Adorable Cat Really Wants To Play Olympic Beach Volleyball

She thinks she's part of Team USA.

It’s a dream for many to compete at the Olympics.

Even this cute kitty seems desperate to be part of Team USA’s beach volleyball side in Rio de Janeiro.

The adorable feline was caught on camera trying to play along with Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross during their match against China on Monday.

“Turns out the cat is a big Olympics volleyball fan,” said Instagram user Russell Douglas Powell in a video that’s going viral.

“She’s basically trying to play along with #KerriWalshJennings through the TV.”

Maybe the cat’s backing gave the American players a boost, as they ran out 2-0 winners. Their next group game against Switzerland is on Wednesday.
