A spastic cat stars in your moment of schadenfreude

Cats. They're like the most popular girl in high school: They're aloof, they think they're smarter than you, and the more you love them, the more they don't care about you. Unlike the most popular girl in high school, though, you can amuse them endlessly by cutting a hole in a paper bag and wiggling your finger around in it. This is the redeeming feature of cats: In spite of their constant bitchiness, they have a bizarre irrational streak that makes them occasionally hilarious, as is the case in this video of a cat who, seemingly without reason, takes off into a wall.

Get the itch. Relax. Must run now. The best part, probably, is the cat's contemplative stare in the direction of the camera -- that even, calculating gaze -- before it defies reason and jumps into the wall. Remember that same gaze from the most popular girl right after you finally got up the courage to ask her out? If only she had reacted the same way.

In your mind, now she can.
