The news has been a real bummer lately so if you're looking for a little pick-me-up, the highly-skilled Savitsky cats from America's Got Talent might be just the thing to lift those spirits.

Even if you aren't much of a cat person (how dare you), it's impossible not to be impressed by these four-legged felines who really brought the thunder in the season premiere. In the highly entertaining video above, watch as these fierce creatures leapfrog over each another with ease, scale parallel bars without even breaking a sweat, and then leap from an extremely high post onto... a pillow (gasp!).

It's even more impressive when you consider that cats have a mind of their own and aren't so keen on being told what to do by their human overlords. But despite a minor hesitation which required some tender coercion by their trainers, the adorable furballs finished their standout performance and received a ticket to the next round for their troubles.

If they don't end up taking home the million-dollar prize, they've also got a pretty good shot at joining a super-secret spy organization and eventually taking over the world. I hear Treadstone is hiring.

America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
