Keys’ human, Peter Mares from California, accidently discovered the pose as Keys tossed her paws up in the air in a stretching motion one morning. Peter grabbed his camera and snapped a picture. Mares thought it was a one-time incident until Goalkitty did it again the next day.

He rewarded the cat with her favorite treat and now every time she receives a treat, he says “I know what you want.” He says that is the magic phrase to get her paws up.

“Every time I pop out my camera and say the magic (phrase), she poses,” he told HuffingtonPost.
