Have you seen a cat?

Yep, it’s a skill. No one is more upset about it than me. Technically, a cat leap is supposed to involve some manner of flight and the knees being alternately lifted above horizontal, and while we are thankfully never subjected to such a thing in elite gymnastics, it is quite popular on NCAA beam, and the knees are never lifted above horizontal ever. 

It’s basically just walking.


Because gymnastics is a comedy, not a drama
