This cat put professional climbers to shame in less than two minutes when she scaled a wall at the Bouldering Gym BOULBAKA in Okinawa, Japan. According to the gym’s staff, they had never trained her up, but she rose to the challenge anyway.

The Facebook video of the black cat’s great success had over six million views on December 1.

The kitty, who’s name is Lalah, looks like she was born to climb the boulder. The original video says that "She must have been eager for climbing up to the top before she became proper size to reach to the next hold (colored rocks) while watching people climbing everyday. In the last few weeks,her growth made it possible for it. So,she did it! We never trained her. She just accomplished her desire with no help. She must be happy and proud. We are also very happy and proud of her challenge and achievement!”

It would be silly of us to think that the gym staff had to train the feline to climb the boulder, since cats all over the world have been climbing walls, screen doors, trees and other vertical obstacles since the beginning of time (or the invention and subsequent massive use of said vertical obstacles). Cats in the wild do it too; panthers climb trees to sleep and scan the surroundings for prey.
