Go!

The mighty hunter finds his prey in the glass.

The vision system that made the Robot Signal Light illegal per example c of R9

This team won the Innovation in Controls Award for their groundbreaking SLAM algorithm (Simultaneous Localization And Meowing).

Benefits to using a cat as your robot:
Agile. Quick. Will easily accomplish any climbing task.
Highly Tip resistant. Always lands on its feet. Self Righting.
Autonomy and Vision included.

Potential drawbacks:
Claws could be considered damaging to playing surface.
Tends not to play nicely with others.
Highly unmotivated. Difficult to train.

After 2 days, 4 hours, and 12 minutes, Fluffy still refused to concede the staring contest.
