Charleston cat's Olympics purrticipation goes viral

This is a screen grab from the Instagram account of @russelldpowell.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- When it comes to supporting the home team, this Charleston cat outperforms most. Not only does she watch Olympics volleyball like she's in a trance, she also plays along through the television.

We probably don't need to tell you the video has gone viral since it was posted Monday night by @russelldpowell on Instagram, and it has been shared by several news organizations.

"The Smoosh has gone viral," the video's owner posted on Instagram Tuesday. "Her #Olympics volleyball video was picked up overnight by the official @nbcolympics Facebook account, reaching 1.2+ million views before 10am. And she just hit @huffingtonpost as well with a dedicated article! If she wasn't planning world domination before, she certainly is now."

It doesn't get much cuter than this. Congrats to #TheSmoosh.
