Meet Mike, The Curious Cat Who Decided To Take Up Paw-tery.

With more than 48 years of experience, Jim Young is a master potter. As the cofounder of Van Hollow Pottery, he certainly does not need any help when he sits down to work at his pottery wheel.

But when a curious cat decided to join in, Jim was too entranced by the cuteness to protest. In a video capturing the precious interaction, a striped orange cat named Mike gently bats at the clay spinning on the wheel, imitating Jim’s technique.

Jim observes that the cat has clay all over his little paw. No sooner have the words left his mouth than Mike shakes his paw, flicking clay in Jim’s face!

Enjoy watching Mike’s attempt at crafting paw-tery below, and don’t forget to share.
