    A very lucky or smart cat plays a shell game in this video. The shell game, also known as thimblerig, is a synonym of mug’s game. In confidence trick slang, this swindle is referred to as a short-con because it is quick and easy to pull off.

    But this cat from Japan called Snow is definitely not a simpleton easy to trick. Look at this amazing video that shows him guessing correctly which of the cups hides the ball, no matter how fast his owner shuffles them.

    Cats are surprisingly good at the shell game with their perfect hearing and smell that allows them to find the ball under the cup. They also may see tiny behavioral signals from their owners.
