Sit, shake, roll over. These aren’t words we normally associate with “cat,” but Layne the Maine Coon does ‘em all in this adorable video. Layne’s caretaker, Darren, filmed his furry friend doing tricks in 2007 to dispute Rush Limbaugh’s claim that cats are dumber than dogs.

Of course, the real proof of feline superiority comes from a brief cameo by Darren’s other cat, Mike, who earns himself a treat “just for being a cat!”
